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.
Hi all!

So lately I started playing TS3 again and I found an old hard drive that contained this little gem I made years ago and had completely forgotten about.
I always thought the half wall options we have in TS3 are limited so I made these these 6 BRAND NEW half walls.


1) The thumbnails for some of the walls might look a bit weird in-game. No idea why this is happening but don't worry this doesn't affect anything.
2) Most of these fences are mesh edits from a base game fence and one that came with Supernatural. ALL OF THEM ARE BASE GAME COMPATIBLE
3) Custom names and descriptions (did my best)

So yeah that's pretty much it! Go nuts with the new walls

Polygon Counts:
1.Grandma's "Privacy" Half Wall - 742
2.Grandma's Revised Victorial Half Wall - 720
3.Grandma's Victorian Half Wall - 678
4.Half Centurion Half Walls - 845
5.Perfectly Plank Half Wall - 124
6.Quaint Half Wall - 216

Additional Credits:

      Antique: Antique or Historical
      Ultra Modern
Maxis Flags:

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.

Great work! Any chance you could add the bottom post to the Grandma's walls where the top post is? They look a little precarious on the edge of the halfwall without the extra support beneath them.

Thank-you!! I have been needing more half walls in my life these days.

I've been trying to find as many cc half walls as possible to use as my interior walls. I got tired of playing with "cutaway" walls, but "walls up" mode makes it too difficult to see. So I've been using half walls when I want to see more wall to give me the best of both worlds. And these are great for that.

These look great! Is there any way you would be able to convert these to work in Sims 4 as well? :D

Not having a sig IS my sig. Oh wait, this is a sig, isn't it? Nevermind...

Thanks; I've always wanted more half walls for TS3, as we had in TS2. Never understood why EA didn't give us any "open top" versions such as these.
