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.
Is everyone tired yet of all the slender iron posts for what are otherwise lovelt, lacy iron stairs? Well, here you go.

They require Numenor's recolourable wrought iron stairs, found here - http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=55436
Without them, they will not work, because they pull their textures from his stairs.

However, on the good side, you only need to recolour his and you get both recoloured - since sometimes we want those iron posts going into the ground, it makes for easy matching and fewer files!

Thanks to Numenor's kindness and genius, these stairs have the same features as my open frame wooden stairs - sims can walk under them, you can build under them, place furniture under them, etc.

This project has been a learning experience, and very happy-making - I always loved these stairs, but I prefer the open look - and the only default open stairs by maxis are all very modern - doesn't suit me at all.

Remember - you MUST have http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=55436 for these to work.

Also, you need the Scriptorium - http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=192613 - Place the text file in the Modular Stairs folder [ shortcut will be in your downloads folder ]

Thank you so much, Numenor, for all your help on this! I hope everyone enjoys these. The house in the picture is in the testing phase and should be forthcoming soon, too.

Polygon Counts:
Stairs - face count of 468 and a vertex count of 762

It is nice to have some substantial stairs, thanks!

Thank you! I never really use the wrought iron stairs inside a house because of those posts (they just look ugly to me) so you've just made a Maxis item way more useful. Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much! I, too, have avoided the Maxis stairs because the posts ruin them. Now I can use them! Besides, I was looking for more post-less stairs to download (I do a lot of circular stairwells in my buildings) so this is perfect both ways. Thanks again!

Quick question: do you need the notepad document in your Downloads folder, as well?

That goes into the scriptorium modular stairs folder - there will be a shortcut in your downloads folder. If you don't already have it, click on the link in the main post. It is really easy to set up.

Yes they will - any recolour of Numenor's wrought iron stairs will work with these.

Thanks, Reyn. I will definitely try these. Now my sims won't have to endure the indoor shrubbery to hide the hideous posts under the stairs hihihi

Thanks for the stairs.

I thought you should know that these stairs share the same number (1302) as these: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=247067.
If the user changes the txt file in their game on one of the packages to a different one there shouldn't be a problem.

Hey I downloaded this file and the recolor file thing and I put the text file in to the stair case Scriptorium file, but the stairs don't show up in my game.
Is there a reason for that? Did I not something correct?
Please reply because I really want to use these stairs.

Do you have the falling water stairs too? *points up at the post above* I missed this too, but it looks like someone else thinks numerically like me.

Check all the stairs you have, and just modify the text file number to something not used on another.

The default stairs were always among my favorites, but one day I starting thinking to myself "I wish they didn't have the little support poles, hey let me check MTS!" So I looked around and found these, and it was exactly what I was looking for! Add in all the recolors I downloaded and now it's even better.
