2 hidden fences for the fence category - "Good Fence" & "Kosie Interior Fencing"

by Yogi-Tea Posted 1st Oct 2009 at 9:26 PM - Updated 1st Mar 2012 at 11:09 AM by Yogi-Tea : checked all files for compatibility with game version 11.0.84.014017

This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
*Edit (2012-03-01): All Files are still working fine in game - tested with game version 11.0.84.014017 - please choose the CASTable files for download.

*Edit (2010-04-29): All files were checked with the newest update version (3.2.6.005001) - they still work fine in game and can also be used with the latest expansion pack "Luxury Accessoires".

*Edit (2010-04-25): I made new clones of the ORIGINAL files for both fences. The patterns for the new clones had been changed by EA, however, they can be modified now with the create-a-style tool. Please see detailed pictures of the new "Good Fence" and "Kosie Interior Fencing" below (the overview picture shows only the old versions).

I found them more or less accidentally. It was when I wanted to create another set of linked stair recolours that I couldn't find a perfect match in the fence category. To make the stairs work well with auto-railing funktion enabled you need to link them not only with a matching railing but also with the fence (it's needed for the corners).

Now, I made two of those hidden fences available in the fence category and also added a few recolours which I think are important.

I cloned the original "Good Fence" and the original "Kosie Interior Fencing" so that the orignal file won't be replaced. If Maxis should ever provide an update or anything that makes those fences available in the fence category you'll only need to delete my clone of the original colour but still can keep the recolours.

The "Good Fence"
... is used for the corners of the "Stage Five Staircase" and looks exactly like the "Stage Five Railing". In the fence category there's only the "Static Fence" that looks a bit like that (see picture above) and it goes well with the stairs, however, compared with the "Good Fence" you'll notice a few details missing in the "Static Fence".
Recolours as uploaded in October 2009: original colour, black wood, white wood, mahogany.
Updated Original, April 2010: see picture below.


The "Kosie Interior Fencing"
... is used for the corners of the "Living Stair". There's a "Buena Cerca" fence that goes well with the stairs and also with the "Living Railing", however, if you want the fence look like the railing of the "Living Stair" you'll need to have the "Kosie Interior Fencing" which is currently not available in the fence category.
Recolours as uploaded in October 2009: original colour, black wood, mahogany, dark wood, redwood, white.
Updated Original, April 2010: see picture below.

I did not change the names or descriptions of the fences, I just added the colour name. The price is 20 $imoleons for the "Good Fence" and 30 $imoleons for the "Kosie Interior Fencing" - after having installed the packages you'll find them in build mode > fence category.

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

Enjoy the new fences and the recolours!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Yeah, Srikandi's stairs - they're looking great. To make a recolour of the fence that goes with her stairs I'd have to copy her texture - I'd never do that without permission. Even if I did so her stairs wouldn't be linked to that fence (in the corner parts of the stairs).

I am already working at some (linked) stair recolours that will fit to all the recolours in this upload. If you'd like to see Srikandi's stair colours included in this upcoming upload you may ask her - I wouldn't mind to make recolours for her stairs and to link everything together (I needed her personal permission to use her stairs for that) - the other option for you was to ask Srikandi to do a recolour for the new fence herself.

I will email her asap. I have to go to sleep first. Haha, thanks. I am sure she will say yes, but I agree that you mustnt use other people's stuff without asking. I even ask to use recoloured Maxis(EA) patterns when I upload homes, If i like a certain recolour in an upload.

Especcially thanks for thr Good Fence! I noticed yesterday that there wasn't a matching fance for the stair railing. It annoyed me. Now I don't have to be annoyed anymore. Thank you!

Thanks for this! I have had need for both of those fences in the past, spending considerable time checking my eyes to make sure I hadn't missed anything in the catalogue.

I have to agree with tomvanroosmalen that Srikandi's white recolour is very nice.

Awesome work!

after latest patch fences have been made recoulourable, yet these aren't. And the original stairs have had their texture adjusted so it doesn't look the same as the fence. is it at all possible to re-extract the fences to match the new stairs and allow recolouring?

edit: oh and thanks for the great item, ive used it in most of my houses.

Unfortunately I can not update any of my creations at the moment. I'm very busy at the moment and can not spend enough time at the computer to check all the files and/or to update S3OC and S3PE - sorry about that - I'll try to update everything as soon as possible.

As far as I remember there's no such "Good gates" in the game - at least none with this name, I think.
