I've done this minibus: Mercedes 881D. It's quite balanced and its capacity is 56 passengers. I'll do some more, so you have to wait for a few days.. :P

That looks pretty nice.

Painter, in and out of retirement.

Nice minibus. And nice colors though.  ;D

Thanks... I applied SSS (SubSurface Scattering) to improve the image quality, but I'm afraid it's difficult to realize about it at 64pak scale.

Of course it's difficult. After rescaling it will be hard to make out the differences between Mercedes and something like Iveco Daily or Ford Transit.
But i'm sure you will accomplish your work magnificent.  8)

Then try it out 96px. ;-)

Well, I haven't rescale it... ::).... I rendered it direct to 64pak scale. On the other hand, I must say that the color scheme would be perfect for 96pak, but I would have to render it with a toon style. I might try it...

Actually i mean the same. Rescaling the scale. Wrong wording, sorry.  ;D

Another one, MCW MetroRider MF150. It has less capacity than the Mercedes Benz (50 pass)

Another one. Nissan Coaster C9 (32 pass. -- 55 km/h) with Macao color scheme.

Steyr CityBus S. It's supposed to be electric (engine_type=battery). 28 passengers.

Great busses! But I think for more than 20 passengers we need a loaded bus picture with people cluttered on the roof and on the sides of the vehicle. But again they are very fine and your decision between realism and playability!

;)

It's a great idea, but I hope you don't want something like this in Simutrans... ::)

Escala Real...a blog about Simutrans in Spanish...

jbode

Nay, this would not be visible anyway ... Only funny for "us", the overfed and overprotected developed countries, not really funny for people in countries where there is a need to squeeze into the public transport to get somewhere ...

It also happens in subway trains (Tokio, Madrid, NY and many other cities around the world)...anyway, I'll try out something, just for curiosity.

That photo looks suspiciously familiar. I know some lines here that go in 3 minute interval and look like this in rush hour.

Sometimes it's not even a question of having more vehicles, but building other modes of transport when there is not way to do that. Streets here are quite narrow, compared to Vienna or Berlin or... well you get the idea, in centre they often don't have more than 10m across, which is bad when you have to squeeze in all the cars, two sidewalks, two tram lanes, and whatever else. And bulldozing some of city houses isn't an option :)

Back to topic... any idea how they look in final size?

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!

vilvoh

Next one will be Ikarus EAG E91. I'm still gathering the technical info.

Escala Real...a blog about Simutrans in Spanish...

vilvoh

I've finished the Ikarus. I've chosen the electric version. In addition, here you have the Mercedes Benz o814.They're very small about 33-37 passengers, but I think the Ikarus is my best work until now (I'm talking about this pak, of course.. :P)

Next one will be this Nissan Civillian WBX. Only two more to finish...

Some of them fit in the scale, others are bigger than I would like to.... :-\

Instead of the Mercedes Benz o304, I'm going to create this Mitsubishi Fuso RS, and probably 4 or 5 versions of Hino Poncho.

Last preview before the last release... ;D....Hino Poncho Short series (128pak scale)

Mitsubishi Fuso RS -- 31 passengers -- 55 kw -- 82 km/h -- 5 tn

This is the last one...Hino Poncho series. I'll do some more but by now I would like to start other projects (freight planes, road trains, etc...)

Just two things. I'll try to create a tutorial about how to make buses with Blender. I've realized that it's really easy to make them. It usually takes me an hour and a half o two to design, model, texturize, render and fix the images. And I think you don't need any special skills or experience with Blender. So I think that a tutorial about this would be a good way to encourage people to create objects for Simutrans with Blender. I'll publish the tutorial in the blog (Escala Real) but I do not discard to create some kind of guide (with Ormac help... ::))

The last thing. If someone wants to port them to 128pak, I've the Blender files and the textures (they're small, about 200-300KB including the texture) So send me a PM and I will send you the graphic sources.

Alex. Brose

I am wondering if you could put those tenderly buses in a zip-file?
I'll post them on my website.

vilvoh

#30
You mean an all-in-one zip file? yes, of course

Escala Real...a blog about Simutrans in Spanish...

Alex. Brose

Thank you.
Sorry for my unclear words.

Bautiful buses! Only the one with blue windows is a bit unnatural.

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!

vilvoh

#34
(That's the Mercedes Benz o814) What do you exactly mean with unnatural? out of scale?

Escala Real...a blog about Simutrans in Spanish...

VS

No, the blue window colour. But you can always pretend it is an ad over the whole vehicle - the kind with small holes through which you can see out but not in :)

Oh, that....well, I couldn't use dark windows because the result was too dark. I've a general rule for this kind of situations that says dark object --> light windows and viceversa. It usually works for me... :)

kylearalar

you can also make  Toyota Coaster and a Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa
Simutrans Pinoy Player

vilvoh

You owned me!  ;D In fact, the Nissan coaster should appear as Toyota Coaster and the Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa was renamed as Mitsubishi Fuso Rs (Rosa) I gathered a lot of images, so I guess I mixed the names of the vehicles.
