Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

How long has it been since i uploaded anything!

I sincerely apologize, but I've been wildy busy with my own site. Anyhow, in collaboration with the great Numenor and Universalsims we present you with a new object for you siming pleasure.

Quite simply, it's a magazine holder that attaches to the wall like a painting. At this time, Sims can only grab books, but the animations have been tweaked so nothing is being grabbed from "thin" air.

If you like this, please feel free to grab the rest of the set shown in the last screenshot at:

no ep required, recolorable, under 2k polycount etc...

Recolor policy:
Recoloring is permitted, but only on this site for now.

Just wanted to note, that this IS available on a community lot but since it's been cloned from a bookcase rather then the Maxis magazine rack, sims will not need to pay simoleons to read the books.

Style: Contemporary
Room: Living Bedroom Study
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
