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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

I've made security bars for windows, that are placed in front of the winodw like curtains.

You find them under Decorative->Courtains and they come in two colours.

Polygon Counts:
384 polygons

Additional Credits:
The idea of making security bars for windows isn't mine, fzephon27 had it first in this upload (, but they weren't working for me, plus I wanted them to have thinner bars to make them look more realistic, so I made my own ones.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is so cool! I actually have a friend, and her house has bars on the windows, lol.

If God intended for there to be Pay-sites for the Sims 2, He would have given us all Paypal accounts.

These are especially useful now that we have apartment buildings.

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at
