"Country Windows"
GLOBAL MOD to make the new Seasons' windows line-up correctly with kitchen counters



Click Me

Those Maxis guys never learn how to make things look fine: new EP, same old mistakes........

Warning:this is a global mod who effects only the specific shapes it refer to, this is not an hack, anyway:
- this would not unknowingly included in your uploaded lots, if this happen use the Clean Installer to remove it.
- this would not copy in your windows clone with Simpe, in any case is strongly suggested to remove it or to uncheck the Downloads folder in the File Table.

Why these MODs?
As you can see in your game, the new Seasons' windows ugly overlap with counters with the backtrim.

ML_WindowCountry_GLOBAL-MOD
This mod required Seasons

If you don't have Seasons you don't need it.
The mod makes the country windows line-up correctly with all the kitchen counters that have the backtrim; so you can use the new windows with all the counters, not only with the new counters without the backtrim.
These windows are not suitable with the stoves: their little windowsill overlaps only half of the backtrim's stove.

Thanks so much, Mary Lou! I was hoping you would do this for these windows too. These work wonderfully. If you have the time and desire, I would love it if you would do one of your great window sets based on this window. It would be wonderful to have these windows center on the wall panel, and have matching windows in other sizes.

One of the first things I thought when playing Seasons was: "Oh no! The windows overlap the counters, and badly! I wish Mary Lou would fix them!"

And you did. Because you are awesome like that!

Thank you, ever so much!

Aww so great ! Yeah I saw the little thing but I didn't think you would be so quick to fix it ^^ thanks !
I support amythestfenix's comment, cause I don't like when it's in two tiles for a so small window. Why Maxis guys can't do better their job ?? lol

^^ Wow, thank you for being so quick to fix this! ^_^ I just bought Seasons yesterday, and it was the first thing I noticed when I was building a house, and I literally hit my head on my desk and murmured "CRAP." ^^ Thank you SO much for fixing this, and making all the perfectionists of the world happy. ^-^ Thank thank thank you!

I really appreciate all the tweaking you do to make counters and windows blend better. I am forever using snapobjectstogrid to adjust edges of counters, frigs, etc. that disappear into the wall on one side.

I was coming on today to request the same thing and found this. I love what you do for our game and I love the style of these windows. It would be so awesome to have some without the shutters and other sizes as well. Thank you for this mod by the way.
