Welcome to my latest project for OMSI 2, the Alexander Dennis Enviro 400 MMC.
About
The Enviro 400 MMC is the successor to the Alexander Dennis Enviro 400, of which a similar version is available here on Fellowsfilm in the form of the Citybus 400. The Enviro 400 MMC is used across the UK and beyond by many operators. I'm sure you have seen an Enviro 400 MMC before in person, so you're probably familiar with it.

I'm of course always open for feedback and suggestions. Feel free to leave your comments here.
In case you're wondering, this is why I've been saying I haven't worked on Bristol for about a month. ;)

Why?
I, for one, love the E400 MMC. I get the bus on a daily basis and instantly fell in love with it when I saw it for the first time about 3 years ago.
There is currently an E400 MMC available in OMSI 2, but in the form of the E400 MMC LH HK. LH being low height and HK being Hong Kong. This means there is not a UK variant of the E400 MMC.
I have had past Blender experience making some generic models, but nothing as complicated as this. So I decided to take a gamble and give it a go.
When I first started the modelling, I was ready to give up. The model to begin with looked awful and actually worse than an unnamed group of modders which I'm sure you know about.
Since then, my skills have progress massively to the point now where I feel it's at a stage where it's ready to announce, so here's my announcement. tada

When?
I don't know. Progress on the exterior and interior of the bus is going at such a faster rate than I initial intended and the progress you see here is about 3 weeks worth of progress, so I'm really happy with what I've done so far. I have not touched the OSL (OMSI Scripting Language) before in my life so I would need to learn this first. I want to say it will be released by the end of the year, but it probably won't be. So please DO NOT take this as a release date. I'll release it when it's ready, there will be no release dates.

Beta?
I don't know when, and no you can't. So don't bother asking, you'll just irritate me and I'll lose respect for you.

Sketch-up?
lolno. I know Sketch-up is a good starting place for new people who want to get into modelling, but I find it inadequate for OMSI buses. So you'll be pleased to hear I'm using Blender.

Planned Variants
This is the current list of planned variants. This can be subject to change. I do not know a lot about different chassis etc since I'm relatively new to buses, but I'm definitely learning.
This list is correct as of the 17th February 2019.

The man has put a whip in and commented for once in 2000 years. I am so happy to see a proper MMC after waiting 2 years just to be promised one!
This could go well with the E200MMC also being made and come together as one whole release!

Well, wasn't expecting you to come out with this, looks pretty good tbh. Not a huge fan of the mirrors and mirror arms, but then thats simply because none here in Kent have those mirrors/mirror arms, so thats just my personal preference, not a down side or anything. Looks stunning and i wish you the best of luck with this project :)
Yeah there are different mirror variants. I haven't fully decided on what ones I want to use yet.
