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.
"Independent Expressions Inc." - Expansion Set - DOORS and ARCH
Compatible with any EP and the BASE GAME


Get all the items to complete the whole set.
"Independent Expressions" - Expansion Set - PART I
"Independent Expressions" - Expansion Set - PART II
"Independent Expressions" - Expansion Set - PART III

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 06 Dec. 07 - Update the collection files
Added to both the collections, residential and community, the new "3tiles shapes" that are placed in the middle of 4 tiles.
The update file is IndependentExpressionsCollections.rar

For more details see the "Independent Expressions" - Expansion Set - PART II
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I have promised here are for you the doors and, in addition, the arch to match with the windows

Hope you like them.

Even if I have tested all the items in different game configuration, I'd like to know if someone get problems with the lights of the single doors that I have manually added to them......... any report will be appreciate.
  • Single and Double Arch.
    ML_IndependentExpression_ARCH.rar

  • Single and Double Door with Glass.
    ML_IndependentExpression_DOORS-GLASS.rar

  • Single and Double Door with Glass and chequered frame.
    ML_IndependentExpression_DOORS-GLASS-FRAME.rar

  • Single and Double Wooden Door.
    ML_IndependentExpression_DOORS-WOOD.rar

In the archive ML_IndependentExpression_DoorsAndArch_ALL.rar you'll find ALL the doors and arch.

In the archive IndependentExpressionsCollections.rar you'll find booth the file collections: residential and community with ALL my items (doors, arch and windows) plus the 2 original Maxis' windows.( Put them in the Collections folder "MyDocuments/EA Games/The Sims 2/Collections")

In-game usage
Extract the packages from the rar archives and put them in the Downloads folder (except for the collection files)

You'll find the items in the Build Mode catalog - Doors/Arch, as usually.

All the items have the automatic diagonal that shows up when you put a door/arch on a diagonal wall.

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