So, Cmo made a great retro-style bookcase for TS3, and he was kind enough to give me permission to convert it for TS2. (Thank you, Cmo! Big Grin) So here is a blast from the past for you and your Sims: The Goin' Retro Bookcase!

[Image: thumb640x480]

It has 15 slots and comes with four recolours for the wood and three for the handles.

There are two versions of this bookcase, one for the basegame (BG) and one for Free Time (FT).
  • If you don't have Free Time or Apartment Life, get the BG version.
  • If you do have FT or AL, get the FT version.
You'll find it under Hobbies -> Knowledge and it costs 500 Simoleons.

Thanks to:
Cmo, UV Mapper Pro, SimPE and Photoshop 7.

With credit and a link, please DO:

- make recolours of my meshes and redistribute the meshes together with your recolours

- include my Bodyshop items with your Sims and my objects with your lots

- use my creations in screenshots, movies or stories; credit is appreciated, but in no way required


But please DON'T:

- take my work and claim it as your own

- upload my work as-is on any website or forum

- use my textures as a base for your recolours

- upload my work on pay/donation sites or to The Sims Resource - yes, that's even though TSR are supposed to be "nice" these days.

- alter or convert my meshes without permission


Thank you for downloading, and Happy Simming!

Nix! I'd been really yearning for this after I saw CMO's s3 specimen. This is so very perfect for my semi-tasteless-retro houses.

(why semi-tasteless? because I ask myself would anybody realistically have thought that that wallpaper is a good idea/ really hot/ whatever. Basically, I don't do horrible houses for the sake of horridness).

None of that might make sense, but I really needed something like that, and it gets me in the mood to recreate that formica/plywood/fablon world. Although, my workplace is still all that -- think of Life on Mars.

Secondly, Nix! Thank you for the radio link, I Heart old tech.

I would love to see even more retro themed items for the Sims 2, maybe that could be a challenge for you creators out there. Not me, I can't create anything other than recolours lol Big Grin

I bet you could Xander - once you have tried a bit with a meshing program (Blender is ok) and have realised that what is mapped STAYS mapped - then you can make so many objects using the repository technique and mesh edits.

Sorry, that is a members only option
