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.


Description
Why? WHY!? Why did EA leave this out of the game? This has frustrated me since day one of The Sims 3, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, so that's exactly what I did, and of course shared with you guys . The half wall acts like an ordinary fence in The Sims 3, it is a fully Castable fence, so you will need to latest patches for your game if you don't own World Adventures (but please note: World Adventures is NOT required for this). The railing and wall itself are two seperate recolorable parts so you can make it match virtually any existing wall you have. It is also great with counters, it fits all the game ones perfectly so there is no chopping on anything of that nature . I guess that's all I need to tell you, enjoy!

(6.12.09) PLUS I brightened and re-sized the texture to fit very well with all patterns!

(24.12.09) PLUS I have run this package through Delphy's Blue Lot Fixer and patched up this package making sure it never causes any problems





Object Info
Item Name: Half Wall
Price: $35
Recolorable Channels: 2
Location:


Polygon Counts:
Faces: 198
Vertices: 350

Required:
Patch 1.7.9 OR World Adventures 2.2.8


Update
Sorry to keep flip-flopping on you guys, but I'm back to using the .package file for this content, but please do note that a .sims3pack version of this is available at my website
(thesimsupply.com).

Even though I'm back to .package it is the exact same content, just with a different in game thumbnail, it does the same thing and looks exactly the same, so don't be afraid

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Sims 3
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
Half Wall.zip 154.1 KB 62,211 3rd Dec 2009
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.

Thanks Flabaliki, just what I've been looking for, it seems my .packages files are about to grow a little again, just when I said I didn't want any more of them. I guess I'll just have to be really picky about what I put in now. Build mode stuff, I can't resist

This makes me so happy. I was going to start looking for someone that was willing to try to make this after I couldn't find the file to work on myself. Now I don't have to and it makes me ecstatic!!!

I'm posting to make a statement, 1st, thank you for this, I've wished for them everytime I built a house.

2nd, I noticed that my click of the Thank You button was the 1st one!! I'm shocked, what's the matter with people, it's been downloaded 171 times but no one has the decency to even click a thank you button!! Come on people, if you can bother to download the least you can do is hit the button.

Rant ended! ♥

Woah, I can see how much you need this! 21 comments in an hour and a half :O.

Haha, CTNutmegger, I think thanks is broken atm, because all the thanks show up in my scorecard but not here XD.

I'm also working on a fix for the 'stretched' pattern on this wall, I don't know why but you can clearly see, on the bricks picture how they are fatter on the half wall, I'm trying to fix that as I type this :P

Thank you. I really don't understand why EA didn't include them. (Mhh, probably they want to put them in some EP)

@CTNutmegger: I don't think you are the first one, who thanked. Thanks aren't shown immediately here, possibly they are refreshed only every 30 minutes or so.
