Ever noticed how the base game door "Simple Glass Double Door" isn't actually made of glass? Or how the "Stark Front Door" appears solid but allows light to pass through it? How both doors only have different frame colours but not panel colours?
Well both doors SHOULD be made of glass but because of the way EA meshed them, it didn't work correctly.

The file I've made replaces the door meshes so that the glass texture can now work correctly.

The shadow meshes have also been replaced so that they now do not cast a shadow where the glass panels are. The LIGHT resource for the double door has also been altered to allow light to pass through the door as with the single door that already does this.
The catalogue thumbnails have also been updated to reflect the changes.

Known bug: In order for sunlight to shine through these doors and cast light on the floor from outside when Lighting is set to High or Very High, you will need to also place an EA created glass door or window in the same room. I cannot currently find the cause for this and so cannot correct it at this time. If I do find a solution then I will update at that time.
Any doors already placed in your game will pick up the changes as soon as you install this mod. You shouldn't need to sell and rebuy them.
To uninstall, just delete the mod and your doors will revert the next time you load your game.

The doors now correctly allow light to cast into rooms when placed on external walls.

The file has now been updated to include the black frame options that were recently added by EA in the June patch. This version also fixes the colour tags which I missed before.

Fixed an issue with the fourth colour of the single door flashing red at furthest zoom and enabled double door transparency at a further distance.
