Trick (for Halloween) Or Treat (for year round use)!

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.

In the spirit of Halloween, here's something delightful and not too frightful for your sims houses - a 3 tile arch (with teeth!) and some architectural trim along with a little column to use with a fence or half wall.

What you get:

3 tile arch - this is actually a bit wider than 3 tiles and when used with the trim, there will be a little gap which is easily fixed with..
5 architectural trim pieces - 2 end pieces, left and right with angled ends so the corners meet; a straight piece and 2 half pieces - left and right - to fill those little gaps at the ends of the arch.
A short column (2 subsets) - to be used with fences or half walls.
20 recolors of the arch and trim; 20 recolors of the column along with 6 recolors of the top "cap"; 3 teeth recolors- the default for the teeth is the invisible recolor. Most of the arch/trim/column recolors match in game walls.

You also get:

14 recolors of my WINDOW FILM - I've included the master mesh and it's diagonal with the recolors. 8 of the recolors are ghosts, the other 6 are so you can make it look like your doors and/or windows have cracked glass in them. You can also place the film anywhere you want if you'd like to have ghosts in places other than the windows- like outside in the yard or standing in the middle of a room! And, yes, the ghosts are Sims 3 sims.. ghosts can be whoever or whatever you want them to be!

What you should know about the meshes:
The arch is not a true arch, it will not cut a hole in the wall. You need to have a 3 tile gap in the wall to place the arch over.
The arch and trim are repositoried, with the ARCH being the MASTER and the 5 trim pieces being the slaves.
No cheats are needed to place any of the meshes. However, you will need to use "moveobjects on" to place the trim over doors and windows.
The trim pieces will all shift if you can shift objects.
Due to lighting in game, the arch is backwards when you choose it out of the catalog. Just turn it around when you place it. I did it that way so one side wouldn't be darker than the other. The back of the arch is shorter and straight and will not bleed through an upper floor.
If you have trouble grabbing the trim pieces or using the design tool, go down a floor if you're working on a house with more than one floor.

Catalog location and price:
Arch - Deco>Sculptures for 50 Simoleons
Trim - Deco>Wall Hangings for 10 Simoleons
Column - Build>Misc>Columns for 70 Simoleons

There is a residential collection file included and everything is basegame compatible. And remember: these aren't just for Halloween! With the invisible teeth recolor you can use them all year long! Hope you have a frightfully good time decorating your sims houses for Halloween.

Arch - 1028
Trim (All)- 48
Column - 152
