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.
GUILT. That is what prompted me to make this set..... I uploaded Part 1 like a million years ago, and never did the other half BECAUSE there is another set of windows very like this already in existence. The other set is NOT repository though and these are.



I already uploaded these on my own website but Fanseelamb said I should really put these on MTS as

1) The other set is already here

and I said

2) and nobody knows where my site is

She's right. I'm right.

So, onto the windows:

Catalog Location
In Build mode, doors and windows, with the rest of the windows

Recolours
Repository windows so they will pick up any recolours of these windows that you may already have in your downloads folder. They have two subsets like the original.

Thanks - these are going to be very useful! The original set are really nice windows but their size has always put such a limit on their useability.

Lies! I found your site a few days ago (it's lovely, btw) and since I'm the last to know anything I'm sure others know about it too.

I love these windows and the door looks fantastic, thanks for sharing your hard work here too.

THANK YOU! I admit, I've been hoping that you would make this set ever since you released your first social set (which, by the way, is the set of windows I use the most in my game). These are lovely, thank you for sharing them.

Those windows are really nice. They are perfect for my current building style: historic downtown look on the outside and modern style on the inside of the buildings. Thank you very much for this set of windows.

I want to recolor these! I really do! However, I probably have 1G of meshes already reserved for recoloring, so I doubt I'll get to my intended project any time soon. By the way, I like your dramatic paragraph introducing your download.

About not having enough traffic on your site, at least I've visited there more than once, and want to visit more in the future!

Hi there, before you get started there are some nice recolours already for these windows -

maxis-match woods at MTS
and Sims2Artists (same set)
and painted wood at S2A

Thank you, but I think I misspoke when I used the word "recolor." I actually intended to make a grungy retexture with filthy and broken glass panes. I'm sorry for creating confusion and wasting a small amount of your time.

oh, I see - glass recolours - that would be cool, but difficult...these are cloned from the later Maxis EPs where windows came with an inner and outer subset, which means the glass is not recolourable (it does not have a TXTR, just a TXMT). Which is a shame, as these would look great with a grungy look.

Hi there!

First of all, I really enjoy all your creations, especially the window and door expansion sets. So thank you!

I noticed that there seems to be an incompability between this set and part 1. When I have both in my game, the big 1 tile Classical Curves window mesh seems to overwrite its Perfect Pediment counterpart - or the other way around, depending on the load order. I get both in my game, with different names and descriptions, but with the same mesh. When I took out one, the other was fine (though I had to update the thumbnails). I thought perhaps the GUIDs were the same, but I checked and that doesn't seem to be the case either, and I don't know much about creating objects so I don't know what else it might be.

I thought I'd let you know, since no one else seems to have commented on it.

Thank you for reporting - I will upload a fixed version. Sorry for any trouble. I think that with that one I didn't clone my template properly. I will fix it ASAP, thanks again for letting me know.

Edit to Add: New file uploaded, single fix file attached

Hi Lee Im not sure if you are aware but when the Cute Classical curves 2 tiles is placed on a diagonal it changes to be The petite perfect pediment on two tiles. Its fine on the straight though all cutesy and curvy like! And the 'real' petite perfect pediment (try saying that fast 20 times!) is fine on the diagonal so no complaints there! Though Im not complaining at all since everything you do is wonderful, just wondering if you were aware of it happening!

Thank you for providing the smaller windows. Sometimes, the larger ones just won't work in a lot build!
