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.

Finally I have managed to uppdate this window. Should work OK now with or without EP.
So to all users who have had problems with this window, pls. DL the uppdated file and overwrite the old one.

Hi all.

Another window in Church style. Or why not for a castle or something.
The mesh is a rework from the original "Out Of The Dark Ages window" and are 2 tiles wide - 2 stories high.

No EP pack's should be needed.

In the pack there are 5 files:
1. Moon_Ez Out Of The Dark Ages - 2 Storie Church Style
This file holds the new mesh with the stained glass window.
2. Frametemplate.bmp
-The temp for recoloring the frame.
3. Glass template
-The temp for recoloring the glass.
4. Tempshot top / Tempshot bottom
-A in game screen shot to show the placement for the colors in the Frametemplate.

Both the window frame and the glass can be recolored.

Start SimPE and choose "color options". Klick "Load Object" on the top right and browse to the folder where you extracted the files and choose "Moon_Ez Out Of The Dark Ages - 2 Storie Church Style.package". Klick "Open" and "Start" and save your new package.
In the next window "Subset Selection" you choose if you want to recolor just the glass or the frame. Or why not both.
Continue as usual.

Credit! A big thanks to Lisen801 for her wonderful Small Swedish Christian Church that I used for ceenery.

Enjoy and happy simming.

I just wanted to come back and say after using these windows that you did a phenomenal job on them. They look real and the detail you put into them is fantastic. Top quality as usual Moon!

Hey Deeme, I had the same problem. Moon_EZ has said that he is looking into the problem. I had the same trouble with some of his other objects. I'm not sure what the problem is myself, some will work for me, while others will not.

Same problem here, so I'm relieved to see it's not just me.

I'm having the same problem with Moon_Ez's glass block windows. I've downloaded most of his stuff and these are the only two objects I've had the problem with, the rest all work and look great.

As an update, and hopefully as some help to Moon_Ez who I think is an absolutely incredible designer, here is the list of things that I seem to have problems with. I noticed the Out of the Dark Ages Windows first, they show up like all these other items in my catalog but I can not place them in game, you can click on the picture but nothing happens after that. This also seems to happen for me with Octothorp Atrium Windows, the glass block set, everything in the Architectural Design Set Windows and Doors, although the other Architectural Design Set works for me. And the table in the "Stress Down" set in cast iron does not work for me but the chairs do. I've been trying to figure out what the problem may be but I haven't figured anything out yet. I would think if it was simply an expansion pack problem, these items wouldn't even show up in our original games. Wish I could be more help!

These are nice windows! I certainly hope I can get them to work - they're perfect for the 'two-story' high-ceilinged banquet hall I'm adding to my castle!

A HUGE thanks to Moon_Ez for the work he did on finding a fix for those of us who could not use these beautiful windows. I always felt that some of my buildings lacked a certain something and these windows solved that problem wonderfully. :bow:
