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.

This is great! It's always bothered me that these windows didn't have any slots. The point of a bay window is that you can put stuff on it! Thanks for fixing it! I'm glad to add this window back into rotation. I'd stopped using any of the bay windows except the Gone with the Windows that you already fixed! I particularly like putting this window in kitchens, and it will be so nice to be able to fill it with kitchen clutter now.

This looks so cool - I love your pictures for it too, makes me want a lovely little dinette like that.

I like clutter space added to this particular window. It's very plain by itself, and I always wanted to be able to put a plant or pictures on it. Thanks again c!

Thank you! The first time I saw the window, I was like, "OMG this is perfect to show off little...thingies!" It was dissapointing when it didn't hold a little flower vase I wanted on it. Thank you so much :D

Awesomeness! I actually requested this when you did the last bay window. Thank you so much from the bottom of my little Sim-loving heart! Now my Sims can finally cool their baked goods properly. . .in this window!

I love decorating. I love clutter. I loved bay windows in Sims 2 that could hold clutter. I hate EA for not giving us this option with Sims 3 bay windows as well. I love you thank you so much!
