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.
Southern Charm

Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

In my line of accessories in the southern style, I present here doors, windows and shutters that complement the previous uploads. The windows and doors are all two-tile. There is also an open version of the door and window. I've seen on severals pictures that there are only window on some balconies. Do you use the window as door then, what do I know?

The door and window has four color channels, the open door and the shutters have three channels.

The door will cost $ 335.
The open door is among the Arches and costs $ 320
The window will cost $ 125
The open window will cost $ 125
Both shutters will cost $ 160 and is among the curtains

Polygon Counts:
Polygons, vertices / faces

Door: 1040/680
Door, open: 1566/1364
Window, both: 636/410
Shutters, both: 1106/832

Additional Credits:
As usual I would like to thank Electronic Arts for this great game, the developers of the tools necessary to do things and the authors of the tutorials.

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.

Love this set, but found a problem...

The doors work just fine on the diagonal, but the shutters don't quite line up. Included a picture so you can see what I mean.

It appears the trouble is the shutter isn't centered on the corner of the diagonal tile.

Yes i see the problem. I've never used this on diagonal walls so...
I'll try to fix it but really don't know if I have the skills...

Normally I wouldn't either, but I'm redoing one of the EA houses which is built on a diagonal, so there you go... :-)

I hope you can fix it, but if not, then that's cool. I realize meshing is hard (it's not something I've gotten into yet); so kudos to you that you can do it.

Thank you very much for this amazing set! What do you think about making 1-tile window and door?
It will help constructors to be less dependent on grid. For example I have 7 cells wide house, and I can't place existing windows symmetrically. Sadness

I discovered another bug with shutters. If they are installed on the wall outside the hidden apartment room, then while in live mode they are invisible.

You have to have World Adventures to use these ;(. I've been trying to build a french colonial plantation and finding appropriate doors and windows is a serious pain. Shout at me if you know of any similar windows, doors etc that don't require World Adventures

Thank you so much for updating your New Orleans style downloads. Your creations really bring to (simmy)life the beauty of NO, and I can finally play my favorite house again. Thanks again!

I love these. I love all things with a French/New Orleans flavour and I haven't been there either, but I want to. I honestly spend more time redesigning worlds than playing in them and these are really well made and just made my day. Thanks!

Thanks for these! They are being used in my New Orleans themed world I'm working on. They were suggested to me here on my thread about the NOLA world. I actually did live there for 5 years and miss it a lot!

was born and raised in New Orleans, this is great art work and very hard at that, you hit it spot on with the shutters and doors.. there seems to be a problem with the shutters disappearing after you add a second level and a roof top. I don't know if this is a isolated problem or if other people are having the same problem. some help would be greatly appreciated and again thank you so much for your hard work.... only other thing is the wrought iron work the column in the iron work that you did? is there a possibility of making the column like a fraction set instead of just one level, because in new orleans they build their house in the city on a foot foundation so the columns are short for a real feel and look for some houses when building . if you look at some on dumaine st or royal st in that area on the big beautiful house in 1415 third st in new orleans .. ty again
