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.
In the CAS screen there are many object, most of which duplicates of objects already in game. But these two objects, in my opinion, deserved to be made usable in game.

1) Large Loft Window: it's similar to the Loft window already available in the base game, but is a little larger and lower. Quite nice

2) Timber and Steel Column: it's a huge column, more than 2-story high (it peeks through the floor of the second story). I don't know how much it is usable in game, but I liked it very much, with its rough shape and materials...

Both objects work in the base game and in any other game configuratoni.

Lol! I don't mind That column has little use anyway, due to its size (the look is not bad however...)

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

I`m sorry about the thread necromancy, but I`d like to report a BUG in the column:
It is a MULTI-story column (TWO stories, to be exact), but it shows up in the catalog with the SINGLE-story columns. I still appreciate it being available, however. Thanks!

LOL for the "thread necromancy"
What you report is not really a "bug" (meaning an unwanted incorrect behaviour of the object), but it's rather due to the fact that Maxis never intended to release it as a buyable object, and therefore never checked carefully its catalog placement.

Moreover, this is an object extracted from the base game (it's part of the original CAS screen), and the base game does NOT have a "multi-storey columns" category in the catalog.

Thank you anyway for reporting and for your interest (in columns and necromancy)

You`re welcome.

I still think it`s a "bug", just on EA/Maxis`s part, not yours, but I understand why you say it isn`t.

...and on second thought, even kinda agree, a bit,...

...but not based on your definition of "bug", but rather on your "Moreover..." comment.

Thank you very much for making these! I love the window, I remember just the other day thinking how nice it would look in my sims' homes.
