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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
After several weeks of head-to-desk banging (resulting in an odd bulge in my forehead) I give you...The Closure! This is 3-tile version of the EA garage door that came with base game. Designed for that second garage or just for small homes that want to enclose parking spaces. This fits on 3 straight tiles and 2 diagonal tiles.



The Technical Bits
  • Channels 2 (door/frame)
  • 550
  • Build/Doors
  • Has diagonal
  • Has all the same presets as EA 4-tile door

...now where is that ice pack...

Polygon Counts:
High - 1850
Low - 1009

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

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.

It's a bug that only affects some games, regardless of graphics (ati or nvidia). And yes, EA refuses to acknowledge it.

They are black in my game, I use building cheats to get rid of it. Placing lighting inside never works, for me at least. When building a garage start with one square of foundation, then use cfe to make it normal wall height, then build remaining garage with normal walls. The foundation piece tricks the room into being lit properly, I think by it thinking it is not enclosed since your using two different wall types. You *must* build the foundation piece first, before any walls and you *must* leave the foundation piece there to keep it from turning black.

What if im making a garage thats connected to my house with a foundation? Im about to talk to EA, it must have happened when i installed outdoor living stuff. Do you think if i uninstall outdoor living and reinstall it, it may fix it?
i love this garage door, it made my life lol, thank you for making it by the way (:

This is beautiful! The only issue I have with this is that the patterns on the door are so much darker than they are in CAS. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ln0xr8eHHy1qd4ppu.jpg

For me, that's a slightly modified version (I just made the frame a little darker) of the first default door, which is an off-white color I believe. Any reason this would be happening?

I've been looking for a 2-tile garage door since late 2011. Two years late, no 2-tile garage doors and this is one of the two 3-tile garage doors I found, so it's still a rarity. I figured since no one created a 2-tiled version in 2 years, maybe it was just not possible to create a functional 2-tile garage door (although I still wonder why there's not even a deco one) so I thought I'd just get a 3-tiled one instead and centre it to occupy [half square/square/square/half square] instead of just [square/square/square], but apparently we cannot centre doors that way like we can with other items such as decorative items and furniture :/
This is still going to be a really nice addiction to my game; it may not be suited for the recreation of the building where I live, but I'm sure my other houses could use this one ^_^

Thanks. I've been searching for this. EA made the doors much too big, it looks really out of place for European houses. A shortage of Hummers I guess :-).

Thank you so much! The old garage doors look like 2-car garage doors. This slimmer one looks much better proportioned on my buildings!
