This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
What I am bringing to you today are three (3) recolours of Numenor's wonderful working magazine rack.

Not only have I recoloured the wood but also the magazines too! The racks now come in white, black and dark brown.

I now have 2 MORE recolours HERE.

The white recolour comes with a "Miss Sim" magazine, the black recolour comes with "Sim Health" and the dark brown recolour comes with a simmified edition of "Heat". I also took the time and effort to recolour the backs of the magazines even though you never really see them in game.

Now please read the boring stuff below before downloading and then enjoy them in your game

All of the recolours for both types of rack are in the one zip file below. They are clearly labeled with rack colour and whether they are the vertical or the horizontal recolours so you can easily delete whichever you don't need/want.
You CANNOT delete a magazine recolour without also getting rid of the related rack recolour though as they are connected to one another. e.g. if you delete the "Miss Sim" magazine recolour you will also loose the white wood recolour.

Do not redistribute these recolours on any other site, pay or free. Please also do not use my magazine designs as bases for your own. I spent a lot of time on them.

It's the sim models and in-game art that really makes these fit so nicely into the game. They really look like they belong. Thanks for sharing.

Good job! I don't have anything against Boblishman, but having his face peeking at me from any magazine rack was making me a bit nervous

Brilliant! Thankyou for giviing us some more option for a great item.

If you ever find yourself at a loose end, might there be a chance of a wooden rack with plain magazine covers for those of us who don't play modern 'hoods?

Cool. I was hoping some recolors with Simlish would crop up soon. I don't so much care for English in my game.

I never include English in my recolours. Not unless I have too. Its not like Sims speak English anyway and it fits the games of those who can't speak/read English better as well.

: D Thanks. I love the rack, but it needed some colors. :] I really like how you also recolored the mags, that makes these recolors SOOOO much better than anything I could've cranked out 'cause I wanted some. My only beef is that you should make MOAR. xD lol. Thanks again.

A winner is you.
