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 1-17-2021 WITH THE STRAIGHT SIDE OF THE STAIRCASES REMOVED FOR BETTER PLACEMENT AND TO FIX AN ISSUE WITH THE SHADOWS



Hello Again! This time I bring some new stairs for everyone to play with!

Years ago, when I first played Mansion & Garden, I was THRILLED to see such beautiful new staircase options (I'm a sucker for a beautiful entryway), but soon began to feel that there could be MORE. At the time, I was very new to modding, and meshing seemed a bridge too far; fast-forward to 2017 and I finally decided to cross that bridge!

For the most part, it went well, save for some very stretched textures, and with the help of the very kind mustluvcatz, not only were the textures fixed, but she repositoried the stairs for me, saving me a great deal of time and trouble. I was on my way to making a lovely set of stairs to share, and everything looked good.

And then Real Life got in the way, and I was unable to attend to them for some time.

Fast-forward again to 2020, and while I was working on another set of meshes, and learning more about how Blender works, I decided to look again at that first staircase, and realized that making the second one would be extremely easy.

So, I did just that, and now y'all get two new staircases to enjoy ^^.


The one on the left is "An Unforgettable Staircase", and the one on the right is "A Memorable Staircase"; both are slaved to the straight deco staircase.

Again, if you want to make recolors, you need to recolor the straight staircase.

Both staircases are 3,070 polys, so these are NOT low-poly items!!

Since these are cloned from the straight deco staircase, they do REQUIRE Mansion & Garden to work! (I put all the expansion and stuff packs as that is the setup I was using while making these).

They are both priced at 1,675 simoleons, and appear under Stairs in the catalog.
