Hey there everyone,

As some of you might know, two years ago or so, I started briefly making a Wright Eclipse Gemini 1 out of the Gemini 2 with permission from the original maker. As of a year ago, I decided to put nearly all of my time into it. It started from a simple front edit of the Gemini 2 to make it look like a B9TL Gemini 1, however now, It's become a full blown remaster project for the Gemini 2 also.

Here's what it will end up including (so far):
  • A completely remastered interior, fully baked and a lot more detailed than the older version of the bus.
  • New Templates (both interior and exterior!)
  • A remastered Exterior with some fixes to make it look as close to the real life buses as possible.
  • Remastered Dashboard (maybe).
  • Completely new sounds.
  • Civic V2 Seats for the B9TL Gemini 1.
  • Better Civic V3 Seats for the B9TL Gemini 2.
  • New lighting effects.
  • New Krueger destinations.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q: Will this project be put on hold like the Eclipse Urban was?
A: No, it won't. However it will take time to finish.

Q: How long will this take to release?
A: There's no set date for completion for this, as I'm just doing it in my spare time, most likely over a year or more, who knows.

Q: Can I have beta?
A: No, a team will be selected in the future, and I probably know who It'll be already.

Q: Will this bus be Payware?
A: Definitely not, as the original Gemini 2 model isn't mine, plus a remaster of an original bus shouldn't be payware anyways, since the original bus wasn't payware.

Looks amazing! From the blender files, they already look realistic! Good luck!

They are looking amazing - can't wait to drive my local double deckers! Good luck with the project :)

A little update with the new baked Gemini 2 interior.

Note: This is still WIP and has some bugs still, for example the white headrests on seats and the white rear of the disabled backrest!
