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.
A few years back Leefish mirrored all the base game desks. At the moment, with the help of mustluvcatz (I stuffed up the slots on the 'The Rollin' Secretary' from Seasons and mustluvcatz is fixing them), I am mirroring all the EP and SP desks. Keep an eye out they will be coming soon.

In the middle of doing that A.D.D kicked in and I decided to play around with the Teen Style 'Fine Finish Desk' in Milkshape, the end result was 2 shorter, doll and teddy bear free desks with a couple of extra slots also the ground shadow fixed. Any recolours you have of the 'Fine Finish Desk' should work on both these desks, however, you will need the 'Short Fine Finish Desk' in your game for the shadows to work correctly on the 'Short Fine Finish Desk - Mirror'.

These are not base game compatible, Teen Style is required!

Cloned From:
The 'Short Fine Finish Desk' was cloned from and slaved to the 'Fine Finish Desk'.
The 'Short Fine Finish Desk - Mirrored' was cloned from Leefish's Mirrored Desk Template and slaved to both the 'Short Fine Finish Desk' and the 'Fine Finished Desk'.

Subsets: 1.

Found: Buy Mode > Surfaces > Desks. Price: ยง275.

Custom Content used in my screenshots: iSim Tablet by mustluvcatz, Hair and Clothing recolours not available, sorry.

Files have been compressed and checked in game.

Polygon Counts:
Both desks are the same - 1159

A great big hug and thanks to Leefish for her Mirrored Desk template which I have had been hoarding since 2011.
