Sim won't drive car, takes bus instead.

#1goatman455Posted 6/7/2009 7:29:42 AM

Ok, so I bought the house with the lake by it and I also bought a really crappy $950 car. Well, I guess b/c of the location of the house, my guy won't actually drive his car but take the bus instead. Even when I click on the car, he walks to the street and takes the bus. How can I change this (or my lot config) so it won't happen?

Have you set him as the owner?

I thought there were only taxis.....

I am the solo owner of the house, so that option doesn't exist. I USED to take a taxi before I bought the car, now I take a bus. I wonder if the bus was created for out of the way lots. If so LAME!

hmm, that's odd, never seen a bus in the 6 hours I've played so far xD

I have 6 cars, 2 are the $85k ones and one $100k one.

Figured it out, it's because I am a rock star so I take the "tour bus" everywhere, that's cool, but why do I have to quit being a rock star just to drive?

It's because the tour bus is faster than the car.

Yeah this is awesome design. When you become a rock star, you take the tour bus everywhere - even when you're shopping for books at 1AM. Same thing for the level 10 business man, level 10 sports star, and possibly other jobs (but replace bus with limo.)

Really EA - you have no option to use the car you spent 100k on once you've reached the pinnacle in your prof? Thats idiotic.

Yeah, I agree, hopefully they will patch it in (you can always quit).
