This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

IMPORTANT NOTICE
Due to the format change introduced in the 1.26/1.27 patch, PETS EP, these objects ARE NOT compatible with games patched at or above 1.26/1.27, PETS.
Please check back later as objects are updated. Thank You.

Here are some more shelves to fill your game with. These ones are not bound to the wall, so are very useful anywhere.

Find them in: Surfaces -> Displays

Yeah that's a mirror on the back wall of the case




I hope you enjoy these. And yes. It was painstaking adding almost 100 slots. Haha :D

Updates
  • None

Polygon Counts:

4A/6A are the glass hanging shelves
5A/7A are the solid hanging shelves
8A/1B are the glass rack shelves
9A/2B are the solid rack shelves
3B-4B are the curio cases

Misc.
Thanks to Cadorno12
[...To get the things out of these curios... Just move them into the "family Inventory" in "buymode". That will automatically remove all items placed in them....!]

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

keepmesafe10120: Some people seem to have problems while others do not. What version do you have? Also I'll upload a Sims3Pack version which, as I'm told, works to fix the problem.

I like your shelving and I really like your curio shelves. However, I can't tell by the way you have them named in the download file which is which. Could you clarify, please? Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I'm curious about that as well. I only want a few of the shelves, but the files aren't named very descriptively.

3B-4B are the curio cases

I'm sorry they aren't descriptive, bu it is very efficient for me. Future uploads will tell you which are which.

I love the curio cases - have needed something like them for a very long time. I have all of your other shelves too and use them all over my homes. Thanks for taking the time to create these and for sharing them with all of us.

Which of the hanging and rack shelves are the glass versions?

And thanks for making the tv I suggested. Are you going to upload it here?

I edited my above post.

Whoden: Yes, they are in the queue now, just The Sim Supply is smaller and has less uploaders so approval is MUCH faster than here.

I love the shelves, thank you for them. However, I don't know if it's just me or if others hava same problem---namely, I can't get the items placed to the curio cabinet out of it. I can't crab them in buy mode, neither can I interach with them in play (inventory) mode.

I've been looking into that problem, and haven't decided yet if i want to leave it as is, with the warning, or remove the front glass panes..

Yes there is away to get the things out of these curios... Just move them into the "family Inventory" in "buymode". that will automatically remove all items plced in them. I found this out by chance!

I'm also having problems with getting things out of the curio cabinet. I know that you can family inventory it, but maybe there's a way to copy over the code in the EA display shelves which can toggle the glass?

Either way, thanks for the shelves!
