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 had a couple of requests for these, this is the base game Colonial OakTowne Interior Door remeshed to an Arch. I did a double and a single version. In the pic below you can see the two arches in the foreground and the matching base game door by Maxis in the background.

I also did a remesh of the Touch of Teak Pigalle Double door down to a single door, you can find that HERE. However, I also made a 1 tile version of the arch to match the two tile Touch of Teak Pigalle Double Arch, and I am including the single arch in this upload as a bonus arch.

I have gone a bit mad on making pretty pics recently, so in case it is not clear what is in the upload see the WYSIWYG pic in the attached screen shots.

Prices and recolour options

French Arch = 180 simoleons
Colonial Double Arch = 300 simoleons
Colonial Single Arch = 230 simoleons

All arches are linked to the originals using the repository technique, and so will pick up any recolours you may have in your downloads folder

Polygon Counts:
Double Interior Colonial Arch Straight & Diagonal 176 polys
Interior Colonial Single Arch Straight & Diagonal 176 polys
1 tile Touch of Teak Pigalle French Arch Straight & Diagonal 496 polys

Thank you! It never made sense to me why Maxis didn't make these... or why I didn't look for them earlier. :D

I was just thinking that a one-tile French arch would be perfect! Glad you made these

Hi! I am a bit confused, isn't there already one-tile base game colonial arch?

(EDIT: Just found that someone already asked for the difference. Would I be able to edit the price of the existing base game object?)

I guess you could, you open the objd and change the values. It will make it a custom object though.

If you extract the OBJD from the original EA Object and put that in package (with nothing else) you can change the price there. When you put that file in your downloads folder the EA one should have the new price while everything else stays unchanged.
