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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
As some of have noticed there are some problems with windows if you install latest patch.
I managed to fix all but diagonal windows and added new archive in download section named "FIX"
I'll do my best to fix diagonal windows too.

It's been awhile since i uploaded something, but i have good reason.
Last month i was working on this set. The main culprit is tomvanroosmalen, he asked me to make him few windows for a house he was working on, a few windows turned out to be exactly 43 different window pieces.


Set is consisted of 44 different pieces.
there are:
11 normal (single tile) windows
16 modular windows*
16 diagonal modular windows**
single 45 window for under roofs(under normal windows in download section)
all windows costs 250
windows have one recolorable channel

*modular windows are made of side and middle part, they can be used as multi-tile windows.
** since the tile of diagonal wall is bigger then straight one i had to make diagonal modular windows because normal modular windows are too short.

all files are in .package file format, i can upload files in .sims3pack if there will be need for that.

I hope my windows will find a place in your sims home.

Download files
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
FIX.rar | Description: windows fix , works only with 1.26 and above 1.31 MB 80,750 29th Oct 2010
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.

I'm also having a problem with the 45 degree roof window. It just blends into the wall and has no transparency. I did try "moveobjects on" but it didn't help.

I'm sorry you had to remove the Sims3Pack files. Wish I could have gotten them before you had to take them down, as my game doesn't cope well with package files.

Thank you very much for making this set; I particularly appreciate that you have made a modular set of windows, however I am also unable to get the 45° window to show correctly in my game. My game is fully patched and I have Ambitions, HLS and World Adventures.

Here is the window as it is when placed on a normal wall:

and here is the window when placed on a roof wall with moveobjects set to on:

I used the ALT key to try and move it forward but this was the best I could get without moving it away from the wall or deleting the wall of the roof altogether. I'd rather not delete the wall of the roof to place any window so I am posting this feedback in the hope that you can fix this particular window.

All of the other windows in the set look great.

Edited to add that my game crashed to desktop when I tried to recolour the 45° window.

Lovely set! Thanks a million!

I am having the same problem as Gelfling though. With the window not cutting the wall. My game also crashed to desktop when I tried to clone it. I haven't tried to recolour yet though.

Thanks again

I don't know what you guys are moaning about? Windows normally don't work so well with moveObjects on, you just have to fiddle around a bit for it to recognise the wall.

Hudy, that's alot of files for the windows and could potentially slow the game down. I've compressed them all into one package and it seems to work fine, I think you should provide a version like this too.

Not "moaning" just simply reporting a single issue via feedback. No amount of fiddling or fine-tuning has made a jot of difference for me unfortunately, which is a shame because it's otherwise a nice set. Rather than criticise, perhaps you could share just exactly what you did that makes it work in your game for the possible benefit of others here.
