    I have SIMS generations but my spiral stairs arent there either. I've only had this game for two weeks and I've been dealing with bugs in the game ever since. My sim panels get mixed and dont change when I click different sim portraits and I have to reboot and everything.

    Try getting some from They have a plenty of custom made stairs to suit your needs, all for free. You don't even need to have a certain expansion pack to get them to work. Just make sure you drag everything to C:\Users\Della\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads or else it won't work. And also, you have to install it on The Sims Launcher in the downloads tab as well to get it on the game. It is a very safe site, and I have tons of downloads from it, and it hasn't messed up my game and my computer yet!

    They're under a tab above the regular staircase options.

    Also, just FYI, if you have Island Paradise, I find that spiral stairs anywhere lead to terrible lag and routing errors. Sims are constantly getting stuck on them, so I replace them with regular stairs or ladders. Maybe it's just me, maybe it's the particular floor plans in IP.

    Hm, @Stdlr9 - I thought it was only if the spiral stairs were stacked one on top of another that they caused problems. Of course, it they are turned so that the footprint goes through a wall, fence, or even window; then, they can say something is in the way. Sometimes you have to tell them to "go here" or something in order for them to approach differently. Routing can sure be a strange thing to figure out at times!

    I don't use Generations, but I usually use the spiral stairs so I know they come with other eps. I can't tell you which ones though.
