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.
As some of you may know, I have been very sick these past few years and was even sicker this last year, which didn't leave much room for sims projects. Hence, this project (which has been near completion forever) wasn't finished and I haven't spent much time around the site. But not that I'm feeling a little better, more projects are on the way, starting with this one! At last! These include almost all the one-tile base game windows made into two-tile windows, which you will remember from Leefish's sims2 area. Now, if you want one window centered above your two-tile door, you can!

The pictures tell what each one's name is, and the final zip has all of them in it. The others are packaged individually for ease of download.
Sims3packs of these will be available on Lee's site soon.
These do not replace the originals.

THE STRAY WINDOW HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE BY LEEFISH AND CAN BE FOUND: HERE
Please be sure to thank the lovely fish if you download it. Or if you download these, because these windows would not exist without her help.

Thank you very much to all who supported me and a special SPECIAL thanks to Leefish, who is wonderful and kind and taught me everything I needed to know about making windows. You are amazing! <3

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.

This is a brilliant idea and so needed, I've lost count how many times it irritated me that I could not center a window. I'm really glad you felt well enough to upload them

I have wanted some of these since the game came out. Thank you! Now I can center my windows without having to change the size of my rooms.

Seriously, this was very needed, and I am very grateful you are feeling well enough to complete and upload these, they were sorely needed.

Speaking of which, I hope you are permanently on the mend. I can't imagine being sick that long, and I truly hope it is behind you for good.

Only a few of these windows work. Most of them display the wrong window or a hole in the wall.

Highly curious: Is there an option to mod the opposite way? For example take a 2 tiles door and make it one tiles?

Still struggling with CAW :x

You can. As long as the size isn't too big to fit on the tiles and you're willing to resize it if it isn't.

I can't believe I missed this for so long! It's something I've been wishing for, and my own meshing skills proved inadequate (I have a *lot* to learn). Thank you so much!

Sorry to hear about your illness, btw, and thank you doubly for taking time to share this with us during difficult times.
