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

This simple set gives you even more variations in decorating your hoods.
With this set you will able to add some bus stops, bus depot or bus terminal to your town.

I've set Night Life EP as required for using this decorations, but the idea is that you need at least one of any EPs installed, to have this decoration available from 'hood decorations menu.
But it is also highly recommended to have a Free Time EP installed, to be able to edit existing terrain, for better use of this set.

This set is mostly for advanced simmers, with some kind of experience on making custom neighborhoods and using of neighborhood camera modds.

If you don’t have enough info about all this stuff, I recommend you to check the MTS2 tutorials.

Each object of this set can be placed over the road and also over the lot.

Just put all the *.package files from the zip to your ‘Downloads’ folder.

What’s inside:

The set contains 5 objects:
1. Local bus.
2. Express bus.
3. Bus stop.
4. Bus depot.
5. Bus terminal with bays.

All objects can be found under ‘stones’ submenu of the neighborhood decorations menu.


Polygon Counts:
Local Bus Terminal with bays: 990
Local bus depot: 858
Local bus stop: 118
Local transit bus: 184
Long distance transit bus: 184

Thanks to the community as allways! :D

It's official to me: No offense to the other neighborhood item creators, but, well, I think you're the best one I've ever seen. This is fantastic! Thank you very much!

Good work all around, but I love the bus stations most of all - they blend in perfectly with the playable buildings in the game, are pleasantly grimy-looking, and the 50s-60s zigzag roof is a great touch. I know transit is your thing, but I think a set of neighborhood object buildings would look lovely alongside your decorative roads.

Thank you so much for another great set to make our neighborhoods look more lifelike!
I just downloaded almost all your sets, even the one I don't need at the moment. I'm spending a lot of time playing around with these and I'll do just the same for this awsome bus transit set.

So, to put it in a nutshell, thanks for making great quality, original items for our neighborhoods

So you need to find it and change 'stone' to 'misc' for example. Item will be aviable under 'miscellaneous' submeny after this

Thanks, I think I can probably figure it out. :-) I wish we could have collections in the neighborhood view too though so I could keep track of all the new things! lol

This is wonderful! You would think Maxis would've put in buses, but this one is better than the ones Maxis would've made!

You never fail to delight me with the goodies you provide for the "hoods"!
I am in awe of your skills and appreciative of your willingness to share them with us.
Now every wish that I've had for my hood is complete.
I love 'em all....thanks so very much!

Your set is awesome... It looks great in the neighbourhood and even better when seen from lots. Well, the stations and buses do, anyway. Maybe it's just something in my game, but the bus stops don't sit on level with the ground, so when I go into a lot where there is a bus stop nearby it looks like a piece of road is floating. I don't want to not use them... Is there a fix for this? Or... something?

Edit: I noticed after I built something right next to one of the bus depots that they don't sit flush with the ground, either...

O pitiful shadow bound in darkness, looking down upon people and causing them pain... A soul drowned in sinful karma... Want to try dying this once?

Wow so many lovely new goodies. I last saw your stuff when you were part way through the train set. I just remembered that you were making some tunnels and came back to see how they were coming along and find all these other great new sets.

Your hood deco really adds something to the Sims neighbourhoods and I love the attention to detail you've put into every set.
Thank you so much for sharing them with us.

I have no idea why this doesn't show up in the list of neighborhood objects or in your profile, but I'm really glad I was able to find it. It makes me wonder what else I'm missing on here. I've downloaded everything by you (it says you've done 15 items) and I'm loving designing and looking at my neighborhoods now. Thanks!

hey Criquette!
I'ts just so nice you create some nice deco here but it's to bad it isn't for The Sims 3.
That woud be just awesome! I'm building a town ( I've got it from the Exchange ) with high buildings. A real little NY But I haven't any deco for my city such as a usstop or railroad. It would be fantastic if youcould convert your creations to The Sims 3. Don't stop te good work
