spiral stairs

Is the spiral stairs in an expansion pack or is there something you have to do or get to make it work because when i clicked on it, it was empty.

    Generations has spiral stairs??
    That is so not fair that they put stuff that many people want in an expansion pack to make us buy stuff we don't want! I don't want the stupid Generations, so I have no choice but to not have the spiral stairs?? Not right, if that is the case.

    Generations is a great EP, in my opinion. Second favourite to Late Night. But, I have a very active imagination - despite my age, and enjoy watching the kiddies acting like dinos, astronauts, etc. :lol:

    The base game didn't have the half walls and round pools when it first came out. They were additions with Late Night. After some time they made them available to everyone else tho :)

    So I wouldn't be surprised if they made spiral stairs available to those who don't have Generations after people stop buying the expansion.

    Ofc this is just me thinking. I might be wrong, but since they did this type of thing already I wouldn't be surprised if they did it again.

    I thought the same thing, kinda, but I really like it better than I thought I would, not for the Imaginary Friends or the Body Hair or Canes for Elders, none of that, more for the sit down weddings, the cake, the gifting, the bunkbeds, and the spiral stairs. It's like a stuff pack + FOR ME!

    Maybe not for a few of you that just LOVE all this other stuff, I'm talking about MY experience with this.

    Maybe they'll have one in the store later, just like they did with the washing machine for people who don't have Ambitions.

    You don't need to buy Generations to get the stairs -- EA was decent enough to include the spiral stair ability in the Generations update. :wink: TIt's just like the person above said--we didn't have fountains or body hair or basements featured in EPs, until they were included in Patches. Now, EA doesn't GIVE you any stairs to use, but custom creators are starting to make CC stairs now that work just fine for base game only/ non-Generations users like myself. :) TSR and Hexameter and RPB all have spiral stairs now--check them out!

    I would think it would be more practical for the stairs to be in Late Night. :hunf: But maybe if they make a mansion EP then they could be there also. :mrgreen: :thumbup:

    I agree, considering the small apartment space. XD

    Got to build mode and click on the stairs, there should be 2 tabs there and one has the spiral step in it.

    I have the base game and all stuff packs, i will be buying the EPs very soon but i must say i have already had a spiral staircase and a rail that matches. (Had because i had to reinstall the game due to computer troubles.. little brothers >.>) but if i remember correctly it was there after i downloaded a few lots on a random spree. it came with the house as well as a few cars and user made furniture. i do not recall which lot but i will be going through my history to find it because they are amazing! they save so much space and never look out of place.

    Old thread, but I had to respond seeing as it's been resurrected already:

    By that logic, everything would come in the base game.

    It makes no sense putting it in generations because they give the folder to you even if you don't have generations so what is the point they shouldn't give you the folder unless you have generations or they should give you the folder with at least one type of spiral stairs

    I noticed my base game had A spiral stairs but when I installed Ambitions, they disappeared...

    Hi, I have a few questions

    Is it true you can only get the spiral staircase in generations? (I really want to get the spiral staircase

    2) How much would generations cost in Canada? (Just cause it sounds fun)

    3) (kinda off topic) But how do you make a question forum? (Please don't get mad)

    ~Thanks you

    1. Spiral Stairs were an exclusive item of Generations, now they can also be found in Aurora Skies. :wink:

    2. Sorry, but I cannot help you with the price in Canada :oops: !

    3. Go here, choose an appropriate section and you'll see a "New Topic" button in the left corner (just where the "Post Reply" button is). Click the button and write your question :mrgreen:

    I just tried to download some custom content spiral staircases, and also downloaded a lot, and installed them all at the same time. The lot downloaded fine, but the stairs didn't. It hit me with an error message: "Error: Requires missing Expansion Pack" These were 4 different spiral staircase objects by 4 different authors. I think your information may be a little misleading. If you would like to find the stairs go to the objects section of "The Exchange" and search "staircase"

    I love and need the spiral stairs, but I'm having the same problem. I had to use the all-at-once updater to get the updates to download correctly when I purchased the game a few days ago, and I'm not sure if that's part of my problem, but it says my game is up to date.
