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.

Thanks, just what I need!

QUESTIONS:
1) Do these replace any Maxis stairs or are they additional stairs?
2) Do these use the texture repository method? If I have Maxis stair recolors, will these stairs be recolored too?

Hello.

1. You can put objects under them and sims can use them. I tested this with fridges and couches.
2. They do not replace Maxis stairs, as they have their own guids.
3. They don't use repository method.
4. If you want other models to be converted like these, please post the name of the stairs in this thread.

You put the files in the folder if you're using the scriptorium. Only if you manually edit the original modularstairs.txt file you need to copy the info from the files to it.

Wow! These are awesome!!!! I just hope I copy/paste the text files correctly, I installed one stair a long time ago... hope I remember how!!
The best is that you can actually place things under them that sims can use!!! I hope to see more of these!

Glad to see more of the Maxis stairs with the bottoms removed -- and I hope this means plasticbox is working on something new for upload.

Thanks crocobaura

Fabulous idea! Just the stairs I was looking for. I just hate all the space the maxis stairs take and I ended up using Targas one tile stairs...now I can go back to modular stairs.
THank you so much!
