This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Our Story

You may know two users, tomvanroosmalen and VoiceIHear. Well, after some decision making, we have decided to team up and bring you meshes. Thats right, the Home Builder(tomvanroosmalen) is finally going to learn how to mesh. Anyway, for our first upload, we decided to do one of tomvanroosmalen's ideas - The Invisible Fence

Invisible Fence Set
So this is basically just an invisible fence, so therefore, can't be seen. I believe one was created for The Sims 2 as well, so this is my version.

I didn't realize it to start with but have you ever wanted your sims NOT to be able to go somewhere or access something? Of course this can be done... obviously, but only with horrible fences/walls that just end up defeating the purpose in the first place..
Then this fence will be perfect for you.

The fence is available in two versions..
  • the almost invisible fence; and
  • the completely invisible fence

The almost invisible fence, is quite that - almost invisible.
The fence has a tiny white line where it has been placed, this is if you'd rather know where it is. (eg. intending to remove it, temporary purposes, etc etc)

the second version;

the completely invisible fence is the one you can't see at all - and is probably the best for permanent solutions, (having no intentions of removing it)

NOTE - due to the complete invisibility of this fence, I have made the price 1 simolean, this hopefully should help indicate how many squares you have placed it on so far. I do still however reccomend using something for guidance just to know where it's going, what parts have been done, etc etc. (eg, terrain paints, adjacent fences, etc) We also advise this version not to be used in uploads, because if a downloader wishes to edit a lot, it could get in the way, without them knowing what it is.

  • enclosing a pool that was only wanted for decorative use (this idea was the inspiration of this upload)
  • creating an enclosed, but open, yard.
  • closing off areas, indoors and out.
  • for those sim muderers, makes a good enclosure for killing sims - without looking suspicious. ... and this way you get the perfect view. .
be creative, it has alot of potential.

All items have been fully playtested, by both myself and tomvanroosmalen and both work perfectly in-game. (as seen in the screenshot below)

No sims were harmed in the making of this mesh

Invisible Fence: 1$
almost Invisible Fence: 2$

Can be found in:

You will notice that there is 3 different files for you to download. They are clearly labeled. There is a rar each for each Fence, and there is a rar with both, for your convenience

Happy Simming

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.
