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.

Hi everyone. Tonight I bring you something that was requested by plasticbox, namely three Maxis modular stairs (Wooden, Steadfast and Chic) that are open underneath. Hope you like them. Enjoy!

Base game compatible, were tested with Basegame Starter Pro by Numenor.


!!! In order to make the stairs work in your game, you need to put the files 2008_CrocobauraChicModularStairs.txt; 2009_CrocobauraWoodenModularStairs.txt; 2010_CrocobauraSteadfastModularStairs.txt in your Scriptorium_ModularStairs folder if you're using the Scriptorium or you need to copy the text inside each at the bottom of the modularstairs.txt file from this path:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts


Polygon Counts:
Less than Maxis'

Additional Credits:
Maxis for the meshes and textures
Made with Wings3D, SimPE, UVMapper

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Wow, I was in here downloading the stairs for a lot another creator made, and these stairs look exactly like the ones in my house. In fact the rooms you have them in are the shape of my living room.
Just thought I'd share the strange coincidence.

I love these stairs!
I have a quick question, well request for help... I put the scripts in the folder specified, but when I try to save it it says I can't so I can't get the scripts for these stairs in the right folder.

Did you use the Scriptorium or did you try to try to edit the files yourself? You say that you put the scripts in the folder, which makes me believe that you used the scriptorium, and in that case there's no need to save.

This is most likely a stupid question.

do i need to use the scriptorum, or can i just move the .txt into the scripts folder and put the stairs in my downloads?

As far as I know, Vista should have no impact on these files as long as you can run the Sims on your PC. If they don't work it means that perhaps you did not isntall the code from the text files correctly.

I'm having a lot of trouble with the stairs. I used scriptorium and put it and it shows up in my stairs, but it shows up under the little stairs. I guess it's supposed to, but when I try to use the stairs it doesn't work at all. and I have a pre-made house that uses your stairs, but if i remove the stairs I can't put them back, and there's a chair and a bookcase under the stairs, but if I pick them up I can't put them back under the stairs. Since you made them I was hoping you could help me with this. I've tried everything, even before I installed scriptorium.

I feel like a bit of a noob asking when nobody else seems to have had any trouble, but where are the .txt files that I need to put in the Scriptorium? They don't appear to be in the post.

I'm very sorry, but I'm still confused. I don't know if I'm using the scriptorium thingy or not, where might I find this folder? I'm asking because I tried to put in the text manually, (I did this on my old computer) but it won't let me save it, (on my new computer) says file name is wrong or some such foolishness. Will it still show up in my game if the text is not in there? All suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

Hello. It will show up in your game but you won't be able to place them. You can get the scriptorium here.

I already read the instruction and I'm using scriptorium to make it easier to install and I've already put all file in the correct path :

<programfiles>\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts

<programfiles>\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\Scriptorium_ModularStairs

<Documentandsettings>\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads

But the stairs won't appear in my game !! I know maybe this is a noob question but I have SS for this

My Question Is :

a. it says I've to paste the scripts at the sims 2 folder, right ? But do I have to do the same thing to all my expansion the sims 2 folder ?
b. Where exactly this stairs appear in game ? Is it abnormally appear in buy mode ? or actually at Stairs at build mode ?

Man, I've got dissapointed with carina stairs, now this!

about the SS : Got The Johnson's house from GTA u like my design of that house ?
