This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi everyone. Tonight I bring you something that was requested by plasticbox, namely three Maxis modular stairs (Wooden, Steadfast and Chic) that are open underneath. Hope you like them. Enjoy!

Base game compatible, were tested with Basegame Starter Pro by Numenor.


!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the files 2008_CrocobauraChicModularStairs.txt; 2009_CrocobauraWoodenModularStairs.txt; 2010_CrocobauraSteadfastModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium or you need to copy the text inside each at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts


Polygon Counts:
Less than Maxis'

Additional Credits:
Maxis for the meshes and textures
Made with Wings3D, SimPE, UVMapper

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Hi
Love the stairs ....but I have been trying for the last 2 days to get them to show up in the game. I have double deluxe sims 2. I place eveything in the right folders I think but they never show up in build mode. I see them at the start of the game with other custom content. This is the path I take for the text C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts. I have a base folder, EP folder and a SP4 folder that all lead to scripts.....help please!

Not a smiley. "nab" is a word, a verb. It means to acquire, take, grab, obtain, etc. It is four characters too short for the minimum message limit of seven characters, though, so I surround it with four colons, and the editor accepts it. It means that I downloaded the upload. `K?

You need to put the mesh in the downloads folder.

I cannot get the stairs to show up in the game. I've tried over 7 times. I go to C:/programfiles/EAgames/TheSims2/TSData/res/catalog/scripts/modularstairs text document and copy and paste the 2008 , 2009, 2010 text files at the very bottom of the modularstairs text document, and I put the .package files in my EA games downloads folder. But it still won't show up under build mode in the staircase sections. Can someone help me? Can you explain to me step by step. Lol. Thanks so much

I'm having the same exact problem! I've uninstalled and reinstalled them at least three times.

Okay, Scratch that. I used Scriptorium and put the text files (not the packages) into the proper folder. I (however) didn't understand they would show up as two DIFFERENT stairs, but they are there and that's all I care about!
