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.
Six sets of shutters for Base, Nightlife, and Open For Business windows. Each one includes an open and partially closed version. While each one is base game compatible, they are sized according to the windows. The Well Wisher one does fit the cheap window in Base game.

Includes straight and diagonals, and single and double width where appropriate for window type.

Window Type
  • Well Wisher - Base
  • Double Hung - Base
  • Lafenetre - Base
  • Independent Expressions - Base
  • Open Me - NL
  • Euro - OFB



UVMaps are included, there are two, one for the open version and one for the closed. All are mapped identical.

Each one has been added to the collection file that the windows are in, but there is a separate collection file as well for all shutters.

Polygon Counts:
Polys - 306 open, 56 closed

I am doing some recolors of the Open Me Shutter. I recolored the single window closed and open and it shows up for the single window open/closed and double window open....however, the double window closed states the object is not designable meaning the recolor is not showing up for it. Any ideas what I might need to do to fix this problem? Sorry to be a bother.

Wow, thanks for responding so quickly! It's fixed now and looks great. I love these shutters. I've only recolored the Open Me so far, but I'm sure I'll be recoloring the others too.

Is it just me, or is the curve on the top of the open shutters for the wishing well window going the wrong way? Doesn't look like they would line up when closed...
