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.
By default, these blinds look like they’re designed to withstand a nuclear war or something .. which is fine in and of itself, but it makes them rather impractical to use. Here’s an override that makes them less clunky, plus a one-tile version to match.

Half-open versions of these are available here.





The two-tile version overrides the MLOD/MODL and LITE of the original; the one-tile version is a custom object that references all textures from the large one (so any overrides for that will work for this one as well). It costs 55§ and is available in the usual curtain locations in all colour variants of the large one.



Polygon Counts:
Like the original minus 4V/8F or something.


s4pe, Milkshape, TSRW.

Another very much needed item. Thank you. I wonder what is up with Maxis and all of these giant window coverings? Thank you for making these, I have the hardest time finding decent curtains and blinds in the game.

Thanks a bunch! I just put the originals in my house, saw how huge they were and was like, "Nope," and replaced them with a different curtain instead lol This was soo needed. Maxis needs some better object designers lol (ones with common sense would be nice >_>)
