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.
A set of curtains in four heights, each as a tied-back and a straight version. They’re designed to be as versatile as possible ‒ neither super modern nor super oldfashioned ‒ , so they should fit a variety of styles, and the lenghts ought to work for most of the Maxis windows by default. They’re a little more than one unit wide so look quite continuous when put next to one another.

I also edited my Cabin Slats Add-Ons so that they can be used in conjunction with these and other curtains (no clipping); screenshots: 1 / 2.

Each version is in a separate package so you can pick and choose which ones you want, however you must keep the Medium Tied-Back package since it contains all the textures and strings (the other versions all reference that one).

  • Tall ‒ fits a full-length window on a short wall
  • Medium ‒ floor-length curtain for regular windows on a short wall (e.g. Octopane, Double Hung ..)
  • Short ‒ window-length curtain for regular windows (e.g. Octopane, Double Hung ..)
  • Counter-Height ‒ for windows that go over counters (e.g. Box of Light or these)

Straight and tied-back versions are always in the same thumbnail so one can switch between them with the in-game design tool; the swatches are sorted so that the straight ones come first. Available for 100§/110§/120§/135§ in twelve solid colours each.

Most of the windows on the screenshots are Maxis, the rest are by myself.

The game definitely could use better curtain options, so thanks for this.

If I only installl your "pbox_curtain-simple_counterheight-straight" and "pbox_curtain-simple_counterheight-tied-back" packages, the textures if them are lost. But if I install the whole set, the colors of curtains come back. Which curtain is the main item inculde all textures?

I'm searching for every new idea to deal with the Sims! To me this game's just like a tool. One can change and create everything he/she wants!

This game is seriously lacking in window dressing options. Thanks for bringing in some more classy colors.

This is something I have wanted since the Sims 4 came out, and seeing as I have used a lot of your stuff for years, I know this is going to work amazingly! Thank-you SO much. <3
