This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I use these blinds quite a bit in my game and screenshots. Thought it was about time I shared my recolours with everyone here at MTS. 6 AL wood, 5 Malm & 10 Lack recolours, you can find more recolours by me HERE. I have included the MESH by TheNinthWave in the zip file, you can view the original upload by TheNinthWave HERE.

ETA: Many thanks to ScaryRob who suggested I mention that these blinds do not work on diagonal windows. However if you use 'moveObjects On' & 'SnapObectToGrid', it is possible to place them on a diagonal window.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Curtains. Price: §335.



Custom Content used in my screenshots: Maxis add-on: New ‘Function of Plate Glass’ windows and doors by moune999.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. The MESH and a colour chart is included in the zip file.

I have these reality-defying () blinds in my game and they're great, except I think you should mention in the description that they don't work on diagonal windows.
EDIT: They can be placed on the diagonal, by careful use of the moveobjects and snaptogrid cheats. See post #13 and #14, below.

These are my favorite go to window dressing. Now you and those who cooperated on this download are to be commended for another of the most necessary cc to have in downloads! Thanks. What is this I hear about not working diagonally? Surely that is fixable. Thanks!

I think that it is super neat that these blinds will fit ANY window, with only one mesh! Its shape-conforming nature is very, very impressive.

@ ScaryRob: Thanks, I had forgotten about that, I usually just use 'moveObjects On' & 'snapObjectsToGrid' to place them on diagonal windows.

@ sandya: Unfortunately I have no idea how to fix it, sorry.

OK, after trying it out some more I now see how they can be put on a diagonal using moveobjects and snaptogrid. One has to carefully sink them into the wall just a bit in order to make it appear as though they conform to the shape of the window.
Good deal.

@ KarenLorraine: You could always go into SimPE and change the price, personally I like things that cost §0.
