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.
UPDATE UPDATE



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.


ABOUT THE SET:

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.
Enyoj!!

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

Sims 3
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 78,623 28th Oct 2010
Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

thanks for the windows, i would like them in sims3pack files if they are available, package files slow down the game.

Sorry if I'm being dumb, but where is the 45° angle window? I counted 44 windows in your screen shots, including the 45° angle one.

And doing the math in your post totals 44 windows:
11 normal (single tile) windows
16 modular windows
16 diagonal modular windows
1 single 45° angle window for under roofs
____
44 windows

But you say there are 43 windows.

I downloaded both the package files and the Sims3Packs - installed each separately and counted only 43 of your windows in the build section each time, none of them the 45° angle one.

I'm not trying to be a pain, these are all nice, but that is the one I most wanted.

PS: In the Sims3packs the Counter Height Middle Part is $100 while the rest are $250 I believe in the package files they were all $250.

There is no limit to what you can accomplish when you're supposed to be doing something else.

I really like them.

Any chance for real two-tile windows? I know you can put together 2 modular tiles, but I get minor seams and of couse it's more difficult to build.

And I would love those one-tile windows centered on two tiles, as well as matching doors.

Anyway, this is probably one of the best mods for sims 3 so far.

Btw: I installed all package files and I can't find the triangular roof pieces. Are you sure you included them? There is no package file with a matching filename as far as I can see.

About doors, i'm already working on them i have some problems but i hope i will fix that.
About windows, i will see if i'll make two tiles, if i make them i will upload them with doors.
