You can't actually miss the bus normally because of movement rate anyway. The bus will automatically wait if a sim is en-route to the bus.

It sounds like not worth downloading this hack if you're after missing of school bus, since your sim have no chance of missing of bus even if you are occupying the biggest lot with lots of terrain from end to end or corner to corner your sim will still be wait by school bus if s/he is en-route to that bus and that's according to our great hacker here, JM Pescado, I didnt know this thanks for the info. But for those who are after seeing their sim running to school bus or adding a little changes to gameplay like me (and that's the main reason why I dug up this code, since I never experienced missing of school bus as JM Pescado already explained why), it's worth to try.

It would add a touch of realism that I like. Can't tell you how many times I had to run for the bus! Thanks, Monique.

I like it, kids running to bus get off the lot sooner, and keeps the game moving. I already spend too much time playing the game, now with this maybe I can pick up the pace! I like it!

Great idea! ^_^!! I always wished they did that =)
#16 Old 15th Sep 2005 at 8:37 PM
I think perhaps someone could try to change the code for the bus so that it doesn't wait longer than a little less than a Sim hour even if a Sim is already heading over to the bus. I mean really, what school bus waits a whole hour for the students to get on. The only way it should wait is if the student/s are right there in line to get on the bus...

okay, so I used to download stuff all the time, but now, after about a year, I've forgotten, where do I put that file that I download from here?

Also, since there's no help FORUM here, that I can find, my kids can't go to school.... everytime I click the school bus, and then click go to school, the action at the top left just disapears.....

Good job!
But... can someone make my lifewant? I always hated that ugly bus , I hate that ugly bus driver! So... I can't make it, because I don't know how, but I think you maybe can do it... is a mod for NO MORE SCHOOL BUS, with this mod you can go to school on foot (if you have BV) or by car (if you have NL). Please, please, please! I really hate that stupid bus! When it appears, I always delete it, but I'm tired of that... and sometimes my sims haven't car so I have to use the bus AND I HATE IT.
If you can make it VERY THANKS ^^
Good luck!
P.D: Excuse my bad english, I'm argentinian, but I hope you understand what I mean ^^
