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.

Hi everyone, since I realized that the extra tall version of this fence is pretty popular around schools and warehouses and things, I decided to make it in case someone wanted it. Let me know how it works for you. Both the fence and the gate are included in the .rar file.

Amazing!

But the gate texture is kinda weird.


It's not like this in the low fence version. If you could fix this would be really great.

Thnxxx!

What exactly? Do you mean the fencing/chain links? Or the bars?

BTX

EDIT: Okay I did some gameplay and noticed what I think you mean. The alpha is a little high on the upper gate bar there and it's blending the fencing/chainlink with a little bit of the lower portion of the bar on the top of the gate. This is a problem that is different than the gate for the other fence, because they are totally different alphas (I couldn't just clone the other ones, because of the height difference it wouldn't look right) I don't really think it's that big of a deal though, you can't see it from a normal game play distance really, and if I fixed it, (which would be very easy) then 1000 or so people would have to redownload it, just for that alpha.

What you can do, is open the texture in SimPE and export the alpha channel, open it up in any paint program and just make the white bar at the top a little wider or shave some of the top of the links would work too, just make the links at the very tip top a solid white stripe. It would be easier for you to do that on a case by case basis I think than for me to redo everyones' when a lot won't care. You also could do a few recolours of the gate and fence and if you do your own alpha textures then you would make them perfect and they would be somewhat popular probably, if you did one in rusty tones, or flat steel/aluminum or whatever.

These are great ! Thanks for sharing! You might want to add that a expansion pack is needed for custom fences to work though .

I worship your creations and all the things you touch.

If I am to guess what MaximusPM means it's that the chain links are squished and not as square as the fence chains are.

Or he might mean that the hinges that holds the gate are both at the lower part of the gate and none at the top.

That's just my guesses.

Great stuff as usual BTX!
