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've decluttered a collection of bookshelves/displays from Discover University and added a number of slots to place your own clutter.

This is not a replacer, it will add new objects

Shelves altered:
1 - The Colonial Bookworm - §600 - (slots: 72 small, 24 medium)
2 - The Book Paladin - §215 - (slots: 24 small, 3 medium, 1 large)
3 - Oh-So-Fine China Hutch - §350 - (slots: 54 small, 18 medium, 6 large)
4 - Objet Trouv? Bookcase - §245 - (slots: 48 small, 15 medium, 9 large)
5 - Cube To The Cube Bookshelf Solution - §350 - (76 small, 12 medium, 12 large)



They can all appropriately be found in: Surfaces > Displays





Polygon Counts:
1 - High: 752 (shadow: 734) Med: 442 (shadow: 424)
2 - High: 198 (shadow: 180)
3 - High: 984 (shadow: 1502) Med: 668 (shadow: 1120)
4 - High: 474 (shadow: 443) Med: 182 (shadow: 156)
5 - High: 294 (shadow: 204) Med: 126 (shadow: 108)

Thanks! There never seems to be enough ways to display the cool stuff that our sims collect in their lives - especially if said sim is a collector of things!

Just to check, do any of the items in this come with books already inside? As I'm trying to find a bookcase that doesn't have any books in it. Basically, I have two bookcases in the house I have built and I have purchased all the books I wanted so I only have the books I want. But now my family has got a kid, I wanted the kid to have a bookcase in their room but when I bought the children's bookcase, it obviously added some random books the my collection (which I didn't want). So then I started thinking how it's a shame you can't buy empty bookcases so I went on a live chat to EA and they said there are mods for empty bookcases, and here I am.

I didn't delete any books inside them. I accidentally left them as functioning bookshelves, the idea was to keep them as a shelf, but I want to keep the bookshelf part.
I thought that bookshelves always added a selection of books when you placed them on a lot, I don't know of any mdos that add bookshelves with 0 books inside, I definitely didn't set mine to do that.
These are only empty, as in I have removed all of the sections of mesh that were to do with the clutter items that were on the shelves
