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!

THANK YOU!!!! It has always annoyed me to have to instruct my simmies to carry them up and down the stairs! Real toddlers can climb the stairs. Thank you for creating and sharing this with us >^.^<

Sweet! I do not have Free Time, so I'll try this tomorrow and let you know if it worked for me.

EDIT: Becks, do you have Numernor's base game starter and anygame starter? They're great for testing stuff with/without EPs.

EDIT 2: It works without Free Time. Both modular stairs and straight stairs. Awesome mods!

Default Will you take a request?
Rebecah, after seeing this mod I just had a thought/request.

Can you make a similar mod to let puppies & kittens use stairs as well? I know your specialty is toddlers but maybe you could do this too? If not, do you know of any other modders that work with pets in particular & could do it? It would be so great to have toddlers AND baby pets be able to use stairs by themselves. After all, they do learn how to in real life, right?

I can't say it enough...thank you for this mod!

Wow, thank you very much. That hack seems to be very useful.
I have FreeTime and of course I have to test your hack. Thx again.

OK. I've tested your mod in FreeTime and ... it works!
I have already downloaded your update and I hope it will be the same.
I am sure. Thank you very much again for your outstanding work.

Great mod, Rebecah! I don't have FT, so I'll see if I can test it for you. I'd also like to second the request for puppies and kittens if you're at all interested.

Amazing! Thankyou so much for creating this! It's so cool you took the time to add animation, when most of us would have just been happy to have the toddler teleport from top to bottom.

Rebecah, I'm going to d/l this and test it out in my game-base and NL-I hope and pray that it works in the game, because I've been among the many who have waited and hoped for so long to have someone or anyone to do a mod that makes the toddlers go up the stairs! With fingers crossed..
Right now I'm in the middle of installing every single family from all three hoods into Pleasantview, so it will be a couple of weeks before I can actually play it-but I'm going to have a house with a second floor for a family with a toddler just for this mod.

I don't know why EA didn't allow kittens and puppies to use the stairs it's just so cute.

For those requesting stairway use for kittens and puppies. I am trying to do this but it's a little off. Kittens and Puppies are not actually classified as a class, so it made it very difficult to find they are considered infants, I have made it so they recoginze and will use the stairs
