    @pbox I had to use a plugin for GIMP to option the files from S4S for editing. My computer derped out and I had to roll it back and after reinstalling that very same plugin it didn't seem to work for me anymore. Or maybe I was just doing it wrong the couple times I tried. *shrugs* :/ So, I haven't been able to recolor and edit things.

    You mean a DDS plugin? There are alternatives to that though, if it's gimp that is acting up .. save as something else and then convert with paint.net or Aorta or dxtbmp or whatever.

    Hi! Sorry I haven't been *here* in a while. The next time I'm in my game, I'll look again and see if what I saw were half walls, is still there. Sorry if I mislead you guys into thinking we still had them. (my bad) :\

    I was thinking about Half-walls. I wonder if it's possible to make them by recoloring the top half of the wall to be transparent. Like, say you wanted to use one of the paneled wallpapers and you just replace the paint at the top with transparent nothingness. I'm not sure if transparency works with walls but it might be a thing to try out. I'd do it myself but for some reason my .package plugin refuses to work .-. Someone, should try and let me know.

    I tried to make the top half of the wall transparent, as well, but it did not work. It showed up as black in the game. Maybe I also need to delete the normal map for it to work. Worth a try, anyway. Perhaps we can use the fence as a starting point, recoloring the bottom part to make it match walls. I use the Sims 4 Studio and it does not show fences in the wall recolor mode. Maybe they will add that to S4S some day. OR someone over at TSR using the Workshop software will start working on half walls.

    This I do for the fun of it.

    Redoing a fence seems like it might work pretty well. Hopefully we'll be able to do that soon, thanks for trying @Naydi :3

    I'm ashamed to admit this, but I still haven't figured out how to get but one size wall. :(

    @GalacticGal You mean how you can adjust the wall heights? If so then this should help
