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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a 2-tile window which may become part of a whole set.
I have included all the recolours in the straight mesh file.


Polys:830


Fell free to recolour it and use it for the houses you upload on this site or any other free site. I have included the colour template for the frame in the rar file.

Enjoy!

Update:
- I tweaked the mesh a bit as there was a small gap between the North and South sides of the window;
- I added a second recolourable subset for the glass;


If you like this window, check the rest of this set here:The Eclectic Expressions Set

UPDATE: added a 1-tile window
replaced the files for the 2-tile window as they needed further editing. Please redownload and accept my apologies. When prompted to replace the files, say YES

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Great windows, but they dont show up in the base game! Are they created with any EP's on your system?

Could it be ,when you update your window that you have fixed it for none ,not for window. In The Sims2 Categorizer i have seen this and after i correct it , i finnaly found the the window in my Dl.

Correct i find only the diagonal mesh



Macarossi had found the Problem it was an Guidkonflikt,with an older Door from him.

Ths looks so great! Thanks for sharing :-)
But unfortunately I can't have it in my game, when I try to unzip it, it says "broken head" :-( I already tried it again after emptying my cache but it was no use ...

Does NOT show up in the game!
Nice windows ... But, as many others have already Stated, they "DO NOT" show up in the game or in the catalog ... I have All EP's except for FFun ..

I'm going to delete both the door and window file since there is no response as to when it will be working properly ..

It's so great... but it doesn't show in the game... can't you change the guild (if that's the problem) ? I so wanted to have this...
