Cast Iron Stair and matching Fence
Updated: 27th May 2012 at 10:22 AM
There is now a small corner filling you can use if you build a balcony and have the round corner. It have three color channels so you can match it with your floor.
When placing the stairs don't use automatic railings or you will get a wooden railing!
First place the stairs and then the suitable railing
I have no cast-iron staircase that was in Sims1 and sims2 and was therefore forced to make one myrself. Unfortunately I can not make a spiral staircase which I also miss alot. When I was at it I also made a matching railing and fence of the same design.
All three have three color channels. At delivery, all in galvanized so I encourage you to color sets in an appropriate manner.
Fences are in a version for the Base Game.
You muct not have World Adventure to use this set. The difference is that the height do not correctly match so if you want to place a lamps on the poles it will be a small gap.
There is a EA-gate matching the fence.
The staircase cost $ 60 and the fence $ 30. For some reason I do not understand, the railing costs nothing. The corner filling cost $ 10 and you can find it among the statues in the decoration directory.
Staircase: 560 vertices and 356 faces
Railing: 222 vertices and 126 faces
Fence: 108 vertices and 54 faces
Corner filling: 34 vertices and 24 faces
As always I first of all thanks EA for this marvellous game, the developers of the tools for creating, the autors of tutorials here and there and all the helpful folks on the forums.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

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.
