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.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

All are updated now, so some can feature their NL-OFB properties like the similar default ones.


Fences:


1. Moi_FenceInvisibleMeshless-r
As its name says so, this is an invisible mesh-less custom fence compatible to the base game as well. No pic to show coz it's invisible!
This fence can be useful:
I. to act as invisible walls
II. to surround the swimming regions for terrain-paint-based swimming regions such ponds, lakes, etc...
III. shadowless because of its "mesh-less-ness" (so, the shadow shader can't act on it as well as there's no shadow subset )


2. 2-sided/doubly-sided budding fences:
2a. Moi_Fence_GenuineRailwayTieFencing-cc2sided
2b. Moi_Fence_ShortMortarWhiteBrickWall-cc2sided
2c. Moi_Fence_GenuineRailwayTieFencing-replacement-txmt
2d. Moi_Fence_ShortMortarWhiteBrickWall-replacement-txmt

They're doubly-sided budding fences. The former two are custom contents while the latter two are default replacements that will override the corresponding game default fences. The appearance of them are no different from the default one except their bottom-ful. In the pic, the sidings are done by the 2-sided budding fences while the central ones are thin and empty in the middle when the fences are highly inclined.

Why doubly-sided?
For some lot-builders, certain budding fences are essential for many build-features like aerial hanging wires, strings, cables, skylight frames, beams, etc.


3 Post-ful and Post-less fences:
3a. Moi_Fence_TornadoSolidSteel-ccPostless
A postless version of the Tornado Solid Steel Fence as a potential solution to this usage here
3b. Moi_Fence_Maxis_PostOnly.rar
A post only version for many Maxis TS2 fences.


4. Hybrid Fences
4a. Moi_Fence_WhiteRoyalCourtyardFencing-HighSocietyPillarPost-r
High Society Pillar column is used as the posts of the White Royal Courty Fence.
4b. Moi_Fence_InvisiBarrierFencing-columnQuaint-r
Quaint-column-posted Invisi Barrier Fencing
4c.
Moi_Fence_TornadoSolidSteel-columnQuaint-r
4d1. Moi_Fence_AncientGuardianRockWall-WhiteRoyalCourtyardPostFauxStone-r
FauxStone-Royal-Courtyard-posted Ancient Guardian Rock Wall
4d2. Moi_Fence_FauxStoneRoyalCourtyardPost-FauxStoneWall
FauxStone-Royal-Courtyard-posted Ancient Guardian Rock StoneWall
4d3. Moi_Fence_FauxStoneRoyalCourtyardPost-FauxGlassStoneWall
A glassy version!
4e.
Moi_Fence_ShortMortarWhiteBrickWall-WhiteRoyaCourtyardFencingPosts
As its name suggests, this fence is a mix of the stated fences.
4f. Moi_Fence_TombstoneFence
Use this tombstone fence to fence your sacred regions :D.



5. PhytoFences
5a. Moi_Fence_A-maze-ingHedge
Ever get bored making hedge bounding? Here's another way to do it... fence your house our new hedge fence... no need to pick them up one by one since then. No maintenance needed.
5b. Moi_Fence_WeedsFence
Miss the weeds?, here they come back while your sims won't panic and get crazy with them! At night, with some fence lights, they look pretty, damn right...
5c. Moi_Fence_treeBirchSingleLeafless
Leafless Birch Tree fences... not suggestable to make a lot unless you've got envious hardware supports.
5d. Moi_Fence_TreeBirch
The leaf-ful Birch Tree as fences...
5e. Moi_Fence_TreeBay
Bay tree fences...
5f. Moi_Fence_TreeBamboo
Bamboo tree makes good fencing, right?

Wow. So cool.

The invisible fence will really come in handy with Apartment Life! Thanks!

Safe Lava-pit
Niol, your Moi_FenceInvisibleMeshless-r works perfectly with ep0!

(I had to think a bit to mix it with TheJim07's Japanese style rocks fence.)

Your fence is invisible, so I had to "show" its use with those blue lines and I am guessing that my final pattern is correct. But it doesn't matter, because the sims take a wide birth of that lava, now!

Thank you!

(I might have unneeded inner-pieces, but what the heck.)
*** But my yellow-brick-Fence example looks dead-on, mates!

TigerSoundNet,

Thanks for your enjoyment.


Indeed, "invisible" means a trigonal mesh under the surface.
:P

Or, a completely meshless one may not be approachable.

Thanks for the screenshots, but I can't read forum attached graphics due to censorship, so only downloadable attachments are and pages are accessible to me.

Here you go, mate, hope you can access this zip file?

Btw I can adjust the Sims2 camera to virtually go anywhere.
*** Later, just took a look and it's pretty "invisible" down there, also.
