New city bus
« on: May 27, 2012, 03:49:18 PM »
Hi,
I've created a modern bus, which is intended as a slow, expensive and not very powerful city bus.  ;)
But it's pros are the cheap running costs, and its fuel cell engine (which is totally rare in pak128).
I hope, my bus will be perhaps accepted to go into the pakset...  :)
Reviews are welcome.

Nice one! I hope it makes it to the pakset, as there is shortage of post 2000 busses.

Thanks for all your feedback, I was very happy about it  :)

possibly a trolly bus version? ;)

Cool idea, why not?
I try to create a trolley version soon, so I have to think about the .dat in both versions again.
Probably the "normal" bus gets then a more powerful engine for intercity transports
and will be a bit more expensive in running costs.

Nice bus Christian! Very clean design indeed :)

Well, it's still possible. Switch to 192 size and you'll have lot of pixels available for painting :P

That's why I once chose the pak192.comic.  ;)

The articulated- and trolley versions are finished, but the second one should only be an addon,
because for me it doesn't seem realistic. I prefer the normal version :).
(btw, am i allowed to use the electrification of TommPa9 and VS?)

Articulated trolley is pretty normal. But then, there is this crazy articulated trolley bus.

I didn't meant, that articulated trolley buses aren't normal.
I meant, that my bus doesn't look so realistic as a trolley bus. Sorry, this was a bit unclear...

Now all versions are finished and can be tested; The dat-files are geared to the current nightly version.
Are the values of the vehicles okay or too strange?

Do I handle including this, or is there someone else who wants to do it?

Edit: I mean, it is very nice, and after checking the scale, it appears to fit the other vehicles visually well... what more can I wish as far as the graphics are concerned? ;)
