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.

Hi everyone ,

I converted these two Victorian curtains from TS4 :
  • Victorian Indulgence Curtains (345§) - 3 channels
  • Victorian Over-Indulgence Curtains (405§) - 3 channels

Have fun ,

Jim.

Polygon Counts:
Victorian Indulgence Curtains : 676/337
Victorian Over-Indulgence Curtains : 660/342

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

Hi Jim! These curtains are very beautiful, unfortunately they make my game take forever and a day to load--if it actually ever does load because I usually lose patience 30 minutes later.

I'm 99.9% certain it was these curtains because I had only installed 2 things in the last few days, your curtains and a mod. I removed the mod but I still had the problem. I even went through the whole delete my TS3 folder and generate a new one thing and the game still took over 30 minutes to load properly, but once I removed your curtains everything worked like a charm.

Shame really, because they are quite lovely. Perhaps there is a conflict or something, I can't see how that could be with an object though.

Hi LovethMia,

I don't know what to say ; this is the first time someone tell me that :s. I have these curtains in my game and it work properly.

Anyway thank you for telling.

I hope that you don't mind, I used an older version of TSRW to make a 2-story version of the single-width curtains!

Reason = That is also one thing (well, two things actually) that the "Sims 3" game is lacking: 1) multi-story window treatments and 2) multi-story windows!
