And I just thought about it do you have Awesome Mod installed I believe that one also disables the school buses.

You could have a mod somewhere that is disabling the school bus.
Or it could be a mod conflict with 2 or more mods and the school bus not showing up is one of the side effects. Sometimes the results of a mod conflict isn't even related to what the mods are meant to do.
Huh, I didn't even consider that :-o Thanks, I'll give that a try and I'll report back :)
Have a nice day and God bless :)

Alright, so, I ended up removing some mods - no script mods, mostly corrupt stuff for CAS. I'm pretty sure that it contributed nothing. But, I take back what I had said earlier about the school bus not showing up in a new save. I tested the Bunch family in Sunset Valley, and the school bus ended up coming for them. So I'm going to assume it's an issue with my world.

There are several reasons I have in mind, however one may not be correct while the other may be. I have no idea. With the Register mod I had basically disabled everything because I wanted to assign roles myself, so no sims generated for food stands, bars, etc. I'm not sure if it affected the school bus in any way, because taxi drivers and other service sims (when called or shown up automatically, such as a firefighter spawning when there is a fire). My other theory is that currently I am doing a makeover of Moonlight Falls; rebuilding lots to my liking and creating new households. My makeover may have affected this, because I had bulldozed the original school lot and replaced with a different rabbithole school, though I plan on making my own in the future. I have reset the town and school lot with Master Controller like I had stated earlier, but still nothing.

I have no idea what to do next. I hope creating a whole new save is not because I am lazy I put a lot of effort into this save, and saving every lot and household and then bulldozing everything again in the new save is such a chore. :cry:

OH, I should note that the notification I get an hour before school starts states that my kid should be heading to school soon, instead of stating that the school bus will come and pick them up.
Have a nice day and God bless :)

You can rule out the Register theory. Vehicle drivers are neither Role Sims nor Service, they are a class unto themselves. They are actually considered to be untouchable, in the sense that they are only very rarely seen outside of their vehicles.

May I ask if you have or are willing to try Buzzler's mod, as I recommended some time back? I think the recommendation may have gotten lost in the shuffle since then.

Thank you, the mod worked somewhat :) For some reason it kept getting disabled? I'm going to assume that's not normal. But I just enabled it before my child left for school and the bus showed up thankfully.
Have a nice day and God bless :)

You're right, it isn't normal for the schoolbus to be disabled. If you have testingcheats enabled, you can disable the schoolbus just by clicking the mailbox. Is it possible that that is what happened? If so, you should be able to reverse that, even without using a mod.

Ummm, I'm not quite sure what you mean...and I don't think having testingcheats enabled is the issue, I left on for another save and the school bus showed up just fine.

I believe what Cassie was saying was that perhaps an accidental click on a mailbox with testingcheats enabled brought up the disable school bus and that got accidentally clicked in that particular save, not that having testingcheats enabled was itself the problem.
