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 is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The Maxis Arched window, that came with Bon Voyage, is one of my favorite's. Trouble is, you can't do much with 1 little window. So, I made a complete set. All objects are linked to Maxis Arched Window (Hotel Window), so you'll need to use it to recolor.

If you like my creation or effort, please hit the THANKS button. It only takes a few seconds

Enjoy!!!

WOW! Thanks for making these. I love big windows like that, some of the newer homes being built around my real home have windows like these and I gape at them whenever I walk by. I think I'm going to have to start building. Are these allowed to be included in lots however?

I love this set, it's beautiful. Will they work without bon voyage? I don't have it installed at the moment and wanted to see if I needed to install it before putting your set in my game.

katreina - The windows get their texture from the BV Hotel Window so they require it to display properly.
