Two lower-height bookshelves that match the Maxis “Towering Intellect” bookcase, specifically my mesh edit for it (which makes it less clunky). They have slots for deco items on top and are very useful as sideboards or to put underneath windows.
Some recolours for these (and also the Towering Intellect) are available here.
These are referencing all textures from the existing Maxis bookcase, so they’re guaranteed to match and are also very lightweight. Any texture overrides you have for the original will also work for these. The books are in a different order in each one, so that they don’t look overly repetitive when used in combination ‒ see the “combo” screenshots for that. The backside looks reasonably nice as well (that is remapped as well, not stretched/squeezed) so they work nicely as room dividers too.
Tuning is the generic Maxis bookcase tuning (i.e. like the original item), deco points are a bit less than that since these are quite a lot cheaper. Found in Bookcases for 480§ (Subordinate Intellect ‒ the one-story shelf) / 800§ (Moderate Intellect), three colour options each.
Moderate Intellect ‒ High/Mid Poly: 780V/422F
Moderate Intellect ‒ Sun Shadow: 148V/88F
Subordinate Intellect ‒ High/Mid Poly: 426V/244F
Subordinate Intellect ‒ Sun Shadow: 126V/76F
