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.
Hello! I made this Invisible Parking Space because i hate that bar on the parking spaces. So, with this, you can make more beautiful garages :D
It does not overwrite the original one, you can use the 2 It's on the Vehicles section of Buy Mode.

Now it's only a simple line You can pickup AND delete it :D

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
InvisibleParkingSpace.rar 7.1 KB 15,276 22nd Aug 2009
Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

34 polys for a simple line? Shouldn't be more than 2 (or 10 if you want top and all sides)...

You should make a version that stands out a bit less. You know those cement burms they use in parking lots that pretty much just sit there on 2 pieces of rebar? You could make 2 3 versions of that, the full new burm, a broken/older burm, and a missing burm that's jsut the dark stain and broken rebar posts :D

Another way to do this would be to make it an oil stain, or a drip tray etc, which would fit in with the game environment and not be so striking. Just an idea.
