This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Late Night (and accompanying patch) introduced the ability to move pictures up and down on walls. However, many of us were frustrated to discover that this didn't work on curtains. Well, now it does!

With this default replacement mod for EA curtains, you can now use any curtain for any height window. You'll get a lot more use from basic drapes.

The download includes three files: one each for base game, Ambitions, and Late Night curtains. Download just the packages you need for the EPs you have. Even modifies curtains you've already hung... after installation, they'll be height-adjustable.

Will not modify custom or store curtains.

For those new curtains that game with Generations, see this link. Thanks Armiel!

Possible Conflicts:
This mod updates the OBJD resources for each of the curtains. It will conflict with any other mod that changes the OBJD.

Known to conflict: Curtains! Stop Snapping to that Wall!!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is awesome! Too bad there isn't one for lights... I was sadly disappointed that, like curtains, not all wall lights slide up or down. Sad face. So downloading this. :-)

Thanks so much for this - it's always bothered me that I can't mix and match my windows and curtains!
