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.
I really-really wanted a glassy door for kitchens, patios, balconies and such. I thought EA's "Mags' Door" would be great if it lost the stencil. But it is solid and has nothing to do with glass and my attempts to replace the middle part failed. So I did it the hard way. I cloned another door, that had glass, and replaced the whole mesh instead. This meant that a lot of new problems sprung up, like with the normals and messing up the boneassignments, I'm such an amateur at this... I placed wooden parts in the middle, and finally managed to make it work okay, I hope it will work for you.
Because it is cloned from a metal door, the defaults you will find with it will be metal, so you have to apply a wooden texture to it yourself. Choose horizontal textures, they look better for this door (I had to rotate the texturemap to fit the clone's map.)
Known issues: There are some odd shadowed parts that are visible in sunlight. It's because of the normals, I tried fixing them, this is the best I could do.
This door can be found in the catalog right next to "Mags' Door", it costs 270§.
Let me know if you have any problems with it.

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.

Don't you wish EA would make more of these kinds of "universal" items instead of the stained glass that isn't all that useful?
