I love it so much!!!!
Great job on that Pressie (and Alisa)!!

BTW: What is a "bog standard"? Thanks in advance. :)
It may look like an Ailsa, but it is a Citybus, pretty sure it was ordered that way by FifeScottish for similarity to other buses in the area (aka Ailsa's)

Bog standard is basically a non-operator specific order. Examples of users of the bog standard president, are Pete's Travel. They ordered the PO51 batch, later used with Reading Buses, and now most of the batch reside with TheGreenBus.

Bog standard means default or original

Ah, I see, thanks!
Do you know what BOG stands for?
Like, is it an abbreviation for something?
Thanks! :)

My mistake about Ailsa. I had no idea there were other buses that look like Ailsas, but aren't Ailsas. Sorry! 😄

Its just a normal saying that you would use to describe something that isn't out of the ordinary. (Thats pretty bog standard) it has a few other meanings too depending on where you live. Or you could use it to address Mr Bogbrush also known as @BlueOrange

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.

FAQ

Where is the Facebook?

Gone.

Will it come back?
Maybe.

Am I going to rebuild it 6985 more times?
Yes.
No.

Is it going into OMSI?
Yes, by the end of the summer with luck

Will updates become more frequent?
Who knows

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...
I love it! You have done a great job!

Work on the exterior is finally drawing to a close. Some changes since the last update:
-General updates to the front, mainly involving the polishing of the bumper and rescaling the windscreens.
-Advert boards
-Details to the side have been modelled in
-General polish of the body

Next up me and Mostchio will be peer reviewing each others models before getting everything fitted.

I would like to thank you all for your support over the years, however I am pleased to announce i will be handing over the project almost entirely to Mr. Mostochio who will continue the bus into OMSI. My work on the model was essentially complete anyway.

I will be helping here and there, but only on a minimal level.

Mr. Mostochio is a very talented and capable developer with a phenomenal eye for detail and I know he is going to make the bus prosper and do a better job with it than I ever did.

It's been a great 3 years and I've learnt a lot from this community, who have admittedly helped me so much and I owe it to you all, as without you I wouldn't be as fluent with Blender as I am now, but I know where I'm not wanted.

Thanks for the support everyone.
I am talking to @Lukeyboi getting all his models transferred before I start texturing and converting into game, models not too far off finished now.

First's TN TNL ex London converted spec is the first model being made, if all goes well Metroline and London General all in london spec will be next and possibly Stagecoach. Not sure about ticket machines atm possibly will be a mix of a couple.

Will hopefully have some update pics for yall very soon.

I've spent 3 months away from this community and in that time you'll be pleased to know that I've done nothing. the last time I even opened the model files to the bus after the last update were 2 days ago, which in my normal fashion I spent a reasonable portion of time rebuilding the front section of the bus, it looks no different, because the bits I've redone were mere tweaks. The most obvious change is the new fuel cap section which has been rebuilt so it does not look like the one from the B7 but instead the one from the Trident. Obviously the position on the different chassis' are slightly different.

Is the bus even in game yet:
I'll be straight up and honest, No. I've spent the last 3 months doing other things away from the community and haven't even opened OMSI let alone do development for it. However Mr. Mostochio has been working on the interior, and we just need to finally piece all our work together, sort out the textures, and then the bus can go in game.

Is It even going to?
Yes, plus as a static version which will come before the driveable version, which should be released this year fingers crossed (Note: This year means any time between 2020-2042), there's a lot of work to do in the sixth form and obviously schoolwork is the priority, I'm not working on the bus full time. So yes, its going to take ages.

Why do you keep rebuilding the bus?
To improve the accuracy and fix any flaws. This model has lasted a long time and is the most accurate rendition to date, so it's most likely the one that'll end up in game.

Are you returning to the community?
Not really. I'm staying clear of Discord and I won't be doing any contribution to the forum other than the occasional update on this bus.
