Half-Walls?

Okay, okay (Sigh) ..... so does anyone know what happened to our half walls? What's EA's excuse for getting rid of those? Would it be possible for someone to maybe create a half-wall cheat or something? It would be very nice to have. Sorry to bother everyone, but alas, I have absolutely NO knowledge of modding or creating anything. I simply rely on the kindness of others. ;) Thank you for your help!

    I miss half walls too, I guess them giving us three different heights of overall wall *replaces* them. Unfortunately I don't want all my walls the same height :(

    i do too. i liked placing them when i created my bathroom, among other things. maybe they will add them in to one of the next patches. then again maybe that's asking to much from EA

    I love half walls and used them a lot, as far as I can remember they never come with a base game though. Unsure why.

    Hopefully we'll have them soon.

    I thought that The sims 3 base game came with half-walls. I may not be remembering what came from what pack.

    Yes half walls were really useful, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.

    I look forward to cc fences in the meantime (I'm sure half walls will eventually make their way back into the game in one way or another) because for me most of the fence styles aren't quite the right proportions to work in bathrooms, etc.

    There are things I miss but there are, from this person's count, 1010 more items between CAS & build/buy mode than sims 3 base game had...

    Also, I don't think we got sims 3 half walls in a pack, pretty sure they came in a game update at some point, but it wasn't in base game as shipped, pretty sure.

    EA did not get rid of the half walls!! When you are *in* the build mode - and the walls - there is a little "image" (for lack of a better term) OF half walls!! I was wondering why they would have taken those away myself. Now, unless this latest patch did away with them, the half walls WERE THERE the last time I was in build mode.


    Please - look again.

    I've never seen half walls in there and I just looked now and there still aren't half walls. From everything I've seen online there isn't the ability to have half walls in game yet.
    What area of the screen are we supposed to be able to see the little image of half walls...

    Hello MsPrissy88. I also looked for the half wall you mentioned that you saw, but I was unable to locate it. If they are there, and you have seen them, can you please tell us the specific steps to follow to find them. Thank you!

    I think someone has looked at the three wall heights and thinks one is a half wall at the moment we have to use fencing to simulate half walls.

    I made a thread about this the other week. I'm really missing half walls too. :/ They did suggest a few fence ideas to semi-solve the problem as well as some plain, no frame, windows. This was about as close as I could get to half walls that looks relevantly decent.

    Eh so i'm not just crazy then. Just joined the forums on the site, been playing since I was a wee lad. Sims 1 had some good times. But I played Sims 3 faithfully for years, I mean every single expansion. And I knew I had to give up some things when I moved to Sims 4 because obviously it's impossible to have 20 expansions rolled into one new game. But losing those half walls...it's like my kitchens are always incomplete now. I mean the amount of build/buy content that is missing is sort of hard to justify because of it being so new. I demand more clutter!

    There's way more (and better organized) clutter this time around, I have most the packs for 3 but got most of my clutter from the store. not the base game. I'm a big fan of clutter though, makes a house way more home-like...
    lol "a house is not a home without clutter" right?
    I do hope we get half walls at some point but it's still a pretty decent start, imo.

    That's awesome! I too love half walls both in the Sims and in real life. We used them when we put in a divider between our dining room and kitchen in my house, and I did this with the Sims3, but didn't know that they really do exist in the Sims4.

    Thanks!

    I still haven't seen half walls in the game or in anyone's house pictures.
    Pretty sure they don't exist yet.

    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.
