I'm working on recoloring a couple build pieces because I want a room to be all dark wood while keeping the exterior windows white. I was able to do the door easily but I'm not sure how/if you can recolor a window to be two different colors on each side. If anyone could help, I'd really appreciate it!

Hi, welcome to the forum! I've never worked on windows, and as it is said above some already have 2 colors by default. It would depend on the window you want to recolor and if it's mapped to have two or one color already.

I've never tried it, but I imagine it's possible since some of the game windows are already different colours on each side. Maybe take a look at one of those to see how it was done?
I guess I should've mentioned it, but my first thought was to check the two colored windows that already existed. It seems (at least from the ones I've looked at) that the window colors are determined with one image whereas doors have a file for each side. I could really only look at a couple two colored windows because for some reason my S4S gets slow very quickly and can't load more than a few rows of objects.
Unfortunately the only way to check would be to try colouring one and seeing what it looks like to try and find the border between the two sides. I'm not sure if you could use blender to see how the image wraps around the window mesh, but you could try that. Otherwise try using an existing two sided one? It's possible that windows with only one colour will just have the same image repeated on the two halves of the mesh, but I'm not sure.
