This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Running out of places to put your stuff? Bookshelves shouldn't be just for books. So I cleared off the Bookshelf Revisited and added 21 slots.

This is not a functioning bookcase, so it doesn't produce books and such. This is now a functioning bookcase. Each shelf has 3 slots; left, middle, and right. Also, there are 3 slots on top.

It can be found in Surfaces/Storage and cost 500. Comes in the original bookshelf's preset colors.

Updated 7-8-12:
  • updated to 1.34
  • is now a functioning bookcase

Updated 5-27-10:
  • Edited RSLT to allow larger items
  • allows the use of objects with interactions
  • fixed catalog description

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Can I display my cut gems on these?
Test Subject
#14 Old 23rd Apr 2010 at 2:51 PM
Yes you can. Placing gems on the highest shelves is a bit of a challenge, but it works!

Item placement is easier if you do it from a higher angle. But it's been reported that you can't get 3 on a shelf with this bookshelf.

Raven Shadow has created a Stackable Wall Shelf kit(yes, you read that right, but read it again and think on it for a minute).
