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.
These windows allow to see and don't be seen because they have a mirror side and a transparent glass side:

They come in 3 parts:
a single window (straight and diagonal)
a left side frame (straight and diagonal)
a right side frame (straight and diagonal)

They are particularly useful in the construction of commercial and company offices.
The glass side, the mirror side and the frame are recolorable.
The glass side and the mirror side share the same recolors, so if you recolor the glass side, the mirror side will be recolored with the same color, and vice versa.

Note: if you place a one-way mirror window opposite to another, the first window reflects the inside of the other window, and vice versa.

The package file called DP - One-way Mirror-Window is the master file to recolor glass&mirror.
The package file called DP - One-way Mirror-Window_Lframe is the master file to recolor the frame.

The standard color for glass&mirror and for the frame is the Gray.
Then I've created 35 recolors both for glass&mirror and for the frame; you can see all the recolors in the screenshots above (the pictures have been captured on the mirror side). In the screenshots you can also see an octagonal building that has all the 36 colors of the windows.
The rar file called Frame colors (it's optional) includes the textures I've used to recolor the frame; the colors used to recolor the frame are the same I've used to recolor glass&mirror (but obviously glass&mirror and the frame have different subsets and you can recolor them separately).

These windows have been originally created by Atavera, you can find the starting creation here; I've reworked them creating the diagonal meshes of the 3 windows and adding the possibility to recolor also the mirror side.
These windows use own GUIDs that are different from the starting creation, so they don't override and/or overwrite anything.

No one, this mod needs only the Base Game (tested with the AnyGameStarter).

You are free to do what you want with these windows: you can clone the packages, recolor the windows, add them inside a lot. But for any use you do with them, you have to credit me (for this mod) and Atavera for the starting creation.

Glass: 2 Faces - 4 Vertices
