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.

The picture shows posts on top of the railing, do they work to hold up roofs? I saw an arch in the "dinning" gazebo, do the posts allow you to add arches and doors to the fences?

I'am french, I don't speak very well english. To add arches or doors I use the cheat code "moveobjects on " to place it.
For the roofs, I place temporarily columns to build the roof then I delete them.
Did I answer your question?

These are very wonderful, Thank you very, very much. You are such a talented creator. My french is a bit rusty, but I hope you understood me alright.

Ceux-ci sont très magnifiques, Disent merci très, très beaucoup. Vous êtes un créateur si doué. Mon français est un peu rouillé, mais j'espère que vous m'avez compris d'accord.

Ah your a god! I don't know why Maxis didn't make fences like this. SO thank you very much for these!

You live in the real world. I live in a world of vampires and werewolves; were things go bump in the night. And you know what? I like it! My mom wanted a princess, she got me instead. When you here a wolf howl to the moon you shudder in fear, I howl back.

ah, brilliant idea Always such a pain to place columns on porches so that the roof appears properly supported -- you lose half the porch area to the columns.

I wanted to download, but you say it is not base game compatible but at the bottom in the download area you only have the base game logo, so is or is it not?
