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.
Okay well I have been attempting to make a couple of spiral Staircases in the past and they were either messed up within the mesh itself or the mesh was placed in the wrong position accodring to the staircase. I believe this is the best file I have created.... no?

Reasons it is better than my past files:

*No animations (your sims will step right in front of the bottom stair and teleport upstairs right in front of the stair going down.

*1 TILE!!! i wish it could be 4 and work but that didn't work out so well my first attemps, that will be next on the list.

*Well the mesh is just in general better, NO?

&&I will be making another one with a better mesh in some time to come. Someone else made the mesh so it actually looks great, I'm just going to trim it up a bit.&&

Well I hope you like, download, and or are "thankful" for it. ...dont ask me why I placed that in here...

Oh yes if anyone would like to edit, search further into, or make meshes of spiral staircases feel free to share your ideas as long as you give the smallest bit of credit to me. (As in "Well I made this entire thing but, XXHBPXX came up with the idea.")

**With my real name: XxHalfBloodPrincexX

Thank you

NO DOWNLOAD: You may download now I was having problems with the CEP file when I checked it so I just took out CEP...hope you don't mind maybe someone else can recolor it.

EDIT: CREDIT TO TARGA! For being the genius who first started this whole thing of less tiles and out with the animation! IF it were not for Targa this would not be here. Thank you Targa.

Hmmm ... for some reason, parts of the spiral staircase got mixed up with my Targa ascension elevator upload (they're both listed under the same item), and now I can't use either what I have of the spiral staircase (just the top and bottom tile!) OR the ascension elevator. I've never seen THAT before .... a download merging with another download and causing a glitch!

So I have to echo what another poster asked here ... did you need any expansions? I have just the base game ... maybe that's what caused the problem. (Though I see others with the base game did just fine. Maybe it's the combo of the base game AND using Targa's ascension elevator?) Oh, well. It was a good idea, anyway.

P.S. The good news is that deleting the spiral staircase file is very easy ... there's only one file. No more merging, though no more spiral staircase, either.

The mesh is really a very good job.
But as Gazania wrote, the spiral stairs use the same GUID like Targas first elevator. So if you have both in your download folder only one will show up in the game and usually the elevator "wins".
Maybe Halfbloodprince will fix it, I sent him/her a PM with the problem description.
For my game I did a workaround by getting new GUIDs for the stairs with SimPE.

Hi ya HBP, I have to tell you that these stairs are perfect, I love them and they make building house so much more fun. I have just filled a request to build a dorm of large magnatude and the person specifically requested YOUR stairs. I will be uploading the dorm today on www.SapphireSims2.com, but I wanted to post here and let you know first as the file will automatically go with the dorm.

I see that you want some recolors of this. I will give it a go & see what I can come up with. I think these stairs will be in my game for a very long time! Again, thank you so much ... 5 stars for you!

The stairs takes on the recolors of one of the maxis stairs making that stair unuseable... There really needs to be a fix on this.

Sweet. I downloaded a house, and I had to get this. =)
I don't usually like doing it... I don't see why people don't actually put it in the download itself?
