9/15/12--v.2--Added extra slot to the Slotted Stack O'Books so that multiple book piles might be placed one atop the other and be neatly stacked, per request! Also, verified that all meshes are compatible with patch 1.38.

When I buy a set from the Sims 3 Store, I expect a minimal level of quality…not a monstrosity of a bookshelf that appears to have been created during a developer’s Vicodin dream.

I mean, why? Why, EA, why?

While the bookshelf is fugly, the shelf decorations are rather pretty, even if they are IOUS--Items of Unusual Size. The seashell is twice as big as a Sim’s head, and must have been home to Snailzilla, Mollusk of Renown, while the enormous starfish looks like it had been feeding on radioactive krill for a few dozen decades…but the daisies and the feather-in-vase are more or less normal. So I felt that these items deserved to be liberated from this oppressive bookshelf.

All of the items have been made recolorable, except for the stack of books. But! I added a slot to the stack of books, so you can stack more stuff on top of them.

I retextured the peacock feather-in-a-vase just because, and added recolorability to the vase and to the little eye near the feather’s top.

Radioactive Starfish and Snailzilla, Mollusk of Renown were smallinated to a more reasonable size. Radioactive Starfish should be leaned against a backdrop of some kind, or else it looks like it is out for a stroll on the coffee table. (I was going to make a second starfish to hang on the wall, but I saw a squirrel and ran off…)

More pictures, including a channel and mapping picture, are included among the thumbnails at the bottom of the page.

No expansion or stuff packs are needed. All meshes were play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.36, and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.36. They might work on other levels, but there are no guarantees.

I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have here in this thread and I’ll put Lt. Commander Lilliput of the Faire Folk Force on it right away. Really.
