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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Finally! The second part of Pedimentary, My Dear! Door Collection.

Sorry it took me so long to upload this second part.

__________________


This is a collection of pedimented entry doors for your Simmy manses, estates, manors and halls. Each door features a unique pediment style and brightly polished brass hardware.




__________________


The dimensions of these doors have been supersized. The pygmy-sized 1-story doors in this game have always irked me. IMO, these doors will give your stately homes a more authentic look.
Seriously, what good is a mansion with a puny door?

Because of the big sizes, some pilasters/columns will spill into neighboring squares. This *IS* inentional. You'll have no issues placing windows in the overlapped wall spaces, but certain wide windows might intersect the door meshes.

It's up to you to choose your windows and spacing wisely.

Also, these doors stand well above one wall in height, so the pediments will not so much *peek* over the top of your walls as glare angrily over them.

Terms and Conditions:
You may recolor this set, but you canNOT clone it, hack it or alter the package files in any way!
You may also include it in houses and lots, but NOT if you are uploading to the exchange or any paysite (exception is TSR).

If you recolor this, don't host these mesh files anywhere else. Please link back so that downloaders can get the actual meshes here.
Please give full credit and a link back if recoloring or adding to a lot.
Thanks.
(pedimenttemplates1.zip contains the recolor templates for the entire collection.)


Polygon Counts:
Bonnet Pediment - 2379

Broken Bonnet Pediment - 2868

French Bonnet Pediment - 2954

Default Matching windows, if you will
These doors are absolutely divine, but are practically useless unless they have matching windows. You simply must make some, and if possible, maybe even some matching garage doors!

For any that are curious - these doors look FABULOUS in-game - absolutely perfect. They look great on the brownstones in my urban lots. Now if I only had some pediment windows....

Stunning. I use these doors or your Georgian doors in almost every residential lot that I build nowadays. These doors would be fantastic a just as the doors even for smaller homes. I am hoping your hiatus from school ends soon so you can get back to creating again!
