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.

****Update****
There was an error with one of the diagonal windows.
Please redownload the Greenhouse doors and windows rar-file and overwrite the old ones.
Sorry for the mixup.



Hi all,

I apologize in advance for the humongousness of this set.
The objective here was to make a greenhouse that can be used in all versions of the game, Seasons or no.
At the same time, I wanted to make it as versatile as possible, making as many shapes as possible,
without actually going insane (which explains the lack of diagonals).

Tested in the basegame and in a version with all EP's.

To make a working greenhouse with these in Seasons, you *must* add the sun lamps,
otherwise your crops won't grow.

The set consists of windows, a door and a ton of seperate 'roof pieces'.
The roof pieces don't need a floor under them and can be placed on occupied tiles.
The only thing they need is the 'white grid', so for second or third stories, place some columns,
then the roof, then take the columns away again.



Important note:

This is a repository set. This means all textures come from two packages:
lethes_mesh_greenhousewindowA.package and lethes_mesh_roofpieceA.package
The other objects won't show up properly without them,
so do NOT delete these unless you want to get rid of the entire set!!



So what's in the package?

So how does it work?

Each roof piece fills one tile and I divided the levels into three 'tiers'.
Start off making the shape of your greenhouse in basic walls on the ground floor, and fill those with greenhouse windows.
On the second floor, place bottom tier roofpieces all round your greenhouse.
One tile inward, a second ring of middle tier roof pieces fits those seamlessly.
If necessary, continue this with the top tier pieces and, on the third floor, bottom tier pieces again.

Edit: Sorry guys, forgot the whole 'Seasons is annoying to build in' bit.

The roof pieces will not keep out snow or rain by themselves.
You still need to make your greenhouse rainproof with conventional methods, such as adding a floor on top. Something like moonlight muse's invisible floor would work well.



Extra's

The roof pieces come in an oak default frame, with recolours of the frame in dark wood, black iron, white wood and cherry wood.
Default glass is an old greenish tint, with orange and clear transparent recolours.

The windows and door come with the same frame and glass colours, plus twelve frosted and stained glass recolours.
Some glass recolours are designed specificly for certain window models, so may not work well on others.
