To make good buses in Blender you need:
  • Reference Photo's
  • Skill
  • A heck of a lot of patience
Its not that hard, learn Blender, choose a bus, find reference photo's and textures and it just falls into place. Try watching @Lowlander21 's streams as they can be really helpful. We'd all like to see more RHD buses in Omsi, so good luck with it all.

1. Use tris and quads (which cannot possibly be concave) instead of ngons to avoid triangulation errors.
2. The order of meshes in a model.cfg is the order they will render in, and render order matters greatly for translucent objects.
3. Specular does not apply to polys with transparency.
4. Low-level ambient lighting and shadows should be baked into textures to improve appearance of objects in Omsi's simple lighting engine.
5. An object can be lit by interior lights while also having multiple lightmaps applied to it.
