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.
I started these windows a long time ago, then I saw that fway was making them so I abandoned them a couple of windows in. Then, sadly, fway had a total harddrive failure before he had the chance to upload. So I started again - but RL and train stations got in the way, and so several months later, here it is, the Socialite Expansion Set, Part 1.



The set is quite small as there are two different socialite windows - the Perfect Pediment and the Classical Curves. This set is the Perfect Pediment and consists of four windows and two doors. The pic above shows a 1 tile version of the Maxis window; as you can see, I made it so it tiles.



I took the big window and shrank it down to a petite version of itself, and made a 1 tile and 2 tile version of it - (see picture with all 4 windows) and made a privacy window as well.

But what are windows without doors? I had a request to make a one tile version of the Socialite double doors, and while making it thought it would be cool if I could get a surround on it to match the windows. I managed it, just, and - see pic - it tiles and so looks very grand.



Of course not everyone likes grand so I am also uploading the original requested door by Phaenoh. The stone surround door looks like this on the inside.



And finally - yes, these are custom windows, so I took an interior shot for you to see that the small windows sit nicely above a counter. See screenshots at end of post.

LATE EDIT: I forgot to mention, these are repository windows and doors and so will pick up any recolours of the original Maxis items that you may have in your downloads folder. In the related tab there is a link to Guardgians white recolours of the doors used in this set.
