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.
I made 7 new mirrors as add-ons to my earlier pack .

The new pieces work seamlessly together, and with the earlier ones

The set contains these mirrors:



Names and prices:
Mirror wall tiny half - 5§
Mirror wall tiny - 30§
Mirror wall small half - 50§
Mirror wall small - 100§
Mirror counterheight half - 150§
Mirror counterheight to full wallheight half - 200§
Mirror full wall half - 250§

All of them can be found in decorations - mirrors. Each have one recolourable channel, the sides, and they all have one preset.


Mirror wall tiny half, Mirror wall tiny, Mirror wall small half and Mirror wall small can be moved up and down on the wall, if you have patched your game to at least 1.17.


Here are few examples on how you could use them:



Polygon Counts:
All mirrors have same polygon count.

High lod: 36/30
Low lod: 20/12

Additional Credits:
EA for mirror I cloned from
Milkshape, TSRW, Photoshop and Paint.NET for being programs I used to make these.

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 borked my game. :-/ I had to uninstall these and clear my cache to stop it from crashing. Which is a total shame, 'cause I thought they were really pretty. Just thought I should let you know that that can happen.

Is your game patched above the point where you can use shift-able mirrors?

They work great and I really love them, but there is one thing that annoys me: Some of them seem to have an ugly reflective-red backside instead of something simple like some black or dark gray or whatever. You can fix this manually using CaSt, but I think it would be a good idea to fix this by default.

Your default idea is nice but I don't have the workfiles on this pc, they were left on my old one, so no can do :/

If anyone finds this in sims3pack, please let me know. I'd very much appreciate it. I'm a Mac user so I can't download TSRW (.exe) or .package.

Great job Armiel! Looks real good!
