This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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.
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 MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This set was born from a WCIF for a simple fence with no posts, and a column that sat exactly in a corner that would work with all Maxis fences to hide the existing posts. While working on this set I realized that Maxis did not include a gate for the simple Wooden Fence or the green Arboreal Fence. This fence is almost (almost because there are less posts!) identical to the Wooden Fence and Arboreal Ascendancy Fence that came with the base game.
The set includes 8 colors: 3 Lightwood, 1 Worn Wood, 1 Distressed Wood, Maxis Wood, Maxis Green Wood, and 1 White.
The fence only has posts where you stop dragging instead of every tile, and it includes a diagonal. It comes in three Lightwood colors that match plasticbox's recolors of Numenor's Wood Deck Stairs. The Wood Fence and Green Arboreal match the Wood Stairs and Arboreal Stairs from the Base game. The white recolor is mine. The Worn Wood matches Numenor's Deck Stairs and the Distressed Wood matches plasticbox's Distressed Wood Deck Stair recolor. Please see credits for links to the stairs and recolors.
The gate comes in the same eight colors as the fence. The Maxis Wood color is in the MESH file and each recolor is separate vs. in the same package so that you may choose which you would like to keep. I chose the wood color as the main color since it also matches the plain wood fence by Maxis.
Updated June 7,2010 Added 2-tile Gate. This is slaved to the 1-tile gate so all recolors for the 1-tile will apply to the 2-tile.
The column is the full height of a wall and sits exactly in a corner. At least exactly in the spot to cover the post of all Maxis fences. It is slightly bigger than the original Uprite Column to cover completely the corner posts. It allows objects to intersect the footprint and sims may walk over them. One has the metal base and one doesn't. If you put two on top of each other it creates a 2-story column and there is no need for a floor tile to cover any gap.
The Stair Recolor
White recolor of Numenor's Wood Deck Stairs. You need to get the mesh here.
Thanks to plasticbox for the original WCIF.
The Lightwood and Distressed recolor textures are by plasticbox at MTS2, and they come from the recolors of Numenor's Wood Deck Stairs. I am very grateful that re-usage of the textures is allowed, as these are pretty much the only recolors I use in my game.
The Worn Wood texture comes from a recolor of Numenor's Wood Deck Stairs. Again thanks to Numenor for allowing usage of the textures.
You may clone the fence to recolor since this is the only way to recolor fences.
