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.


UPDATED!
3 December 2010: Please redownload the gates. They have been updated with properly functioning animations and can now be locked for OfB. I apologize for the inconvenience.

This is Part 6 of the Torrox Spanish/Southwestern Build Set – Fences and Borders.

No wrought iron set without a good, solid fence, right? So here’s one to match the staircases, railings and window bars of the Torrox Build Set. Also there’s a low plaster border that you can use either to line the flat roofs of your Spanish/Southwestern houses or to mark your pathways and flowerbeds.

WROUGHT IRON FENCES AND GATES:


Unfortunately fences aren’t recolorable, so there is a separate fence matching each of the metal texture recolors of the other Torrox objects. The two gates – a single and a double – are recolorable, though, and take their textures from the Torrox fake balcony/staircase in THIS THREAD.

IMPORTANT!
You must have the Torrox fake staircase/balcony in your game to make the gates work, and you must have the staircase/balcony recolors in your game to have recolors of the gates.

Please note that the gates have a medium poly count rather than a low one.


PLASTER BORDERS:


Borders aren’t recolorable, either, so there are four separate borders each matching one of the Torrox walls and plaster textures.


Catalogue placement:
Fences in Build Mode – Fences at 63 simoleons
Gates in Build Mode – Gates at 213 simoleons
Borders in Build Mode – Fences at 13 simoleons


Polygon Counts:
Fences – 592
Gates – 1244/2488
Borders – 120
