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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.


Description
Why? WHY!? Why did EA leave this out of the game? This has frustrated me since day one of The Sims 3, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, so that's exactly what I did, and of course shared with you guys . The half wall acts like an ordinary fence in The Sims 3, it is a fully Castable fence, so you will need to latest patches for your game if you don't own World Adventures (but please note: World Adventures is NOT required for this). The railing and wall itself are two seperate recolorable parts so you can make it match virtually any existing wall you have. It is also great with counters, it fits all the game ones perfectly so there is no chopping on anything of that nature . I guess that's all I need to tell you, enjoy!

(6.12.09) PLUS I brightened and re-sized the texture to fit very well with all patterns!

(24.12.09) PLUS I have run this package through Delphy's Blue Lot Fixer and patched up this package making sure it never causes any problems





Object Info
Item Name: Half Wall
Price: $35
Recolorable Channels: 2
Location:


Polygon Counts:
Faces: 198
Vertices: 350

Required:
Patch 1.7.9 OR World Adventures 2.2.8


Update
Sorry to keep flip-flopping on you guys, but I'm back to using the .package file for this content, but please do note that a .sims3pack version of this is available at my website
(thesimsupply.com).

Even though I'm back to .package it is the exact same content, just with a different in game thumbnail, it does the same thing and looks exactly the same, so don't be afraid

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.

Thank you so much!

I use half-walls and stages often in TS2, and so I was incredibly disappointed that they weren't included in TS3. I am so glad that you created this! :D

You are truly awesome. I mean it.

Know what else has been driving me crazy though? How there's no "stage" in The Sims 3 similar to what was in The Sims 2. I'm going insane.

*Cough* Something to think about... *Cough*

Hi i think this is a really great idea, but i thought i'd let you know it created blue lots in my game. I know it said you ran it through delphy's blue lot fixer but i checked all my files and this seems to be the one causing the problem, is it possible i've gotten hold of an old version?

So please, please just answer me, it is possible patchirati game that is not original or is it mission impossible !????!! and excellent work, really excellent! but unfortunately because of the patch I can't use it in the game.

Would it be possible to make the front and back of this separately recolorable? That would be the bee's knees.

#218 Old 28th Jan 2010 at 3:49 PM
I think I love you ... but not in a creepy way ... lol
Would you believe that the absence of half walls was one of my reasons for abandoning TS3 for months (until more CC became available & modders figured out how to make sims less fugly, etc).
Thank you - Thank you - Thank you

Thank you very much. But this wall, acting as a fence, also means you can't build on top of it, right?
I mean, you can't make a one-and-a-half-story building from this and put a roof on top of it, right?

Of course they didn't add it.

Then no one would buy the "Sims 3 Half Wall stuff pack"

No, u can't haz cheezburger
