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.

The "Latch-n-Lock" Window and Door set

Here is a little variety for your window and door collection for "The Sims2".
The set includes:
Latch-n-Lock Single Exterior Door
Latch-n-Lock Single Shutter Window
Latch-n-Lock Small Single Shutter Window
Latch-n-Lock Single Narrow Window (left)
Latch-n-Lock Single Narrow Window (right)
Latch-n-Lock FullSet Recolor
Latch-n-Lock Exterior Door V2
Latch-n-Lock Double Picture Window
Note: You must at least have the Exterior Door in your downloads folder for the rest of the set to work.
You may recolor and distribute re-colors at will. Re-colors are done through the "Single Exterior Door" as it is the "Repository" for the set. Re-color the Exterior Door and you have recolored the set. You can also add etching's to the glass as it is re-colorable as well.
Each rar file contains 2 packages, a "straight" version and "diagonal". The facet and vertice counts are very low.
You do not need the E.P. to use this set.
:smash: Builders: "You can include them in your lots for upload".

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Thank you it's a very nice set. But as a builder I have to ask (as I see you have your conditions for object creators - recolourers spelled out but not for builders) can I use these in lots that I post?

These are nice, they look great on the house too, may we have that also? And yes, we are so greedy, but it's only because we love your work.

I made some popular recolors for this wonderful set here
#12 Old 23rd Jul 2005 at 4:51 PM
I love set, it has an antique look to it. I will use these beauties on my farm house, would it be ok to request a regular door with the latch and lock hardware on it? thx

They are so "homey" looking! I just love them. I am probably jumping the gun here, since I havent loaded them into SimPE yet. But I am wondering if the shutters are recolorable seperate from the windows? Weather they are or aren't doesn't matter really...the are fab!
Thanks (again over and over) for sharing your creativity, for the ease in recoloring, and for your ability to share.

When you say "regular door" do you mean an interior door or exterior door? Would this door you vision have the hinges that are on the shutters on the doors?

Ailias: beautiful re-colors as usual... :D

Karrsareus: I am sorry, the uv mapping does not allow for seperately recoloring the shutters as all the individual pieces are laid out by wood grain.

About the house: The house is yet another "dummy" house that I threw together to display the work. It is not anything I would consider uploading due to the fact there are any interior walls or other interior building...

Reading is the key to all knowledge, math is the key to everything.

A wooden exterior door would be perfect to go with the windows but an interior door could start up a whole new collection eh? *wink*

These are great. I love the hardware on them, gives a much needed country look. Perfect for cabins and country homes. Since I build more than play, I really love these. Thank your for all your wonderful creations.
