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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Wow, I didn't expect to get one of my creations featured. This is just awesome! Thank you all for making it possible!

Just when I thought I had everything perfect, I fudged up. I saw that diagonal wall mask for the shuttered window was not closed all the way. So I fixed it, as of now, simply redownload the zip with FIXED in it and replace it in your downloads folder (or whichever subfolder you had it in.)

I'm back with my second Apartment Life completer set (first one here) and this time we'll go to the land of Bohemia, where everything is complete. Now, I was going to stop for a while so I can take a quick break from meshing, but I was asked by Emma if I could complete the Bohemian set. You know, the Emma Pescado follows around chanting "DEATH TO EMMA!" I obliged. Anywho, there are oodles of things I've got for you all. There is a brand new door, as seen in the photo above. There are two new arches, and 3 new windows. They all have functioning diagonals. They all use the repository technique, so all you have to do if you want to recolor the whole set is recolor the original windows and door. You can see more by clicking on the thumbnails at the end of this post.

Recolors found!
Awesims AKA "I Saw Drones" has made two recolors of the "Old World" window (except the shuttered one) in both black and white located here. Please thank them for giving the recolorists a head start!

MOAR recolors from I Saw Drones Here OMGSquee! Thank them more! :D

Same site :D
Thank you once again!

Mesh edits!

Di, from Di's Victorian Emporium has made mesh edits of the "Old World" windows located here! Go grab 'em!

Credit is not necessary for taking pictures with my objects/things/etc, although a little exposure is nice once in a while; however, if I do get to uploading sims, you must credit who my sim is, if you choose to use them as a model for your objects/clothes/etc. Feel free to improve my stuff; but if you do choose to improve or change-up my stuff, please tell me, I'd love to see what you did! And if you choose to upload it, by all means tell me.

Enjoy playing with them! :D

After a quick test of redownloading this myself, it appears that it may be your connection. I'd take it up in site issues if you are unable to download these.

Alright the attachment for the FIXED windows are no longer corrupted.

I'm so happy. I always hated the way those windows were so low you couldn't put curtains on them or anything.
Thank you!

I think these are grand and I've been using them A LOT since I first downloaded them. I was absolutely 100% satisfied with the set until today. The set is brilliant, yet not complete.

I was wondering whether you could add a one tile arched window in the middle of two tiles and a two tile arched window in the middle of three tiles? This would help me a lot and also add much to the completeness of my game.

And now that I'm already at it, some slightly shorter versions of these windows would be highly appreciated as well. One arched window has the length of 6 squares. Windows with the height of 5, 3 and 2 squares would be just awesome.

I'm sorry for having this many requests. If this bugs you in any way or if you simply don't have the time or the will, it's okay. But I would, in fact, REALLY appreciate it if you'd do it. I'd even be willing to send you some virtual, no, real cookies!

So, pretty please?

I will see what I can do, right now I am swamped with work and I am unable to create at the moment due to my computer burning out on me. This back up one can't really handle much except surfing the web. I'm going to keep your request in mind. In a few weeks I may have a new and hopefully better computer by then.
