This is a default override for the Fence & Gate of Farmington that I actually did quite some time ago. It's one of my favourites when I do larger mansion-style houses.

You can see the issue with the original fence in the image above. Since the posts are not designed to rotate or take into account the direction in which you are creating the fence, the inner posts look kind of odd when compared to adjacent sections. So, since there was an unused channel available, I reassigned the inner post areas to this fourth channel to allow the fence to look more...natural?...not sure that's the right word, but I can't think of another one right off. Look at the pictures for a comparison, and you should pretty much see what I mean.

You can now either have the fence posts match the walls and keep the border, have a new design altogether and keep the border, or you can make them solid to match the outline / cap or railing colours instead.

Important Notes:
The package file only contains the files necessary to implement the changes, and you will need to have the Outdoor Living stuff pack installed to be able to use these revisions.

The following resources from the original Farmington objects have been overridden and will conflict with any mod using the same ones:
Fence - CFEN, MODL, TXTCs, _XML, mask _IMG
Gate - OBJD, MODL, MLOD

You will almost certainly need to delete the compositorCache.package, especially if you've already used the fence before. Otherwise, these changes may not get picked up until you do. The fence should now have all 4 channels available for recolouring (instead of 3).

I also updated the Farmington Gate so that things would match up when used together.
