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.
As some of you may know, I have been very sick these past few years and was even sicker this last year, which didn't leave much room for sims projects. Hence, this project (which has been near completion forever) wasn't finished and I haven't spent much time around the site. But not that I'm feeling a little better, more projects are on the way, starting with this one! At last! These include almost all the one-tile base game windows made into two-tile windows, which you will remember from Leefish's sims2 area. Now, if you want one window centered above your two-tile door, you can!

The pictures tell what each one's name is, and the final zip has all of them in it. The others are packaged individually for ease of download.
Sims3packs of these will be available on Lee's site soon.
These do not replace the originals.

Please be sure to thank the lovely fish if you download it. Or if you download these, because these windows would not exist without her help.

Thank you very much to all who supported me and a special SPECIAL thanks to Leefish, who is wonderful and kind and taught me everything I needed to know about making windows. You are amazing! <3

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.
