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.

How to apply recolors to recolorable modular stairs - You will not find the different colours in the catalog
1) Choose the sytle of recolorable modular stairs you want (Chic, Euro, Pinegultcher, etc.) from the catalog
2) Place them on the lot. Add the railings if you like.
3) Select the Design Tool and click, in turn, on each step: now you can choose between the available recolours.

very nice - I may build a house just to give an excuse to use this set. Thanks for this and all the other great build expansions you have made which make our houses look so pretty.
