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.
Made some add-ons for my favourite BG door, because you can never have too much mid-century modern stuff. Also I like my items to match in nice little sets. Here you'll find:
  • Niceland Door Solid Version - $385, found under Build/Doors, 3 presets, recolorable, 4 channels each
  • Niceland Window - $70, found under Build/Windows, 3 presets, recolorable, 4 channels each

The first presets of both match the first one of the original ea door. The others don't cause they're hideous.

The door recolors differently in each preset - I didn't want to choose between having the two sides recolorable separately and having a channel for the handle. So the first one has a channel for each side of the door and an overlay over the handle. The second and third have just one for the door and a recolorable handle.

BG compatible, compressed.

Enjoy!

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 one very, very useful addition. I might just have to go in and retrofit some lots. Thanks a ton!

Oh, might I leave a suggestion? A version with only the top window and nothing below it.

Adding to Pi; a counter-height version.
I've often wanted this one as a solid door, so thanks

Oh counter height would be great. Thank you so much for these, I love addon sets. EA have a terrible habit of making really nice windows and doors, but never giving them additions that match.

Like the small one on the right on the preview pic? It's already made by Gelina, see below >>

Or making them almost match, which is just as infuriating :D
For the small window and the counter-height version, check out Gelina's Florida Windows Set. Her downloads blog went missing recently but luckily the link to these still works.

I didn't even think of those when I made my post - I have them, and they're lovely. At least now we'll have more matching stuff
