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.
Anyone who knows me knows I hate partial build sets. Usually I just grumble and curse at my game and move along or go on epic searches to find a matching item that usually involves downloading 100 other things but never finding what I was looking for. Such was not the case with the Window of All-Knowing, a store window from the Regal Living Set. The window is a pretty unique item that doesn't have many, if any, similar trades and working on a build for Moonlight Falls, I realized I'd either need to convince someone to make a centered window for me, learn to make it myself, or compromise my build aesthetic. The last was certainly not an option so, with the patience of a saint, leefish, with the help of armiel, walked me through making my own.

Of course, if you don't have the original window, I highly recommend buying it from the store. This download is only a match and does not include the original.

leefish and armiel for their hand holding, with which I couldn't have done this without.
HugeLunatic for having lovely 2-tile windows I could clone.

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.
