Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update on Feb 28th 2006: I have added the missing diagonal version to the mesh package, please redownload the file called MatchingCornerstoneCurtainsMesh.zip and replace the previous straight version with the new one for the diagonal to work correctly.


As requested by MaggieBite, here's a modified version of the Cornerstone Victoriana Velvet Drapes that will match any bedding you have in your game (either Maxis or custom). It's a completely separate object from the Maxis curtain with its own GUID, and should not override the original. The fabric part of the curtain borrows its texture from any bedding you have in your downloads folder, while the metal/tassel parts of the curtain can be recolored separately (to recolor the fabric, you have to make a recolor of the Colonial Ironwood Bed bedding). There is also a silver recolor of the metal/ tassel parts of the curtain that can be downloaded separately.

Catalog section: Decorative/ Curtain
Polygons/ vertices: 1362 polygons/ 1452 vertices (same as the Maxis original)

Redistribution: You can freely share the meshes along with recolors you make as long as the mesh file stays free to download at all times, and you post a link to this thread. The curtains can be freely included in (free) lot downloads.

File/mesh names:
HS_MatchingCornerstoneCurtainsMesh.package
HS_MatchingCornerstoneCurtainsMeshDiagonal.package
HS_MatchingCornerstoneCurtainsSilver.package (recolor of the metal/tassel parts)

Credit to:
Maxis for the mesh

(The screenshots are only examples of what different bedding textures look like on the curtain, but your options are not limited to the options in the pictures.)

The white bed frame recolor by urshekke can be downloaded here.

This is such a fabulous idea! Thanks for making it.

These are so wonderful! I use them constantly because I'm obsessed with having things match (unfortunately I don't think Maxis feels the same way!). Would you mind if I made a request? Would it be possible to make the shower curtain for the Colonial ComboCleen match any bedding as well? I have about 70 different beddings and only 3 recolors for the shower curtain...modders must not find recoloring shower curtains very amusing! ^_^ Again, these are awesome, THANKS!!!

If I'm French, Scottish, Irish, and who knows what else, how come I always have to check the boring "white" box?

This is not helping me organize my already over stuffed downloads folder! :P

I absolutely love these and love the idea that they all match. It was driving me crazy to have different colored curtains that didn't match and well, you have now saved me some money on therapy time. Which makes me happy but my therapist very very sad...

Thank You

My love for you was so deep, It nearly destroyed me.

I've had these for a few months, they are great. If at all possible can you do this with the new "Window Dressing" Drapes?
