U shape stair (from Hell)

Hello to all, I've lost my marbles with this one, need it to make a 'U' shape stair, (see attached drawing) and to no avail. Looked in the NG with really no good results. I'm hoping one of you good Samaritan can lend me a hand or point to the correct place to do this.
As always, any help is very much appreciated.

Hi Dustin, I thank you for the response, I failed to mentioned that what I was really looking for is the number of risers / treads as shonw on the 2D drawings, I also failed to mentioned the floor to flor height of 14'-0" (= 25 risers) in my case. I think I knew the pline shape and stair edges?? but is always refreshing to be reminded of these little tips.

Use multi-landing stair. Attached is an ugly one to get the idea across. Since you mentioned you knew how to adjust pline shape and stair edges so it's no big deal to get it to look exactly how you want.

Hey Toan, did you make that with version 2005 or 2008?, I've been plying with this today with 2005 and I'm having a time to get it to work, I find it difficult to place the risers in thr right location as far as being in the center of the middle stair flight, all the streching and editting I find it difficult for my taste, maybe I need lots of practice with stairs.
