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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Having read the latest creator's guidelines as well as Numenor's post on the base game compliant objects, I am not so sure if the set will work for those of you who do not have any expansion packs installed.
If you only have the base game and decide to download the set, please give me feedback.

You will aslo need the CEP.

Specs:
Door -single tile; recolourable glass ;the diagonal mesh is stretched to fit the width of the wall;
Polys:438; Vertices: 900

Pictureglasswindow- 1 tile; recolourable glass; the diagonal mesh is stretched to cover the width of the wall;
Polys:176 Vertices 196

One Tile Big Window -only the frame is recolourable; the diagonal mesh is stretched to cover the width of the wall;
Polys:400; Vertices: 540

Kitchen Window - only the frame is recolourable; the diagonal mesh is not stretched;
Polys: 400 Vertices:540

The meshes are made and edited with Milkshape.

The download file is a rar file. the package files are put in 2 separate folders.
Why do I call it a set? Because the items share the same colours (and patterns) for the frames and the glass. The sceenshots are from a residential lot, but I had OFB in mind when I created the pictureglass door and window.

Almost forgot: feel free to recolour and upload on free sites.
Enjoy

Edit: I read Ignorant Bliss' post on how to check if your packages are compliant with the original game. I am sorry to say that they are not. Numenor's post helped me remake the pictureglass door and window. Those of you who only have the base game and would like to have the picture glass door and window, please download the file the Pictureglass_OriginalGameOnly_macarossi_0107.rar

Ignorant Bliss and Numenor, thank you for teaching me how do this.
