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.
AL Wood, Bohemian, Colorbond and MALM recolours of the Paneled Doors and Windows Set by Raynuss. This is a great Paneled Doors and Windows Set by Raynuss. As per his policy I have included the MASTER mesh in with the recolours, however, you will have to go HERE, to get all the other doors, windows and arches that are slaved to the MASTER mesh.

ETA: As the site has disappeared I have added the MESHES. Many thanks to LadySilverwolf for letting me know that a couple of the objects have been updated. I do not know if the MESHES I uploaded contain the updated objects or not, however you grab find them

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

Found: Build Mode > Doors & Windows.

Yeehah! I don't know how I missed this set, but it's lovely. I love giant window/door sets that all match, that can be used throughout a whole house (so I got all the extra parts from Raynuss). Great color choices too! Thanks, Michelle!

I'm currently recreating the house of a deceased loved one in The Sims 2 and these doors an windows with your lovely recolors are perfect. The style for some of the doors is exactly the same as in the original home for my project and two of your recolors are surprisingly close too. Thank you very much.

Thanks so much for all your recolors. Love them, but the mesh for this set is no longer available from the blog as they have closed the blog could you post the mesh so we can enjoy your awesome recolors of this set?

@LiLSapphire - I know how frustrating it is when a site closes and the links no longer work. I added the MESHES back in July last year, look for the file "RDN_Paneled Doors and Windows.rar" under the "Files" tab, that file contains the MESHES.

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

thank you for this!! especially for making the mesh set available. I have scoured the Internet, and while a lot of Raynuss stuff can be found, this set doesn't seem to be available anywhere else.

I understand you are not responsible for the meshes, but I wanted to let you know that in my game the RDN_Paneled Arch overwrites the EA V.I.P. arch. I was remodeling a winery where I used the V.I.P. arch; when I selected the V.I.P. arch with the eyedropper tool the Raynuss arch showed instead. I then noticed the V.I.P. arch no longer appeared in the build catalog. I shut down the game, removed only the four arch meshes, both 1 and 2 tile. After restarting the game the V.I.P. arch shows again in the catalog and and shows up correctly when selected with the eyedropper tool. The remaining Raynuss meshes are still in my game and loving all the recolors--thank you for those!

Coming back to The Sims 2 after a forced break and continuing work on my last project (which Michelle created me a set of custom rugs for), I was looking for some new doors and windows and then I found this here beautiful set of meshes and recolors. Thank you, again, Michelle, for your hard work on this. You're still my favorite creator after all these years and I just cannot thank you enough!
