Matte & Glass Door - Single

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.
This is another base game double door that apparently has never been made into a one tile. Born from my boredom, desire to do something half-assed creative, and browsing the WCIF. I've found that I really like this one tile one better than the two tile. It also matches the OFB International windows quite well for size and shape, you just need cc recolors to get the textures to match.



The files contain no textures and are linked to there base game double door counterparts. Each one has a linked diagonal, and there is a door as well as an arch included.

...look at me trying to inflate my download count... ...and I'm still wondering how to claim my bonus points...

Polygon Counts:
Door - 480
Arch - 36

Love it! I always wondered why certain doors were made to be only a 1-tile or 2-tile. Great job!

Thank you for this! I've always liked the look of this door, but I have sorely missed having a single version of it. But no more, thanks to you! .

Hooray! Thank you so much!

I like building modern house, but I always had to use the 2-tile version when I wanted to use something other than the OFB International set. I'm soo happy!

Bonus points for both doors in the form of chocolate have been given in the other thread. You did a great job with these; they turned out very well! I'm so happy I'd keeping pressing that "Thanks" button if it would let me.

Glad you like them! And I'm really glad I did them as I really like this as one tile. It's great to have an alternative to the OFB ones.

/me wipes chocolate off face... =)

Any recolors available anywhere?

Edit: Duh, the 5 Maxis colors are already included, which is all I wanted - thanks.
