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.
A gift for ekrubynaffit.

ekrubynaffit mentioned in a WCIF that she was looking for a longer Midnight Ride Window, as she has unknowingly helped me out many times with her site bestbuilditems4sims2, I thought I would give it a go and see if I could do something for her.

Then I got thinking and started messing around and made a matching add on bit for a door. No cheats are needed to place the door deco on a door.

Finally as everything was slaved to the "Midnight Ride" Window by Cross-Reference I recoloured the Walnut Door and OakTowne Simple Interior Door to match the original window colours.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Longer Midnight Ride Window: Straight and Diagonal
Cloned From: "Midnight Ride" Window by Cross-Reference.
Subsets: 2 Glass and Frame - Slaved to the "Midnight Ride" Window by Cross-Reference.
Found: Build Mode > Doors & Windows > Single Story Windows. Price: 155.

Midnight Ride Door Decoration:
Cloned From: "Civil Idol" by Adora Wall Arts.
Subsets: 1 - Slaved to the "Midnight Ride" Window by Cross-Reference.
Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Miscellaneous. Price: 5.
