Hi everyone welcome to the thing I've been working on for the last while.
It is the Dennis Trident Plaxton President, with a Euro 3 Cummins engine and ZF Gearbox. Other engine and gearbox combinations will be added later down the line

What seats will it have?
Generic variants:
Esteban Civic v2
Lazzerini Practico 2845
Scanflex
Linea
Fainsa Cosmic
Rowan Telmac Telford 20

Specs for any future variants will be communicated as they're conceived

What will the templates be like?:

They will be easy templates like that on most modern UK buses The final version will come with a repainter's manual to help you get the best out of repainting the bus. You won't be able to acquire an early version of the template sorry!

Release Date/Beta?:
IDK/No

Will this be finished?
I have every intention to finish it, but it's going to take time

The screens below are very old, and aren't the standard the model is currently. Look at your own risk :P:

First's TNLs are disappearing though, I saw a few for sale on EBay recently, including the re-engined Euro 5 ones. I hope some get preserved and converted back to dual door London spec. There are some TNs and VTs in preservation, the 2 TNs are dual door, VTs are single door. We'll have to see what happens with them.

Shame none of the VTs were dual door when preserved I wanna see one of the TNs in the old first Livery back before TFL implemented the Red rule for all buses

Only two TNL's are still dual door but both are open top and SORN.
Other 22 are single door (5 of those are SORN & 4 have no tax) leaving 13 which are still active
Active: (or at least should be)

LN51 GMG
LN51 GNP

Templating, exterior wise, is happening now, last few niggles to sort out and then things can start going into the game. I thought it would be time to show you planned setvars aside from the seats as we have a few and none have been mentioned yet.

A 3rd LED variant is planned but hasn't been made yet. The rear grilles are also a setvar.

(Note the handrails seen do change to the actual ones used on the moulded seats)
Other planned things include a periscope and marker light positions, aswell as some other things.

I got back to this stage again, I had to fix the front after the last UV map as I realised the proportions were completely wrong but its all there now, the template is getting there, there are a few issues to sort out but the exterior and windows are basically textured now, then it'll be onto interior where we try and brave light maps.

I'm not sure if its the correct way to go or not, but I may not include all shadows, namely ones for setvars like the lights (With the exception of the Metroline LED casing as seen here), to make things easier to repaint. On each exterior template for each variant I do, there may be some toggles for stuff like the Metroline LED casing and the rear vents, so you'll need to make sure you use these if you plan utilising these setvars. For different marker lights/rear lights though, baked shadows are not as important so will be left plain on the template. But don't you worry, I have some plans to see if I can get these shadows to appear nonetheless.

I will be going for the same .dds approach other developers have been going for recently for the outside, and it will be the same with the Class 319 AI train too. I just need to do some research on some stuff still, but be assured I'll include a repainter's manual with the final bus to ensure you know what you are doing. It'll be nothing unusual.

We are starting with the Trident, and unless someone does a B7TL or DB250 before we have the chance, we'll eventually get onto that too.

We may consider assisting developers who would be interesting in making the aforementioned chassis' by lending them models, please PM us, and we will discuss it and get back to you. It is not a guaranteed yes.

Can't wait to drive a President in OMSI 2 as I see a lot of them where I live especially some of the ones mentioned in this forum like LN51 NRL, LN51 GOA, LN51 GOE, LT02 ZBZ, LT02 ZCA and LT02 ZCF
