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 have been building again - and this time I wanted to make a warehouse type building - but as usual, no window by EA that fulfilled my requirements...so I did a remesh of the Apartment Life GearHead Windows. I was NOT going to upload these as I kind of felt these were Fways set, and the fabulous Liam Set by Adele is really awesome, and those are factory windows too.

Anyhoo, Corrie asked me for these windows and told me I should upload them, so here they are



The windows are full length, so are the height and width of single wall on the 1 tile version and the two tile covers a two pieces wide piece of wall.

BONUS WINDOW
In the title I refer to a bonus window; it is a privacy window I have been working on for this set, but has an extra feature; the window will open; using a sim, click on the window and choose open. Later, choose closed. Unfortunately, I was NOT able to get the open and close trick to work on the diagonal, but hopefully this not quite perfect version will be fun in your game.
Here is a little film of the small window in action.....watch the small window...watch it.....YAY!!





PRICES and COLOUR OPTIONS

Privacy = 85 simoleons
1 tile 125 simoleons
2 Tile 250 simoleons

These are repository windows, and so will pick up any recolours of the original AL windows you may have in your Downloads folder, and have the four original colours. To recolour these windows, recolour the original AL windows.




Polygon Counts:
2 Tile New Gear City Long Windows Straight 988 polys
1 Tile New Gear City Long Windows Diagonal 772 polys
1 Tile New Gear City Long Windows Straight 674 polys
2 Tile New Gear City Long Windows Diagonal 1191 polys
Closed New Gear City Privacy window Diagonal 688 polys
Opening New Gear City Privacy window Straight 688 polys

Additional Credits:
Echo, for helping with the open close window, Corrie for asking and encouraging and testing - EA/Maxis for the original mesh, Fway for just being awesome, SIMPE, all the tutorial makers, and MTS for a place to share my stuff.

Thank you so much for completing this set. Only thing is, the 1 Tile New Gear City Long Windows Straight by [email protected] and the Opening New Gear City Privacy window Straight by Leesester does not take the recolors .

@Mapat It sounds like you may have a CEP fix in. If the window I linked to is no longer the master window then that may happen.

They might not be there are different windows and that is how EA/I did it. I might have repod SOME to the one tile open, and you have a CEP that repos them ALL to the one tile closed - or vice versa.

thank you, i am obsessed with these windows and overuse them to a disturbing extent so more sizes of them is exactly what i need in my life right now. these will be perfect in conjunction with fway's add-ons.
