Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Most of us have spent a lot of time on a school bus. I am sure at one point or

another we all have wished we could drag our bed or living room with us onto the bus. Well stop your

dreaming and wishing because now we can have it all with this new lot. Yes people its a liveable playable school bus.

This is great for creating stories or adding it to a trailer park. I personally created it because of a trailer park

project for 1 day create a world, pass it on for 30 days.

Also I work part time for a school bus company and there have been many times where I have wanted to

bring my whole apartment with me to work. So I figured I might not be able to do that but I could create it for my sims.

And now I will share with you. If you look at the pics you will notice it is a split level unit. Look at the black and yellow

stairs and the door. The door is on the lower level and the rest of the unit is on the upper

level making it feel like a real school bus.



For more info on my making of the school bus check these sites out for my interview with smiler3 on page 66 of flux magazine issue 1!

Edit: I must add I am sorry I didn't notice before I used a custom door for my side and back exits. It is by Madaya.

The Original Life Inside a School Bus

2016 Update. I believe I was told it was unbelievable to live in a school bus ... well check these REAL livable school buses:


Who ever knew going tiny could be so sweet and cozy? With this new and improved School Bus remodel you'll
find everything you'll need to live tiny, comfortable and happy. The remodel now includes:

1) "Stackable" washer and drier!
2) A porch and grill
3) A Computer
4) Larger table
5) Now More Toddler and Kid Friendly
i.e. Potty, Toddler toys and kiddie stove
6) A Crib
7) A Changing table Must have Sims 3 Store Download
8) Small flat screen
9) Burglar Alarm
10) An Easel
11) Bunk Beds
12) Remodel bathroom

Fixed the problem of Sims leaving dirty clothes all over the house.

I own all the Sims 3 games but I aimed to use items only from the games listed here. Please let me know if you have any problems or notice I left out a expansion pack/ stuff pack and I shall update the list.


As a real tiny house I tried to make the best of the livable space. I could have made more changes but I wanted to allow players to make their own personal touches. I played a family of 5 in this tiny house. I tested and retested the house and all the furniture placement is functional.

So Bring the pregnant wife, the kids and even the in laws! There's room for everyone. You can have 6-8 sims living here peacefully (or not so peacefully if you can't stand the in laws)!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is awesome! Now I can make Miniopolis from the Urbz GBA! One question though, I don't have HELS, how would that effect this lot if i downloaded it anyway?

I hope you all enjoy. It would be the coolest thing ever if it could drive too, but that area is new to me. I wanted to recolor the hay bales and crop them by cutting them in half making them look like tires. but this is in theory and I have never hacked anything though I would love to learn.
