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 is Part 3 of the Torrox Spanish/Southwestern Build Set – Windows accessories

It contains a collection of decorative architectural items that will allow you to customize your windows. There are four different kinds: Window bars, ledges/French balconies, shutters and support beams.

WINDOW BARS:



LEDGES AND FRENCH BALCONIES (with slots, so you can place your own lamps, plants and other deco objects on them):



SHUTTERS (open and closed versions):



All the objects above have diagonal versions. They place easily without any use of cheats. They can also be shifted up and down if you have Apartment Life installed AND the nifty little ‘Shiftable’ mod by Goggalor at MATY. Find it HERE. (Goggalor’s download contains shiftable mods for a number of objects. If you only want the one for these objects find the one called ‘shiftcurtain’ in the ZIP-file you download from MATY).

All the window accessories fit the Torrox windows. But if shifted up or down they can be made to fit almost all Maxis windows and a fair amount of custom ones, too.

IMPORTANT!
The window accessories are slaved to either the Torrox two-storey window (shutters and beams) or the Torrox fake staircase/balcony (bars and ledges/balconies) – both found in THIS THREAD, so you must have those two master objects in your game to make the window accessories work. See screenshots below of the window accessories recolors you get if you download the recolors for the two master objects.

Catalogue placement:
All in Decorative – Miscellaneous
Window bars at 213 simoleons
Ledges and French balconies at 214 simoleons
Shutters at 215 simoleons
Support beams at 216 simoleons


Polygon Counts:
Window bars, single – 816/880
Window bars, double – 1152/1216
Ledges/French balconies, single – 550
Ledges/French balconies, double – 954/970

I just wanted to let you know that most of my houses have Torrox components. They're neutral and not weird or flashy, and they're versatile. Love 'em!

These are so beautiful and unique, they should be converted to Sims 3 too. <3
Can't find anything similar to put in my mediterranean Sims 3 houses.

I love those shutters, they're exactly what I was looking for! Sadly, I can't seem to extract them from the archive. Whenever I try, I get an 'empty package' error message. Is there a way to update the existing packages, please?

I am a huge fan of your whole Torrox set, and use it frequently. I noticed a problem with the ledges, though. The metal parts don´t show up in the colors they are supposed to, but in strange gradients. Only when you zoom out the regular color shows up.

Here is an example:


Every ledge I looked at had the same issue. Different colors had different gradients, but not the original color. Any idea what went wrong there? Has the reason to do with ingame settings?
