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.
08March2014 - Updated and made recolorable

This window had no diagonal originally, but you can get Michelle's set HERE, which includes a diagonal version. Enjoy!

I have included one recolor(Red) in the rar file with the mesh.

Found in Build Mode > Doors & Windows > Single Story Windows

Price: §274
Polys: 1068 (for a two-tile window)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Numenor extracted this wonderful window from the archives of game content. It was recently posted in his Maxis Lost & Found (MLF) #22 thread. It was basically a decorative object made to use originally in the Create-A-Sim studio.

I offered to create a new package for him so that this may appear properly in your Window buy Catalog view and yes, this is my very first cloned object - Yay! In my game's buy mode they're right next to Windkeeper's gorgeous Chinese windows. They have a unique GUID, so they should not overwrite any other files.

This was a fun project, though I think I have tweaked myself silly. It is EP-ready, created with the latest build of SimPE, and is fine with the base game as well…they look great,too.

The frame texture was not changed only the reflectivity. I wanted them to be distinguished from the other two-tile windows – I don’t care for the typical weathered aluminum and concrete look. The glass was given a soft, 'clear white' tint as a change from the usual blue loft tint. The picture below with a back view shows the shadows and 'sunlight' reflecting off the frames (seen best on the window second from right and at the far end). This window does not have a diagonal mesh (yet!) so it can only be used on straight walls, but it's a two-tile window and well worth the price at only §274.

We ask that you use this object for your own personal gaming experience. Please do not upload it in any packages or post it on any other sites. If you have any questions, I will try and check in to take care of your needs.

The blue wall color is Maxis’ ‘Oceans Depth’ from NL. The potted topiaries are also from Numenor and can be found with recolors in his MLF #18 thread – they require OFB. Thank you all for the opportunity to contribute back to the community. I hope you enjoy the window.

I thought of you in particular, when I did the glass color and I also checked your values for the smoke grey glass, too, so I would 'match'. You are my buddy in league on glass colors!

This is beautiful. I really like the white tint, since I'm pretty tired of blue windows, too. Great work! Thank you!

I love large windows. I am just finishing up a full-size, two-tile loft window, but I would be happy to attempt your request. Thank you for putting faith in my growing abilities.

If ever you visit TSR, I believe CycloneSue has an expandable window. You can make it any length you like. Of course there is a membership required, but you can browse at no expense. Also, while you are there, Windkeeper has the most amazing window sets to see. There are some free downloads at TSR, too, and I think they rotate the objects in and out of the free area.

*/me thinks of my design kit*
look in my profile under design kit. It allows many shapes, not just that 4x1 one

it doesn't exactly -almost- go to the top, and doesn't fit a sim's knee, but for that purpose there is still the cutout at m-sim-o.com, however the site is down.

Thank you, Fat D, I have been struggling with this monster of a window. I have the dimensions right, I think, but Milkshape is giving me problems. I hope that I can conquer this beast sometime soon.

The Swans, looped edging, and water lilies (extra large singles) are Windkeeper's gorgeous creations archived at TSR. The Columns belong to Solfal's Romantic Column set -> Here, also at TSR.

The "Stone in Grass" floor tiles are part of a set (colors) by guRl at AsteriskSims -> Here. I have used them quite a bit and there is a matching terraine, too.

Sorry, I should have listed those earlier.

Thanks. Shame they're subscription only downloads though, I've been trying to find ceiling-height collumbs for AGES!
Thanks anyway though.
