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.

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.

These look great and will be used a LOT by me, together with your doors.

However, the 1x1 arch looks differently colored or with different lighting. It looks brighter than the others, while the other arch and the five doors (from this set and the other set) all look the same.

See attached screenshot. All doors are in their default style and facing the same way. I even copied the style from the 2x1 arch over the 1x1 arch. Still the 1x1 arch looks more bright than the rest.

I think there may be something wrong with the doors. Sims pass right through them as if they weren't there. I can still click on them and do things like "set as front door" etc. but the sims walking right through them like they're a hologram...

Did you take down the other doors that matched these? I tried the link in the other comment, but it says I don't have access. I remember another door that matched, a one tile door. Unfortunately, my hard drive died and I don't have all my old downloads.

I will love having doorways that match the front door! I'm a bit obsessive about matching items (lol). Thank you!

Speaking of the "other set", where is this "other set"?
