Description

This is a mod for the Overachieving Plate Rack from the Sims 3 Store. It adds 5 decorative slots to the top of the rack (so that it can be used as a shelf), allows the rack to be moved up/down, and adds the rack to the Function -> Surfaces -> Display category.

The original EA object is a decorative sculpture that cannot be moved vertically on walls.

The Store plate rack must be installed for this mod to work. This mod is an override and does not include the object itself. The Overachieving Plate Rack can be obtained alone or as part of the Bayside Kitchen Set or the Full Bayside Set.

Repositionable:


Five decorative slots:

This is great! I will definitely find this useful.

But out of curiosity; if one uses this mod to place the item in a lot, and then someone else downloads the lot with that item in it, will it stay in position if the second person doesn't have your mod? And will items placed in the slots stay in place? Or do you know?

My guess would be that the items will stay put as long as the second person does not move it, but I cannot say for sure. If it's any consolation, you're free to distribute this mod with your lots.

Thank you so much for this. I hardly ever use this because of its unshiftability. Now, I'll probably overuse it for awhile.

THANKS FOR THIS AND ALL YOUR OTHER AMAZING MODS.
Would you mind letting me know where you got the table pictured underneath the plate rack, the little cart? and maybe that mortar and pestle?

Thank you so much! I often thought this would be more useful if I could move it up and down. The fact that you also added slots makes it even more amazing. :)

I know this is a long shot, but I can't seem to get this working. Instead of the original Plate Rack(installed via the launcher as part of the Full Bayside Set from the official store website) being overwritten and me getting the changes, I end up with a second, incomplete catalogue entry, meaning it has a thumbnail and hovering over it shows a price and name, but doesn't open up the description or allow me to place the shelf. Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong?
