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 started these windows a long time ago, then I saw that fway was making them so I abandoned them a couple of windows in. Then, sadly, fway had a total harddrive failure before he had the chance to upload. So I started again - but RL and train stations got in the way, and so several months later, here it is, the Socialite Expansion Set, Part 1.



The set is quite small as there are two different socialite windows - the Perfect Pediment and the Classical Curves. This set is the Perfect Pediment and consists of four windows and two doors. The pic above shows a 1 tile version of the Maxis window; as you can see, I made it so it tiles.



I took the big window and shrank it down to a petite version of itself, and made a 1 tile and 2 tile version of it - (see picture with all 4 windows) and made a privacy window as well.

But what are windows without doors? I had a request to make a one tile version of the Socialite double doors, and while making it thought it would be cool if I could get a surround on it to match the windows. I managed it, just, and - see pic - it tiles and so looks very grand.



Of course not everyone likes grand so I am also uploading the original requested door by Phaenoh. The stone surround door looks like this on the inside.



And finally - yes, these are custom windows, so I took an interior shot for you to see that the small windows sit nicely above a counter. See screenshots at end of post.

LATE EDIT: I forgot to mention, these are repository windows and doors and so will pick up any recolours of the original Maxis items that you may have in your downloads folder. In the related tab there is a link to Guardgians white recolours of the doors used in this set.




Polygon Counts:
POLY COUNTS APPLY TO DIAGONAL AND STRAIGHT

Equally Eloquent Doorway = 1324 polys and 350 simoleons
Perfect Pediment Door = 1666 polys and 350 simoleons
Petite Perfect Pediment 1 tile and 2 tile = 1066 polys and 170 simoleons
Perfect Pediment Window 1 tile = 1082 polys and 293 simoleons
Private Perfect Pediment Window = 566 polys and 85 simoleons

Additional Credits:
Maxis, for providing the original mesh and textures, SIMPE, Phaenoh for asking for the door, all the tutorial writers on MTS2, fway for being a sport and helping me when my UV map got screwed up, and MTS2 for giving me a place to share my stuff.

I love the flavors of Neo-Classical architecture commonly forged into Pediment structures which also acts as an element to Classical architecture; and even better I love to see them in real life such as the building found on the large thoroughfare of 23rd Street in NYC commonly known as the Flat-Iron Building. But your display of an essential piece to the puzzle decking a building of high society has prevailed in my humble opinion.

Sorry to hear of the hard drive dilemma but the expansion pack is here now, and you know what they say, its almost always better the second time around, and optimistically, in the midst of it all we now have an apartment building made up of diverse atmospheres, a revamped memorial train station, and now this marvelous piece of art. Looking forward to the latter. +1Thanks!

Hi Simnuts - I really need to get off site more - those are gorgeous - and that two tile is a stunner. I also like the ones with the tops chopped off, what is your policy for upload? I have the very lot for those windows.....re part 2 - well, not much left - I will not bother with a small version as you have made it - I guess your windows are also repositoried to the AL window?
