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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
STICKERS!!!!!

(cough) Here is a small wallshelf found in the IKEA SP. It is decorative, and has no functional slots. I uploaded as fast as I could before some other simmer did it first Slot version coming along later..... IS UPDATED



Update

As requested I have added two more versions of this wall shelf - Prices and recolours remain as the original file, you can put both of these new additions in your downloads folder, just remove the old file. These ones will NOT go down with the walls (like paintings do) as if they did any objects on the shelf will float in space - which looks daft. You can of course still move them up and down the wall for placement if you have AL or above installed.

Lazeelamb Version
- has the deco on the shelves and three slots on top.

Emptied six slots - like it says on the tin, emptied with 6 slots. See the footprint picture

Recolours
The shelf is repo linked to 2 IKEA SP items. The frame is linked to the BILLY Bookcase and is fully recolourable, picking up any recolours of the billy bookcase you may have in your downloads folder.

The books and CDs are linked to the billy bookcase books and are NOT recolourable. If you have a default replacement of the bookcase with less blurry books in then these books will de-blur too.
The vase and Rabbit DO recolour as I had to make the textures for them. I have added ONE recolour as shown in the pics.

Prices and catalog location
In decorative wallhangings, 58 simoleons

Picture Credits
Door and bookcase by me, the tables are the Holy Simoly Phoenix table, which I got in a house I downloaded and Honeywell's Lost and Found BENNO table. I stacked the wallshelves using the OFB many things on one wall wall shelf placement trick (hold down ctrl+ALT - once in place click right and left side of mouse simultaneously) in combination with the AL move up and down wall keys.

Eeee! Why the heck would Maxis hide this shelf and not finish it?! It's so cute! Thanks for the excavation, Lee!

(Slot versions are all well and good, but I appreciate the pre-fab version that's ready to use and won't have me searching for the perfect deco for half an hour. Will still be returning to grab the slot version too though, of course.)

PS: Will the slot version have slots on top of the shelf? I vote for slots on top of the shelf too!

I agree with Fansee. On top of the shelf would be great!

UPDATE

OK, we are progressing nicely here. I broke it Then I fixed it.

We now have slots, and slots that hold many things - however, this meant BREAKING the link to the AL shiftable thingy - so now it has rinky-dink super suave EPDetector thing - if you have AL or M&G - built in up and down shifting BHAV - if you don't well you don't see it. Am feeling very smug. Just need to empty it and add a few more slots.

Weeee! Oh thank you for the slotified versions, Lee! Lazeeelamb shelf is gonna get a lot of use in my game. I suspect the 6 slot and standard versions will as well.

Excellent. Just a quick clarification - is it possible to have all three versions in the game at the same time, or not? And the two new ones don't move up/down the walls?

Hmm, its not possible to have all three in at once. The lazeelamb overwrites the deco version.They DO move up and down in my test game, but I will double check. You have AL installed? You dont need AL for these to be ok in your game (just IKEA), but you DO need AL or later for the move up and down.

ETA: Downloaded the two files from this thread, put them in an empty anygame with base/IKEA/AL. I tested and they both moved up and down the wall using the [ and ] keys.

I also edited the attachment descriptions for extra clarity.
