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.
Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

Yes I have tested the windows in game and it works nice, at least for me

These are two windows that I worked with for some time. The smaller window was no problem with. 2-story window was the problem. I could not get the top of the wall to disappear (see picture) so therefore I have not uploaded it before.

With Late Night and the latest patch, EA has changed the walls and windows, so now it is possible to completely remove the top side of the wall.

If you want to use the two-story window, it is important that you flip the two parts of the law to fit exactly.

The small window will cost $ 220 and two-story window parts will cost $ 265 apiece.

Polygon Counts:
Tall Extended Window: 478 vertices and 340 faces

Big Extended Window bottom: 297 vertices and 148 faces
Big Extended Window Top: 780 vertices and 592 faces

Additional Credits:
I want to thank EA for the game, the developers of the tools and autors of different tutorials

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.
