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.
After several weeks of head-to-desk banging (resulting in an odd bulge in my forehead) I give you...The Closure! This is 3-tile version of the EA garage door that came with base game. Designed for that second garage or just for small homes that want to enclose parking spaces. This fits on 3 straight tiles and 2 diagonal tiles.

The Technical Bits
  • Channels 2 (door/frame)
  • ยง550
  • Build/Doors
  • Has diagonal
  • Has all the same presets as EA 4-tile door

...now where is that ice pack...

Polygon Counts:
High - 1850
Low - 1009

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
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.

I look at garages in real life when I'm out and about, and this is what always bugged me about that garage door in the base game. Too dang big for some homes. Thanks for sharing this. ^_^

This is such an enrichment to the game, and opens up more possibilities with smaller homes. I like to leave a one-tile space on either sides of the garage doors, but a 6-tile can be disproportionately wide on smaller homes. A 5-tile garage will be much better.
