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.
So. I was working on something else ENTIRELY - and ended up building a school. I made a CFE fence stacking one fence on top of another, but I wasn't entirely happy with it - so I made my own fence.

Its my first ever fence (PROUD) and I hope it comes in handy for you. It has one color set - the redbrick and the blackrail, and fences can't be recolored - but you are welcome to clone the fence and make new colors.

The brick pillar is a bit thinner on my fence compared to the Maxis fence - see comparison shot - but they don't look silly together (IMO) and you can see that the gate cuts in a bit - but not as badly as on the Maxis one.
