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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Maxis Art Nouveau Modular Stairs from the Base Game now made recolorable. I like the style of these stairs, but they match almost nothing! So I have made them recolorable, and have included one black/metal recolor. The color also matches the Linear Eloquence Fence which was used as my inspiration color combo.

Also includes a fence and gate. The fence is a new clone (only way to recolor fences) but the original mesh is by nihilin as well as the gate mesh. You must have the gate mesh if you want my black gate recolor!! The fence by nihilin is optional.

Note: This allows passage under the first tile next to the wall, including placing a door. The sims will walk right through the base of the stairs.

*All should be base game compatible

ZIP includes:
* Stair mesh which will override (not overwrite) the original
* Fence mesh/recolor in black
* Gate recolor in black
* Template recolor - will show clown colors if placed in downloads folder
* Layered PSD Template

* Place in your downloads folder. There is no need for a script file since this is overriding the original steps.
* To remove and have the default non-recolorable stairs back just delete my file from your downloads folder.

To Use:
* Place stairs normally
* Use Recolor tool to recolor individual stairs - if having difficulty with 2nd step, go down one floor.

To Recolor:
* In Object Workshop, select Open, select my mesh, then select Recolor.

Polygon Counts:
Fence Rail/Diag Rail - 736
Fence Post - 408
Stairs - 94 (step only) -1496 (step w/two rails) These vary based on the step/rail combination used

Additional Credits:
Numenor for the original concept and execution of recolorable stairs.
nihilin for the Art Nouveau Fence and Gate.

So stylish. I love them, thanks.

May I ask WCIF that couch? That little snippet in the second screenshot is calling to me. Those walls & floors and that purple shrub are pretty, too.

Oh, yes! I like this recolor very much. Very elegant.
Please, I too would like to know where I can get my hands on the couch in the picture. The style is the same as my real life couch and I love the pattern of the upholstery.

Thank you,

Thanks so much, it boggles my mind how Maxis can put in 20or 30 castle wall murals but not bother to make a matching fence/gate,counters for the latest bar, etc.

Beautiful job! The black combination is perfect! TY

Wonderful idea. Thank you. It's always the "little things" that are so needed. Only wish they were "open underneath"- *hint, hint* someone? =)

I loved it at first sight, but I'm in love with it since first try.
It's great to have a modular stair which comes with an easy installing and already used it in my newest house. AWESOME :D

*now hunting down even more recolors :D*

Still struggling with CAW :x
