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.
A total Brain flatulent moment. The idea of this is to have a display cabinet that any decrotive object can be placed in and still viewd by a sim's pie menue. With the advent of SimPE updates and the new import object function the clickable area stays the same as the cloned object. These were cloned from the 'Numica Allinall Card Table'; for the 1sq x 1sq cabinet the 'Counter productive Work Surface'; for the 2sq x 1sq cabinet and the 'Manor House Paree Dining Table'; for the 3sq x 1sq cabinet. The form of the cabinets are plagiarized 'Counter productive work surface' mesh with the glass top added also the texture has been plagiarized from said object. Back to the idea. This was to give more scope for objects in the home or to create a community lot museum/art gallery for the sims to visit.

Mesh and Texture MilkShape 1.7.4
Package file created with SimPE 38c

Colour enabled
Poly count 1sq x 1sq cabinet 554
poly count 2sq x 1sq cabinet 656
poly count 3sq x 1sq cabinet 780

In game they will be found under surfaces/miscellaneous and community buy mode miscellaneous/surfaces

IMPORTANT (Texture Fix 12June05)
The 3sq x 1sq Had a texture problem Thanks for Havelock's screen shot the surface was showing up blue meaning the texture was not showing. This was due to a spelling misstake in the Shape parts list that I did not spot. Just download the again and over write the origonal file.

feel free to recolour. Hope they are ok.

I hit your thank you button but wanted to add that I have wanted a display case that objects could actually be placed in. You gave me, and others, 3 of them! Thank you! They all look really good in the game.
