It seems shaklin site is changing its TS2 site address quite often, but one can still google it out.
Google with "Shaklin"or "Shaklin's Simspage"
Besides, the very first homepage is not changing normally.

No. Both Shaklin and Targa released elevator mods months ago.

Post in the Build Discussion Forum, and if the tutorial works, it could get moved into the tutorials forum.

It's not obsolete for people who don't buy ofb. Not everyone wants ofb :P

ToRnado, not really. Maxis' elevators have limited options in terms of design. This method has unlimited.

Shalkin and Targa's lift/elevators are just yet some alternative choices to make an elevator, besides, not everyone will want to use OFB lift/elevator in every lot they're making even if they have it.

working elevator for your sims houses and businesses. Now pay attention!

Step 1)

If you don't already have a pre-built house, this will be a bit easier as you can build around the "elevator shaft".

You will need the following files installed before you begin:

The actual elevator function by Shaklin (german, don't worry, just download:

http://shaklin.sh.funpic.org/module...php?cid=2&lid=5

For a touch of realism, be sure to get moon ez's wonderful elevator doors, walls, and floors at: http://forums.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=65694

Now, once you have all these installed into your downloads directory (c:\my document\ea games\the sims 2\downloads), go on to step 2.

Step 2)

For this tutorial, we will make an empty 3 story 8 x 8 building, with a 2 x 2
section attached somewhere on the outside wall (I used the back wall):


Make sure to add floors to all levels, both in the building and in the "Shaft",
don't forget to add a door from the outside into the building either, heh. For each floor, click on the sliding glass doors and wait a moment for the optional screen to pop up. Choose the sliding glass door that best suits your elevator (I used the plain steel door (no windows) on mine)

So, each of your floors should look close to this:




Step 3)


Now comes the tricky part. Starting with floor 1. Click on stairs in your build
tool, and select the elevator "stairs". Place this in your shaft exactly how
you see it in the picture below:




If you do not place it exactly like this, your upper floors will not work
correctly. This goes for every floor I will show you, follow the pictures exactly.


Step 4)


Move up to the 2nd level, and place the "Elevator steps" exactly as shown here:




Now, you may notice that the elevator buttons are sitting in the middle of the shaft, and are not against the wall. This cannot be helped, and you will very seldom notice this during game play.


Step 5)


Well, there really is no step 5, I lied. If you want to go higher than 3 floors, simply put another "elevator step" on the 3rd floor, in the exact same position you put it in on the first floor. In other words, every other floor
they're in the same spot. This is unlimited, you can make your elevator as high as you want.

Now, test it out by having your sim move in (if he / she hasn't already) and
click somewhere on the 3rd floor and choose go here. You should see your sim enter the elevator (Notice how the doors open just like a real one?) and
then pop up on the 3rd floor, where the doors will again open nicely and let him/her out.

If for some reason this doesn't work, and your sim does not want to move up
to the 3rd floor, go back and check the positioning of your "elevator stairs"
and be sure they are placed exactly as in the pictures above.





Between the elevator doors/walls/floors by moon ez, and the elevator stairs by Shaklin, this is a perfect working, and looking, elevator. Enjoy!

It looks like http://shaklin.kilu.net/ is currently under construction (from what I could make out of the translation).

Best use Targa's instead.
