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!

Rebecah, I have so many of your things. You make a lot of things that
are family oriented.
I'm just hoping that sims are better parents in sims 3.

This is something that maxis should have done in the first place.
Toddlers can go up stairs IRL, even if the crawl.

Thanks for all your hard work!

This did not work for me; I used the "only if they can walk" version, and all other age groups (child-elder) COULD NOT use stairs. I know that my game started working again when I removed this mod. I have University, Nightlife and Seasons.

You should be able to use the main file if you want your toddlers to be able to walk download the 3rd file listed, if it doesn't matter then get the first 2 files listed.

Wewt!

That is going to make life a lot easier at the Tot Ranch. xD

It looks a little awkward when they go up and down them, but hey, it's functional and it gets the job done. Why nit-pick, right?

Thanks. :3

Would it be possible, whenever you have the time, to make a version of this where toddlers who haven't learned to walk can crawl up and down stairs? I have a toddler who just looks too cute when she crawls and I can't bring myself to teach her to walk, strange as that probably sounds, but that means the stairs thing is an issue. XD Besides, real toddlers can use stairs before they can walk. Just a request if you ever feel like it

I'm sorry, but I'm just not clear on which one I need to download. I have NL, AL, OFB, UNIV and Seasons. I have a Servo (you mean the robot, right?) in one of my lots. I would like my toddlers to be able to go up and down spiral stairs. I saw your response to the AL question and you recommended downloading the one that works w/pets, but there isn't a download w/pets in the name. I would really like this in my game, but until I hear back from you I can't risk downloading the wrong file. You may PM or E-mail me/comment back here. Hope to hear soon!

Would you like your puppies and kittens to be able to use the stairs? If so I have a different version, and that one has the apartment ep version. Posted here
http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=283783

The version that does not have noep in the file name is the one that requires that you have the robot in your game. The first 2 files, unless you want only toddlers that are able to walk then choose the 3rd file.

i have always wanted my toddlers to climb stairs. What does it look like if the toddlers can't walk yet, because i'm always to lazy to teach them.

Why won't this work on the Apartment life curly stairs?
