Updated 21/02/2021: set it so the object can't be stolen or repossessed.
Updated: made shiftable. Thanks Victor_tor!

The Sims 4 has a lot of diverse build styles, some of which we've never really had in the other games, and of particular interest to me are many of the essential southwestern build items. I've decided to adapt some of the key items over.

Adapt is the key word here - The Sims 4 has such a different art style that a straight up conversion wouldn't look too good. These beams are actually a brand new mesh - the first all-new mesh I've published - because the TS4 object they're based on isn't round, it's octagonal! With just a few more vertices this manages to look much rounder and softer and more like a log, perfect for casting artistic shadows on all your desert builds - and probably more, if you're creative.

It's also fully recolourable, with two channels, and it'll place multiple beams without needing to go back to the catalogue. They cost ?10 and can be found under Buy / Roof Decorations.

They'll snap to walls, but to place them on half-walls like in some of the preview images, you'll have to use moveobjects on.

Polygon Counts:
LOD0: 116 vertices
LOD1: 57 vertices
Shadow0: 66 vertices
Shadow1: 24 vertices
