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.

These are awesome! They even have matching doors and arches, and not just single doors, but double doors! *pleasure overload*

Do the windows work on diagonal walls?

Does anyone out there have the recolors of these? My computer was stolen last year along with my backup drive. I have looked and looked everywhere all morning and no luck at all.

If you have the window it is repository linked too and have recolors of that it is all you need.

Thank you for this download by the way. It is helpful.

That site no longer exists and the contents, including the recolors for this set, are now at The Sims Graveyard, here:

I noticed that large 4-tile 2-story window has a price of $0 - an oversight?
Please fix?
#74 Old 18th Nov 2021 at 6:45 PM
Regarding that mis-priced window in my previous post, a nice person ("hypersaline") over at the Garden of Shadows website has fixed it. The relevant thread is here. That thread includes a download link for the single window file that they edited, or players can download a new 7-zip file for the entire window set here.

It looks like the creator of this set ("tbudgett") is no longer active, but if they ever return, they can update their original files.
