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.
UPDATE AS OF JANUARY 16th 2011
Sorry for the trouble guys! The windows had a wall mask issue in which placing the windows, closing your game, then reentering the lot caused crashing. I tracked down a person who had this issue, bound them to a chair, made them test profusely against their will, and received a pleasant outcome If you redownload the file, all of the windows are updated and fixed. If you have any other problems, please post them down below. Happy creating!

Windows and Shutters FTW!

WA introduced these awesome windows, but they didn't give any options with them! They had to be on two tiles, and only came in open or closed forms. What the hell is that!? I am a builder, you can't give me pretty items and make it have a giant downfall. That's just jerk-like!

So, I took it upon myself to expand the windows. In this set, you get:

Small / Medium / Tall Double Tile Windows
- Small / Medium / Tall Single Tile Windows
- Small / Medium / Tall Closed Shutters
- Small / Medium / Tall Open Shutters

...so you can mix and match as you want! Look below for an example!



Price & Location

Prices:
Short Shutters: $40
Regular Shutters: $60
Tall Shutters: $80

Short Windows: $180
Regular Windows: $200
Tall Windows: $220

Location:
Shutters: Buy Mode > Decorations > Curtains
Windows: Build Mode > Windows

Why are the Shut Textures Darker?
Ah, yes, this was pointed out to me. And, to be honest, I was going to fix it. However, if I fixed the brightness, it wouldn't match EA's two existing windows, and would make a different problem. A group of people and myself decided it was best to leave it as is, hope you don't mind :D

Polygon Counts:
Both Short Windows - 1150 verticies / 792 faces
Both Medium Windows - 1398 verticies / 928 faces
Both Tall Windows - 1892 verticies / 1188 faces
Short Closed Shutters - 160 verticies / 108 faces
Medium open Shutters - 356 verticies / 216 faces
Medium Closed Shutters - 167 verticies / 108 faces
Medium open Shutters - 334 verticies / 216 faces
Tall Closed Shutters - 167 verticies / 108 faces
Tall Open Shutters - 334 verticies / 216 faces
