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.
I made a centred version of the base game Walnut Door after I got a request to do so, and a few people have asked if I could do some more. So here they are - the base game one tile doors centred on two tiles.



This is the base game value door sporting a grungy new look courtesy of Pixelhate

I have uploaded the doors as separate files so you can get just the ones you want.

Prices and Catalog Location
In the build mode catalog with the rest of the windows and doors. The two tile is priced the same as the one tile original so they should be next to each other.

Recolour Options
As always, repository doors, so any recolours you have for the One tile Base Game doors that you may have in your downloads folder will work for these doors as well.

Wow, these are great! I wonder if possible it could be similarly coded for some single windows that would really help some of my designs.

Well, it would depend what window - I have a couple here on MTS (check my profile) and some stuff on my own site - leefish.nl (in my sig). Otherwise - try tbudgett and marylou. They did some great items.

Leesester, you are so generous. These are the items I really like- stuff that makes my houses match, or just old things used in new ways. Thank you.

Ironically, I was just wondering a few days ago if you'd done a 2-tile of the value door yet. Thank you so much for these!

These are great, thanks.

However, i was only able to download the value door. The other 4 doors would not download and timed out.

Thinking the site was just busy, I came back later and attempted to download the other 4 doors and had the same result.

Not sure what's going on with the 4 files, but may need to be looked at.

Working now, I got them. Thank you.

I just tested - all four files were fine - did you get an error or did the page just hang?

I was using firefox.


EDIT: Ok, good to hear you got them - probably site gremlins

I love this idea! I used the door immediately in my bathroom but my sims have an odd random behavior. Sometimes they cross their hands like they don't like them and refuse to go through. I've never seen anything like it. They act like something is in the way. But if I tell them a second time to go into the room to use an object they go through just fine. I actually find the behavior amusing so I don't know if it's on purpose or a quirk of the object.
It only happened a few times with two different sims after a whole night of playing the house. I have loads of hacked objects and mods so it's probably just a weird reaction.

All that rambling and I just wanted to say thanks!

Well, that is certainly odd - I did not plan this to be so, and did not see this behaviour when I was testing.

To see if it is the door rather than the room, try putting the colonial glass door in the doorway instead and see if the sims still do it. That's the door these were cloned from.

Glad you liked them, and thanks for the thanks
