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.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

here's another item to add variety to your building.
This arched fence allows you to build 'hallways' through gardens etc.

my thanks to Numenor, Tiggy, Delphy and the rest of the staff for their inspiration and help.

How it works

This does not work in the base game. You will need at least one ep!!
Doesn't matter which one. Maxis fixed fences so they can be cloned and remeshed.

Fences are pretty much like objects. Just unrar and put in your Downloads folder. You'll find them in Build items under 'Fences'

The rar file has four different fences, both with straight and diagonal versions.
You'll need to fiddle with the different pieces to get the effect you want.
Some bits WILL overlap. I don't personally mind this, so I didn't make four more versions to stop it from doing that


This is a build item, so you're allowed to use it in your houses and upload it with them. I do appreciate credit and a link to this thread.

Since it's necessary to clone these in order to recolour them, you're allowed to do so. However, you must give me credit for the mesh and a link to this thread. I literally spent months on it, so don't go claiming it as yours.

i'm afraid you will need to have an ep installed.
The fence won't show up if you only have the base game installed.

Oh! Oh! Oh! -snatches and vanishes in a puff of anime-style "makin tracks" dust- This will be perfect as the backdrop for all those damned "can't put the arch there.. wedding pics will have a bubble blower behind them" wedding pictures!

are you sure you're not timing out or something?
if it's going slow, you can try again later.

you seem to be on mostly at the busy times of the day (evenings in Europe)
try downloading at a different time of the day. I find mornings to be very 'calm', for instance.
Or wait till the holiday rush is over, which should be any day now :D
