There's a lady I know whose rocks and plants grow
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
on a shelf called the Stairway to Cleveland...
A mysterious stairway that goes nowhere…but does it really? Might it lead to the past? Or another dimension? Or maybe, it just goes to Cleveland? And what if something
from the distant past, or another dark dimension, or gasp
, Cleveland decides to come down those stairs in the middle of the night…Well, better put a bunch of plants and doodads on it so that the interdimensional thing from Cleveland’s past trips and tumbles down the stairs, making lots of noise, which wakes you up, and you run, run, fast as you can while it wheezes and snuffles and plays accordion music behind you…
Oooooh, really makes you wonder…
The Stairway to Cleveland Plant Stand has three recolorable channels:
There are four presets:
No expansion or stuff packs are needed. The Stairway to Cleveland Plant Stand was play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.36 and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.33. It might work on other levels, but there are no guarantees.
There is a small defect in the mesh, a little bit of flickering that occurs in a piece of the central post. This defect is also present in the EA staircase mesh that I kithri-fied. There was no way to remove it without completely rebuilding the mesh, the thought of which made me curl into the fetal position.

I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have with the mesh so that my shambling lackey Snortmorton can fix it.
