I just don't think that I'm quite ready to delve into the word of bus modelling completely, I might continue with it depending on other people's thoughts.
Honestly you need to decide if you want to continue the project - it shouldn’t really be up to anyone else.

If you stopped then it’ll be a shame but use it all as a learning experience for when you feel ready to step back into the breach

I 100% agree with @Cauterize1750. You can be the only one who determines what to do with the project. You can take advice from others, but ultimately it's up to you on what the final say is. It'll be a shame for you to throw in the towel so early. However, I think that if you are to continue bus modelling, you have to be prepared for any obstacle and challenge, and always picture the end goal. It's what will keep you going.

I could've easily given up on my current project several times, especially when I dealt with quite a load of challenges in my personal life, and in the OMSI world. However, I always remember the main reason why I started developing and that's always my drive and motivation.

Have a think on it, before making any rash decisions. Also try to not think aloud online, as people may misconstrue your thoughts as factual statements.

Thank you Rhys and @Cauterize1750 for the motivation. I will be continuing with the bus. I have not made any progress this week (sorry!) I will update you guys next week! Yours, Myles W (The British Gamer)

It's been a while. I am not going to deny that. I only have some small progress, but to me it seems large. I have started on the interior, and my main focus has been the cab. I might be continuing my development in Blender (as I got a new pc for christmas).

I have also started the rear seating area (although there's no seats there at the moment.

Hi guys. It’s been a while since I posted in this thread, and in that time I have decided to keep the project development private. I will also be restarting the bus in blender as I wasn’t happy enough with the quality and you guys clearly weren’t either. Please can somebody lock this thread. I hope you understand why I am doing this. My map, Ambridge will still be continued however.

Wish you the best of luck with the development

So it’s still being developed, but we won’t get updates publicly?

Thats what "I have decided to keep the project development private" usually means. :rolleyes:
Yeah well...ok there’s nothing I can say

@The British Gamer Never give up, FirstEnviro and his MMC didn’t start perfectly, plus I’m starting a new bus project this evening after some random test builds in blender yesterday and 2 hours of Discord, so I’ll be learning the difficulties (cough animations) soon aswell
