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.

Why all the Maxis dressers are so huge is beyond me, but I found it annoying that they were blocking my view of my Sims so much and taking up so much floorspace. After many hours (days) of modification, testing, and learning the intricacies of multi-tile object footprints and other such nonsense, I was able to take a standard dresser from the original game and transmogrify it into this space-saving, single-tile "clothes hook" dresser.

Great for Sims on a budget (only 83 simoleans!), small homes, or even to put in a hallway or closet. Heck, you could even place this by the front door like a coat rack so your Sims won't have to go to the bedroom to change when they're on their way out the door.

Enjoy!

that is really cool. Much better than the regular dressers that take up like half your room. Thanks again.

This is great!
How about some clothes in a big heap on the floor?
Or all piled on a chair?
Now that's realism :P

Here's an idea: Stairs Pitch Slider.

Believe it or not, the "pile of clothes" dresser was an idea I thought of last night. Great for sloppy Sims.

Burn2Ash: It probably will work in Nightlife, seeing as how it's a simple dresser. Someone should try it and let me know if it works, so I can update the compatibility.

It's funny you should say that (another idea I had), when I was thinking about making this, I took all the different clothes from the clothes racks you see downtown. I was planning on making two versions, a male and a female one, but I wasn't sure if people would want more than one object, or simply a "universal" one like this one (it has both gender's clothing).

If I can remember what I did to make this work, I'll throw one together for all those girl Sims out there.

And as far as the "pile of clothes" dresser idea, Yuna's correct. I was thinking more along the lines of a messy pile of clothes on the floor, not like that stack of folded shirts object.

I've used Merola's one for quite sometime. I quite like this one, also, since it could be attached to the wall in places where I don't want to use up counter/table or floor space for the other one. "More-the-merrier" alternatives to space-hogging dressers!

Well, that's not quite accurate, as this is still technically a dresser and although it appears to be on the wall, it takes up the floor tile, not the wall tile. Not that it matters, as you wouldn't want to put anything on the floor in front of this anyway, otherwise your Sims couldn't get to it.
