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.
So this Insta-Door (aka Mission) from the base game is my most used door. This door works equally well in country, contemporary or modern homes (not really ultra-modern), and is my most used door. I recently was building a home that needed a front door with glass, but the only EA door that remotely matched had ugly stencils in the "glass". So I made two doors to match that door, one with just glass in the upper pane and one with glass and mullions in the upper pane.

Door with Mullions


Door with Glass


*Windows shown are my Country Window Add-ons

Details
  • Build / Doors
  • §135
  • 4 Channels

Polygon Counts:
Glass - 836/354 (lower than EA)
Mullions - 940/408 (only slightly higher than EA)

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

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.

These are fantastic HL - perfect quality and incredibly handy, as those more industrial doors (with mullions) that shipped with Ambitions just look too harsh for certain architectural styles. Thanks!

o.O I was thinking the pattern was part of the window, but now I see the pattern was in the background, on the wall. Goofy me, needs more coffee.

Thank you Lunie for another useable set, making my building just a little easier.

I'm not sure why I've never thanked for these. I adore them and use them all the time, especially for side doors. These are that special kind of CC that you can't imagine your game without.

Do these actually let in light like windows, or is the glass purely decorative?
