6/5 stars on these paints, I absolutely LOVE the interior, the blue lights (custom?), the seat textures, the Greater Manchester adverts, just everything.
And I haven't even been to Manchester!

I wish you the best of luck with somehow getting the foglights to work.
Many thanks for these beautiful updates! :)
Cheers! 👍

The blue light is an rgb tweak to the model.cfg, so a bit like the headlight cluster, it's all misdirection really... ;)

Everytime I go looking for reference photos, I find another set of photos I'd not come across before... My Google fu is strong at the moment, but it's making me loads more work!

Case in point... Here's a First Manchester Stripes!

Ah great repaints - just wish we had Manchester in OMSI
If it ever happens, I'll be a happy man!

As you can probably tell by my reactions, I'm absolutely loving the latest updates to this pack! You've done a stallion job so far, and I can't wait for the final result...

Nearing the end of the repaint stage now, and now have interiors with the following variations
  • No smoking signs on lower deck only, for repaints prior to 1992 (when GM Buses banned smoking on all services), or where some refurbishment has been done
  • No smoking signs on upper and lower decks for all repaints after 1992, regardless of refurbishment
  • Original, semi and fully refurbished interiors, with appropriate seat moquette
  • Different drivers door posters, depending on era represented and repaint
  • Stairway bulkhead poster differences, depending on era
Original interior with wooden panelling and seat moquettes (Orange Check/"Orange Salt & Pepper")

So, for a run through, let's start with the mid 80s, just after de-regulation...

Progress to the late 80s to early 90s...

Then to the mid 90s, following onto the enforced split of GM Buses to become GM Buses North and GM Buses South...

Then to the late 90s and the purchase of GM Buses North by First and rebranding...

Still need to sort the GMS repaint(s), which won't take long and also mix up some of the adverts/create new adverts (for variety) too... :rolleyes:
Not even started the task of trying to move the fullbeam location! o_O

Loving this pack so far, It ain't no Northern Counties Fleetline but just WOW! :)
Thanks and I agree it's about as far from being Northern Counties as we could get... Too many saloon windows down each side for a start, not to mention the wrong front windscreen profile and double doors - Double door Fleetlines were all dispensed with in Manchester by the late 70s, not forgetting that Selnec ordered Fleetlines with either Northern Counties or Park Royal bodywork as far as I can tell.

Anyway, its the closest thing I can get my hands on to add texture tweaks here and there... Unless anybody has an NC AN68 in the wings somewhere, because I'd be more than happy to do all this again for one of those! :)

Aside from this lovely Greater Manchester pack, would you ever consider covering the later transfered Fleetline's that ended up In Halifax?

I grew up in Manchester and have fond memoeries of GM Buses, so I have to admit that Calderline isn't an area I have any knowledge of really, but it had been on my hitlist for a later pack, along with North Birmingham Busways and First Pennine.

It needs a couple of tweaks around the engine bay, a slightly deeper yellow and filling in around the light cluster (which is a pain to do!), but I knocked this up in about 45 mins... How does that do you? ;)
