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.

If you are interested to 3 and 4 Tiles windows to complete this set you can found them HERE

This is a simple work I made to expand and complete the original Maxis windows "Independent Expressions Inc."

I really hate Maxis' Privacy Window.....but sometimes we need to use it. So I've made some different shapes about the privacy window for my sims.

These are coordinate to the Indipendent Expressions Inc.

All the elements have the automatic diagonal that shows up when you you put a window on a diagonal wall.
Therefore, in the archive "ML_IndependentExpressions-ExtensionSet_ALL.rar" you'll find all the files: straight and diagonal.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow-Diagonal.package
This is the privacy window that is placed high on the wall as usal.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_CenterWalls.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_CenterWalls-Diagonal.package
This is a new single privacy window that is placed high on the wall, in the middle of two tiles.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_CenterWalls-Low.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_CenterWalls-Low-Diagonal.package
This a new single privacy window that is placed low on the wall, in the middle of two tiles.





- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_Double.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_Double-Diagonal.package
This a new double privacy window, placed high on the walls.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_Double-Low.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_PrivacyWindow_Double-Low-Diagonal.package
This is a new double privacy window, placed low on the walls.





And of course we need window with standard height.
- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight-Diagonal.package
This is the single window with Standard height.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight_Double.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight_Double-Diagonal.package
This is the double window with Standard height.

- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight_CenterWalls.package
- ML_IndependentExpressions_WindowStandardHeight_CenterWalls-Diagonal.package
Thi is a new Single Window with standard height that can be place in the middle of two tiles.





Extract the packages from the rar archives and put them in the Downloads folder (use an archive program, or the Q-Xpress auto-installer)
You'll find the elements in the Build Mode catalog - Windows as usally.


RECOLORS
All these elements borrow the textures from the original "Indipendent Epressions Inc." window therefore, if you want to recolour them just create a recolour for the originale window.
Use Object Workshop and create a recolour for the Window - 2 Tile - Plate Glass, that is the master of the entire set.
Your recolor will apply to all the orginal windows and to all these new elements.
Every recolour for the original window that you may already have will be automatically available for the all the new shapes.
