The Sims 2 Still has More to be Found!
Intersecting Stairs

So, I was in the sims 2, creating this house when one mis-click helped me find this secret! And to think this hasn't been given a proper tutorial yet! Attached are 4 files, 2 for doing this method on foundation and the other for doing it on terrain. I alo have set up a "click-2-pic" version, where you can just click on the links to see the steps (since there are far more than 4 pictures).


ON TERRAIN

Step 1
Step 2
Step 3
Step 4

Step 5
Step 6
Step 7
Step 8
Step 9

ON FOUNDATION

Step 4
Step 5
Step 6

This is sweet Q! I -have- to try it! ::

This allows me to see into the minds of people! That's right, I can actually see what they're thinking!
So long as what they're thinking is exactly what I think they're thinking.

No, I tried all I could for TS3 but the closest I could get was having the corner stair cut off, not cut through. I promise you I am still trying to find something though

WOW. Thats awesome. I hope someone finds a way to do it in the sims 3 *fingers crossed*. But then look how long its taken to discover its possible in the sims 2 .

Well Done QBUILDERZ

Thank you for this very useful discovery - and sorry about resurrecting this old thread.
I never even knew that modular stairs could be dragged, so that is good to know, of and by itself.
The visible terrain in the corner might be covered up with some terrain paint that is similar to the stairs color to make it less visible.

I wondered how an outside corner might work out, so I tried it.
CFE and Moveobjects were both on:


End result:


Predictable, and not very useful, except perhaps as an accent to the corner of a building.

Thanks for ressing this thread Rob, I didn't even know this was a thing that could be done.
