View Full Version : Deco Driveway Gate Feedback
29th Jun 2010, 03:45 PM
I am currently working on a decorative gate for a driveway. What I need to know is how many squares/tiles is a driveway in Ts2 ? A picture of the gate is attached. Also feel free to point out any ways you think the gate can be improved?

I believe a driveway is 5 tiles wide. In Wings if you make a cube 1,1,1 it will fit one tile in game, this a full tile too so it will be partly in a wall if you place next to one. IMO Wings has more and easier to use features than Milkshape though, the only thing lacking is joint assignments. :)

Thanks-that information is very useful. I am only making this decorative as I am not sure how to go about cloning and expanding the in game white picket fence because the original gate would still have the joint assignments and animations while the rest of the gate would not and I am not sure that doing this would allow cars/vehicles of other types to go through

Well the gate is somewhat finished- I need to bring in the left side about half an inch or so so that it matches up with the regular fences. I also am planning to make a matching fence- since this does not exactly match the Maxis White Picket Fence. I am going to do both the gate and the fence in half height as well as the current height since shorter fences/gates look better with some houses. Since this is a kind of worn out grungy gate, I also want to do a gate that is leaning sideways so it can be propped against a wall. Any tips and pointers for things I have not noticed with this would be good, also possible links to worn out wood textures that are not planks or boards?
