Updated: 1st Mar 2012 at 8:03 AM - Outdated - Original Files are now recolourable in Game
*Edit (2012-03-01): Both the Picket Fence and the Picket Gates are now CASTable in Game, therefore you do no longer need to download these recolours. If you have built a lot with these files included you may still download and use them for your game, they still work fine (playtested with game patched to

*Edit (2010-04-25): All files were checked with the newest update version ( - they still work fine in game and can be used both with the base game and also with the latest expansion pack "Luxury Accessoires", however, no expansion pack is required for these files. Please note that these files cannot be modified with the design tool in game (this option wasn't available when these files were uploaded in August 2009).

Many objects in build mode can't be changed. In game you'll find the picket fence and picket gate only in 3 colours: white, brown and dark brown ...

- not anymore! ...NEW: they're modifiable with the design tool!

With this download you'll be able to chose from 5 completely new colours of the picket fence. Two more wood-colours (pinewood and redwood), a light grey and two versions with a more wrecked look - a mossy-like and a rusty looking colour. The good news is: they don't replace the original colours of the "White (or not) Picket Fence" & "White (or not) Picket Gate" and they all show up in game with their own thumbnail pictures.

I didn't change the original price of 42$ for the picket fence and the 110$/180$ for the single/double picket gate, therefore you'll find all these recolours in build mode\fences (or build mode\gates) next to the original picket fence and/or picket gates.

Please note that these new colours won't automatically be included in your packaged lot if you export it from your game. The new fence colour package needs to be installed for showing up with your lot in game.

Enjoy your new coloured garden fences!
