This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Next on my roster of Maxis window/door recolors: The Breeze-Easy Window. I use this one often because of its size; it fits perfectly above counters and it's neither too tall nor too wide to look nice in dormers. Plus, it's relatively cheap, so it works well for "starter" windows on a house that I will be playing (and therefore upgrading as I play the household), as opposed to building so that it looks pretty from the start. So here are the 20 colors, which are the usual suspects:

And here's a sample interior:
This is the Cayenne color, which is the one in my palette that pretty closely matches Maxis's dark wood, which has a definite reddish cast to it.

As always, the files are Compressorized and are all clearly named so that you can easily discard the colors you don't want. Also as always, I hope that you might find these useful.

I've always disliked the default colors for this window, but I like using it. Your recolors will give this window a new life in my game. Thanks.

Yay! I was worried you'd dropped off the face of the Sims and left your series' unfinished... I love all your stuff, been lurking for a while but this is the first I've commented. So, thanks!

Nice. Now I need to find the other recolors I have of this window, as I prefer to have a more complete set, like yours. I will probably use the breeze easy windows more now that I have more colors to choose from to match my game better. I was finding myself only using black and one brown recolor of this window.

You are trying to get me addicted to your stuff, aren't you?

So. And there I was making a window set slaved to the breeze-easy windows. Of course, I used the breeze-easy as they NEARLY match the JustaDoor. (Snuffles through iCads uploads looking for matching door recolour..........)

Thank you

@cheshirekat: Oh noez! My master plan is revealed! CK is on to me! Seriously, Yeah, I use this window a lot more now, too. I had (and still have) Piggi's recolors of it, but I found myself only using a couple colors from her set. Since I created my own palette...Well, I needed my own windows.

@leesester: A completer set? Yays! *happy dance!* The only thing I have that goes with this window is the same window on 2 tiles, which might or might not be yours; I can't remember. Whatever the case, I use it often and would love to have even more matching bits. I adore your Maxis window/door add-ons to bits. Can't build without them, really.

I have recolored the JustaDoor, the Walnut door, and the 4-Score door, which are pretty much the only Maxis interior doors that I personally use, if I'm not using something from a completer set. If it will help you somehow, I'll bump up the Justa recolors in my uploading priority. I just took pics of the Symmetric Poly-Whatever windows in preparation for uploading. I could do the interior doors next. (I was going to put the three of them in one upload.)

@Everyone else: As always, thanks for the comments, thanks, and downloads. I love it when people like and can use my stuff.
