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.

Is this available in Sims 4? I've been looking for a diagonal wall or window and can't seem to find one. Any help would be appreciated!

I am running Sims 3 1.67 version. Do not download and install these! I did and installed as directed put them in my Packages folder and they completely corrupted my game. My game will not load even after I removed them. Now I've had to remove all my folders and put them back in from my backup a month ago. Which means I've lost all my custom homes and Sims I've created since then. Fix this or remove them please! Thanks!
