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.
This is my first (hopefully) share-worthy try at using the new glass texture technique described by WesHowe. In the game it will appear with the two textures used by the 2-tile Mission Partition that it was cloned from.

To make it look good you will have to recolor it. It has two recolorable parts, the base and the partition part.

It will appear in the Buy/Decor/Miscellaneous Decor section, it costs $5.00 and is named Glass Partition.

The object has been fixed using the BlueLotObjectFixer. Please redownload and replace the original.

I hope you enjoy it

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is a very good addition to Sims, for your first attempt this is amazing piece of work!! Well done

I've now had chance to use this excellent addition, it's just great & the uses are nearly endless!! Thanks again for making this, it's a real must for building showers etc. I just had to thank you & let you know that you've done a great job

This is great, but I could really use a single tile version of this. I hope that you will consider making one of those.

Thank you for this creation though and for all the hard work you put into building it.

I am so excited to see Orangemitten's name as creator. Can we see more exciting sets from you? I loved your creations in Sims 2.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

Thank you to all who have commented. I hope it's ok to post in the comments thread of my object?

Anyway, I will work on making a single tile glass screen and also think about a glass partition especially for bathrooms...and a glass floor tile.

Sasha, a glass partition is for decorative separation of living spaces. For example, you can place it between the dining area and the kitchen in an open plan home so that the less beautiful parts of the kitchen are somewhat obscured from the dining part. You could then place decorative plants or what have you in front of the glass to give a decorative effect.

AH! Thank you thank you so much! I'm like a glass addict and have missed all the glass floor tiles from sims 2, and this is just really fantastic. I definately have some uses for this :D
