Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Be sure to only download the version you need. The original version only works if you have a Servo's in your game. If not please download the NoEP version

If you want the version that tests for toddler's ability to walk please download ToddlerStairModToddlerOnlyUseIfTheyCanWalk it has both files within the zip.

Sorry adding the extra's has made this download a little confusing.


May 3, 2008: Updated the ToddlerStairModToddlerOnlyUseIfTheyCanWalk.zip the previous version tested all Sims ability to walk before they could use the stairs. I had to also as a test to be sure they are toddlers with the ability to walk. Other age Sims are not flagged in the game as having the ability to walk, so they were not able to use the stairs either.

I also had to do the same for the NoEP version...this version does test to make sure the toddlers can walk before the use the steps.

May 2, 2008: Added no ep version if you don't have Open for Business or higher please download the NoEP versions.

May 1, 2008 : Added version that tests to make sure toddlers have the ability to walk. If toddlers don't have the ability to walk the can't use the stairs. The zip file contains both stair types and file names are the same as my first version. Please only choose this or the other 2. If you've already installed the first version please overwrite those files.

I know lots of people have asked for this mod, for a very long time, and I finally got around to creating it.

There is a mod for regular and modular stairs. You really should download both.

When adding a new hack,I highly recommend that you check for conflicts with the Sims 2 Hack Conflict Detection Utility found Here under Sims 2 - Programs.


This has been tested with some EP's installed but I can not guarantee it will work with base game. If anyone could test with the base game and report back I'd really appreciate it.

I did test this with Life Stories and it works fine, so it should work with the base game.

Enjoy!

THIS IS FABULOUS!!!! One question, I don't think anybody else asked this, does this only work when they've learned to walk?

It should work even if they don't know how to walk...I didn't put code in to test for the walk ability. I personally didn't want it, but if it's important to others I could put it in.

I've never used Marvine's ladder so I can't really say.

This does work with his ladder but the toddler animations are at the angle of a regular stairway. There isn't a conflict with it as his doesn't use any global coding.

This is excellent! BTW, I don't have Freetime (I have Uni, Nightlife, and Seasons), and it works fine.

Thanks!

Pretty sad Ailias...I did study all the codes for both types of stairs and there is no option for the sims to fall down the stairs.

Maybe you could code one that has that option, but you'd also have to create the animation for it. There are several great tutorials for learning to code and for creating animations right here at MTS2.

Incredible! Without exaggeration you really are a mod-god, I have so many of your creations in game that if for some reason I could no longer use I would refuse to play the game. You make things so much easier, I really don't know why Maxis hasn't created even half the amazing objects and mods you have. Sincerely you've enriched my game play experience. This mod needs a star. A heartfelt thanks again.

I really wanted this, but for some reason when I tried it in my game last night, I continuously recieved object errors and it would not work. I wonder if this is because I have Sims 2 Deluxe edition?

LuckySven - What expansion packs do you have? Do you have any other stair mods? If you remove all CC except for Beck's toddler stair mod, does it still break? This info would help her debug.

Um...would you think about adding a version with that feature if I ask you pretty please? It would make it absolutely perfect for me. I love the idea of toddlers using stairs, but if they are going to walk down it only makes sense if they know how to walk first. Well, at least in my game. I know this doesn't matter to most people. :p
