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.
***Updated for Pets and patch and tested in game, please redownload***


If you redownload the new files will overwrite the previous. Clear the cach-files for the new to work from start. It not, you had to restart the game for the new to work ok.



This is something I missed for a long time so therefore I made it for me. Perhaps someone else also can use it.
There are four items in the set and you find it in the decorative/sculpture section.

Sometimes you must use the moveobjects on to place the object.

Maxis stairs have a strange way for shadows so sometimes you can see a difference but that don't bother me so much.



The corners are adjusted to this stair and will not fit another. They are recolorable and you must adjust the color to fit the stair.

The corners are just decorative - sims can't walk them.

Costs:
Corner: 100$
InnerCorner: 110$
Round: 120$
InnerRound: 125$

Polygon Counts:
Corner: 166 vertices and 96 faces
Inner Corner: 217 vertices and 126 faces
Round: 485 vertices and 798 faces
Inner Round: 709 vertices andd 390 faces

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

These are awesome! Thank you so much =)

There used to be a tree, Where we took our pretty things, We'd hook them by a thread, Golden egg lipstick and feathers, And watch the light shine through, I'm afraid to forget you, I am remembering you, You were sparkling - My brightest diamond

Wow, brilliant Never realized I needed these, but obviously I do! Love the way it lets you make elegant platforms and sunken areas too... stairs can do a lot more than serve as stairs with these.
