I have cloned a bench (3 seats), and, have tried to change the material setting to enable that alpha effect. The linked tutorial use the old version S4S. I tried to follow the steps. I find out that my package has no field of "AlphaBlended". My first try is to add that field. But that is not the right solution. My second try is to clone it as a plant decoration. The alpha effect works in game. But I want this ivy be a bench. My third try is to compare the setting of Model LOD 00000000 and Model 0000000 of both packages. I found out that it does not need to add "AlphaBlended" but to add "AlphaMap". I have also changed numbers under "Double Sided" and "Alpha Mask Threshold". Now, it works in game. I am so exited! You are right. The error was not because of texture. Thanks for your kind feedback and useful hint!
One general question more: Under Warehouse/Model/Lods/Edit Items, why do the "HighDetail Flags" and "MediumDetail Flags" not have the buttom "Edit Items" of meshes?
The Model LOD 00000001 must be edited, too. ---- The medium mesh under Model have no edit path: If you open my package (in dropbox); open Model 00000000; Click Lods-Edit Items; There are the three mesh LOD from high to low. But the high and medium one have no "Edit Item" buttom.

The game uses alpha images when it makes shadows from the shadow LODs.
Please help other creators find Sims 4 Studio and receive the help you received by mentioning Sims 4 Studio with your downloads Please do not PM me with questions about projects or getting Studio to run on your computer. I do not answer these PMs.
Hi orangemittens, thanks for reply. The point is: I have cloned a 3-seats-bench to make this ivy and have added Alpha etc. to LOD 00000000, LOD 00000001 and Model 00000000. If I enlarge this item, I can see that its shadow in game is still roughly rectangular. I've made an other ivy, just cloned from the potted palm decoration (without adding anything in warehouse). This one has corresponding shadow -- One can see the shadow of leaves. Are the edit of shadow mesh material under Model LOD 00010000 to 00010002? That ivy decoration doesn't has those tabs. Why?
Do you know how to fix the shadow of my ivy-bench?
Hi MisterS , I have added a ivy loveseat, cloned from "Love is in the air love seat", non edit in warehouse. You are right, that bench has alpha settings of meshes. But the shadow meshes have no alpha. Thus, the shadow of that has also roughly shape -- like that of 3 seaters ivry bench. Actually, the middle part of wrought iron of "Love is in the air love seat" has no light through effect, too.
I really want to know, which shadow settings has that "potted plam". I've tried to look up the tree reference. But I don't get it yet.
