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


So now your bookshelves are all filled with clutter, but you have nowhere to put your books? Behold, The Book of Knowledge (echoes)! This book has the capacity of a bookshelf, in the size of a book, to be placed on shelves, desks, tables, end tables, ect.


Just click on the book, select "open Book of Knowledge" and drag and drop books from/ to the sim's inventory for reading. note: The "Put Away" option does not apply to this object. You must drag the book to/from the sim's inventory.

But wait there's more...


It is wrapped in fine high-grade leather in three preset colors: red w/gold text, blue w/gold text, and blue w/o text. It has two recolorable channels (great for personalizing book collections). And that's not all...

Did I mention that they are stackable? That's right, you can have your book collections in a neat stack on a shelf, or a not-so-neat stack on the floor (some other objects can also be placed on top of the book). How high is up to you...

Act now and get The Book of Knowledge for the low price of 45 siml. Found in Surfaces/Storage.

Polys: 36

Updated: 11.7.10
Updated for Late Night. (Ambitions version depreciated)

Updated: 6.6.10
Added interaction to add books from family inventory
Added version updated for Ambitions


Additional Credits:
Special thanks to buzzler, for giving me the final piece I needed to make this work how I wanted.

Thanks to those who suggested I make this.

Thanks to Wes Howe, Inge Jones and PLJones, Ceixari, ChaosMageX, and Delphy for the tools.

So, does it work with the current patch? I've got all expansions/stuff packs (just picked up town life earlier than planned because I really wanted to play but apparently packed my Generations disc. oops)
Anyone?

Does this work with Pets.?

As the creator has not posted in this thread since Jan 2011, I assume it is a defunct mod and should not be used - great pity.

EDIT: My bad, it does work - see post below.

I can confirm that this mod does not work with all the expansion packs. It crashes my game completely. I suspect it is Pets or Generations that crashes it since I installed them together and it was working fine prior to installing them. If you want to test it to see which one it crashes, it is fairly easy to remove from the game and I have no problems now that I took it out of my game.

It does work, if you run the "Rigfix program". This is due to a change with Pets.

I ran 3 sim days using 3 books and no crashes.

I have installed all expansions including pets and showtime. This mod crashes my game every time. I am disappointed that I can't use this (I used to have it in my game many months ago). Hope you are going to update it soon............

Default Is this compatible with Patch 1.38/Supernatural?
Does this mod still work for patch 1.38 & Supernatural? I'm curious. I'd love to save some space and this is pretty brilliant! I can have all of my sim's favorite books right on their nightstand. Then I can drag them back when they fall asleep. I'll check back soon and see if there's any replies to my question. If it doesn't still work, do you think that this will be updated? (I hope so! Well, I hope it still works in game!)

Great job on making a fantastic item!

Thank you!

could you update this to 1.48 please? I've been wanting to download this, but it crashes my game.

#97 Old 25th Feb 2013 at 8:13 AM
yeah... guess not. now it needs updating to 1.50. I kinda liked this mod and have always wanted to clear the room a bit of all the bookshelves. This would have done wonders cuz I could still let my sims have books, but on a smaller scale.

This is great. Will it carry the new texts up to University perhaps? Oh and does it need updating too?
