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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hello everyone. Today I bring you two additional tall privacy fences, in white and brown colour, and a matching gate. The gate also comes in green colour to match the fence I posted a few days ago. Hope you like them. Enjoy!

Darn, downloads are down. I'll be back to get this! I love it, croco! I always thought the Maxis fences were more for a front garden fanciness than to keep anything in... or out!

They look really cool but for some reason the downloads aren't working even though it says they're all back online now.

These are nice! I'm happy to see some new colours. Another job well done!

Finally, tall white picket fences. These are the ones I always saw being painted in TV shows like the Little Rascals. I was but a child when these were on TV, and that's the story I'm sticking with. ;0)

Let me know if you use any of my recolors in a story, video, etc. I'd like to see it!

Thanks Crocobaura! These are great!

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

The fences look like normal maxis fences in game, only they have the little white star on them. Also, I think you need at least an expansion pack for fences to show up, so if you only have base game, I'm not 100 % sure that they will.

Well, these worked fine for me before I installed seasons but then caused my game to crash. I removed all my hacks and downloads and tested these fences and each time when trying to place them the game crashes. I tried redownloading them with the same effect.

The client also crashed if you used a maxis fence with these fences in the downloads. After removing them (and all other userfiles still out) the fences/fence tool worked fine. Other custom fences still work. Hope this can be fixed, as they really were my favorite before hand

Hello, just tested them and they work fine in my game. Have no idea what could be causing your game to crash.

It's not always easy to find fences AND matching gates, and the original inspiration for this taller version is a well-used one on some of my lots. Thank you!
