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.
Ok, so nothing earthshattering or spectacular, just a couple more basic windows made to fit above counter tops. This time I have taken the 1-tile Colonial and the 2-tile Colonial windows and shortened them so that they sit just above the backsplash on the counters.

The Perfect Window
$225
- Build > Windows


Ye Olde Window
$265
- Build > Windows


Polygon Counts:
1-Tile - 525
2-Tile - 1134

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.

You rock!
I'm not playing sims3, just some short sessions but it's good to collect the lovely new items you folks are creating for us, so when the game will be less boring I'm ready with all the cool CCs I may need. Thanks forever.

brilliant, I love your windows. I just used these in the taller version on my latest lot, wish I'd had these then. What I really needed was ones that go highr up the wall, or two storey ones but nobody seems to be doing them

Thanks for these

Yay Lunie! This is great news, so it is earth shattering. Builders will love you and erect a in-game memorial to you for this. Well at least, in my game. I truly appreciate this and am so thankful. You do "ROCK"!

Indeed! Thanks for these. Use to have a complete set of maxis matching windows/doors of this set in TS2. Can't wait to see it complete for TS3. I like to keep my windows in one style on a house AND I like my windows over counters.

Beyond awesome! Maxis never completes their sets, so I am very grateful for the talent of creators out there to complete the sets.

Thanks so much.

I always was amazed (no, not really) at the lack of foresight with Sims developers. Probably the reason so many people created Maxis Match items. And now? EA is taking up the mantle... they NEVER remember to round out their sets, either!

Thank you for helping to fill in the blanks!

Thanks, these are very nice. I think the shorter look is especially attractive on the two-tile version.

Always choose short hairstyles for your clothing models!
My Sims 1 stuff is still available, because some still play the original game.
