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.
I just can't take empty space. I'm one of those people that just has to fill it up. And that huge empty desk space was getting on my nerves. So, I decided to fix my problem. Maybe you can enjoy it too. I created a glass and wood desk mat. Almost like the one I used to use at work.

Mat On Desk


I cloned this package from the Designer end table. It still has it's original functions as an end table. You can use it that way if you want. Just remember it was scaled as a desk mat. The height is adjusted to fit every desk in the base game (sits right on top), and the object is thin.
End table Use



Also, because of the height adjustment flat objects like magazines and notepads may sit in the glass. Take a look below.


It uses all the recolor options and is CAStable in game. As usual, the glass may be recolored following Orangemittens' tutorial. Look in the attachments to see the clarity of the glass



Look for it in Buy->Decor->MiscDecor->Glass Desk Mat for 25 simoleans. To use this item you must use the Moveobjects On cheat to place mat on the desk (remember it still functions as an end table). Then hold ALT to center where you like. Objects that are too big for and endtable, like computers, will still sit on the desk. This way you can use them and the mat at the same time.

Object Description
Need something to fill that empty space on the desk. How about a desk mat. Use cheat moveobjects on to place on desk and hold the Alt key to center. Then you can just place smaller clutter pieces on top. Just be careful not to break it. Created by Hisui_hana

Edit-Teens will use the desk for homework like normal with the mat on top. See screenshots for additional photos. Remember, the notebook is a flat object.
