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.

UPPDATE 21.11.05 !

Finally I have managed to uppdate this set to Base-Game compatibility (Original game only). All users that experienced problems with the prev files, pls DL the uppdated files and overwrite the old ones.

Hi all.

By request from SuicideVixxxen I give you the "new" Octothorp Atrium Window in Church Style.
I say new because I have removed the small wood bars in the window and added a stained glass.
No EP pack's should be needed.

In the pack there are 5 files:
1. Moon_Ez Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style
-This file holds the new mesh and the "Jesus in the wather" stained glass window.
2. Moon_Ez Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style White frame
-A recolor of the frame in white wood.
3. Moon_Ez Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style Glass2
-This file holds the "Jesus with lambs" stained glass window.
4. Moon_Ez Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style Glass3
-This file holds the "Diamonds" glass window.
5. The "Template.bmp" for the glass.
-For easy creation of new stained glass.

Both the window frame and the glass can be recolored.
-> The frame:
Just do a regular recolor of the default Octothorp Atrium Window. NOT THE NEW MESH. The window will automaticly pick up all recolors on the default Octothorp Atrium Window. Also the ones you allready have in your DL folder.
-> The glass:
Start SimPE and choose "color options". Klick "Load Object" on the top right and browse to the folder where you extracted the files and choose "Moon_Ez Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style.package". Klick "Open" and "Start" and save your new package.
In the next window "Subset Selection" you really need only to choose the glass (at the bottom) as any changes to the "windowtrim" wont show in the game.
Continue as usual.

Credit! A big thanks to Lisen801 for her wonderful Small Swedish Christian Church that I used for ceenery.

So. I hope all you church builders, and ofc all you others also enjoys the Fantastic Octothorp Atrium Window - Church Style Window

This will go perfectly with the church posters I made thanx!

Did Kurt Cobain kill himself? Well let's see
  • his wife offered someone $50,000 to kill him 3 months before his death
  • he had 3 times the lethal does of heroin; he couldn't have shot himself
Doesn't sound like suicide to me for more info

My Mom (who loves the Sims as well!) asked how she could build a church last night!

She will be thrilled when she sees this!

Great job! :D

I downloaded file but only one stained glass shows (but I cant place it) the white recolor shows and works. I only have original game. One stained glass shows but seperatly from the original window. The recolor shows up with the original window. Did I mess it up? I like the stained glass but, I cant select it for some reason.
