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.
This set came about because I wanted a fitting window for my Nook Living Room set. (Find it HERE). I needed a window that was a full tile wide and just above coffee table height, and the Maxis basegame ‘Function of Plate Glass’ window would fit that if it was modified a bit.

From there it developed into a Maxis add-on set of 8 windows and 2 doors, and this is what they look like:

More precisely there are
* 3 single windows – all a full tile wide and therefore perfect for sunrooms, in-door gardens etc. One of them is the window for the Nook Living set and must be downloaded in a separate file (For those who only want the window for the nook and not the others).
* 3 double windows – one of which is full width
* 2 special windows – there are two of each in the picture below, so you can see how they line up.
* 2 doors

All of them have diagonal versions. They match the original ‘Function of Plate Glass’ window and take their textures from it. That means they also use all the recolors you have of this window.

To complete the collection you can go and download Leesester’s counter-height version of the original window. You can find it in this thread.

To make it all easier to find I made a collection file that also includes Leesester’s window.

All windows are priced at 111 simoleons – in the catalogue just after the original which is priced at 110. Doors are priced at 146.

Polygon Counts:
Single and double windows – 148
Special twin – 296
Special stack of 4 – 592
Door, solid – 480
Door, glass – 360

Amazing work, and yet more architectural choices for builders like me Thank you! I hope someone offers Maxis matched trim for other styles. Keep it up!
