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.
Ah! the Second Empire Architecture..beautiful in this game isn't it? A Bit Steep Mansard Roof, with its little Windows makes any roof better...
But have you ever wished that you could have just the windows...and not the roof piece?
Wish no more, it is here.

This is a Window Set, featuring 6 new Windows and their Diagonals, for a total of 12 files to add to your Downloads folder.
All Windows are Repository to A Bit Steep Mansard Roof, meaning they all grab their textures from it.
Just like A Bit Steep Mansard Roof does, they each have 2 Recolorable subsets.
Any Recolors of A Bit Steep Mansard Roof that you have, will gladly show up on these 6 new Windows.
To make your own Recolors? Just Recolor A Bit Steep Mansard Roof

This Set Includes :
Mansard Window-Standard : 200ยง
Mansard Window-Counter Height : 200ยง
Mansard Window-Tall : 250ยง
Mansard Window-Wider 2 Tiles : 400ยง
Mansard Window-Round Counter Height : 180ยง
Mansard Window-Round High : 180ยง

All Windows will show up in the catalogue, in Build Tools/Doors and Windows/Single Story Windows.
Just like any other one story window.

*Collection File *
I also included a Collection File, but mind you, this is not a custom Collection.
This is an edit of Maxis' SecondEmpire Collection, that adds my 6 new windows to the whole.
This will overwrite the original SecondEmpire found in your Collection folder.
*If you wish to keep Maxis' Collection file intact, back it up before putting mine in.*
