Information (Click for more details):
This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS2 - check the sidebar.
This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Heliotrope Andronicus spent a lot of time and money getting a biochemistry degree. Then he dropped out his senior year to assemble furniture at Daedalus Industries. Drawing all those micelles and vacuoles and ribosomes for his labs paid off, because we noticed right away that his doodlings were quite detailed and accurate. I offered him a design job soon after this discovery and he turned me down, saying he preferred to work with his hands. I let him know it paid more and that we have a handball court for executives, so he's now our lead design artist for the Building Division. Always striving to meld architecture organically with nature, here is his loving tribute to the DNA molecule.
Two recolorable subsets - metal and glass. There are seven metal colors and five glass colors.
Requires: Apartment Life EP, since these are cloned from EAxis spiral stairs
Textures: all textures are EAxis, with slight modifications and recloring in GIMP
in-game price: 1244
Game location: BuildTools>Staircases
Total polygons: 2987 (about 400 more than glass ceiling spiral stairs)
--Inner handrail is not as smooth as I'd like, but had to keep the poly count within reason.
--Due to all the weird twisted angles on the center poles and handrails, sometimes the reflection cube makes some bizarre shading from certain angles. I experimented for almost two weeks with different cube settings and remeshes, etc., but no one solution could fix it all unless I took the curves out (and we know that's not gonna happen), so I tried to minimize the weirdness and we'll just call the remaining eyeglitches "Features"
--On the top floor accessed by these stairs, the glass balustrade clips through the floor a little bit, but not enough to warrant another remesh. If it bothers you, or ruins the flow of your decor, just let me know and I'll see if I can fix it.
--There is no right turn version for these stairs. If there's enough interest in one, just let me know in the comments and I'll make the effort to see it happen.
