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.
I'm not sure if these exist anywhere else, but I find them useful so I'm uploading them for the rest of you.

These are cloned from several Maxis fences. The only change is that the fence posts have been built up to look like support columns for a roof.

These are great for porches and gazebos where you want the look of columns with out giving up the space, as shown in the pic of the storybook porch.

Be aware that these offer no actual support for a roof or upper floor, so in some cases you may need to add columns to build a roof, then remove said columns.

Also, I have all EPs installed, and I'm unsure as to the EP Requirements for these. The Storybook Fences came with OFB, so they may require that EP. I think the other fences were in the base game, but with changes made in Nightlife, they may or may not require Nightlife and/or higher. For all I know, you might need Pets to use these. If anyone finds they can't use these, please post with a list of what you have installed. Thanx

EDIT: May be included with any lot uploaded to MTS2. May be cloned and altered in any way if final product shared on MTS2 and/or any other strictly free site. Credit and/or link is great but not required.

The fences that have been altered are listed and are grouped in rar files as follows. Poly counts are for fence posts only:
the Stone Cul-De-Sac Brick Fence
--polys: 158 / verts: 316

the Gelander Railing (Storybook set) - in the three original colors
--polys: 1198 / verts: 1524

the Wooden Fence and Arboreal Wooden Fence (simple wooden fence)
--polys: 136 / verts: 268

the PINEGULTCHER Rails (Similar to Wooden Fence but with extra rail) -in Cedar and in Light Pine
--polys: 252 / verts: 370

These are my first upload, though I may upload some other things I've made for myself. Obviously, credit to Maxis and all the creators of the programs that make creation possible, as well as to the makers of the tutorials that I learned from.
