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.
Touch of Teak French Arch that can be extended to any width. Diagonals are included. All objects have unique GUID's.

This item uses the repository technique as described by IgnorantBliss at MTS2. To recolor use the Maxis Touch of Teak "Pigalle" French Arch".

If you like my creation or effort, please hit the THANKS button. It only takes a few seconds

I've been using these in the game and they've become one of my favorite build items. It's so nice to be able to make archways whatever size I want. Thank you!

Thank you, however, I went there and could not find a recolour, unless I missed something? Do I have to download the actual glass door maxis recolours?
