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.
And here it is (at last) the colonial "Midnight Ride" window with shutters. This is the second of two windows I made to add on to the existing Maxis set see below

For those of you who cannot see the difference, that was the plan........ If you look at the tiles below the windows in the image you will see that I have made EXACT COPIES of the originals, just changed the tile size.

The cost of the window is 175 simoleons like the original and can be found in the build catalogue with all the other windows.

The window (and the other windows in the links in this post) are all linked to the original windows so recolours of the master(s) will apply across the full set.

This is just the 1 tile shuttered version - if you want the no shutter window go to the links in the post
These windows are design mode enabled like the originals see below

I hope you like this window, meanwhile, here are my other windows: You can download them after this one if you like = 2 tile colonial no shutters
half size la fenêtre Window on 2 tiles

You have to put both files (diagonal and straight) in the download folder to work

Polygon Counts:
Both windows have the same polygon count as the Maxis originals

1178 Polys, 2010 Vertices (Straight version)

1178 Polys, 2010 Vertices (Diagonal version)

Oh my! I can finally fix my real life Sim house! It always bugged me that I could have shutters OR curtains, but not both. You are awesome!

Awesome. Thank you very much for sharing this download, I've been waiting for something like this for a while. Now we can put shutters on the single-tile dormer roof pieces. Great work!

Just a member. Pay me no mind.

This is also my favorite window and its lack of flexibility drove me to distraction. Thank you for making building traditional houses that much easier. PS I just downloaded all your windows. TY TY TY!!
