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.
Okay well I have been attempting to make a couple of spiral Staircases in the past and they were either messed up within the mesh itself or the mesh was placed in the wrong position accodring to the staircase. I believe this is the best file I have created.... no?

Reasons it is better than my past files:

*No animations (your sims will step right in front of the bottom stair and teleport upstairs right in front of the stair going down.

*1 TILE!!! i wish it could be 4 and work but that didn't work out so well my first attemps, that will be next on the list.

*Well the mesh is just in general better, NO?

&&I will be making another one with a better mesh in some time to come. Someone else made the mesh so it actually looks great, I'm just going to trim it up a bit.&&


Well I hope you like, download, and or are "thankful" for it. ...dont ask me why I placed that in here...

Oh yes if anyone would like to edit, search further into, or make meshes of spiral staircases feel free to share your ideas as long as you give the smallest bit of credit to me. (As in "Well I made this entire thing but, XXHBPXX came up with the idea.")

Thank you


NO DOWNLOAD: You may download now I was having problems with the CEP file when I checked it so I just took out CEP...hope you don't mind maybe someone else can recolor it.

EDIT: CREDIT TO TARGA! For being the genius who first started this whole thing of less tiles and out with the animation! IF it were not for Targa this would not be here. Thank you Targa.

They do neither of these. They do teleport. This was based off of Targa's Ascention Teleporter so this staircase was built just to fit around the circle.


*This does not conflict with Targa's object. Well at least in my game. If it does in your game please tell me.

Because maxis has much more advanced tools which I believe haven't even been released to the community.Im sure they know the animation code too.

And if your talking about taking the animations from sims 1 and putting them in sims 2 I do not think it's possible. I think they are diff types of files...maybe not I'm not sure I tried going into animations once and i think i made something shake...lol but yah i don't think this has anythign to do with sims 1, it is up to the smartest modders out there! You go guys! ...lol

Thanks HBP. They look great, and are just what is needed to build my Scottish style castles. But why are they left-handed?

Of all the things I've lost over the years, it's my mind I miss most.

Thanks, this very nice, but why on earth should anyone give you credit for their own mesh, just because it happens to be a spiral staircase? You certainly didn't invent the idea of spiral staircases, nor are you likely the first or only person to have tried to make them for The Sims 2. Also, it's hypocritical of you to expect credit for an idea that isn't original and for meshes you have no hand in, but to have not have given any credit in your first post to Targas for basing this off her ascension staircase.

Okay as I re-read that I understand I did not word that correctly. I meant if you use my file or my mesh and edit it. And by not giving credit to targa i think i said I used Targa's file... sorry If I didn't I will check that to make sure that I did and if not then I will add words of credit to Targa.


EDIT: you were right. I'm sorry for not giving you credit orgionaly. I had type this thing up 4 times before The upload actualyl worked and there was actualy alot more typed up about and into it. I just got tired of typing everything out over and over and i guess it just slipped my mind. Sorry Targa and anyone else who thought or thinks I'm an arrogant s.o.b.... :skull:

hehe, nice... I can combine this with Targa's and make my sorceress' castle more 'realistic' (I wanted stairs in certain places, but the towers are too small for Maxis ones; the outright teleporter will stay for things like getting into her personal workroom :D) Thanks!
