MAN A21 UK RHD Version Driver & PassengerView Enhancement Pack. - Revised Driver View & extra passenger & Exterior Views

I created the pack for this vehicle combining the new Drivers straight-ahead view with an increased F.O.V. to give a more immersive feel to driving, with extra views to show all the features of the model & fantastic repaints so these could be appreciated more by users.
This pack does NOT change in any way the original bus model, scripts, or original / repaint textures, it just gives existing, tweaked or extra camera angles to view more of the buses details.
The package follows the similar...

Very nice work ARTY 1, thanks!
Any intentions of creating your namesake bus? :cool::cool:

Regards,

Although 3D modelling trained (not blender), advanced years & limited time probably scupper that.
I had been thinking about it & if the urge takes me I might do a little dabbling.

I don’t wanna sound stupid but is this how a real bus would look like if you were sat in a cab?
The answer is NO not 100% accurately, as I am trying to replicate binocular vision.
To show what I mean do the following :- First sit in a chair & look straight ahead.
Now close your left eye, & the restricted view you see is like the normal drivers view in OMSI.
By manipulating the single eye point & increasing the Field Of View I am trying to add the missing Left eye portion of the view.
However there are limitations, you appear further from the dash & if the F.O.V. is too large distortion occurs.
So you pays your money & take your choice some will like it some will not.

The main issue in this regard is the size of your monitor. Your peripheral vision extends almost out to 180°, but your monitor is only a small part of that. Thus when you increase the field of view to get more of what you'd see irl onto your monitor, you also make things in the middle seem very far away and probably show more vertically than you'd normally see when looking straight ahead. Project OMSI onto a wrap-around wall or something and it'd be a totally different experience.
