This mod is a default override for EA curtains, shutters and awnings that enables them to shift up and down walls.
All of them have the correct diagonal shift except for any 3 tile wide curtains and the awning end pieces - those never had a correct diagonal shift to begin with and I couldn't figure out how to fix them.
I have also enabled these to be placed off walls and (most of them) can intersect other objects without use of the "moveobjects" cheat. They are still flagged as a wall object though, so when placed on a wall they will still hide with walls down/cut away.
All of them automatically purchase another after placement, including the awnings.

Diagonal shift examples:



Fixed the diagonal shifts for these two:


Can be placed off walls and intersect other objects without cheats:


Recats:
To try and deflate the bloated misc deco section, I have recategorised the two canopies from Generations to show up under the curtains section instead of misc deco in function sort. These also show up under room sort>kids>wall decortaions.
A canopy from Supernatural has been moved from misc deco to the curtains category as well.


Files:
Separate files are included for the base game and each expansion and stuff pack that comes with curtains up to and including Island Paradise, except for the Katy Perry Stuff pack. I do not plan on purchasing Movie Stuff or Into the Future either.
There are also 2 combination files, one that combines all the expansion packs, and one that includes the whole lot.

Conflicts:
This mod is a default override and changes each curtain's OBJD resource, it will conflict with any other mod that also changes this resource.
If you have a conflicting mod in your downloads, nothing serious will occur, but this mod's intentions may not take effect. You can make this mod 'higher priority' by popping it in your overrides folder, or removing the conflicting mod.



More Shiftable Stuff:
Me - Mirrors Shift & Hide With Walls Down
HugeLunatic - Shiftable Cabinets (This also makes them hide with the walls down.)

-Enjoy! Al

Yeah, the problem with most shiftable curtains and such is that, while they do shift, they are still visible when walls are down. Intuitive idea!

Thank you very much for this! You've done a great job!

This override is godly levels of awesome. Finally my blinds will no longer hover awkwardly above the windows they're meant to be covering. Great job!

Thanks all
SeeMyu, I loved your curtain set, I wish that's how EA would do it; separate right and left pieces with tileable rods - great idea!

I had granthes in my game, but I see that's not been updated. Thanks for this detail Also thanks for the override tip, I didn't realize what that folder was for.

This is great! I never knew such mod existed before, but I'm totally taking this one! Though, do you know if this works with patch 1.55? I just don't want to patch my game yet. Any hope?

Yep, it works, and it's unlikely that a patch would ever break it.

Super mod! It was always so frustrating to try and match up curtains with windows and this will make that so much easier! Thank you!

I also was using granthes but there didn't have the new ep curtains yet. Hope all is well on that end. So, in the interest of keeping curtains by same person, I'll be using all these. So thanks so much for doing them all. EA didn't do a very good job of curtain window match up. Thanks again.

My number one pet peeve is curtains that do not fit a window. Thank you so much for that. Too bad you couldn't figure out those 3-tile diagonals.

Is this still working for patch 1.66?

Thank you so much! It has been bothering me that so many of the curtains only cover half of the window, and I've been itching to change it! YOU ARE A SIMSAVER!

I love the idea of shifting my curtains. I love to have curtains in my Sim houses. I have a question, please. Does your mod conflict with the function of any CC automatic curtains? You know, the ones that automatically close and open according to the time of day?
Thank you in advance.

Hi, I'm pretty sure they won't cause a conflict if the CC is a brand new object, but I'm not 100% sure. You can use Delphy's Dashboard to check if you want to be certain http://modthesims.info/d/387006
