Developers (many of which speak to admins directly) have told us these kind of pestering posts drive them away from the forums altogether, which is why there is a longstanding rule against them and why we remove such posts. Developers know what and when they last posted, they don't need reminders. One month elapsing since an update is nothing, it's not unusual for projects to go several months with no readily visible changes to showcase (if the author even wants to showcase)It is prohibited to ask questions such as "When will this be released?", "Do you need beta testers?", "Any updates?", etc. in this section
Because I kept finding inaccuracies in older models. Keep in mind someone's blender skills come a long way in a year.But why do you keep re-doing the model?
Does this also mean that you'll have to re-do the interior too?
I imagine that's a very time-consuming process.
Hi, Lukeyboi!Because I kept finding inaccuracies in older models. Keep in mind someone's blender skills come a long way in a year.
I'm a perfectionist so I'm less afraid to scratch a model if it's not to my standards. This one, so far, does look like an actual President.
The interior will have to be rebuilt BUT I was looking through the old interior yesterday and there is a lot of stuff I can reuse. It will need to be modified for accuracy though
It’s a shame to see all the work go, but I’ll support the decision.So... I haven't worked on this bus since the last update but to update you all on my current plans:
As you know someone else has come along and started developing another President. My opinions are reserved on this so please dont ask. I'm sure you can all figure out how I feel.
I've been told to just continue with the Trident however I feel it is pointless that 2 of the same bus is being made. If the 2nd project doesn't come to fruition the Trident will be continued.
To avoid conflict I've decided to change this bus so it is now a DAF President, much like the ones Arriva London had. A provincial spec will come first, followed by a London spec. Reference is being obtained by friends of mine at the minute because I have none local to me.
I also have another bus in the works to compliment this, you'll find out more about that in the future.
Once my GCSEs are over, development shall resume.

Love it or hate it, this project is still continuing.
I thought it would be best to update in case people thought we gave up or something.
GCSE's finished on Monday, so I have more time to work on this now. However, be aware I do have other commitments.

A vast range of improvements have been made.

General accuracy improvements and tidy up
Where is the Facebook?
Will it come back?
Am I going to rebuild it 6985 more times?
Is it going into OMSI?
Yes, by the end of the summer with luck
Will updates become more frequent?
What is the spec now?
By consultation with my collaborator, Mr. Mostochio, we have decided the initial release will be a First spec Trident. Based off the LK51Uxx batch of vehicles.
Following will be the bog standard "dealer stock" spec I initially was making, then the DAF, then it's a mystery...
