How do you manage traffic in Downtown/Studio areas in themed hoods? And taxis? (I think I vaguely remember someone made a program to change the work vehicles - killersims?) Or do you just ignore it? Is it even possible to change the vehicles that show up there?

I found a few vehicles (horse-drawn) by Mike Stern in some LIU zips I had... this made me wonder. Has anyone seen any vehicles like - well, the Rocket? Steam-powered vehicles? Old tramcars? Traction engines? Or the more bizarre kind of steampunk vehicles like the monstrous spider-vehicle in the film Wild Wild West? (I KNOW the thing is huge but wouldn't it be fun even as a static object?)

(Afterthought: Should this be in Sleuths?)

This isn't the first thread about changing the vehicles for theme play (I want a variety of boats for my medieval and pirate themes, instead of cars). We'll leave it here for now. If anyone actually has a source for anything, we can put part of this thread there. Splitting a thread is easy. smile
