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've always loved The Sentry gate that came with Nightlife, but was disappointed that it didn't quite match anything. The closest EA gave us was the short wrought iron fence. So I made two things to complete the set:

The Sentry Fence by WroughtCo
Found in the Build Mode > Misc > Fences category for 185.

The Sentry One-Tile by WroughtCo
Found in the Build Mode > Misc > Gates category for 190. It's the same price as the original gate, since I wanted them to show next to each other in the catalogue. Animations tested in-game.
Edit 2015.11.05: Now added a locking version. If you do not have OFB or later installed, please use the original instead.

Note:
Both the fence and gate are repositoried to the original EA gate, so Nightlife is required for the textures to show properly. Any recolors for the original gate will show up on the new one, but the fence needs to be cloned if you want it to match.

Polygon Counts:
Gate: 950
Fence: 408 (straight), 532 (diagonal), 158 (post)

Style: Antique Not Applicable
Maxis Flags: AddOn

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