It's Topless!

This is an addon to the RoeDisplay shelves that came with OFB. The shelf is a clone of the "Quick Display" shelf and take the textures from the RoeDisplay shelf. If you need to recolor this particular object, recolor the original (outer) shelf.

The item was built with the Ultimate Collection installed. In an AnyGameStarter environment this download was used with Open For Business and Mansion and Gardens. So OFB is at least required, but may require Mansions and Gardens.

The recolor shown is by Michelle.

There are two versions:
- The topless version
- The topless "tall window" version

What are the differences between the regular and "tall window" shelves?
As shown below from the front shots and back shots, there is a subtle difference from the front, as not much has changed there. The major difference is in the back, the regular version "eats" through the glass, where the "TallWindow" version "hugs" the frame.

Great for Window Displays*
The tall window version of the display was made to "hug" the frame of windows.

*If you use just the topless version, you should probably use a window that's up higher than the shelf, otherwise the shelf will go through the window part.

As shown in the image below, you can see how the "regular" topless shelf differs from the "tall window" shelf:

I was setting up a shop last week and was frustrated with the shelf/window conflict. Thank you so much for this!
