I was recently asked on GoS by a user named samclairs if it would be possible for me to make a specific style of fence. Now, I've never made a fence before for TS2, but I said I'd give it a shot - and converted this fence by Leon B. on 3D Warehouse and set to tinkering about with it. What resulted was almost an entirely new mesh!
These fences are meant to stand up to Australia's tough climate, and thus are perfect for all sorts of applications while looking very stylish. I'm sure you'll find a use for it. To retexture, it's quite easy - no fussy mapping. I tried to make it as simple as possible for you.
This fence is around the same poly count as one of the more detailed fences, around 4000 polys and 1000 vertices per tile, but since fences only render when in view (did you know that?) it shouldn't impact gameplay.
This fence is cloned from the basegame cinderblock wall fence and does not support gates or lamps - I don't know why. I can't figure my way around it, but I have a solution! If you simply place a different fence in the gap where you want a gate, it will disappear from sight and only the gate will remain. As for lamps... it's a steel fence, maybe it's not really meant for that.
Here are all of the colours:
