This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

As requested by pinkynono.

The Simple Structure Staircase, Upwardly Mobile Staircase, "Stare Stepper" Staircase, Stairway to Eleven, Altitude Attitude Inc. Step-by-step Staircase and Gothwise Staircase in both AL wood and MALM colours.

The Gothwise Staircase comes with both black and white metal. The Stare Stepper Staircase comes in solid AL and MALM colours as well as with white rails.

I have put them in separate zip files as well as 1 with everything in it, to make picking and choosing a little easier...I hope.

KNOWN FAULTS: Some parts are a little blurry or look a little strange, unfortunately without remapping the stairs there is nothing that can be done about it, sorry.

These are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Simple Structure Staircase:
Found: Build Mode > Staircases > Staircases Price: §900.

Thank you for doing it! Such an amazing job!

Great, that makes those stairs actually useful Would you consider rustic recolours with standard Pooklet shades? It doesn’t need to be soon (there will probably be a while before I build as I want to finish some other things before), just at some point.
