Creating Stadium Bleachers

MEGAN1107MEGAN1107 Posts: 144 New Member
Ok so I want to create a soccer field and possible a baseball diamond and football field. I need to be able to create the stands that people sit in. Since I have no idea how to do this I figured I'd download one already created. Delete everything around it and build what I want BUT even when I download a premade stadium out of the exchange the bleachers/stands are not showing up. What am I doing wrong? All it shows is flat ground where the stands should be.

    Megan,
    When I did the Lord Admiral Stadium (Thread for it is here ) I used the stair tool set at about 6 or 8 wide. First I built a wall and placed a floor tile up on the second floor to build the stairs up from a foundation then to give the illusion of actual stairs I used an offsetting set of stairs (just 1 wide). Hope this helps

    Hi @AuntMorticha :) This is quite an old thread!

    The link that @flstrider shared is broken because it is to the old forums, which are no longer active.

    There are some pictures of the build to which he is referring here: https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/discussion/719107/the-lord-admiral-stadium-first-time-posting-and-first-shared-lot

    If you'd like to ask him something about it, you could try messaging him, but I don't know whether he's still active on this site.

    Best of luck :)
    You can still find me on my old My page (http://mypage.thesims3.com/mypage/GreenCats), and see more of my game-play pictures and CC-free uploads at gcsims.com
