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.
Creativity FTW. I am on a "making stuff" roll at the moment, so here is a SHORT version of the Fret No More bookcase (based on cmo's TS3 version) I converted to TS2. It has 12 slots for placing items and acts like a bookcase.



OK, listen CAREFULLY.......

There are FOUR variations of this bookcase.

1) Basegame menu and repositoried to the Tall bookcase

2) Basegame menu with stand alone textures

3) FreeTime and above menu and repositoried to the Tall bookcase

4) FreeTime and above menu with stand alone textures

Choose the ONE you want.

Yay! I love short bookcases and I've been hoping for the short version ever since the Fret No More bookcase. (Go, slots!) Thank you very, very much for this!

Um, did you come into my house and take pictures? 'Cause this looks almost exactly like the shelf thing next to my sister's bed. Now the next time I create a sim of her, her room will look even closer to her real-life counterpart's. ~VP

I prefer shorter bookcases as they don't block the view, so thank you for making a non-slaved one.

@ DutchXfan - yes, I like repository too, but it can have its drawbacks when it is slaved to a custom item.

@Gwenke - exactly - I didn't want people to HAVE to get the other one

@ VioletPadfoot - you got me - those wet fin prints on the windowsill - that was me with my spy camera :p

Always nice to have a matching set. Plus, this will free up some wall space for something over the bookcase. :D

I just got a chance to see this in my game today and wanted to tell you how great it looked. I'm so going to download the taller bookcase now.

Thanks!

I love this, thank you so much for making both versions. I love items that contain slots as it reduces the number of OMSPs and the effort required to place them properly.

I have a strange problem with this bookcase. I have the repositoried BG version in my game and it looks bright blue in the catalogus. I can select the grey recolor and it looks fine in-game but not the original color. Do you have any idea what went wrong?

Edit: Forgot to say that I also have the master in the game!

@Isa-WP , sorry to reply so late, but I was editing this upload and saw your post only today. I don't know if the file was broken before, but while editing I checked the updated version in game and it seems to be fine now.
