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.
UPDATE: March 14, 2007
Some people have reported the window flashing purple in their game!
HystericalParoxysm may have led me in the right direction by saying that it could be a graphical error which appear to mostly effect Geforce 7000-series cards!
Anyway I decided to add a version of the window without the glass part, so hopefully this should fix it for those who experience this problem, look for version 1.1 then!

Too many criminal sims in your neighborhoods?
Or are you just in need of objects to create a prison or a cage!
Common for all objects in this set is that the bars are kept in matching shiny metal colors!
This set contains the following objects:

Prisonbar fence(

Straight (Faces=174,Vertices=234)
Post (Faces=12,Vertices=24)
Diagonal (Faces=222,Vertices=286)

The fence will only create posts at the ends of a dragged fence!

Prisonbar Gate(


The gate has 2 recolorable subsets, the door itself & the top-bars!
Note: Gates placed indoor reacts much stronger to light than normal objects for some unknown reason!

Prisonbar ceiling(


The ceiling bars can be placed freely above all sort of objects without interfering!

Prisonbar Window( or


The window has 2 recolorable subsets, the frame & the bars!
IMPORTANT: Both versions of the window have the same guids, so use only one of them! has an invisible glass-part which may cause a flashing purple on the it when used with certain graphics cards! has no invisible glass-part, I removed it in the hope it will fix the flashing purple problem!

Enjoy this prison set!
I'll probably create some additional objects to this set in the future!

You may:
Create recolors & upload them, but remember to link to this mesh!
Use it in a house & upload your house to any site as long this object is a part of your lot!

They're very realistic looking and strong! Have you considered making a version of the door that would work with my controllable prison hack?

I'll consider that Inge, but if you're up to it, you have my permission to clone the prison gate and make it controllable with your prison hack

I'm sorry that I waited a while before replying the both of you, I had to test the window on other computers than my own!
I also asked a few people to test the window on their computer, it worked on their computers including my wifes & daughters computer - no purple glass color which shouldn't be there since the glass was made completely transparent!
I'm not saying that your game is to blame, but I'm a bit confused since I can't produce the same error
I'll try asking some experts if they know how this happens for some of you

I reinstalled the objects and they still didn't work, but i think that the problem is they are designed for OFB and not seasons

To sims1234, Casper1st, SHOPxADDICTED & others who experience flashing purple on the prison window!

I've added a new version of the window( in the top of this thread which doesn't contain a glass part, so hopefully it will solve your problems!

Why this happens I don't really know, HystericalParoxysm told me that certain graphics cards might be the cause!
She tested the window for me, but it didn't produce any flashing purple in her game!
Anyways, please report back if the new version of the window solved your problem - I really like to know if it did
