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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated 27-Oct-09** Fixed Club desk in the HL_base_1TileDesks.rar.

A variety pack of one-tile desks, from Base game up to Apartment Life. Each file is labeled with what EP/SP is required. Each one is a slave to the two-tile version and takes all Maxis/EA plus custom colors. All desks cost one-half the amount of the two-tile one...well, because there half the desk!

I realize some of these have been done, but most that I know of are pay and I do not use pay items so I needed an alternative. I have done all of the desks that I like and use and I have no idea why it has taken me this long to get to this. I have no immediate plans to make more, but who knows.

Each desk has the main slot for computer/homework plus the original secondary slot moved over and to the rear. The Country one has an additional slot added. (...ignore the shadow on the Atomic one...its been fixed...)

The secondary slot also works great for MogHughson's Desk Locator or the UNI Desk Locator. Thanks Cat for reminding me what I forgot to mention.

Polygon Counts:
Asian - 395
Club - 437
Economy - 188
Quaint - 1474
Mission - 1118
Atomic - 972
Country - 2691
Goth - 1313
Fredrik - 428
Bohemian - 1482
Tech - 940

kiwianagirl - it probably isn't you, I reuploaded them after unzipping them all again myself. WinRAR is giving me fits lately.

Thank you.

These look super-spiffy, thanks!

One question though: if I remember correctly (and if it's me, who knows?) the country desk was hardcoded so children would not use it to do homework. Will your mini-desk have the same behavior?
Me? Sarcastic? Never.

Fansee - I Uploaded new ones yesterday. Are they still corrupt for you? I just downloaded them and they unarchived fine.

harlequin_eyes - I cloned a base game desk for the seasons one, so any hard coding should be gone.
