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.

I absolutely love the "Gearhead" windows from Apartment Life, but felt that they needed further editing apart form the few that I had already done about a year ago. I have removed the muntins from the windows, gave them two widths along with three other sizes (privacy 1, privacy 2, and counter) which will make your building experience easier. The objects are slaved to the original gearhead windows, so recolor those instead.


Window Recolor by CuriousB @ Eclectica on LJ. (Kingdom of Rust)
Piggis-Sims also has some solid recolors of the Gearhead windows.
File Names
The names of the files may seem confusing by reading them, but it's done in a very organized fashion. Simply, 2T/1T means how many tiles the object takes up, P/P2/C means Privacy/Privacy 2/Counter, Cl/Op mean Closed/Open, and D means diagonal.

Sims 3 Update
I've finally caved in and gotten ambitions and high end loft stuff, so expect to see conversions of (only) these windows soon. How soon? When I figure out how the game's packaging editor works. For moral reasons, I'm not going to convert these with TSR workshop.
