by the book

One of the things I miss in Sims4 is clutter.
Specifically: books.
When I am dressing a 'set' for promo shots,
it's the first thing I go to.
I made a few books for Sims 3
and easily, those meshes could be expanded upon.

I expanded.

The books from this S3 set
have been converted for S4
 and expanded upon with 16 new covers in two volumes.
(S4 gets the six original covers in Volume 1) 

Remember. The standing book has TWO slots for each width book.
You can expand your row as long as you want, but do it on the floor first.
Pick up the first book and place on your surface or OMSP

Then from this set
I took the Vintage Open Book
(Eight Dog Chronicles)
 and expanded that into two new sets.
The Japanese Notebook (18 styles) &
Korean Children's Periodical (24 styles)
The Scrapbook Photo Album
has also been converted, but 
also updated for S3.
Tiny texture update to give the appearance
of more pages in the book
(a bit of an oversight, though not a deal breaker, in the original)
For S4, there are 32 styles (8 colors, 4 paper colors each)
and S3 a new multiplier and the four paper color overlays.

Not the most exciting post.
I have been recovering from surgery
and for the past week I have been battling bronchitis.
No guff from you ... I took some pictures (cough cough cough)
So I did something a little different.
I merged files this time as an option.
So for individual files:
For merged files:
3.27.16 - It was brought to my attention that the stacking books
no longer work correctly in Sims 4. EA patched on March 22 and altered how
the MOO cheat works and since this update I can no longer use these books myself
in game (after using them a couple of weeks ago). For this reason, please remove
the following files from your game OR use at your own risk:

  1. baufive_s4_vol1_thickbook
  2. baufive_s4_vol1_thickbook_stackable
  3. baufive_s4_vol1_thinbook
  4. baufive_s4_vol1_thinbook_stackable
  5. baufive_s4_vol2_thickbook
  6. baufive_s4_vol2_thickbook_stackable
  7. baufive_s4_vol2_thinbook
  8. baufive_s4_vol2_thinbook_stackable
 These files have been removed from the above link as of today
which leaves only four files to download.
Sims 3 users - there has always been reports of slotted items sitting on
another slot slowing the game down. If your computer is older/slower/lower end,
please also use at your own risk. Thank you - sorry about this -
I will continue to monitor the situation and hopefully will see these return someday.
These will not be released without slots - I don't see the point.
