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.
"Belhooven Maroo" windows Expansion Set
Open for Business EP required


----------------------------------------------------------------
Update 18 Jan. 2008 - New Meshes
Three new meshes "windows 2 tiles centered on 3 tiles" for the Belhooven Maroo set: DoublePrivacyWindow, DoubleWindow with Standard height and DoubleWindow.



These new windows do NOT have the diagonal shapes.
The new archive is ML_Belhooven_2Tiles_Centered.rar, available in the download attachments.
The new files are also added inside the archive ML_Belhooven-ExtensionSet_ALL.rar

Also added the Collection files: Residential and Community.


----------------------------------------------------------------
8 Oct. 2007 Bugfixed:StandardHeightWindow_CenterWalls-Diagonal
There was a duplication GUIDs, now is solved.
The Updated rar is ML_Belhooven_StandardHeightWindow_CenterWalls-Diagonal.rar

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
16 March 2007 Bugfixed:PrivacyWindow-Double

The double privacy window caused a GUID conflict with the file ML-NMN_HolidaySet_MerryChristmas.package ( Animated Holyday Set )
Now the problem is solved; please redownload the window.
The Updated rar is ML_Belhooven_PrivacyWindow_Double.rar
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I made this set to expand and complete the original Maxis windows "Belhooven Maroo"

In the archive "ML_Belhooven-ExtensionSet_ALL.rar" you'll find all the files: straight and diagonal.



- Privacy "Shop" window.
- Single Window with Standard height.
- Privacy Tall Window.
- Privacy Window.



- Double Window with Standard height
- Double privacy window.



- Single Window with Standard height that can be place in the middle of two tiles.
- Privacy Tall Window that can be place in the middle of two tiles.
- Privacy Tall Window that can be place in the middle of two tiles

Extract the packages from the rar archives and put them in the Downloads folder (use an archive program, or the Q-Xpress auto-installer)
You'll find the items in the Build Mode catalog - Windows as usally.

All the items have the automatic diagonal that shows up when you you put a window on a diagonal wall.

RECOLORS
All these items borrow the textures from the original "Belhooven Maroo" window therefore, if you want to recolour them just create a recolour for the original window.
Use Object Workshop and create a recolour for the Window - Euro Mullion Short, that is the master of this set.
Your recolor will apply to the orginal windows and to all these new shapes and every recolour that you may already have will be automatically available.

ATTENTION please:
The three Maxis' window are autonomous objects, they don't share the recolours.
Therefore, if you want to create a recolour for the entire set, you have to create three separate recolours, one for each window.
