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.
The Sims 4 has a lot of diverse build styles, some of which we've never really had in the other games, and of particular interest to me are many of the essential southwestern build items. I've decided to adapt some of the key items over.

Adapt is the key word here - The Sims 4 has such a different art style that a straight up conversion wouldn't look too good. I love the "Charm and Clarity" windows added with The Sims 4: Discover University, but like most TS4 windows, they were lacking in depth and had some odd quirks. So I took the single counter window, adjusted the mesh to make it a little more three dimensional, and crafted a whole window set out of it.



The result is six windows: a privacy window, three counter-height windows and two tall windows, all fully recolourable and with custom lights so they let exactly as much light in as they're supposed to. The single windows are two tiles wide, and the double windows are three tiles wide.

I also made two separate RGB layouts - one where the lintel is identical inside and outside, and one where the lintel is the same colour as the rest of the inside.



Just like in Discover University, these windows work just as well for Tudor and English Cottage builds as they do for Adobe ones - these are really so versatile that they'll work with anything, and they have cute little details like chips and latches. The "Adobe and Away" windows can all be found under Windows for 45 each.

I hope you enjoy this versatile, rustic little set as much as I do.

Polygon Counts:
Privacy: 686 vertices

Counter single: 830 vertices

Counter double: 1165 vertices

Counter wide: 1178 vertices

Tall Single: 942 vertices

Tall Double: 2081 vertices

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 Qahne! Thank you for uploading these! May I ask you where you have found the short wooden decoration beams that appear in your screenshots, please? They will fit perfectly along with your new adobe windows, in my house! Thank you!

edit: apparently, they look like a 4t3 conversion, but I don't find anything... thanks again for your help...
