Single-Tile “Intellect” Bookcases

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.
Two single-tile versions of the Maxis “Towering Intellect” bookcase that match my mesh override from here (which makes it less deep).




They have 12 colour variants each; three are referenced from the Maxis bookcase and nine are custom. For the custom ones you need to download the “Intellectual Bookcases Recolours” from here; they contain all the textures. Also, the screenshots are taken using texture overrides for the Maxis colour variants from this post (the mesh override one); they are not very different, only the books have slightly different colours.

The tall bookcase costs 1.000§, the medium-height one 650§. They both have some slots on top and one on the shelves; the books are rearranged in each of them so they don’t look too repetitive when used in combination with other “Towering Intellect” add-ons. Note that these are not flush when put side by side (they are less than one tile wide, just like the original) -- if you want a seamless wall of bookcases, either move these around holding [alt] or use the Simple Symmetry Add-Ons instead.


Polygon Counts:

Aspiring Intellect (medium height): 498V/244F
Sun Shadow: 28V/40F
Towering Intellect Single Tile (full height): 752V/390F
Sun Shadow: 60V/64F

Technical note: these still have 32bit IDs even though that is not necessary (and shouldn’t be done) any more because they are old -- I’ve had them for a while, just never got around to uploading them.

This is going to be so incredibly useful! I don't know if I'd even bother playing the game without the additions and edits you've made, they are all just that perfect.

I think 'depth' would be the word, right?

_danh is absolutely right in this context.

plasticbox, I haven't written enough in these pages to say how much I appreciate all that you've done in the Sims world(s). Your small houses in S2 were a revelation; best addition to the game by far. Thank you very much; long may you continue to make EA's basic ideas so much better!

Nice addition to the game, thanks for making more room in our little homes.

Wide describes the measurement from side to side.
Depth is the distance between the front and back.

Thanks for the English lessons =D .. width and height were already familiar to me, it was just the "Depth" that seemed weird. I guess I should update the first post now?

Plasticbox, there's an error in you aspiring intellect bookcase texture. It shows as red, blue, green. Could you fix this?

It doesn't have a separate texture. Did you download the recolours like it says in the OP?

Since Plasticbox hasn't been around in a long time and I've fixed these for my own use, you can download the updated / fixed single-tile Aspiring Intellect and Towering Intellect bookcases here, along with the Cordelia set too: https://siletkasims.tumblr.com/post...-tile-bookcases

When PB comes back I will take these down.
