Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
**Updated to add a set of shelves which have no shadow. These will overwrite the original set so you can only have one of the sets in your game at a time. The shadow-free set is identical to the original set in every way except that the shelves will cast no shadow indoors or outside.**
This is a glass shelving system that works as a freestanding shelf or will go on walls. It will not require a cheat to use as shown in the pictures. It has two choices of upright support, a single upright panel (works for both sides of the corresponding shelf) or a cylindrical bar (one mesh, two cylindrical bars). The set contains 5 glass shelves, 4 glass upright panels, & 4 double cylindrical bars.
Other items can be placed under the shelves & each shelf has 5 slots. This system will mix and match with my solid Versatile Shelves. In game pictures:
A picture showing how the cylinder bars tile is below. They have a single recolorable channel while the glass is not recolorable. Each component is located in Buy/Surfaces/Miscellaneous and costs $10.
The shelves look good with a variety of styles and are meant for the indoors. If you use them outside they need shade to make their shadow look completely right.
