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.
From time to time I get requests from friends who are fellow simmers to make things to use in their houses, and if it is something I can make then I usually do. However, I don't upload all the things I make as that would be a bit random, and usually I just send/give the creator a file to use in their house.

Anyway, I got a couple of requests that were almost in a theme, so here is a little "yard sale" of some of my requests.

The door is a remesh of the base game interior colonial door, and is base game compatible. It is a fabulously cheap 400 simoleons, and it is repository linked to the original door and so picks up any recolours you may have of that door in your downloads folder.

This is just the standard Double Open Me window on placed on 3 tiles and could not have been made without MaryLou's fabulous window templates which can be found HERE This window is repository linked to the NL window and so will pick up any recolours of the Open Me window you have in your downloads folder. PRICE 210 simoleons, requires NightLife EP

This is a repositioning of an original remesh by Windkeeper; her original window (which was a remesh of a Maxis original) can be found here. This is just a 2 tile version of that mesh and I have credited Windkeeper's work in the object. This window is repository linked to the NL window and so will pick up any recolours of the Open Me window you have in your downloads folder.
PRICE 180 simoleons, requires NightLife EP


There are 3 files - just the door, just the windows and both windows and doors, so you can pick what you want. You must place the diagonal and straight versions in your download folder to get the diagonals to work. ENJOY!


Polygon Counts:
Double Colonial Door Straight & Diagonal = 772 polys
OpenMe Window Tall 2 tiles Straight & Diagonal = 872 polys
OpenMe Window 3 tiles Straight & Diagonal = 1240 polys

I could hug you for the Colonial double-door alone. It is really hard to find a two-tile Colonial door that would be suitable for an earlier-Colonial house. But I think that a "thanks" would work much better ... thank you!
