Okay, so I started tinkering around with T-Mog to make the door I requested, and I'm having some issues.

Basically, the door looks fine up close:



Then, the quality begins to degrade at medium zoom:



And, then at small zoom, it's just sickstomach:



Does anyone know what's happening here?

Did you have it automatically generate the smaller zooms? I'll admit I've never seen what you've got there, but maybe that's what it is...?

But hey! That first zoom looks great!

Well, what I did when I cloned the original Maxis Door was set it to generate sprites for all zooms. And, after that, I edited the large zooms, and to save time, scaled down and copy/pasted the large zoom ones onto the smaller zooms. Maybe I wasn't supposed to do that, perhaps? huh

A little further looking around suggests that this is pretty likely the case- you'll have to do all the zooms individually. It's that old speed/expense/quality thing: pick two, the third's always going to be undesirable.

Okay, I'll try that... When I have the time. LOL.

Okay, I finally got the door fixed. I don't know exactly what was messing the graphics up in the game, but I fiddled around with T-Mog some more, and I figured out a way to fix the door.

And, when I was done with the door, I modified one of Madoria's Federal Door matching windows to match the new door.

You can DL the set here: http://www.simblesseoblige.com/viewtopic.php?p=90172#90172.
