Picked upload! An Improved Thicker Transparent Wall

by hazuitokage Posted 12th Nov 2009 at 7:44 PM - Updated 21st Jul 2012 at 12:03 AM by hazuitokage : Fixed version of the set added !

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.
New version of the set, tested for patch 1.33 and fixed with Granthes fix for pets !!
A huge thank you to Volvenom and Corpntr for fixing the set in my place, since I've been mostly absentee for the past year (and more).
Unfortunately, the diagonal are still borked, but there seem to be no fix for that.
You'll find the whole fixed set in it's own zip file, it is named "TransparentSetFixed".
Enjoy and once again a big THANKS to Volvenom and Corpntr !!

Here is the upgraded version of my full wall transparent window, straight and diagonal.
Note that:
- it is not seamless on purpose. I am working on a seamless version.
- This version will NOT overwrite my previous version of a Thicker Transparent Window. If you decide to use this one over the other, just delete the old one.
- If you wish to be alerted to eventual upgrades to this new version, please subscribe to this thread.

It features :
- The best luminosity a window can bring (it's cloned on the most luminous one-tile window in the game).
- A new and improved mesh (better reflections on the sides of the window pane).

Added to the set are 3 full wall transparent doors (warning : they do not look good on diagonal walls due to the difference in size) :
- One with transparent handle (a simple conversion from the full wall door in the game)
- One with no handle whatsoever, essentially similar to the glass window.
- One similar to the precedent, but with a round glass inset to indicate where the door is.

Plus a thin glass column I made as an experiment. I have no real use for it at the moment, but I'm including it.

All items cost 10 simoleons and are located in their respective categories.





One last thing : making glass objects and making a glass FLOOR tile are very VERY different matters. A glass floor is NOT possible at the moment, so please, do not request one. Once someone finds out a way of making them, I'm pretty sure they will be offered for download asap.

Have fun ! ^^

Polygon Counts:
Window straight and diagonal : vertices : 528 /triangles : 572
door with handle and no-handle : vertices : 306 /triangles : 344
door b : vertices : 146 /triangles : 88
column : vertices : 104 /triangles : 74

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Those are windows. That's where you will find them. Apply them on the walls.

Thank very much for all the effort it must have taken you to create this MOD, I appreciate your comments about a glass floor and roof and am waiting for a MOD developer to work out how to do it.

Thanks for these walls, I have used them in almost every house I've built so far. The only thing is, I recently tried Delphy's Sims3 Dashboard and it has marked the walls and door as corrupted files. I haven't deleted them as I'd hate to stop using them, but I was wondering whether this is an issue you were aware of? My game is always a bit laggy because I use a bunch of CC so I haven't noticed these walls causing that big of an issue, but if it's something that can be fixed I thought I would bring it up.

Hello LadyElina,
I'm aware of the situation with the objects. I had a lot of game troubles these past months and a very busy life, so I didn't get around to fix them and repost them yet, which I plan to do as soon as I can. In the mean time, if you're already using Delphy's dashboard, you can fix them very easily with it. (I know I should do it myself, but I just don't have the time for the moment -___-).

I thought about doing those versions, it's on the drawing board, unfortunately, I can only start creating again when I have solved my game problems and have more RL free time. Which should be soon. I hope.

The transparent door is *definitely* the best part. I hate having to intersect a cool wall with an ugly door.

thanks for the upload, but may I suggest for the next upload can you add maybe a glass double door and glass garage door, I know it may be over the top but it would be awesome. Thanks

Due to my crazy habit of installing every sims 3 CC that crosses my eyes, I have to delete and reinstall all of my CC over again for many times. But I never forget to go to this thread each time and download this creation of yours so I can include it in my game. Truly, this is one of the most gorgeous sims 3 CC I've ever seen!

This is likely one of the most useful build items I've seen for the Sims 3 yet. Keep up the good work!

Would it be possible in future versions to release a version with a recolorable door handle? That would be fantastic.
