    Thank you guys! Apparently I hadn't made it deep enough. I had followed the advice to lower it by two sets of stairs, but I guess that wasn't low enough. It's all good now! I really wish Sims would come up with L shaped, U shaped and T shaped stairs and basements/foundations that worked better with stairs. I probably should get Sims 4 but I really like 3 lol

    So I am trying to build my parent's house from the ground up...made a basement using the foundation as some had suggested that would be easier than trying to make stairs go through a foundation. I definitely wanted the foundation, though, for looks since their house has a stone foundation and basement. The problem is that I can't put stairs in from the foundation/basement up to the main floor. It simply says "Can't level terrain". I have leveled the terrain following the advice of many different youtube videos and threads, to no avail.

    I am unsure why I can't do this. One thing that might affect that is that I created (through much pain and sorrow) upside down T shaped stairs going from the main floor to the second floor. Basically L shaped stairs that have a short staircase on either side before going up the long staircase to the second floor. Although I leveled everything after creating those, I have a feeling that affected my ability to place stairs from the basement to the main floor. With that said, I CAN place an elevator and a wall in the basement, so it is not a height thing. I am willing to tear down all the walls of my house (it is just a shell) and to do whatever it takes to make this work, EXCEPT rebuild those T shaped stairs. That took me all day to do and I'm not about to try again lol.

    I have pictures but I'm too new here so I can't post them. Can anybody help me? Game is patched to the latest and I have Ambitions, Night Life and Pets installed.

    I did a video tutorial on placing stairs inside a basement. The problem is with the ceiling levels dipping down above the stairs. I cant post a link here but there is a link to my channel in my signature if you want to watch the tutorial.
