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.

You might be thinking, It's not much...And you'd be right.
This is an easy edit, but will change the way you build, be sure of it!

How many times you've use the Great Divide fence between a crib and a twin bed, to keep baby from waking up sister? Plenty.
Or toddler, from waking up mom & dad...
Now you can do so without it even showing!
Of course, once put down, you won't see it...but it'll practice your memory.
How come I can't place this chair!!?? There's nothing in the w..Oh!...See? Good for your memory.

But this is not why I made this.
Someone asked in the Forums, how they'd go about adding a gate to a fence, on a apartment Lot yard.
That is impossible to do, as the game sees the gate as a door, and as a way out/in.
You'd get an invalide Lot...

Then came lauratje86 and her ingenious idea...an invisible fence.
Now with this Invisible fence, you will be able to enclosed and divide your apartment back yard, front yard...and nothing will show!
You won't even need a gate, because The great Divide is one of these fence that Sims ignores and walk over it as if it wasn't there.

Why can't I place this tree here??! There is nothi...Oh!, memory.

The Great Divide fence cost 5.
When I cloned it to recolor it, I ended up with a free fence, at 0.
Maxon came in and added a price line as I had no idea how..
So I am offering you 2 versions.
One for 0, and one for 5.
While you could have both in your game, I really don't see why you'd do this.
Make your choice.

This is a fence from Pets EP.

Credits goes to:

lauratje86 for the ingenious idea,
magicslippers for asking about it,
Maxon for fixing the price, and now I know how to do it
