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.
Updated 19-Dec-09 - with new script file
Apparently the range of numbers I have for my modular stairs conflict with some from Shakeshaft. If you have those stairs please redownload and replace the script file with the new ones.

These stairs require my original Recolorable Maxis Stairs as they take there texture from those.

I have three of my recolorable stairs that I have made open underneath, each one is slaved to my recolorable stair.

All these stairs have an added BHAV that allows passage under the first two tiles of the stairs, and also those same two tiles work with stages. All objects under the stairs were placed without cheats.
