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.
I really-really wanted a glassy door for kitchens, patios, balconies and such. I thought EA's "Mags' Door" would be great if it lost the stencil. But it is solid and has nothing to do with glass and my attempts to replace the middle part failed. So I did it the hard way. I cloned another door, that had glass, and replaced the whole mesh instead. This meant that a lot of new problems sprung up, like with the normals and messing up the boneassignments, I'm such an amateur at this... I placed wooden parts in the middle, and finally managed to make it work okay, I hope it will work for you.
Because it is cloned from a metal door, the defaults you will find with it will be metal, so you have to apply a wooden texture to it yourself. Choose horizontal textures, they look better for this door (I had to rotate the texturemap to fit the clone's map.)
Known issues: There are some odd shadowed parts that are visible in sunlight. It's because of the normals, I tried fixing them, this is the best I could do.
This door can be found in the catalog right next to "Mags' Door", it costs 270§.
Let me know if you have any problems with it.
