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.
Here's a new door mesh that I hope you guys will like. I'm calling it the Double Swing because it animates both doors at the same time when your Sim approaches to pass through.
Seriously, what's the point of having a double door if the game only lets you use half of it at a time?
These doors are slaved to the Matte N Glass Front Door, and will take any recolors of that basegame door. There are two recolorable subsets - 'surfaces' and glass. You MUST have The CEP installed for recolors of the glass to show in your game. In celebration of Numenor making the glass recolorable, I have included a few new glass recolors in a separate file on the download page. I also recommend Michelle's recolors , which I use quite a bit in my builds. (*the "metal" glass color in picture below is actually "Blue")
These doors are also placeable on diagonal walls.
I owe leefish a huge debt of gratitude for her generous help and guidance in getting the animations for this door to work. That, and all the cool doors and bookcases she's made over the years that inspired me to get 'under the hood'.
In-game price: 425
Catalog Location: BuildMode>BuildTools>Doors&Windows>Doors
Face Count: 744
Since this is a repositoried object, there are no textures in the object itself. All pictured doors in this post show EAxis textures with the exception of the glass recolors. These glass textures were made with GIMP and SimPE.
--Sometimes the Sim will walk through the door before it starts opening.
--Doors only open in one direction (North), no matter from which way your Sim approaches. Working on getting these animations split into CW and CCW separates to fix that.
