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.

UPDATED!
3 December 2010: Please redownload the gates. They have been updated with properly functioning animations and can now be locked for OfB. I apologize for the inconvenience.

This is Part 6 of the Torrox Spanish/Southwestern Build Set – Fences and Borders.

No wrought iron set without a good, solid fence, right? So here’s one to match the staircases, railings and window bars of the Torrox Build Set. Also there’s a low plaster border that you can use either to line the flat roofs of your Spanish/Southwestern houses or to mark your pathways and flowerbeds.

WROUGHT IRON FENCES AND GATES:


Unfortunately fences aren’t recolorable, so there is a separate fence matching each of the metal texture recolors of the other Torrox objects. The two gates – a single and a double – are recolorable, though, and take their textures from the Torrox fake balcony/staircase in THIS THREAD.

IMPORTANT!
You must have the Torrox fake staircase/balcony in your game to make the gates work, and you must have the staircase/balcony recolors in your game to have recolors of the gates.

Please note that the gates have a medium poly count rather than a low one.


PLASTER BORDERS:


Borders aren’t recolorable, either, so there are four separate borders each matching one of the Torrox walls and plaster textures.


Catalogue placement:
Fences in Build Mode – Fences at 63 simoleons
Gates in Build Mode – Gates at 213 simoleons
Borders in Build Mode – Fences at 13 simoleons


Polygon Counts:
Fences – 592
Gates – 1244/2488
Borders – 120

I have all your sets, just wondering though the gate doesn't have any animations and you can't click on it to lock it or anything. Is this fixable?

Sim of something, thanks for pointing this out. I had completely forgotten that gates have joints that need to be attached to the mesh.

Both gates have now been updated, so they have proper animations and can be locked with OfB. Please redownload.
