Pinegultcher Windows and Doors

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 a window, door and garage door set made to match the Maxis Pinegultcher Fence and my Pinegultcher Stairs . The set consists of 3 types of 2 story windows, 26 different types of windows with most giving you a choice of open or closed, 1 garage door, 1 single tile arch, 1 double tile arch, 4 single tile doors, 3 double tile doors, and 5 multi-tile windows.

To use the multi-tile windows are is as easy as 1,2,3 : 1) Place a multi-tile right or left window where you want the window to start 2) Then place as many multi-tile center windows, as needed, to make the window the desired width 3) Then end by placing another multi-tile right or left window. The appearance will be that of one continuous widow.

You can also chose different interior and exterior colors, such as a white interior and a dark wood exterior.

Diagonals are included for all except the 2 story windows and the garage door.

To recolor use the tb-PG_1Tile_Tall_Closed-MASTER window.

Only the Garage Door needs NL. All the other windows and doors should be BaseGame compatible. (If not please let me know)

Hurray for set completion! Why did EA taunt and tease us with incomplete sets and windows that didn't match a damn thing? Your set is so comprehensive, and has diagonals. I could hug you! In a totally platonic, non-internet-creep way, of course.

This is wonderful! I don't think I've built a house yet that didn't have your stuff all over it - you do a terrific job, especially filling in where EAxis should have. Thank you SOOOO much

...I knew I was procrastinating on building my woodsy cabin. Heh, heh, he
I gotta finish the house I'm working on right now, and then these are gonna get used. Oh, yeah!

Not only is it a great set, it also comes in great colors too!

I know a lot of time and effort went into this and I really hate to ask (because I know how a person can become sick of their own project if they work too long on it)....but is there any chance of a full-height window that is entirely slats (like the doors) please?

I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.

I truly appreciate all your thanks and it's good to be back.

maybesomethingdunno - Most of my sets have some sort of expansion and yours sounds like a good idea.

I love what you made! By the way, am I right to assume that the wooden slits in one of your recolors are not meshed in?

Great set! But is there supposed to be two same sized but differently named master files for the master tall closed window? The two files (master and master2) come up as a guid conflict.....

Toomany - You are right and tb-PG_1Tile_Tall_Closed-MASTER2.package can be deleted.
