For a while now, a certain company has been very under-represented in the UK OMSI community. Not many repaints have been released bearing their liveries. That company is Transdev.

I aim to change that. The Transdev Blazefield repaint megapack includes various liveries from a variety of Transdev operations, for example:
  • Blackburn (The Blackburn Bus Company/Lancashire United)
  • Burnley (Transdev in Burnley & Pendle)
  • Harrogate (The Harrogate Bus Company)
  • Keighley (The Keighley Bus Company)
  • York (Transdev in York, Yorkshire Coastliner and CityZap)
This repaint pack will include liveries from every town listed above, across the ages (I will attempt to do every single variation that has happened, but no promises). While all repaints are faithfully re-created and made as accurately as possible to its real-life counterpart, there may be some instances where repaints would be fictional/semi-fictional as the appropriate bus has not been released for OMSI (such as the Plaxton President), or any other various limitations I may come across.

Here's a little taster as to what you would expect from this pack:

(Big up @danielc2525 for baking the Harrogate Gemini 2 repaint for me! ;))

I will start with Yorkshire first, then transcend onto Lancashire. I hope to include every single subsidiary's liveries in this pack. However there may be a few instances where I couldn't get enough reference pictures to accurately re-create the repaint. Depending on the availability, I may have to "merge", miss bits out or drop the repaint completely.

Feel free to leave me tips, tricks, suggestions and constructive criticism. This thread will be updated quite a bit as I create new repaints to add to the list.

Don't expect this to be released any time soon. There are dozens upon dozens of liveries Transdev has/had.
(Oh, and every time someone says "when will this be released", "can I have a beta please" or leaves non-constructive criticism, the release date gets pushed back a week.)

If you have any kind of high-quality Transdev logos, decals, seat textures, handrails, etc, I would love to have the opportunity to use them in the pack. Please PM me them if you're willing to! (You will get full credit upon release).

Any screenshots I post in this thread are purely WIP and are subject to change and may not represent the final product.

Thank you for your time! :)

FAQ:
Q: When will this be released?
A: There's a lot of stuff to do, so I can't give a 100% exact release date. So please don't bother asking for one.

Q: How will this be released?
A: Due to the probable big size, it's likely I'll release this in waves. So for example I will release each division separate to each other. Nothing is final however.

I may well be wrong here, but last time I heard, repaints for the B7L Eclipse 1 were not allowed in the downloads centre...
Just had a look through the requirements, nothing mentioning the Eclipse 1 there, unless I'm looking in the wrong place. If it was announced, my apologies, I seem to have missed it. Could a staff member confirm this for me? Thanks.

It was something said on Discord, I remember that, but whether it became a reality or not :) Don't really matter, just upload it and see what they say...

Yeah, I don't have Discord so I kinda can't see what was going on in there. It's not a huge problem if it isn't allowed, I'll just have to convert everything to the 1.5 version. :sweatsmile:

This is what is going to be 1823 YJ07 PBU. Got the writing on it, need to add the clipart onto it now.

(In real life, this bus was originally with Keighley but seems to have been transferred to Harrogate now, therefore in the pack it will be listed under Transdev Harrogate).

The problem with the B7L Eclipse 1 is that (at least last I heard) it's not available to download anywhere. That means that none of the moderators can download it to test the submissions on, so they only way they can be tested is if someone already happens to have the bus. Secondly, anyone who sees the repaints in the download centre or in screenshots is not going to be able to download the bus except through re-uploads that are without the author's permission.

So, say I uploaded a repaint for the Eclipse 1 now, would it be denied because they can't test it, or would it be accepted given that the screenshots are okay and files checked for any irregularities?

If you've been following the General Screenshots thread, you can see that I've been working hard on the #the1 repaint!

It's nearly complete! I only need to add in a couple more logos and details and it's done.

(The white desties are likely not to be included in the download as I'm not sure if I need permission to release them).

I've also tried putting the front logo to where it is in real life (over the W logo) but I can't find the texture for the white/chrome, so unfortunately I can't make an exact 100% replica (well, it was never one anyway due to the bus being a B7RLE in real life). And the interior is a bit of a problem as I tried editing the dashboard textures but the baking of it just seems to go away when I'm adjusting the hue.

However, limitations aside, I'm thinking about releasing this repaint as a taster as to what you'd expect to see in this pack quality-wise.

Loving that repaint, looks so real!

Yup, I'll try to include as many of the older liveries as I can to the best of my ability.
That's great, if you need any help or repaints for the C400R, I might be able to help as the C400R and Volvo B7L Eclipse 1 & Eclipse 1.5 are the only buses I know how to repaint :D
