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 download is part of the Medieval Creator Challenge

This is my second entry for the Medieval Challenge, and my first try in the Build section. This set includes 2 doors, an arch, and two windows. Made in 1.8.

Door 1

This door comes in 2 colors. It has four presets: two colors with the knocker, and two without the knocker. It is centered on two tiles costs 200.

Door 2

This door is the same as door 1, but it has a window with added high tech security. It also comes in two colors, has knockerless presets, and is centered on two tiles. Cost: 225.


This arch comes in 2 colors. It is centered on two tiles and costs 100.

Window 1

This window comes in two colors and centered on two tiles. Cost: 175.

Window 2

This this window comes in two colors and centered on one tile. Cost: 100.

Update:3-17-11 - Fixed wallmask in 1x1 window

Update:6-2-10 - Adjusted LITE resource on 1x1 window to allow more light.

Polygon Counts:
door1 = 396
door2 = 424
arch = 72
window 1 = 1034
window 2 = 932

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I have the same problem. This window crashes my game. I had to remove the package to recover my save game. I hope you can fix it

This is a problem that came to be when EA introduced the half wall. Thanks, EA! It has to do with the wall mask....from what I've read it can be fixed by saving the wall mask differently - but needs to be done by the creator as they have the files. I did some research when I ran across this problem - pretty wide-spread - and the creators are saying to let the object creator know if there is a problem.

So, cmomoney, check the web. It can be fixed by using DXT1-1bit alpha instead of DXT5, or at least that's what I remember. I've no idea what I'm talking about, though... just passing along the info! Hudy777 has that great set of modern windows - dozens and dozens - and was able to fix all of them except the 45 degree angle ones. Just mentioning as this might be a good source for you to get help at.

Just as an FYI - Huge Lunatic, ATS3, Dgandy, Einfach Simlisch, Simpossible (which I can no longer find their site) Sim Supply, 11 Dots, Madayas.... are all reporting problems. I don't know who has fixed theirs and who hasn't. I, too, love this set (and hate the idea of buying similar stuff from EA Store) so I'm hoping this info can help you fix these... :-)
