Hi everyone, this what I have been working on for the last year and a bit.
It is a 2001 Plaxton President bodied Dennis/TransBus Trident 2

Specs
Engine: Cummins ISCe 225-30 Euro 3
Gearbox: ZF Ecomat 2 4HP-502C
Length: 9.926m (Short Wheelbase Model)
(Models FirstBus Specification Tridents after single door conversion from London to regional)

Model and materials all 95% finished in blender but I have never imported or scripted vehicles in OMSI 2, this is attempt number 2 and I am working on quite limited experience modelling but thought i'd give it a go and consequently I have no idea of the time frame for release but will definitely keep this updated (may be a struggle to get into OMSI but hopefully people on this forum can help).
Providing all goes well with this model, future plans are more variations of First's Tridents including a longer wheelbase model, 2002 Presidents and Euro 2 engined models.
Some textures have also been used from various amazing mods and will have to be addressed before model conversion.

Screenshots of current modelling stage below:

Good work! Like Rhys said the textures could be better quality but apart from that, good work

Thanks for all the support, I will play around with materials and textures and in the initial pics, rendering was set up awfully, having had a play with it, these pics should look a bit better.
Yes, these look better! :)
However, on the front headlights there appears to be a bug... the left headlight looks different than the right!
Also, the texture on the tail lights doesn't seem rightly positioned, and the interior floor texture IMO is a bit too much tiled.
It does look amazing, though! Great job!

(sorry if this sounds nitpicky, I just want to help you improve the bus)

Remember to export parts as lots of different meshes. Items like switches and controls will each need to be exported separately to make them clickable.

I have in the past exported the basic body as one 03D and then interior, wheels etc...

Good luck for the rest of your project!

Incredible work my friend, I have been riding these buses in the exact same livery every day for years and have sat in every seat, this is a 1:1 representation and is one step closer to my dream of my whole city with all buses, liveries and accurate sounds in OMSI. You've got some serious talent, give yourself a good pat on the back :)
