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 just a round corner piece for the Federal Fence giving it a more inviting apperance.

The Federal Fence comes with Ambitions so you must have it!



Price: $ 40 and you find it among the statues in the buy - decoration- statues area.

The corner have three color channels, the same as the fence.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Finally nice to have this as I have blank-blankety-blanking about not being able to make round corners for fences. Something that I was hoping to find in the new expansion pack, but no luck. Anyway, thanks for your hard work and for sharing a great idea with all of us fellow Simmers.

You'd think curved fences would have gone right along with the new curved pools and fountains. I suppose it's a little more difficult to set up a variable-curve mesh for them as opposed to just a hole in the ground. Curved walls would be even cooler but I can understand that being a bigger issue in regards to furniture collision, windows or hanging things on the walls.

Oh, my gosh! Wow, thank you! I don't suppose you could do that for other fences, could you? Yeah, suppose not.

Either way, thank you, thank you, thank you! I love your work, really.

Oh, btw, where'd you find the shutters on the house? Those are wonderful shutters.

Thank you for yout comments, I appreciate it very much.

There are not many fences that are suitable to do with round corners.
The shutters, windows and doors are my own.

I'm having issues with the fence to match properly to the actual fence. The issue seems to be that the way the fence snaps to the grid. In order for the fence to be on the same grid row, there is now half a grid missing between the actual fence and the round fence. Obviously, this is not the way it's supposed to work. I've used the cheat to remove snapping to the grid, but this doesn't seem to work for fences...? Anyway, I love the idea but I can't seem to implement it properly and it makes me a really sad panda

EDIT
Haha, nevermind. I found the cheat that solved the problem

I totally love this fence. these corner sections are great! How did you get the fence to show up like that in your game? mine has a black backround behind the wrought iron and it wont go away.

Hmm... I have heard about the problem you describe, perhaps because the graphics settings and graphics cards.
Go into the CAST and change little on the hue setting for the wrought iron so the error disappear.

I hope it works.

Thank you so much for making this. I love anything that adapts fences, stairs and furniture to a curve. It makes things look so much better.

Hi I love this fencing but cannot seem to find the Straight part of the fence that matches it, i have Sims 3 base game and WA expansion pack but Federal fence is in neither of them! Is it part of a different expansion Pack?

beldareth...

I think that fence is a part of the Base Game so you must have it!

Edit:
I checked now and found that, unfortunately, you must have Ambition.
