N230UD!! My favourite bus that I've been been on, well the twin door London variant, but I just can't believe that someone is making it in OMSI. One of the things I kinda like when the bus has it's a cooling fan on as well as a kickdown going up an incline.

wow!! this is looking amazing. i was wondering if you had any plans to, after all the different variations are finished, slice off the top to turn it into a (i can't remember the exact name) single decker omnicity?? i know that one was started but never finished. really enjoying it so far anyway!!

Single Deckers go to the suffix UB" :)
So I suppose you mean CN/N230UB?
Edit: autocorrect had a field trip there, sorry.

yes the CN230UB. i'm thinking about building a CN94UB for use on a portsmouth map I might (very small chance) be making. anyway, enough about me haha. this bus is looking great.
That would be amazing! The best I’ve got is a CN94UB LHD blueprint in blender 🤣
So if you know how to make one, please do! I’d love to see one!
Remember CN94UB have square front and rear lights ;)

yes I love the front and rear lights haha. those buses are my childhood - I find it so sad that they're being withdrawn on first solent soon. ugh even the smell of the engine while it idles is iconic to me haha. about the blueprint, is there any chance you could send it to me?? feel free to message me haha.

The cooling fans on the London variants are awesome. The louder, the better imo. A route in my area uses them and a lot of them have cooling fans active: some lower, and some louder.

Loud cooling fans, I can’t stand them.
A majority of our N270UD OmniDekkas have the loudest cooling fan you could ever know, really gives me a bad headache.
It’s a shame because N270 sound absolutely lovely too.

Well 3 routes in my are have N230UDs as well as the N94UD assigned to them one of them is, well was my school bus route. Though London United are slowly withdrawing some from use or transferring them to other garages or to London Sovereign.

Oh no, it seems thoughts of smoked meats have caused me to drift into a slumber of not updating my thread for several months...

Repainters are free to create liveries once the bus is further into development. Different specifications will not be made, bar some seating options and interior setvars in some updates; This is with the exception of significantly different variations such as Airport vehicles and TfL specification buses. These specifications may be considered, but a lack of creation resources or uses for them renders them unlikely to be made.

How did you cut the holes into the rims?
There's a number of ways, booleans, knife cutting, in my case, I just modelled around them intiially, and then used boolean in the low poly version.

I actually did this a while ago already, options for grilles as well as where the side destinations are, are present on the model. I'm not sure what having and not having these exterior grilles changes inside the bus however, as the air cooling box above the stairs seems to be present in all models.

And in general with the bus, I've been busy with work, A levels, and university, so progress is slow of course, but it is happening. My discord server has further updates on it's progress.

Nice seeing an updated from you mate. Glad this is still in the works.
