This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I use these blinds quite a bit in my game and screenshots. Thought it was about time I shared my recolours with everyone here at MTS. 6 AL wood, 5 Malm & 10 Lack recolours, you can find more recolours by me HERE. I have included the MESH by TheNinthWave in the zip file, you can view the original upload by TheNinthWave HERE.

ETA: Many thanks to ScaryRob who suggested I mention that these blinds do not work on diagonal windows. However if you use 'moveObjects On' & 'SnapObectToGrid', it is possible to place them on a diagonal window.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Curtains. Price: §335.



Custom Content used in my screenshots: Maxis add-on: New ‘Function of Plate Glass’ windows and doors by moune999.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. The MESH and a colour chart is included in the zip file.

Additional Credits: SimPE - CEP - GIMP - Milkshape - UV Mapper - The Compressorizer - Maxis/EA Games and MTS.
TheNinthWave for the mesh.
amythestfenix for the extra wood colours and for allowing me to use them.

Thank you so much for these. I downloaded all of them, then popped off to get your chair(s) and desk recolours as well as the lamps, and the couch by... I forget, but the name is on the file.

This is gorgeous! No matter which window I choose, the blinds will fit perfectly. Will I ever be able to understand how this works?? Thank you so much. My homes look much more comfortable now! :D

This is great, but is it possible to have a floor length version of this?

@SweetCheri that was well timed. I had been working on it and finally got it uploaded today, you can find it HERE as well as a few other lengths. ♥

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their work...click on it.

These are the most used and usable window coverings there are. After using them dozens of times, I want to thank you again.

These are just about the only blind/curtain that works on apartment windows. Thank you Michelle.

Awesome! But how do you get them to work on two-tile windows without using 2? Or is that how you do it?

@simondarun - Yes hun, you have to use 2 blinds for 2 tile windows. ♥
