Hi all,


I was thinking about making a map (well for years now). I had many atempes at it but never worked. Is there anyone on here who is willing to help me on a left path map?


I mainly need help is:


Finding/creating objects and splines


Traffic Lights


Creating New Buses


Please let me know if you can help,


Regards,


Will


P.s: Sorry if I posted this in the wrong topic.

To create splines you need to click on the spline tabs/ object and go either load or load directory and select a spline/object you want to use. It will then appear in the blank box above. Click on that spline/ object and press the key "N" 


Creating new buses require blender which is extremely tricky so you would have to learn.


Traffic lights need to be attached to a junction cube. There are some traffic light manuals around but i am sure someone can post the link.


Key Commands


- "R"- Rotate an object or spline


-"G" - Grab and move a spline or object


-"N" - Create a new object


Watch some tutorials and look for manuals or just ask someone to link you to them 


Hope this helps :)

With the key commands, you also forgot z and x which would move and object / spline on the x or y axis

@robertharris1996 I know little things like that, but I meant creating new objects, like roads and junctions. I have tried inserting traffic lights, but it never worked for me. Blender I know nothing about.


@North Devon Team Buses like:


Dennis Trident President, and Trident 2


Transbus Dart SLF Caetano Nimbus


Optare Solo*


Volvo B7RLE*


Scania Wright Solar*


Dennis ALX 400*


Dennis Dart*


* I know these have already been made, but they need more work on them before  I want to use them.

3 of the star buses you listed are illegal, because of copyright infringement. The guy who made them, never obtained permission to model them, so im afraid you will have to wait till newer versions are released, lowlander21 is working on an alx400 trident 2 which is a still a while from being completed. Road-hog123 is making a dart but not sure how far away it is from completion. The volvo b7rle is made actually a b7l and is made by ad156, but you need to obtain his permisson first before you start modifying his vehicle.

I am in the process of learning Blender to make (to start with) a President, I have plans for a Dennis Dart, Scania Omnidekka and Scania Enviro 400, but seeing as I have only just learnt the Blender basics, I don't want to say too many as I may not do very well, but I do have a list of buses I personally want to do and I can see a couple that are on there, I wont mention what ones as someone else will probably make on before me. In short, consider the President (Trident 2) off you're list!

@robertharris1996 I know leagal right would come into this, which would be a problem. Might just be a mater of using different buses that are already been made.


@North Devon Team That would be nice to have a president, but its understandable if you are unable to. I which I had the time and the knowlegde to use something like blender.

We are making a president and it has already started in Blender, it will be only usuable on our map at first but we do have plans to release a President pack very soon after which would include quite a few different variant's. Is there anything specific you arelooking for? (Rollbands, LED lights etc?)

Brighton and Hove/Plymouth Citybus spec might be a good one to release. One of those is my schoolbus.

I like the way Brighton And Hove do things!






Yeah, and now the PK02--- presidents are with either Herberts Travel or Plymouth Citybus. They're great machines but I'm sick of them as I've had one of them as my schoolbus for 5 months straight and we always used to have a variety on the route.

Dennis Trident SFD332BR1 Plaxton President. 1999:

You need to load in a traffic light. (Try a Roadhog one). Located in Sceneryobjects\Road-hog123\Addon_British_Style_Road_Signs\Generic\Traffic Lights, then place it somewhere random. Making sure the traffic light is still selected, then press Parent to then click the junction in question. Then press Options... when still selected on the traffic light and edit the indices.


Hope this helps.
