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.

This is the ultimate part of the expansion set: I think now there are all the possible shapes to complete and coordinate the Independent Expressions Windows.

As you know the originals windows have NOT the same mesh: the single window has a double chequered frame (top and bottom), while the 2-tile one has only one chequered frame at the top.
Now you can coordinate all the types and the shapes as you like.
  • Single Window with only one chequered frame.

  • Double Window with double chequered frame.

  • Single Window with one chequered frame placed in the middle of two tiles.
  • Single Window with Double chequered frame placed in the middle of two tiles.

  • 3 Tiles Tall Window with double chequered frame.

    The diagonal mesh looks like..........the 4 tiles one........
    This thing has been made on purpose, it's not a mistake.

  • 4 Tiles Tall Window with double chequered frame.

The 3 and 4 tiles shapes with only one chequered frame at the top are already available for download at the
"Independent Expressions Inc." - Expansion Set PART - II

In the archive ML_IndependentExpression_PART-III.rar you'll find ALL this items.

In-game usage

Extract the packages from the rar archives and put them in the Downloads folder (use an archive program, or the Q-Xpress auto-installer)

You'll find the items in the Build Mode catalog - Windows, as usually.

All the elements have the automatic diagonal that shows up when you you put a window on a diagonal wall; the only exception is the 4 tiles window which is tool long to have a it.

All these elements borrow the textures from the original "Independent Expressions Inc." window therefore, if you want to recolour them just create a recolour for the original window.
Use Object Workshop and create a recolour for the Window - 2 Tile - Plate Glass, that is the master of the entire set.
Your recolor will apply to all the original windows, as well as to these new elements.
Every recolour for the original window that you may already have will be automatically available for all the new shapes.
