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.
Arch that can be extended to any width. Diagonals are included.

This item uses the repository technique as described by IgnorantBliss at MTS2.

To recolor use the Maxis ValueWood Lumber "Justa Door".

Hi i think this is fab, it looks great in game too thanks so much. I have only one comment, i can't get it to work diagonally at all. I put move objects in as well but it never worked then either. Please help me.

rainywill5: I checked them in game and they worked fine. Diagonals won't place correctly with the moveobjects cheat on. Make sure the cheat is off and they should work!!!

Thanks a lot, mate. Do these work on 45 degree and 90 degree walls?

You really should make extendible windows. That would be so awesome :D
