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.
Hello, lovelies. There is a sad lack of good aged/grungey/industrialish build items...
(huuuWHAT???? ADELE LIKES THAT STYLE?!!?!?? I HAD. NO. IDEA.)
...so here are a bunch!! Go forth and deck out your factories and loft-apartments.


Set includes 3 doors, 1 arch, 3 windows, 1 fence, 6 frame colors,
and 8 grime, 6 honeycomb, 6 mesh, 6 artsy/strands window-glass colors.
Oh, and they're all SHINY! Once again, I abuse the envCube property...

The set uses repository textures-- you must have the first door and the first window in your game for the rest of the set to work.

Also included is a collection file which has everything but the 6 fences (unfortunately, you can't add fencing to a collection)

Note about the first door: I cut the polycount from 4400 to what it is now-- this style of door just begs for a lot of polys, einz.
Just resist the urge to coat your lot with it and you should be fine.

EDIT 20-05-2009: Added wall cap. Found under general > misc.

Polygon Counts:
Window I: 560
Window II: 392
Window III: 388

Door I: frame: 396, door: 2832 (high-- I know, but not unreasonable for this level of detail)
Door II: frame: 396, door: 464
Door III: frame: 396, door: 560
Door IV: frame: 396, door: 764
Arch: 396

Fencing: diagonal: 132, rail: 116, post: 120

One thing I love about this set is there are some solid doors that are contemporary Almost all the contemporary doors I have (including a lot of downloads) have glass in em, and I refuse to use those for bathrooms and bedrooms!

So thanks for some great interior doors :

I have a question though. I notice all your objects are very realistic-looking in your pictures. what kind of video card do you have?


I have an Nvidia GeForce 6600. Pretty decent for most games-- I have to keep some settings on low in Oblivion (so heart-breaking!), but other than that, it serves me well, despite its age!

Aaaah, you know-- I think it might. I'm not an expert at making fences, but I think I've read on other custom fence download threads that you do need at least one EP. Sorry!

Adele, you are the mistress of grunge. No one does grunge better than you!

BTW, where can I get the linoleum that can be glimpsed in your screenshot. I don't have enough tired looking lino in my game

I love everything you make 'period!'

This is 'sort of' a request. Is it possible to make an End piece to your full window?
When using them, when it stops or intersects a wall, it cuts away (or makes the wall see thru) at that point.

"I must say, that this is in NO way a criticism of your work. I am not in the least bit qualified to do that."
"Please don't think it is!"

To add: your fence is absolutely amazing, I love the way you used it to overlap the floor edging.
Thank you again for this and all of your work.

and again, NOT criticizing.

I have build a new house only using your stuff, it's incredible, I love your style, the colours, everything... it looks so good in game!

An end-piece for the wonderful full-size-window would be great, I second that.

M0rgaine and ClicknPsycho: Bahahaa, great minds think alike. I had a 'cap' for the end of the windows, but had been struggling to make it placeable without using the moveobjects cheat, so I released the set without it. If I can't figure it out soonish, I'll just release it as it is now.

If anyone knows how to make objects placeable across already occupied tiles, I would greatly appreciate your help!
