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:

Arriva had some plaxton presidents up here they had the Volvo B7TL chassis on ours. Good buses, I think they was at Selby and Heckmondwike depots for most of their lives. Nice buses, but I preferred the ALX 400's we had though.

Its been a long time since I have viewed this topic. But would you know if a London dual door spec will follow later? If this was the case then perhaps many of the First London and Metroline versions could be done as those are the ones that spring to mind :) . If this is the case then I would assume it would be popular for the London map.

Mr. Mostochio has made all the mouldings for a London variant already, and we will be adding them after the 10.5 metre generic versions are done.

Progress is slow because I have college and some other projects to attend to, plus my PC has some issues. I may have to make a temporary install onto my laptop for the sake of dev only, it should run Grundorf okay, which is all I need for adding and testing features until promotional pictures need taking later down the line.

Here's a new and more detailed roof, which has been done along with various other improvements to the accuracy of this bus. The interior is still there, its just in the main file, this is a file I'm using for now to bake the bus using only the meshes I need.

That looks grand and please take your time and don't be tempted to rush mate. The wait will be well worth it and looking at those windows. I think the V-HBY, Y-NLK and other versions like the KN52 and the LK03 examples could be done unless those regs are for the Volvo B7TL variant that is the 10.6m chassis. If so, please accept my apologies and disregard those regs :). In truth, I never really took an interest in the real Plaxton President Tridents when I was in London between 2014/2015 as the buses were mostly ALX400's where I lived but I wish I had done now! 😂 .

Keep up the great work none the less and if this render is anything to go by. Its another high quality bus to spoil myself with in a future let's play video.

And at last, these are done, yet another custom new seat for the President (and eventually the ALX200)! These are era-appropriate Lazzerini Practico 2840 (high back) and 2845 (low back). These were used up until 2010, until they were superseded by the 3840/5, which have no lower seat base and a different leg design

Lots of work was done recently to bring these down to acceptable poly levels, being very curvy seats it was quite a task but they do look the part! All the planned seat variants for the President are now sorted, and like I said, you'll be able to plug and play them on every generic variant. After all, customisability is a key point of a modern OMSI bus, and there will be plenty of exterior and interior setvars to boot.

That's amazing news, thanks! :D
The seats look great as well!
Can't wait for the eventual release. 😊

Edit: The roof looks great too! I missed that post.
