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.
From time to time I get requests from friends who are fellow simmers to make things to use in their houses, and if it is something I can make then I usually do. However, I don't upload all the things I make as that would be a bit random, and usually I just send/give the creator a file to use in their house.

Anyway, I got a couple of requests that were almost in a theme, so here is a little "yard sale" of some of my requests.



The door is a remesh of the base game interior colonial door, and is base game compatible. It is a fabulously cheap 400 simoleons, and it is repository linked to the original door and so picks up any recolours you may have of that door in your downloads folder.



This is just the standard Double Open Me window on placed on 3 tiles and could not have been made without MaryLou's fabulous window templates which can be found HERE This window is repository linked to the NL window and so will pick up any recolours of the Open Me window you have in your downloads folder. PRICE 210 simoleons, requires NightLife EP



This is a repositioning of an original remesh by Windkeeper; her original window (which was a remesh of a Maxis original) can be found here. This is just a 2 tile version of that mesh and I have credited Windkeeper's work in the object. This window is repository linked to the NL window and so will pick up any recolours of the Open Me window you have in your downloads folder.
PRICE 180 simoleons, requires NightLife EP


FILES TO DOWNLOAD

There are 3 files - just the door, just the windows and both windows and doors, so you can pick what you want. You must place the diagonal and straight versions in your download folder to get the diagonals to work. ENJOY!

AVAILABLE RECOLOURS: by Smmi73 are HERE

Polygon Counts:
Double Colonial Door Straight & Diagonal = 772 polys
OpenMe Window Tall 2 tiles Straight & Diagonal = 872 polys
OpenMe Window 3 tiles Straight & Diagonal = 1240 polys

Additional Credits:
All the people in create who encourage me to make these things, Pixelhate for the fabulous weathered walls (used in the screenshots), the tutorial writers here on MTS2, SimPE, Windkeeper and Maxis for the original meshes and, of course, MTS2 for giving me a place to learn how to make and then share my stuff.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Leesester: Apparently the Colonial Double Door has no files inside the archive, according to a WinRAR error message that popped up.

But then files with the names "Double Colonial Door Straight" and "Double Colonial Door Diagonal" also appeared. So I'm not sure if that is a real error message or not.

Hi Kaila, I just checked - no messages popped up when downloading any of the rars - must be site gremlins I guess.... but thanks for flagging it up - better safe than sorry.

I really like your stuff. I am glad you are still making Sims2 stuff.
This is not a request just a hint really, did you ever think of making a set with the tall arched window that is I think from the base game, not sure since I started with Double Deluxe?
Thank you for all you have made.

@Wolfenblu - I am not sure which window you mean. If you mean the Lafenetre (the arched top one with and without shutters) then I made a couple of add-ons for that - and tbudgett (here on MTS) made a whole set of matching things.
