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.
Who needs fancy hardware and funky shapes? This simple wooden ladder will get you up where you need to go and back down when your done.

Simple LadderBuild/Spiral Stairs1752120

  • When placing the ladder the floor above is covered with a floor tile. Simply use the sledgehammer tool to remove it.
  • The ladder has a one tile footprint, but a space needs to be left one tile in front on the bottom level and one tile in the back on the upper level for access.
  • There are no animations, sims simply teleport up/down.
  • Tested with patch 1.36

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thank you for this! I love building tiny homes. I always have to add stairs to the outside of the home if I want a second story because of the space constraint when using stairs. I really appreciate your hard work.

I've been having trouble with this ladder but I'm not sure if it's a general routing bug or this ladder because I've been having similar problems with spiral staircases. If I click on say a bed and tell the sim to sleep then the sim cannot use the ladder to go upstairs. But if I click "go here" then they will go upstairs and use the ladder. Also, sims can't carry a baby up the ladder but they will down the ladder.

I love your stairs! Can I ask a request of you? Could you please make rounded stairs? I would absolutely love that!

Thank you!

Thank you so much! I'm going to try to make a little nook where you use the ladder to climb up and it's just a bed so it's kinda like a loft bed without the underneath space

Damn, I wish I'd seen this ladder sooner. It would fit much better in my library. The angle works better for a book shelf. But I've got it, now. heeeeeeeeeeee
