Beautiful. Though a single download file is easier on everyone. Especially YOU!

Love the windows, I found only a couple of problems. 2 of the windows have a blue outline on one side and only when placed on diagonal walls. I'm not sure what causes this but, other than that the rest of the entire collection works fine. I appreciate the hard work it took to create this

Cool idea! Much to use!
BTW you could pack them all in one archive.

Currently playing Sims 3 full collection.

I'm getting some blue thumbnails, but I'm a little nervous about deleting all of the files in MyDocs\...\EA Games\The Sims 2\Thumbnails . Will they replace when I run the game again?

did you install all the files in one go? then the blue thumbnails are a result of the game loading some of the slaves prior to the master mesh. to fix that you could either delete the thumbs from the folder you mentioned - which would force the game to recreate them all next time you run your game - or from within the game:
press Ctrl key and right click on each of the blue icons

More build mode, plants, lights and pet stuff by me can be found at

Thanks! I love the Mission-style furniture -- always my favourite when furnishing a house. These will really help complete the look.

These are just BEAUTIFUL! Thank you very much for these windows. The look is so classic and universal, and you've done it just perfectly!

All of your stuff is great... just spent an hour downloading it all one file at a time, but it was worth it

However, would be great to have a single archive with everything

One other thought... the Maxis mission-style dining chair traps sims... a replacement dining chair would be awesome

I like these sets. A huge pain to download, but they look nice in game.
This set is so big a collection file might be cool to have sometime in the future.

Thanks.
