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.
Have you ever wanted clean, contemporary, decent looking stairs which The Sims 3 so happens to lack drastically? Well you're in luck! I've taken it upon myself to create this set of 4 new stairs for the game. It comes equipped with a modified version of the "Fun Fence", the only difference being it doesn't repeat the pole every square, now it only places it at either ends (see the picture)

(12.12.09) PLUS there is a new stair type, Ghost, check it out below!
That's not all! I've also fixed the 'flicker' issue when you zoom out. I wasn't aware of this until others reported it to me, but not to worry, it's all gone now!

(16.12.09) PLUS thanks to Delphy's Blue Lot Object Fixer I've run through all my packages and found that Object Cloner made some incorrect renumber which may have cause some of you the Blue Lot error, please redownload these as they are now fixed and no longer cause this problem


Click the buttons below to see the details about all five stairs and the railings.

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.

I installed these with all the EP's and SP's up until Town Life (except Late Night) and they are there. But all the others are not. Is that normal? Are they supposed to replace the other stairs?

Thanks! I love using this stairs, however I just wanted to ask if anyone else has the issue of only wanting to place less than four stairs (e.g. one step) and finding the stairs go invisible?
