Early Access to Beta Provided by EA/ Firemonkeys

Once you complete the Love and Treasure Quest you can build a house on the private island and use the exterior balcony stairs we unlock, this post walks you through how to add the exterior balcony stairs and also how to change the stairs paving to be the same as the paving on your balcony

1.You firstly need a balcony, if you haven’t already build one this post may help

Please note: you need to have completed the DIY Homes: Lovey-Dovey Balcony Quest before you can build balconies

2.Once you have built a balcony you will be able to add the exterior balcony stairs, you can find them in the exterior stairs tab, the villa stairs are currently the only ones available

3.When you click on this tab a pop up will appear saying that exterior stairs can only be used to connect to balconies

4.To place the exterior stairs you need to be on the ground floor and place them on the edge of the balcony, overhanging by one square width, if you try and place them on the same level the balcony is on it won’t let you

5.Click the green tick to place the stairs

If you change the balcony paving after placing the exterior stairs you may notice that the paving part on the stairs hasn’t changed with the rest of the balcony, these simple steps fix this:

1.Once you have changed the balcony paving click on the stairs and move them one square away from the balcony, you will notice that the paving on the top of the stairs will change to the paving on your balcony

2.The stairs can then be put back into place (see the steps above if you are having trouble placing them)

I’m having trouble adding stairs to my balcony, what is the problem? If the balcony is flush with the room below you won’t be able to add stairs unless you extend the balcony so it is sticking out. The exterior stairs can then be connected to the balcony:
