As you may have noticed, I love southwestern architecture, so I use the basegame Made In The Shade Tiled Awning a lot in my builds - but it has a serious flaw, the support beam at the back cuts right across, blocking any windows you place behind the awning unless they're underneath, meaning you don't get the shaded effect you're looking for. So I changed the meshes to remove that beam, giving you far more flexibility in how windows are used with the awning.

This is a very small mod that only replaces the meshes, so it'll work with all custom recolours of this object and it won't show up as custom content in-game. Just like the default, it can be found under Build / Wall Accents for §415

Polygon Counts:

LOD0: 474 polygons
LOD1: 366 polygons
LOD2: 322 polygons

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you so much. This has always bugged me. I love the awning but that damn bar just ruined any use of it.
