One thing I noticed while looking at the code is that it's in one line which makes it horrendous to try and edit it. Is there a way internally to change this code into something easier to read? For example:
Here we have the Wood and metal bed that some poor sim made from a metal end table. As the glass kept breaking, they made the glass top separately and previously. These bed bottoms will allow the placement of any of your existing mattress only mattresses of which I have a ton but they are all recolors of other peoples mattresses and therefor I didn't include a mattress on the bed. This mesh and the previous glass mesh is one I made myself but it was fashioned in somewhat the same manner as the annachibi beds, you will find in the Sims 4 Studio Studios. The end table, the bed stand and the dresser are already in your game and this wooden section comes with matching colors for those items. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have for some time now.
By the way, I found out you can stack as many of these items together without a placement problem, that's why the two pieces come separate. (I mean the glass piece and this wood and metal piece.)

I made this window to match the vertical and horizontal extended windows in the ParentHood Patch as I wanted a counter height window to match. I used the vertical mesh to create this so you will need the parenthood pack for this window to show in your game.
Just to let everyone know, tomorrow I will pull all the links on this page to the window as all will be removed from the cloud. I will create a studio page as promised and post the new links to the new windows there. I have to (well I really don't have to, but I will) also take some pics of the windows in action and make sure the names are a bit more user friendly so that nobody thinks "what the H did I download now?" When you get these windows, I only ask if you share, just to pause for a moment, think about me (or somebody you think might look like me) sitting there scratching his head and wondering "What do I need to do now to fix these windows?"
Also for future reference: I had a look at the footprint for that window before modifications. Ea has a value of 0.241 and -0.241 in the x values. I had noticed that a few days ago, when I was still struggling around with the first placement problem. No wonder everyone else has problems with cloning these windows!
Edit: Just for fun I had a look at the angle footprint and the value there is 0.354 and -0.354!

I do a good enough job of confusing myself, however, this seems to work, almost. Yeah, there is an almost. If the walls are 90 degrees, it works but if you happen to decide to make one wall straight and the other wall at a 45 degree angle then you cannot place the window in the corner on the straight wall without the MOO cheat. I thought maybe the other windows wouldn't work either but they do so perhaps this needs to be reduced to 0.4?
I'll play with this tomorrow as I am starting to see two windows where there is only one. After all this,I think I will make all my houses with just this window, to justify all this work. :P
Edit: I couldn't resist, I changed all the 0.425 and -0.425 to .400 and -0.400 and that did the trick. this window now works on all configurations. I'll play around some more with this window tomorrow and if all goes well I will create a studio page, upload some pics to my cloud as well as some windows and share for all to enjoy. There are a few windows that people have already made similar to this but most of them seem too bright or just not right and I was really trying to create something that looked as if EA made it, not that that is always a good thing.

Testing has revealed a problem. I am sure there is an easy fix for it but until it is fixed I will hold off releasing this for everyone. The problem is this: If I try to place the window in a corner, it will not place. The message is "Can't intersect with walls". Compared to the issues I've had so far I'm sure I can fix this.
Edit: I can get the window to place on diagonal walls in corners. So it's just a regular wall problem.
Edit: Not sure if this is a good idea or not but BB.moveobjects on will allow this window to be placed in the corner of a regular wall. It's not an acceptable solution so releasing this window will have to wait. If anyone really wants this window, and is willing to cheat to place it, the link is above.
Link removed, obsolete.
