This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text 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.
IMPORTANT: in order to use these recolours, you have to download the "Recolourable Wooden Modular Stairs" from this thread.

05 JULY - MissPiggi has added 8 wood and 20 marmor recolours

08 JUNE - Luslipz73 has added a white recolour

28 MAR - JWoods has created a cherry wood recolour

27 MAR - JustMoi has added 14 wooden and stone recolours

27 MAR - Buntah has added her natural wood recolour

26 MAR - Dewshine has added 4 trashed wood recolours

25 MAR - Here are a couple of recolours I've made for my recolourable Wooden stairs: a red wood one and a worn black version.

In case you want to create additional recolours for these stairs (I hope so! ), I've prepared a useful template that you can use to understand which parts of the textures will apply to which part of the mesh.

Please, post in this thread all the recolours you make for the Wooden modular stairs.

Hey Numenor ... it took me FOREVER to find this thread....I may be wrong, but I would expect recolors of stairs to be in the "Recolored BUILD mode" section instead of the new object section ;-)'s my first contribution....I just loooove natural woods so I made these for my natural wood kitchen.

Thanks so much for color enabling these for us, you genius you!

P.S. Love those trashy stairs, Dewshine!!

How many wonderful recolours! Thanks!

LINDA: maybe you're right... I thought that the Build Recolours were for building items that were already in game (while in this forum the user knows that s/he must download a mesh package in order to use the recolours).
Anyway, I'm glad that you found this thread and that you posted your lovely recolour!

Hi, you asked for recolours so here are my contributions to the wooden stairs. And thank you so much Numenor for making them available for recolouring!! As I mentioned in your other post I'm an old-fashioned kind-of-girl and adore wood (I went a little wood grain happy). Hope you like them.

They work in my game but please let me know if you have any problems with them in your game. Each file is an individual *.package file and screenshots are included in the zip. Thanks.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Recolor's always make for some fun... I do not usually do to many but this was to tempting not to do.. Here is a cherry re-color for your viewing and download if you like... Thanks for making the package and allowing us to create these...

To have a foundation like that, I have raised the terrain by 4 clicks, built the foundation on top and then leveled the terrain again.

thanks for the zip file
Thanks for recoloring to a zip file. I always say there is not enough build items. I've been hoping that someone will recolor the railwayfencing to look like steel beams. Thanks :smash:
