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.
Ok, so I've been working on this for a while (months), and there are still some things that I haven't been able to fix... the animations are still as they are in the standard maxis door... meaning the garage folds up into midair... and the stupid dang [email protected]#$% shadow on the door I can't figure out...
But here it is as far as I've been able to take it...
It will enable building rear entry garages without using any cheats, and will enable having garages facing each direction on the same lot if you do use it in conjunction with the sideways garage method... please note that cars will disappear and reappear as they do in other sideways garages, the cars won't be animated driving out the back of the lot...
If anyone out there can improve it, fix it, please do, release it as your own if you must, I don't care anymore... I just want to be able to build with it...

Polygon Counts:
3798 - same as maxis original door
