Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Were you as irritated as me to discover that objects placed on the Generation shelves can't be rotated?
Well this file fixes that!



I haven't altered what type of objects can be placed, only that they can now be rotated. As a result, when certain objects are rotated they may block adjacent slots. This usually occurs when objects are placed sideways.

Note: If a lot is decorated using this mod and the lot is then shared, any downloader who does not have this mod in their game will still have the objects rotated UNLESS they attempt to move or alter the decorations at which point they will snap back into the default position.

The resources that have been altered are:

shelfWall1x1_rig RSLT 0xCE3B2D4B492BDE76
shelfWall2x1_rig RSLT 0x56C2BFF37C100909

If you have any other mods that alter these files then they WILL conflict.

Thanks so much for this! I always put gems on those shelves and that problem was pretty annoying.

Wonderful! I'd only recently noticed that I couldn't rotate items until I tried to put a cut gem on the short shelf and it insisted on putting it in an odd direction that I couldn't change. XP

Oh my God! Thank you. I hated using that shelf but, a lot of times, it was the only option. I mean, c'mon! Sims aren't really that OCD that everything has to be lined up, just so, are they?

This is a great mod! Can you make it for the Katy Perry ST shelf?

I don't actually own KPST and have no plans on purchasing it but if you can send me a clone of the object from S3OC then I could see what I can do.

You know, it doesn't matter. I checked up and the KPST shelf is also affected by this mod, so thanks

I realize this is an object mod, and so is unlikely to be affected by patches/expansions, but it would still be very helpful if you could put a "still safe to use with patch/expansion number xxxxx" at the top of the page. It would be very much appreciated.

You are correct in your assumption.
I also find it much easier to state if a download is NOT compatible with a certain patch than having to go through every one of my download threads to update them each time a new patch is out.
Unless someone reports a specific issue, then you should assume that the object still functions as normal. Trying it in your game won't break it anyway if you don't save after checking.

No reason really, it was just the first item I thought would be easy to see was rotatable on a shelf. Much easier to tell than with the tissue box which most people use to show slot placements. Probably because it's a Generations item too.
Also, I've only ever seen one episode of MLP:FiM on Youtube so I'm certainly not a brony.
