Screened-In Porch Series: Mesh Windows and Doors

We all know I love windows, but sometimes inspiration doesn't strike. But when it does, boy does an idea come together. When i was making the Island Living addons, I came across the fly screen door and it was the perfect texture to inspire this set. This style has been highly requested, but as people know I need to want it for my game to have any chance of being made. With a texture in place and something I will use, the set was born. Now you can go forth and make screened in porches to your heart's content. 
What you need to know:
  • All textures are linked to the Short wall height window or door, so if you delete those, you will get the missing texture issue
  • Only in short and medium wall heights. I can't see this being used for tall walls, but just use a thick trim if thats your thing. 
  • When placing diagonal windows, they may (or will) revert to the first swatch colour. Once placed they should revert to the colour you have selected. Seems to be a game bug I cannot fix.

  6. This is great!! Thank you so much for creating and sharing with the community. I can never (and I do mean never) build anything without something of yours in it. I always look to your cc whenever EA's isn't cutting it. I really love the idea of the screened in look. I love to build screened in porches for my sims to sit it during milder weather. I may even use it for my greenhouse, even though in real life, it wouldn't make a bit of sense. You are very talented and the Sims community is lucky to have you creating for us. Thank you again.

  12. Custom Content is much better than EA! I remember when I hated CC and am now so confused why I did! Custom Content creators create thing that EA hasn't even thought of which I like!
