"Free, No Obligation!" Window Set
Updated: 16th Mar 2017 at 1:52 PM
If you were alive and paying attention in the UK about 15 years ago, that wall of confusing hyperbole will be all too familiar! While I really don't miss the SafeStyle ads, it's always struck me as odd that EA never made any regular, boring, UPVC windows for sims. And now that I'm building tonnes of suburban houses, I really can't keep going without them. So here they are!
This set consists of six matching windows, plus counterheight and centred versions of each, ranging in size from one tile up to four tiles wide. Something for every room! You can click the thumbnails in the table below to zoom in on the images.
The white texture shown in the images above is the default texture; also included are four recolours, pictured above, in light and dark brown, with or without wood effect.
The entire set is slaved to the regular height 2 tile window. If you want to recolour this set, recolour the regular height 2 tile window. If you delete the mesh for the regular height 2 tile window, the set will stop working.
I've UV mapped the set so it's extremely easy to recolour. If you get stuck, I suggest downloading the grouped MS3D mesh from the Files tab and taking a look at the mapping yourself.
zookini for the 4 tile window I cloned, and a variety of people including IgnorantBliss, Numenor and cmomoney for their techniques and tutorials.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.
