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 custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Funtango Fencing Set 2

I built the Funtango Fencing Sets so I would have a better variety of fencing to choose from when building and I thought I would share with all of you. I figured that I would add to my Maxis Mixes Collection with a cool new project – Funtango Fencing. What Funtango Fencing does is bring together some cool concrete styles that I created to match some of the Maxis Brick and Stone already in the game.

Set 2 of Funtango Fencing contains 18 fences – 6 Academia Brick/Stone Walls with Concrete Rails, 6 “Cul-de-Sac” Brick/Stone Fences, and 6 Mini-Pediment in Brick/Stone fences. Choose your favorite Maxis Brick/Stone, then download all three styles in one download, or download them all! Also, check out Funtango Fencing Set 1 – Patrician Balustrade & Mini-Pediment Collection for matching concrete-only fencing to enhance this set and future sets.

Hey all, thought I would request something new from you, the downloader. I love to see how my build sets are being used so I thought I would ask if you would post a link in the comments section to an in-game screenshot of how you’re using this content in your game and be sure to click the “Thanks” button!

File Details

Game Info
Funtango Fencing sets require a minimum of University* for the fencing to show up in the game as the meshes are NOT included and rely on the original EA/Maxis mesh. The fences were built with all expansions and stuff packs installed, then tested with Numenor’s AnyGameStarter. Funtango Fencing – Academia, Cul de Sac, and Mini-Pediment sets have been packaged according to their matching Maxis Brick or Stone wall for your convenience in selecting the exact sets you wish to download.

*Please note: Funtango Fencing Set 1, Academia, and Cul de Sac Fencing (only colors Brick & Metal, Brick Black, and Brick Coursing Grey) include the mesh and therefore require at least one expansion (doesn’t matter which) to show up in game. The remainder of Funtango Fencing requires University as stated above. Items with meshes included have a polygon count exactly as the original in-game mesh – the only changes made were to the GUID and textures.

Funtango Fencing Usage Policy
Please post in the comments section or private message me with any issues or problems you encounter while using Funtango Fencing in your game. As with all custom content, use at your own risk, I am not responsible for any lost data due to usage of any of my custom content. All content has been play-tested and show no problems with all expansions and stuff packs installed. Note to user: the matching brick/stone walls DO NOT come with Funtango Fencing packs. You may end up downloading a brick or stone fencing without a matching brick or stone wall because the matching walls/fencing mesh may have been included with another expansion that you do not have. Be sure to read over the collection details regarding expansion packs at the top of this page should you download something and not find its match/content in-game.

Funtango Fencing may be included in any lot you upload to any free site except the exchange so long as a link back to my page is provided along with the lot. Please do not distribute the fences on any sites unless you are uploading a lot – but feel free to share them by linking to my page from anywhere on the web. These fences can also be used in any movie or story you upload - no credits needed unless you feel the need or are asked.

Additional Credits:
I’d like to thank EA/Maxis for the meshes, Numenor and Quaxi for their tutorials on cloning/recoloring fences, Numenor again for his AnyGameStarter and CEP, HP and Delphy for assisting me via chat, the makers of SIMPE, and MTS2 owners and staff.

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

I really love Maxis match stuff so thanks for these.
I'm also a nit pick and would have liked them more if the textures had the bricks in the same size, on all three different versions of the fences, as the walls have.

Yah, same size bricks and stone would look a lot better between all three. I'm still gonna download these, though. Thank you!

I'm not sure if I understand this correctly, maybe I need more coffee =):

* the small pediment needs Uni, as it is an Uni mesh
* the larger two fences work with any EP

.. is this correct?

Also, where is the fencing set 1 that you're referring to? I can't find it in your profile -- I only see 2, 3 and 4.

Plasticbox: Looks like the staff only approved 2, 3, & 4. I am sure 1 will be approved sometime soon. As for the expansions, these colors: Brick & Metal, Brick Black, and Brick Coursing Grey in the Academia and Cul de Sac ONLY have the mesh included...the rest do not. You are correct, the mini-pediment will need University in all 6 rar files.

Thanks for the comments. I did try to get the brick all the same size but they wouldn't line up correctly and didn't look right that way either, if I figure something else out I will update them. Glad you like them.

Ah yes, #1 is still in the queue -- didn't think to look there. Looking forward =). Thanks for the clarification.

Re. the different brick sizes -- it does seem to be difficult to get fences to match a wall exactly. I have seen so many fences where it doesn't quite work out .. for all I know, the textures are applied in a completely different way and it's far from trivial to make them match.
