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.
Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding - Medieval Centred Leadlight Door
Made by Leesester for The Merrye Makers

Greetings, good gentles/ladies. We are The Merrye Makers - a group of eleven (now twelve) creators spanning all disciplines (clothing, lots, objects, etc.) offering for thy downloading pleasure a collection of medieval things most beauteous from Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding -- otherwise known as "Simdom Pudding". Verily, Leesester, we welcome thee into The Merrye Makers.

In Ye Olde Kingdom of Pudding lived careful crafters of glass. It was hot, hard, laborious work – gratifying for those who were workaholics. First, dried beechwood logs were burnt and the ashes carefully collected taking care not to mix any spawned rocks or metals with them. After this, three furnaces were built of stones and clay and large fires lit on both sides of the biggest furnace. This was a perfect task for pyromaniacs. Two parts of ashes and a third part of sand were well mixed, then lifted up with a long-handled iron ladle and put into the furnace to be fritted. Once hot, frequent stirring with the same iron ladle prevented the mixture from melting and agglomerating. Simdom Pudding craftsmen continued doing this for a night and a day while their energy bars became redder than the clay of the furnaces. Meanwhile, handy workers ground and kneaded white pottery clay to make pots which were placed in the red-hot furnace. The fritted mixture of ashes and sand was picked up with the ladle and all pots filled with it in the evening. Dry wood was added to the furnaces all through the night, so that the glass, formed by the fusion of the ashes and sand, was fully melted. Those who were artistic poured and cut the glass as needed, positioning bits over designs they created on a board.

I have been working with the Merrye Makers for quite a while and was impressed by their commitment to a plan of a big set of Medieval items for simmers to use, so I asked to join. Here is my first offering, a "Maxis Match" door that is made to go with the Base Game Sir Cunningham window (which is really more Tudorish than medieval, but yea...) The door has an extra preset where the door handle is a rougher brown metal and still has the original preset with the shiny handle. This means that the door can also be used by none-medieval style players. While I was there I repositioned the Mission arch to also be centred on two tiles.

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.

The black lines on the glass seem a little hyperrealistic, which is confusing on many levels since it's in a video game designed to look realistic and somehow seems like it doesn't fit. Maybe it's the contrast! In any case, it's a match, so...

Otherwise cool, though; verily, a download thou hast.

Lee, I just wanted to let you know that the door (not the arch, just door) somehow corrupts that wall mask for the base game Lucky Door. Once removed, the mask is fine so I'll just be keeping the arch and your other Maxis match items in game.
