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.
