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.
Have you ever got annoyed by the fact that EA's full wall mirror is not actually full wallheight? I have, so I made these new mirrors.

The set consist of 3 new mirrors. A full wallheight mirror, a counterheight to full wallheight mirror and a counterheight mirror.

The mirrors can be used by themselves, or placing one next to another, they are seamless when next to each other.

Information:

Cloned from EA's full wall mirror. All mirrors have one CASTable channel, the sides.

Full wallheight mirror:



Item name: Full wallheight mirror
Category: decorations - mirrors
Price: 500

Polycount:
High lod - 36 vertices, 30 faces
Low lod - 20 vertices, 12 faces

Counterheight to full wallheight mirror:



Item name: Counterheight wall mirror
Category: decorations - mirrors
Price: 400

Polycount:
High lod - 36 vertices, 30 faces
Low lod - 20 vertices, 12 faces

Counterheight mirror:



Item name: Counterheight wall mirror lower
Category: decorations - mirrors
Price: 300

Polycount:
High lod - 36 vertices, 30 faces
Low lod - 20 vertices, 12 faces

EA for the mesh I cloned from.

Milkshape, TSRW, Photoshop and Paint.NET, which I used when making these.

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 never noticed that the EA full wall mirrors were not actually full wall... hmm. I'll have to investigate this myself and then replace the offenders :3

Also I'm loving the look of those counterheight mirrors. Definitely gonna use those for my bathrooms, or wherever else appropriate (They'd probably work above a dresser too).

Non-full full mirrors? I'll have to check that out... your mirrors are awesome! Bet it'll look weird paired with mirror rugs!
