09/08/2020 UPDATE : Updated to include every missing shelf up to NIFTY-KNITTING!
NOTE: The Island Living shelves, also have a big TV slot, to create your entertainment units!


If you have any problems while unpacking, be sure to try out both Winrar/7-zip/File Viewer + updating to their latest versions


No, you are not dreaming. You can now use shelves the way they're supposed to be used....you know...BY PUTTING ITEMS ON THEM!!
Items other than these 2 books, that everyone uses everywhere. (You know exactly what books I'm talking about )

So what does this mod do exactly?
This mod adds additional decorative slots on each and every one of EA's shelves.
More specifically:

  • I added a couple more small slots for a bit more flexibility when placing objects.
  • I added brand new medium slots so you can have even more decor options while decorating.
  • I added brand new large slots on certain shelves that were big enough. (On large slots you can also put small TV's and Stereos!)
  • I also fixed some misplaced slots on certain shelves (such as the The Leash Wrangler that came with the Cats & Dogs EP)

Here is an example, of some shelves with stereos and TV's on them:


SUPER IMPORTANT NOTE

In order to place medium and large items on the shelves you will NEED to activate THE BB.MOVEOBJECTS ON cheat!!!
I'm not sure why that happens (probably because of some random collision issue) If I find a fix for that I'll be sure to update the mod.


FLAVORS
There are multiple flavors for those that don't have the required packs. Pick the MERGED flavor ONLY if you have all the specified packs!
If you don't, pick and choose the ones you have and download them seperately.


Warning!
The mod has been built and tested on game version 1.49.65.1020


!!!This mod overrides AND will conflict with any mod using the following resources!!!

None of the archives are password protected (obviously) As mentioned in the description "If you have any problems while unpacking, be sure to try out both Winrar/7-zip/File Viewer + updating to their latest versions"
Please always read the mod's description as it contains useful information.

Does the Merged one also contain the Eco Living fixes? I noticed in the description, it says, "UP TO DISCOVER UNIVERSITY, ALL-IN-ONE." If I'm interpreting that correctly, I'm assuming, if I have all the packs, I'll need both the merged, and the separated Eco Living one. Is this correct?

My mistake, yes it does include Eco-Lifestyle I'll be fixing it soon!

Everytime I try to open the rar files on the extract me website, it doesn't allow the files to unzip. I've even tried having my friends do it for me and they are encountering the same issue. Are the files corrupted?

@BrookieJulissa I would suggest getting a file extraction program. Not sure why this happens but I know some programs work better than others

Hey there,
I have the Merged file installed (yes, I have all the game packs) and I located a glitch with this mod installed. It made it so my people could not clear the dishes off the table. I found that my shelf was full of dirty dishes and they couldn't clean that off either. Also they could not clean off my desk either. I had to put all the dishes on the floor then they could clean them up. All three items were from the Eco game as well if that helps.

I wanted to let you know this was happening to me but if there are any hints/tips that I should know, let me know.

Other than that, Thanks for all the extra slots you have given us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

P.S. I went through taking out each mod and my sims were able to clear dishes after this one was removed. Also all the dishes on my shelf disappeared as well after it was removed. Also re-downloaded it to make sure it was updated and still the same thing.

@Melmermaid810 That's very odd. The only thing this mod does is to alter the slot resource of each shelf, so I'm not sure if that's what causing the issue? Were the shelves maybe too high up so sims couldn't reach the dishes? I'll try and see for myself whenever I can find some time.
