This is a CEP-Extra for the Longbranch Side Gate, allowing the metal hardware to be recolourable. This also recolours the 2-tile, Longbranch Front Gate, as it is slaved to the Side Gate.

We also have 18 Colorbond and 5 MALM recolours of the Base Game Longbranch Side-Gate and the Pinegultcher Wood Rail Fence. There are four recolors of the metal included: Old Brass, Pewter, Rust and Verdigris, in a separate file. In addition, three Maxis' missing fence colours to match the original gates, included in a separate file. As a bonus we have added an invisible gate and fence recolour.

Where to Install the CEP Files:

SimFused-CEP-Extra-LongbranchSideGate-PF.package - goes in:

SimFused-CEP-Extra-LongbranchSideGate.package and SimFused-CEP-Extra-LongbranchFrontGate.package - both go in:

Thank you for the wide color selection on this fence. It definitely gets used a lot! Also, very cool to make a CEP for the handles - I love the additional metal colors you two chose.

These are beautiful recolors!

I don't know how many years now it has annoyed me that the recolours of the gates didn't match anything! Thank you for these, I shall make far more use of these gates and all those matching fences now!

I love the Colorbond colors, too, especially the Windspray (grey) - so refreshing. There just is not enough grey recolors in the game - Thank you so much for these!
