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.
I created these windows (using AC3D) for the replica Armani store that I'm building, and since that won't be done for a while, I thought I'd share them with you all ahead of time. The first is a 1-tile square window which is good for putting above counters, and also for making nifty interior store displays. The second is a 2-tile version of the large plate glass windows that came with OFB, which I can't for the life of me figure out why Maxis didn't include in the first place. Huge thanks to IgnorantBliss for her custom window tutorial, without which these would not have been possible.

Recolor at will, and feel free to redistribute the meshes so long as you leave the credit to me in the catalog description.

Square Window
-Requires OFB
-180 polygons, 276 vertices
-comes in white, black, red, blue, and yellow

Rectangular Window

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

Cheers mate =) I just tried these in game and they look fabuloso! I just LOVE how I can have a line of the small window next to each other without annoying spaces in between if ya get me =) Great work.

For some reason, the diagonal versions of these windows look funny to me when I use them.

I absolutely love the square window! I use it all the time now. Is there any chance we'll be seeing diagonal versions of these in the future?

Hope you check your threads once in a while, this window absolutely saved my last project. I did an extensive search and all the big 2-tile windows did not go down far enough or had crossbeams or were frosted etc. EA owes you some royalty fees or something. Thank you, thank you.
