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.

WALLWINDOWS (GLASS SET) V. 3
by Numenor


--------------------------------------------------------

22 JUNE 2006 - ADDED: GARAGE DOOR (Nightlife required)

15.JAN.2006 - UPDATED: WALL BOUNDARY - If you have downloaded the Seamless or the Standard set since the release of V.3 (09 jan 2006), please REDOWNLOAD the attached "WallWindow_Seamless_BASIC_set_UPD-15jan06.zip" file.
What's new: Now the Wall Boundary can be placed on upper floors, and will not delete any more the fences. Please note that you can put wall-mounted objects on the same wall where there is a WallBoundary, but you can't put windows on that wall.
Note also that tou can put two WallBoundaries on the two sides of a straight wall, but you can use only one side of the diagonal walls (this limitation can be workarounded using the "move_objects on" cheat).
This new version of the WallBoundary is compatible with the old versions: therefore, your old lots will work fine without editing them. But since this version is improved, you may find useful to replace only some wallboundaries (for instance, the old ones that "delete" the fences).


09.JAN.2006
After more than 30,000 downloads and almost 9 months since the first release, it's time for a complete renewal of the WallWindow set.
This thread has grown too long and untidy, and needs a good clean up.

WHAT'S NEW
  • First off, the layout of this thread: all the info are now contained in the "WallWindow documentation" - downloadable below - that describes (with pictures) the various WallWindow items and their usage. The documentation is provided in RTF and PDF format, so that anyone can easily open it, even using the WordPad program provided by Windows.
  • Important changes have been done to almost all the WallWindows items: the UVmapping, the meshes, the alignments (no more "gaps" between angled windows!), even the price of the items (for a better displacement in the game catalogue).
  • See the documentation for details.

WHAT IS *NOT* CHANGED
  • Fear not! All the lots that include the old WallWindow v.2 will still work: only, they will look better!
  • And all the existing recolours will apply flawlessly to the new v.3.

FOR THE NEWCOMERS: WHAT IS THE WALLWINDOW SET?
It's a set of windows, doors and other items that have in common these two feature: 1) they are made of glass; 2) they completely cover a wall section, side to side and floor to ceiling. The WallWindows can be used to build glass walls, big display windows, greenhouses, and many many other beautiful things

FAQ: HAVE I TO DOWNLOAD ALL THIS STUFF?
The minimum requirement is the "Seamless BASIC set" (and the Documentation, where you can find info about the content of the various archives).

FAQ: WHERE CAN I FIND THE TRANSPARENT FLOOR TILES THAT ARE SHOWN IN THE PICTURES? HOW TO BUILD THAT TRANSPARENT ROOF?
They were made by RGiles, and can be downloaded HERE. A tutorial for building the glass roof is HERE

HOW TO INSTALL
Put all the packages in the Downloads folder: no furter actions are required. You'll find the WallWindow items in the Build Mode catalog, among the other windows, doors, arches and columns.

FAQ: MY COMPUTER DOESN'T TOLERATE "RAR" FILES, CAN YOU PLEASE POST A "ZIP"?
OK, you won... YES! Here are the ZIPs!

Very sleek and futuristic. Never change clothes or play ball in a glass house lol. One question, though, where did you get the roof thing?

NM, I saw how to make it from the pictures.

First of all I wasn't trying to offend , I stated that before I made my post, but there are many people on here that don't read the post before they start with the questions, as far as the BAKA I'm not going there ,

Numenor , I removed everything and I'm back in the game but now I can't remove to old glass columns even with move objects on , SO do I ignore them or try some other way, I tried the eyedropper thing too it doesn't even register them but I can't place anything there either. Any advice. By the way I did remove the walls & deck text and replaced them with the original, SO far my game has stopped crashing, but I did other things too. But it's not looking weird anymore either , so hmmmmm . Just trial and error I guess

Just back in the game and when I replaced pool with maxis default there is the back wrought iron fence at the bottom, Ummm what have I done to my game

I wasn't sure if we can have BOTH the Standard AND Seamless versions in the game at the same time. Just making sure! :D

Thank you everybody for your kind words

Rythela - You should get rid of the older version of the glass set; as for the custom walls contained in the edited walls.txt, they are not needed any more because all the glass items can be placed on standard walls. You can keep the custom walls.txt, though, if you like.

Jacciinatl - The columns are sometimes difficult to move/remove, because I made them off-center. To remove them, delete the wall that passes through it, and it will be easier to pick it up. The wrough iron fence is the default replacement for the custom walls (including the pool walls) that can't be found in the walls.txt; if you restore the original walls.txt, all the custom walls you have in the lots will be replaced by the black fence.

Daysies - I'm sure that both skins are by Maxis: the pictures were taken from my test environment and there are no downloaded packages at all; they are hidden skins from the EP, I guess. I find them very funny!

RattySim, Bethnrandy - Yes, you can have both sets at the same time; actually, this was the main reason for having reworked the sets

FatD - You're right, I forgot the picture; now I've uploaded it, but you know the hidden window very well so you won't see anything surprising!

All right. Thank you, Numenor! ^.^ So the Custom isn't needed for the Standard Walls, and same for the Seamless? Thank you. I wanted to make sure before I deleted anything, then because I won't be able to find anything in the Recycle bin -l-. Anyways, thank you. Your windows are coming out great.
