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.
The inspiration for this came when my friend, Twi, was making a house that included the AL deco roof parts. But the top didn't look right. She had added several awkward fence pieces to the top of it, because the original roof pieces looked too tall to put there. So I suggested adding half height versions. Of course, there was no such thing, so I made it for her! Hopefully you too will find some use out of them!

These are exactly half a wall height.

The textures for these are all linked to the original AL roof pieces, so it requires AL. But on the plus side, you get all the textures and whatever recolors you might have for the originals!

Polygon Counts:
Inner Corner: 138 poly
Outer Corner: 142 poly
Straight: 60 poly

My dear friend Twi.

would be dead useful when creating biuld in roof balconies, the regular roof tool is too clumsy and does not look so nice...just make a half wall and add this decos..

Well... I've seen on your profile page, that now you do have Mansion and Garden SP, so could you please do the same with M&G roof pieces? Pretty pretty please!
