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.

[COLOR=Red]Works in 1.26/Pets.[/COLOR]

Grace your place with more clutter space. Another (or not) bay window with 15 slots added.



This is a default replacement. Price, poly count, presets, and location are all the same as the original.


Have fun!

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.

How are we doing on an update for 1.26? Slots mods are pretty much on the very top of my list of must-haves for the new version -- it boggles my mind when I bump into some of the slot limitations on EA furniture (thank goodness for you and Sims MX).

Actually, because of the way I made it, this object doesn't need updating. It works in 1.26/Pets already.

Oh, wicked. Given that the general word was "anything with slots is bollocksed" I didn't even try it. Aheh. Awesome to find out otherwise, then!

I guess I should dig through my downloads and actually test all my old packages, but loading times take forever...

This is so good! I always wondered why you couldn't put stuff in these windows.

Default Thanks
Thanks for updating this to Pets. I just loaded up an old house of mine I had in storage and it was a Pre-Pets house that I built. And it had the old slotted windows. When I got it loaded all the slotted items were gone. So I jumped here and check to see if there was an update.

Schweet!!! It's been updated. I really appreciate this. Now it's time to fix my windows.

Just wondering if you have any plans to do something similar to the window from Master Suite Stuff?
I've seen a lot of places seem to have removed the flowers from it but nobody has managed to add a slot in for us to decorate it ourselves.
I would give it a go myself but have only messed with moving existing slots before.

It would actually be easy enough to do Menaceman44 - you need to create an RSLT resource and add it in the VPXY. Since you would probably want to get rid of the flowers as well - I think you would need to default replace the OBJD and VPXY - probably the MLOD and MOLD to get rid of the stupid flowers. I would do it, but I don't have MSS.

Hi, I don't quite know why but for some reason this mod doesn't seem to be working. I placed the file in the same location as my other mods, which ARE working (and none of them change anything to do with windows or item slots, although one of them is the Awesomemod), but everything I've tried has come up with nothing.

At first I started the game up expecting it to have made the changes straight away, but when nothing happened I tried buying and placing a new window in case it was an issue with windows which had already been placed not taking on the new item slots - but it made no difference and the newly-bought windows didn't take objects either.

Then I tried moving the mod file to the latest expansion pack's folder, with no effect, so then I kept one copy of it in the basegame folder as well as the latest expansion, again with no luck.

Is this just a case of a mod that works for some people and not for others, or have I missed something really obvious?

Where are you installing your mods and packages?
Mine all go into Documents>Electronic Arts>The Sims 3>Mods>Packages
They don't go in individual game pack directories anymore.

That's so odd, I thought they were supposed to go in the Computer/Prog files path - that's where I've got Awesomemod and the Framework installed (they didn't work if I moved them to the Documents folder, which I tried at first due to being used to Sims 2 mod placement). Idk if I just got mixed up and it's only game-modifying files like AM that go in that path, but I just installed this slots mod in the Docs path and it's working, so I guess that's where I'll be putting all future mods from now on. Thanks for the help.

I made my friends house and she has this window with a bunch of stuff on the sill and I was so frustrated that the in-game windiw didn't have slots. Thanks you SO much!
