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.
I use TheNinthWave's Fitted Blinds One Mesh Fits in ANY window! all the time in my game and screenshots. Sometimes you just need the blind to be a little longer, so I have made 7 new longer blinds. Like the original these blinds do not work on diagonal windows, however, if you use 'moveObjects On' & 'SnapObectToGrid' it is possible to place them on a diagonal window.

Using the Repository Technique I have slaved all these to the original by TheNinthWave, so any recolours of the original will show for these.

KarenLorraine thought the Fitted Blind by TheNinthWave was a little expensive and I agree, so you will find these blinds a lot cheaper.

I have included the original MESH but changed the price to fit in with my prices, you can view the original upload by TheNinthWave HERE. You can also find some recolours by me HERE and HERE.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

The original blind (and your recolors) is one I use quite a bit. It will be even more useful with the different lengths. It was something I didn't know I needed. Thank you for all your wonderful creations!

Great blinds! the only problem though is it stops you adding stuff to the walls opposite the windows you put them on and if you try it tried to be placed inside the wall lol, but never less they look awesome.

Default Diagonal glitch
Hello,
So, I’m using those blinds and have placed it in many houses. For some reason, when I try to place it on diagonal window, they transform into the expensive maxis red curtains (the ones that are in the base game).
