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 had a couple of requests for these, this is the base game Colonial OakTowne Interior Door remeshed to an Arch. I did a double and a single version. In the pic below you can see the two arches in the foreground and the matching base game door by Maxis in the background.



I also did a remesh of the Touch of Teak Pigalle Double door down to a single door, you can find that HERE. However, I also made a 1 tile version of the arch to match the two tile Touch of Teak Pigalle Double Arch, and I am including the single arch in this upload as a bonus arch.




I have gone a bit mad on making pretty pics recently, so in case it is not clear what is in the upload see the WYSIWYG pic in the attached screen shots.

Prices and recolour options

French Arch = 180 simoleons
Colonial Double Arch = 300 simoleons
Colonial Single Arch = 230 simoleons

All arches are linked to the originals using the repository technique, and so will pick up any recolours you may have in your downloads folder






Polygon Counts:
Double Interior Colonial Arch Straight & Diagonal 176 polys
Interior Colonial Single Arch Straight & Diagonal 176 polys
1 tile Touch of Teak Pigalle French Arch Straight & Diagonal 496 polys

Simpe, all the tutorial writers, and MTS for giving me a place to learn and share my stuff

Thank you so much! I actually happened to be building today and grumbling about how none of the 2-tile arches match the 1-tile ones, so this was a perfect find!

I love these especially the one tile glass door. I normally don't download anything in build or buy mode but I can't resist.

Hmm, how wierd. I will take a look, have never seen this, and I DON'T think it did it in my game, but I will double check the wall mask.
EDIT: Ok, I checked in SimPE - there is no odd things going on in there, and I based this arch on my double door clones which I used for the Mauritania set, and they have no problems, so I cannot fix it.....anybody else with this problem? It MAY be your game, but I am not 100% certain of that.
