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.
Ok, so nothing earthshattering or spectacular, just a couple more basic windows made to fit above counter tops. This time I have taken the 1-tile Colonial and the 2-tile Colonial windows and shortened them so that they sit just above the backsplash on the counters.

The Perfect Window
- Build > Windows

Ye Olde Window
- Build > Windows

Polygon Counts:
1-Tile - 525
2-Tile - 1134

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I love this concept. Too many of the in game windows do not have matching windows for the kitchens; that bugs me. Thanks and for updating to patch 1.26. Great job!

Cool! Just what I was looking for. I saw something similar on TSR, but they wanted $$.

Do you think that maybe you could make a 1x1 door that matches the Perfect Window?

These are great! It was driving me nuts that we didn't have a nice arched window for the kitchen or bedrooms. Pretty spectacular in my book!

Can you also make a version of this set's version of "the perfect window" that is a single tile window centered on 2 tiles?

Is there a tutorial on how to center a single tile window on two tiles in s3pe?
