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.
Are your sims tired of looking at ugly floor edges? Are they going broke buying trim to hide them? Are their pretty houses ruined by the look of the floor edges showing through? Well, no more! Inspired by the ugly floor edges (and the need to make gifts for my Valentine's Day Blind Date at Garden of Shadows): 7 floor-edge-hiding fences.


Shown above in a weathered gray, my favorite.

Each fence is a separate file even though they're the same mesh. This is because you can't recolor fences- you have to clone them if you want a different texture. 6 of the textures are Maxis woods: White, black, light, medium, dark and cherry woods; the 7th is a weathered gray wood that I found on the internet ages ago. Each fence has a unique GUID from my block so they shouldn't ever conflict with any other download you have. There are NO gates for these fences as they aren't really meant to be used on the ground- the floor-edge-hiding part of the mesh will be buried in the ground. (See screenshot.) If you'd like that look, you can certainly use them on the ground! But they were made with foundations and floors in mind.

NOTE: Although Nightlife is marked as a required expansion, you really only need 1 expansion for these fences and any expansion will do. It doesn't have to be Nightlife.

Thanks go to Adele for her Liam fences. They were the real inspiration for these fences. I love her fences but they don't always fit into my building/decorating style.

Thanks! And you're welcome.

If anyone wants to clone them to make more, please do. Floor-edge-hiding ftw!

That deck picture is just PERFECT. Do you know where you got the column-on-a-stone-block column-type-thing?

ilikefishfood - & thank you!
Liv & sailfindragon - Thank you!
rachelaranya - Yes, I do know where I got those. They're mine, lol. I plan to upload them here but for right now you can get them here in the GOS Blind Date sharing thread. I made other things too, but there is a link for just the columns- you don't have to download everything I made.

Thanks again for the comments and you're welcome.

Love the wood and stone combo. Could you possibly make the fence seamless/continuing, with only end posts?
