Announcement: I have renamed the Downtown version to Advanced version, and added one more feature to that version: if the sim is an employee at an OFB business, then the sim is only allowed to walk to work if the business lot is in the same neighbourhood as the sim's house. Witches can still fly.

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION

Apartment Life added two new interactions called Walk to School (for teens and children) and Walk to Work. These two interactions make cars completely irrelevant. If your child/teen misses the school bus, you can just order them to walk to school, with no consequences. If your sim misses the carpool, just order them to walk to work, in fact walking to work is better than ordering them to drive their car to work, because it takes quite a bit for the sim to get into the car and start driving, whereas walking is instant. Many of you probably deliberately miss the carpool sometimes to increase a skill or motive, and then just order them to walk to work with no consequences.

As you can see, Maxis didn't think ahead while adding these interactions. This mod gets rid of the Walk to School/Work interactions, because they have no place in the game. Now, if your sim misses the carpool, they are going to need to have an available car to make it to work, otherwise they won't be able to go to work. If a teen misses the school bus, they will also need an available car on the lot to make it to school. You can also have an adult/elder take them to school by car, but teens can drive, too. The most interesting situation is when a child misses the school bus. If that happens, their only option to make it to school is for an older sim to take them to school by car.

If the sim is a witch, they are allowed to fly to school/work.

Advanced Version: This version of the mod allows sims to walk to school and work if they live in Downtown. However, if the sim is an employee at an OFB business, then the sim is only allowed to walk to work if the business lot is in the same neighbourhood as the sim's house. Witches can still fly. You may also be interested in downloading my Bills Mod which increases your bills if your sims live in Downtown.

This is a simple mod, but it makes vehicles very relevant again.

You need the latest version of 7zip or WinRAR to get this mod.

Requirements: Apartment Life.
