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 thought that the edges of the wall to the floor was unpleasing to the eye. Therefore, I had to fix that with some sort of border. Since we know it is impossible to draw a fence where the walls, these fences are reversed and put as follows:



And a more descriptive guide:



In the diagonal version:
Left = Top
Right = Bottom

Left and right dragging rules apply. To delete the fences, don't place the fence tool where the mesh is, but where you've dragged the mesh from.

Notes:

The move_objects on cheat is needed to place objects where the fences are behind, since Maxis thinks there's a wall there blocking them from being placed.

Edit: Really stupid of me and hopefully quickly enough fixed--I've forgotten the 'sims can walk through' property, so now they're reuploaded with that.

Polygon Counts:
Type 1 has 12.
Type 2 has 24.
