Do you have a nice ride sitting in your driveway only to find out when you go somewhere a taxi shows up.With this mod you'll be able to drive that car & show it off to all your friends.

This mod lets you use your own vehicle to drive around town,go to work,community lots,etc.The taxi will only pick you up if you've walked someplace & don't have your car,also the carpool will still show up for work.

By default you can't drive your vehicle unless it's a great distance to your destination.Example below....

Default:
<kDistanceToDestinationSoSimWillDrive value="110">

My setting:
<kDistanceToDestinationSoSimWillDrive value="35">

Also added the option for the carpool to arrive 1/2 hour before work instead of an hour,this is a separate package & you can use both together if you so choose.

**Updated for World Adventures Expansion Pack**

Ok I installed this, And My sims STILL take the carpool to work. I am still having to cancel them running to the carpool and click on their car to make them drive it. I have the base game, World Adventures, and HELS.

Also where is this make carpool show up half hour before work mod everyone is talking about?

I miss in the sims two where if they had a car they would just get a pop up that says, "Your sim needs to be at work in one hour."

Same here... also WA and HELS...
Thought it was because of AwesomeMod, but deleted it and it's still the same

Annoying!

Not that anyone appears to have answered the previous post... but, does this work for generations and the new update? I know it doesn't cause problems with the game, but I am waiting on some other mod updates to start a new game, so I have no established sims to try it on yet.

It doesn't seem to be working for me since installing Generations. It isn't causing any harm but the carpool shows up again.

They do drive their own cars sometimes. If you have "make preferred vehicle" enabled for the car you want them to drive, they should automatically choose it when they leave home. But what do I know!

However, if your Sims is a eco-friendly Hippie nut-job, then they will pick to ride a bike if you have one, walk, or use public transit (taxi).

Hi, Thanks for the upload! I installed it correctly, however it doesn't seem to work with the limo. He owns an expensive car, (CC) it is in his inventory, and set to his perferred car. The limo STILL shows up. Any ideas? Thanks.

****EDIT**** Seems to be a problem with the game, not the mod, sorry. It seems that they only pull out the limo when I select "go to gig location" on the car... If I do it from map view it seems to work.

on the mod!

I have used this mod for a while now, but and my sims use their own cars, but after some time one of them starts using the taxi all the time instead of their car.

Cars in use by my sims LuminaCar 3000 (used all the time), and Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid (the sim with it insists on the taxi after a while, triggering a bad moodlet eco-freindly for them).
