What do you mean by "staircase objects"?
See, here's a new TS3 upload that has two double-wide staircases, in separate areas of the house. I don't see a compelling reason to do this, design-wise, which is why I'm asking whether there is a game reason, such as in TS2, where only one Sim at a time can use the finished staircases that come in one piece (not the modular ones, which allow more than one Sim to use them at the same time).

Also, could you do me a favor and not include "@ScaryRob" in your message? I'm obviously subscribed to this thread, so I will see your response, but if you include "@ScaryRob" I have to go into my private messages and delete it, which is annoying. The practice of calling someone's attention in that way should only be used in a thread they are not likely subscribed to. Thanks.

The creator rules don't say anything about a use of a single or doublewidth staircase.
TS2 Rules
TS3 Rules

You explained 'staircase objects' yourself. Those are the finished stairs.

Judging by the looks of that home I see a beginner creator, and the double staircase here truly is for the style and the idea of 'luxurious' since most mansions have wide staircases in real life.

*I'm currently firing up my game to be able to give a proper answer to your question.*

So, TS3 does not allow 2 Sims on a single-width staircase at once.

In that case they have removed the double staircase requirement. It used to say, but was a bit odd for smaller houses, this one is on a 60x60 lot though. Staircase objects are useless stairs, only modded objects. Luna had some of them. I have looked at the floorplan, they look real.

OK, perhaps in the case of this house it might be justified for the sake of "style", but there have been a number of small-ish houses in the last few months where it was really odd to have double-width stairs.

Not even with modular stairs (assuming TS3 has them)?

Indeed odd, but if it was an upload requirement it would explain why people have been putting them even into small houses.
Good thing double-wide stairs are no longer an upload requirement. Considering the myriad of game-play issues in all of the Sims series of games, it would be very strange to address this one issue, to the exclusion of others. I mean, like I said, in TS2, the object stairs also only allow one Sim at a time and MTS never addressed that in their upload requirements. Most builders know never to use those stairs, except in very special circumstances.

Anyway, sorry for interrupting the thread with this, but I just found it odd that some otherwise nice house uploads had oddly-looking double-wide stairs.

TS3 only has modular staircases. (Except ladders, spiral stairs and and custom 90 or 180 degree ones, those are single placeable 'objects')

And they only allow 1 Sim at a time - sucks.
So, as I suspected, that's why people have been doubling them up, regardless of whether it was an upload requirement.
Although now you've got me curious - what do those 90 and 180 degree stairs look like? Are they half-landings, which were always a wish for TS2?

Yes, they're the easy alternative to CFE half-landings, though they work like spiral staircases appearently:

IMPORTANT! These stairs are based on the spiral stairs and use spiral stairs animations, but you can get a scripted version with the animations removed at Simlogical.
