Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
I didn't really expect the Mistral Staircase to be so popular, but I'm glad it is, because maybe it means my tastes are no so outre as I feared. Here's a matching sliding door to expand the theme:
This is intended primarily as an interior door, but works as an exterior as well, providing you don't mind the gap between the two glass panes. There's nothing fancy here, just a plain old sliding door with clean lines and transparent surfaces. It also works on diagonal walls.
Recolorable wood and glass, just like the stairs. This door was made using the same textures and material definitions used in the mistral stairs and fence. It is not repositoried because a few alterations were necessary to get the shadows in the right places. Also, you may notice in these pics that some of the glass colors look pale and chalky. I had trouble getting the lighting right while making these screenshots. It's the effect of too many lights and not a difference in color that make them look weird. They still match; I'm just a terrible photographer.
