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.

The popular shelf, the String Shelf

Now updated for Pets and patch



"Puppet on a String"! Yes, yes, I know I'm very funny ......not!


Well, yes, this was a very, very useful and common shelf here in Sweden in the 50's and are now a high-profile retro items. And now your sims can have it, everyone can afford it.

I also saw that the shelf new produced now but nothing can replace the "original". I think that IKEA sells it!

The shelf is expandable like a modular system and full CAST-able so don't forget to play with the colors and textures.

I've also make it with a "footprint" that makes it possible to place the shelf over existing objects without cheats. But you must first place the other object, then the shelf. The opposite is not possible.



There are five slots on each shelf.

The shelf can be find among the surfaces - other, not the bookshelfs, and cost only $ 65.

Polygon Counts:
The shelf have 1266 vertices and 1420 faces.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Don't put it over a bed though... my parents had one fall down on them when they were sleeping, books and all! (IRL, before I was born)

I wonder, are all of us nostalgia-spouters Swedish, or were these shelves common in other countries too?

Glee! I have been dying for something like this to display vacation souvenirs and knick-knacks. The EA-provided display shelves are just WAY too massive for an actual home. I can't wait to put this in every house I play.

No, I have to choose and I chose this variant that is easy to place over other objects.
