Default Stop sims from walking through flower beds [solved]
Hi!
I have a lot that has quite a bit of landscaping with flower beds and stairs that go to different areas. Is there a way to keep sims from taking shortcuts through the bushes instead of following the sidewalk and using the stairs to get to these areas? I do have some borders going around some of these flower beds, I believe it's the monorail fencing (?) - the one people use for making the trellis roofs with the heather on top. They still ignore the borders and stairs and just go where they will.
Thanks for any help!

p.s. this is for a world with no store or custom content.

Yes, there is a mod or rather invisible fence CC that I've seen before. It's actually on MTS I think, so just go to the download second and search. I'd do it for you, but I'm a bit busy at the moment. If you haven't found it later and I am free, I'll take a look.

Grandelama made some flower bed fences that work like real fences: https://grandelamacreations.tumblr....urb-matching-my

If you're looking for a natural way to do this... it might be possible if you use some larger bushes or stack them. Otherwise use real fences. But I've never tried it myself.

I do know that in many of the Bridgeport lots, they use the "bush" fences? either short or tall. They always leave 1 block empty to prevent a close in. I hated it, so I closed it, then I found out sims can't rake the leaves that fall from trees in the enclosed area.

Thank you very much for the help. I shall experiment with real fences and not just those that are more like borders as I'm trying to keep this world cc free. Thanks again!

The little fence in this one works I think:

Thanks for the help - the shorter fences did the trick!
