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 mesh override plus two additional versions of the Maxis “Caress” bookcase. The original could have been nice, but then someone went and stuck those fugly columns and ornaments on it >.<



A low two-tile version of this is available here.

The override eliminates all of the ornaments, gives the books a more normal size, and also adds some slots to the object (two on the shelves and eight or so on top). The new meshes also have slots on top. They all have the same ten colour variants and are using the textures of the original. Available where the other bookcases are for 900§ (tall single-tile) / 380§ (low single-tile); the price and stats of the original is unchanged.

On the screenshots, the override mesh has a slight glitch (the back corner of the top right book went for a walk) but that is fixed in the actual object.

Two-tile (Override) ‒ Low Poly: 1153V/660F | Original: 1784V/958F
Two-tile (Override) ‒ Sun Shadow: 319V/426F | Original: 898V/1232F‒747V/958F

I love the changes. I never used the EA one for the same reason. Now I will! As always, thank you.

They look very interesting, thanks :)
P.S. I agree, that ornaments are slightly unfitting the great part of the houses I build. Moreover the tall one-tile-wide bookcase will be rather useful!

Is there a non-override version of these? I actually do like the original, but these are also really nice :^)

No, there isn't. The files are in separate packages though, so if you don't want the override you can simply remove that and keep the rest.

This is awesome! I literally laughed so hard when I saw that you called the ornaments/columns fugly. Lol... idk why I laughed so hard... just made me giggle because I always felt the same. Like... stop trying so hard, things are usually prettier when they're simpler lol.
