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.
So. I was working on something else ENTIRELY - and ended up building a school. I made a CFE fence stacking one fence on top of another, but I wasn't entirely happy with it - so I made my own fence.



Its my first ever fence (PROUD) and I hope it comes in handy for you. It has one color set - the redbrick and the blackrail, and fences can't be recolored - but you are welcome to clone the fence and make new colors.

The brick pillar is a bit thinner on my fence compared to the Maxis fence - see comparison shot - but they don't look silly together (IMO) and you can see that the gate cuts in a bit - but not as badly as on the Maxis one.

Lee made a fence! I think your thinner version of the brick pillar is much more appealing than the Maxis one, it always was a little too sturdy for my taste. Way to go!

My swollen downloads folder is starting to dislike you.
I, however, think you are the Cat's Pajamas.

Thank you all of you for your comments and thanks, I was unsure if this was really needed as we can CFE something together very similar to this quite nicely, but I wanted my fence on the very edge of the lot and all the building cheats were making my brain hurt.

*gasps*
This looks great!

I hadn't read your blurb entirely and initially thought you constructed the gate for a prison, although schools really aren't all that much different; hence they come with intimidating fences, enclosures and even metal detectors!
