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.
Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game

I received an inquiry about a single tile door, so I modified the EA's double sliding door. When I was at it, I also made a version with half glass and without glass.



The simple doors are suitable for tight spaces, such as toilets.
The door is still a "2-tile door. For that the sims should not go through the wall, it is useful to place an item in which they are not attending as shown in the picture. You have to use 'moveObjects on' for it.


All doors have four color channels and costs $ 295

Polygon Counts:
Full glass door: 364 vertices and 224 faces
Half glass door: 361 vertices and 233 faces
No glass door: 365 vertices and 235 faces

Additional Credits:
I want to thank EA for the game, the developers of the tools I use and the autors of tutorials

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.

This is great! Something I've really been needing. Do you think it's possible to make it an actual 1-tile door? Not that it's necessary, I'm just curious.

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.

northsim... Yes

whoden...
I've tried but fail to do so. I've removed some joints and edit the footprint without success, so no, at least I can't do it. Maybe someone more clever than me...

My kitchen has a sliding door like this Slides into a pocket in the wall.

And thanks for making a glass-free version -- means you can use it for bathrooms and bedrooms. I know Sims don't care, but I do!

We've been needing this for a long time for Sims 2 and Sims 3... glad I got it for S3 since it's the only one I play these days. The house I grew up in had several pocket doors and this is perfect!! Thank you so much

Lisen, I thought there was, but after posting about that I went into my game & checked it out. For some reason I thought the Tomb Passage door was a sliding one, but I was mistaken. That's why I went back & edited my post. Sorry for the confusion & thanks again for these doors. They work well as they are. :D

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...
