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.
What can I say? I LOVE books; and I want my Sims to love them as well. Here's another set of book clutter, this time taken from the surfer bookcase featured in the Teen Style Stuff Pack. They are Base Game compatible and should work in any Sims 2 game configuration you have.

The booksets are weighted as deco objects (11, for those who know), so they should fit into any slot on any object. Each set has 5 new recolors, which are all repositoried in the Bookset 1A package. All other booksets are slaved to the Bookset 1A, so it MUST in the Downloads folder in order for the textures to work and be visible in the game.

Enjoy decorating, and Happy Reading!
