September 20 - Friday Highlight is here! Check it out!
September 17 - We just released a small patch for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac - click here for more details.

Staircases - Rooms with the new staircase tool!

«1
Hello! :)

Thought it would be a fun thread to start where y'all can showcase rooms where you've put the new types of staircases in, such as L-shaped ones or any other types you can manage to make!
I saw when they were showcasing this new feature that you can make many kinds of interesting staircases with it, so it would be fun to see what kind of creations people can make with it.

Here's a simple one I put together!

    Since I challenged myself to make a 4x4 build, I made use of plenty of the stairs. Here's the kitchen (yay for basements ;))

    Ah, smart and nice way of doing it! :)

    I haven't quite figured out how to use the configurable stairs yet. I know there's a widget, but I must be doing something wrong. :/

    Ohh...after looking at it, I decided to change it. LOL

    I created a house based on Edna Mode's house in TS3. I also brought it over to TS4.


    The one thing that bothered me was the stairs.
    Edna's home has an L-shape stair case. I settled for this in TS3.

    I used cheats to create one...

    ...but it was a mess when the walls were down.

    I stuck with the same straight stair in TS4...

    Until now.

    I used the moveobjects cheats to place windows next to the stairs.

    It should be fun to go back to all my TS4 homes and see how custom stairs can improve them.

    That house looks great!!

    I love how easy they seem to be to use. I’m really excited to go back into some of my builds and fix up the stairs a bit as well. It’s a really cool feature.

    The stairs are my favorite thing ever. They just make my heart soar with every build lol. Seriously though, they're everything.

    I'm loving the stairs. I just made this simple little arrangement for going upstairs or down to the basement:

    The stairs in the basement are a reverse copy.

    This is reminding me that I should save all my staircase configurations so I can plop them down in a pinch. :)

    I love what I am able to do with the stairs now. Here are a few changes with the stairs. I didn't get the before shots.

    Judith Ward's home (recreation by lilsimise).

    A community lot in Del Sol Valley - Orchid A Go Go. I always hated how the end of the stairs was right at the wall.

    Nice seeing all things people build but I am not really a builder so to me stairs are just stairs and probably won't do much with them.
  • mebagl15mebagl15 Posts: 524 Member
    I also like what people have done with them. I probably won't do much with them either. I build from ideas in my mind. My mind hasn't quite got the hang of them yet.

    Been waiting for this since launch, although I already found some limitations I don't like.

    they are stairs....whats to dislike? they serve the function of allowing sims to go from one floor to the other. and people have been begging for more versatility.

    This is how I made some for one build and I really like watching the sims use them for some reason lol...

    That's awesome.
    I am looking forward to creating some grand staircases. :)

    For me, I just set the staircase down in the original fashion so that it looks like the standard staircase. Then when you click it, it gives you new arrow selections to click and drag to make the staircase L or U shaped. There might be a more savvy way of going about it, but that's what I've accomplished so far xD

    Really beautifully made! Nice that you were finally able to make it work!

    Love the first one! What a nice idea. :)

    This is from an upscale lodge-type home I just started. I have been wanting to do it for years but couldn't start it without decent stairs.
