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.
G'day All,

As requested by Rowey and others, a couple of escalators to add to your multistorey commercial properties. No animations or moving steps, just a new staircase mesh.

I have selected OFB only compatiblity because I'm not sure if they're a new edition or earlier, they've been cloned from the "Stare Stepper" staircase.

Poly Count:-
Original has 2990 faces, 4096 vertices.
With walls has 2554 faces, 3150 vertices.
Without walls has 2542 face, 3126 vertices.

The shadow in the pics under the free standing version has been fixed.

As usual, you may re-colour, distribute this file freely or do what you will with it, but no hosting on paysites, it must remain free.

These have been updated to minimize the graphic problem with the first attempt, polycount has been slightly reduced.
If you downloaded the first try, please re-download these and replace the original files. I apologise for any inconvenience.

Thanks to Rowey for his help and input.

Please post here if you have any issues.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
