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.
This is a set of Cafe Shutters designed to fit particular windows. Each size has a slats-opened, and a slats-closed version.
I included a couple basic recolors and have attached a uvmap if anyone wants to recolor them better than I did
There isn't any automatic diagonal version, yet, but if you have the cheat boolprop allow45degreeangleofrotation true,
you can place them diagonally that way
It will be in with the curtains in your catalog - price ranges from 214 - 217

I absolutely love these. I have plantation shutters on my real windows (they go up all the way unlike your cafe ones) and have been waiting for a sims version. I see on your page you say do whatever people want to your stuff- does this apply to offering the meshes with recolors on free sites too?

love your shutters! what's great about it is that they can be attached to some maxis windows. it would be doubly great if u could also make them fit too for the other windows and also in full length size . . .

I was just thinking about creating shutters like this last night! But now I won't, I will download and use yours. Thank you - these are really good.

Pretty! I'm not going to download just right now, but I've filed a note in my brain [ I tend to uninstall CC when I first install new EPs, just to see the new stuff with less stuff cluttering it ] These will be awesome for a cafe.

Oh wow, I never thought about making this! These are great. Downloading now. Love them. WHat a good idea.

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, then what about an empty desk?

My stuff may be used in uploads if 1. Credit is given, 2. link to my page provided. Happy simming!

These are just brilliant! Thanks for sharing.

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

I love these! But I'll keep checking this thread and wait to see if eventually the automatic diagonal version gets added later. They really look great!

Great set, Khakidoo, very useful and simply beautyful. You're one of those loved creators here on MTS who work hard (with fun too!) and give us a present almost every day ... thank you forever! Kiss and ciao.

Thanks everybody and I want to let you all know that you can clone this mesh if you know how to do that stuff and rework it to fit other windows and stuff... I wish it was simpler to modify them for all the different windows - then I could just whip them out in a snap ... but as those of you who are familiar with the process know, it's a whole lot of constant click-click-clicking ... so if you have a favorite set of CC windows that you wish these would fit, feel free to rework the mesh to fit them...
Just please let me know where I can go get them , and maybe gimme a bit of credit

These are really much versatile than curtains & drapes...I would love to see more variation in window coverings, i.e. pleated, cellular shades...wish I had the talent. Thanx so much for these!
