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.
1-23-09 Fixed Mesh Flaw - Thanks Plasticbox. Please Redownload

A set of modular stairs to go with the Maxis Pinegultcher Fence. The set, also, matches Numenor's "Fence-Arches and Fences". You can find them HERE

There are 5 color choices.

If you like my creation or effort, please hit the THANKS button. It only takes a few seconds

Installation: Place the text file named "1783_tb_Recolorable_PineGultcher_Stairs.txt" in your Scriptorium folder. If you don't have Scriptorium you can find it HERE.
Alternately you can copy the contents of my text file to, the end of, your modularstairs.txt located here (the drive containing your basegame):\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts If you aren't using Scriptorium I would, strongly, recommend you give it a try.

How to apply recolors to recolorable modular stairs - You will not find the different colours in the catalog
1) Choose the sytle of recolorable modular stairs you want (Chic, Euro, Pinegultcher, etc.) from the catalog
2) Place them on the lot. Add the railings if you like.
3) Select the Design Tool and click, in turn, on each step: now you can choose between the available recolours.
Detailed instructions with pictures can be found on the Numenor's "Holy Smoke" thread http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=50737

I like how it will look after installing it

but as stated with this (and some related stuff) I need scriptorium to do the hard part
I have a problem with that program
it keeps trying to install itself onto a dvd-rom drive
and I don't see the "where should I go?" question in the installer

does anyone here know how to fix that?
pm me if you know

remove me from your history, I'm not interrested in this site anymore

mr_db1 - Are you having problems installing the stairs or installing scriptorium? Read the post it will tell you how to install the stairs without scriptorium. If you are having problems with scriptorium check here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/192613

I am hoping someone here can help me, i am ripping out my hair in frustration. I use to have this mod in my game before my computer got stolen and I had to replace it and am adding back in all my old mods. I downloaded it, put the script (.txt) in scriptorium in my downloads folder and the mesh and recolors in my downloads stairs file i made. The stairs show up in the games catalog but every time I try to place them I get "can't place top landing". I try putting other stairs and use the design tool and get no color options at all but get "this object is not designable". Please Help I am so frustrated and I loved these stairs.

I'm upgrading a bin house of the Ottomases (?) to give it a more Craftsman look. The Pinegultcher Fence is perfect, but the lack of matching stairs was a problem. Problem solved! Thank you very much. The extra colors are also appreciated.

I love your stairs
