Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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.
Unfortunately, the 2story windows in the game only work on straight walls, and there are only two sizes - two tiles and four tiles.
So here are some AddOns that give you more variety.
Diagonal versions for Maxis 2story windows
Adds diagonal windows to the original Maxis 2story windows. The incoming light is adjusted.
Linking the new diagonal window to the straight one makes it necessary to override (not overwrite!) a resource of the original windows.
Therefore, the original windows have the asterisk for custom content in the catalog, when you put the files into your Downloads folder.
As this also enables the Delete icon for the windows, it is highly recommended to put the files into the Bins directory of your Programm Folder.
The diagonals will still work, but there will be no asterisk and no Delete icon.
(This is not necessary for the Clone Templates and the Simnuts Windows.)
Place in Program Files: Cut and paste the .package file(s) into your appropriate Install folder:
Please, be aware that the Zecutine Square Vista Window comes with H&M Accessoires. The Lightpane and the Octothorp Atrium window are base game windows.
Clone Templates for 2story windows
This set brings you additional sizes for 2story windows, all for straight and diagonal walls, as a base to clone your own windows.
The incoming light is adjusted for all sizes. All Windows visible in Neighborhood view.
Each Window comes with three Recolors.
Diagonal versions for Simnuts 2story windows
As the Simnuts site is down, here are diagonal versions for the 8 Simnuts 2story windows (Louvre Collection, Golden Dreams, Italian Baroque, Versailles).
The original windows for straight walls by Simnuts are included. Additionally, you get 19 recolors.
