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.
A collection of EA bookcases emptied, slots added, and repo'd to their original counterparts.

*The Bookworm's Delight (FT) is identical to Dahlen Bookcases (UNI). I didn't do this one since leefish did in this upload.
*I did not empty the two from AL "Very Mysterious Shelving" and "Mysterious Looking Bookcase" because those are doors, adding deco to slots in doors may cause them not to be useable. Plus, I don't use them. =P
*There is a non-FT version of all but the bookcase that comes from AL, choose only one version as they use the same GUIDs.

Note: I do not have a AGS game to test the non-FT versions

Is a non-empty version of the Art Nouveau center bookcase available anywhere?
