Hello Everyone!

Stained Glass Windows - Religious Theme - Base Game Compatible
By Request


This is a set of 6 stained glass windows, using 2 EA Base Game meshes. The idea was presented to me by an MTS member who shall remain anonymous, who is also a Capuchin priest. They are building their church in the game, and wanted some authentic stained glass windows. So, I thought I'd share them with everyone

Please be aware that they are not all from the same religion, and this is not meant to offend anyone in any way. These were made without bias.


The arched window's mesh has been altered slightly to remove the vertical piece of wood in the middle of the frame. This, however, has not changed the polygon counts of the original mesh:
LOD0 > 344
LOD1 > 248
LOD2 > 68



I have made 4 colours of frames, each in the original wood frames and also a stone version, for each window for a total of 48 windows. The frames are identical for each arched window and each round window, so mixing and matching is easy! I also reduced the opacity to 98% so that they are only slightly transparent, as befits stained glass.


They are found in Build Mode/Windows as follows:

Sienne Duomo Cathedrale Round Window ยง265
St. Sulpice Round Window ยง265
Jesus On The Cross ยง290
Mes Enfants ยง290
St. Catherine ยง290
Hagia Sophia ยง290

These stained glass windows are found in real life all over the world. For this set, these are the locations and the resource links:

St. Sulpice Round Window by the bloggers on Travel to Eat Paris, France
Jesus On The Cross on WikiCommons Paris, France
Mes Enfants - original source unknown Location Unknown
St. Catherine Medallion on WikiCommons Paris, France
Hagia Sophia on WikiCommons Istanbul, Turkey



Please note: I discovered while taking the screenshots that when you make windows smaller using the '[' button, it leaves a hole in the wall the size of the original window. This is an EA thing, and not caused by me. You can make the arched windows larger using the ']' button with no trouble, but not the round windows. For some reason, they end up with a cutout in the wall no matter what you do!



Please also note: The glass in the back of the round windows is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise, for some reason. This, I was not able to correct, I'm so sorry! If you are looking to take pictures using these windows indoors, I suggest swapping them so the front of the window, normally on the exterior, is facing in.
