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.
***Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game, please redownload***


If you redownload the new files will overwrite the previous. Clear the cach-files for the new to work from start. It not, you had to restart the game for the new to work ok.



This is something I missed for a long time so therefore I made it for me. Perhaps someone else also can use it.
There are four items in the set and you find it in the decorative/sculpture section.

Sometimes you must use the moveobjects on to place the object.

Maxis stairs have a strange way for shadows so sometimes you can see a difference but that don't bother me so much.



The corners are adjusted to this stair and will not fit another. They are recolorable and you must adjust the color to fit the stair.

The corners are just decorative - sims can't walk them.

Costs:
Corner: 100$
InnerCorner: 110$
Round: 120$
InnerRound: 125$

Polygon Counts:
Corner: 166 vertices and 96 faces
Inner Corner: 217 vertices and 126 faces
Round: 485 vertices and 798 faces
Inner Round: 709 vertices andd 390 faces

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

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

You don't! You unpack it with WinRAR or 7-zip and then put the package-files in your package-folder. Please read the installiing instructions here on MTS.

*sigh* I didn't even know I needed these, but now I want them...

Thank you SO much for making these! They're gorgeous. I don't know yet what I'm going to throw out of my game to put these in, but I'll think of something... :lol

Edit: I realised the above sounds weird. My computer can't handle more than about 70 package files before it starts freezing. If I combine packages into one large one, the freezing stops because the game then crashes to the desktop...

...Sorry If this is a stupid question but I've never seen a .7z and I'm kinda confused on what to do with it. After putting it in my mods folder, I've exhausted my options. Anyone want to help me out?

Ah, modular stairs... how I have missed you. Huge thanks for creating/uploading them!

@Plumbobo+others: .7z are created using 7-zip, which is a file compression program similar to WinRAR. You don't NEED to get 7-zip (you can unzip the .7z files with WinRAR) but it's a nifty program. I, personally, keep WinRAR and 7-zip on my computers at all times. HTH!

This is a great addition, but I can't download a 7z file. What is this and why isn't it a rar like other items o this site? Just curious.

Found 7zip. Thanks!!

You can use these corners in the base game but the DV stairs are the only one that exactly fits the corners. If you use another stair there is a small distance between the corner and the stairs but that's not a big deal. Just try it!

You CAN use these corners with just the Base Game, but the corners will not fit the stairs as good as with the DV stair.

Thank you so much for these - I use them a lot as they are so versatile and look really good. I wonder if you will be making more versions for other stairs. That would be great.

Oh thank you so much. These will be perfect in my pavilion. Not being able to make diagonal stairs was killing me. But faking it is just as good. :-)
