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.
**Updated to add a set of shelves which have no shadow. These will overwrite the original set so you can only have one of the sets in your game at a time. The shadow-free set is identical to the original set in every way except that the shelves will cast no shadow indoors or outside.**

This is a glass shelving system that works as a freestanding shelf or will go on walls. It will not require a cheat to use as shown in the pictures. It has two choices of upright support, a single upright panel (works for both sides of the corresponding shelf) or a cylindrical bar (one mesh, two cylindrical bars). The set contains 5 glass shelves, 4 glass upright panels, & 4 double cylindrical bars.

Other items can be placed under the shelves & each shelf has 5 slots. This system will mix and match with my solid Versatile Shelves. In game pictures:

A picture showing how the cylinder bars tile is below. They have a single recolorable channel while the glass is not recolorable. Each component is located in Buy/Surfaces/Miscellaneous and costs $10.

The shelves look good with a variety of styles and are meant for the indoors. If you use them outside they need shade to make their shadow look completely right.

Mesh Names:
Glass shelves - Shelf_GlassV1-V5
Glass uprights - Shelf_GlassVU2-VU5
Cylindrical bars - ShelfBars_VU2-VU5
