A room with a view. Or … a room with multiple view as you can choose between different windows. Different styles and variations. Small window, bigger ones, with open and/or closed vatistas, etc … Each in 7 colours of wood. 1 white and 6 shades from light brown to dark brown.
4 sets of windows :
a small one
a thin one
a big one
a square one
Each come with different variations :
open and/or closed vatistas ( the smaller window on the upper section of the window ) - combination of both
Make your choice between the Sunny version and the Moonlight version :D
Sunny : without the grid in the window
Moonlight : with the grid in the window
Exception of the thin ( 1x3 ) and the big ( 2x3 ) window because it takes the complete wall height, the 2 other ones are repositionable up to ¾ positions.
All these options make this set full of combinations for your house to have its own look !
We saw 13pumkin’s conversions ( from Pocci’s work for the Sims 3 ) and it inspired us to make ( at laaaaast ) windows ( the thing we planned for a long time but never did ) :)
The whole idea was to start from the ground ( to learn from the best ), to make new uv maps to get a good texture rendering, and to test all Maxis windows to see differences of behavior from one to another. Then, to add new windows to the original 4 …
We wanted plain windows, with AND without a grid, we wanted closed vatistas, we wanted to position them at different height. We used a different base object so the windows are repositionable, and added our usual 7 recolours of wooden texture. For once, that’s not the most important, but the huge work of doing different windows with small details that make the different : open, close, grid or not, etc.
These objects are new meshes, they don’t override anything, work fine in game, and the whole set is a modified version of the 13pumkin project :)

We totally forgot about the diagonal walls, it took us less than a day and we found a solution for windows on diagonal walls !
We battled, we fought, LODs were torn appart, Cutouts were burnt to the ground, walls were built but we won !
Let’s be honest, we are feeling a bit proud of such achievement. We didn’t change the base object we used, we didn’t cheat with anything and the windows won’t overlap on the foundations. It is all clean and neat. Everything is properly working. The 1x3 windows are working perfectly and we removed dust from our mathematic skills in the process ( who said it’s back to school time ? )
Bonus : our screenshots are basking in a beautiful sunlight !
