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.
This is the final phase of this project (I think, lol). A square-shaped elevator/stair. I also made this one smaller than the original, as you can see in the screenshot. Hopefully someone with more talent than myself with textures will give you some nice recolors for this.

This is a new object, and will not replace your other stairs.

Recolor Information
See the readme.txt file in the object download for specifics regarding redistribution/posting of recolors. Alpha blend mode is enabled, so you can make transparent or semi-transparent .png textures. Additional download archive contains a .jpg image of the UVW mapping, and also a Photoshop .psd file with a transparent map you can copy/paste as a new layer into your image for easy alignment of textures.

Enjoy!

Edit: Forgot to mention mesh info: 24 faces

Your elevator is the spiffiest thing since sliced toast!!!
This may sound odd, but is there any way to make it more expensive?
Having it be so cheap diminishes the realism. Elevators are pretty much always more expensive than stairs...

I just love these and they work perfectly. I don't have to use stairs in my houses so I have extra space I can use. There's a "Beam me up Scotty" feel about them. Thanks so much :D

I've been wanting "Spiral" stairs like were in Sims1. This is close, but I still want some "spirals". Has anyone made any? Maybe there are some "hidden" and "forgotton" by Maxis, that someone more savvy than I could find?

TARGA,

Great! Besides the easy usage, good looks, and space saving Technology, these stairs are MAJOR time savers! OMG, these save so much time, I can't thank you enough!

Cheers!

I don't know what I ever did without these. I hate stairs, they are always in the way. These solved all my problems.
