Stagecoach Bus Request
« on: July 09, 2010, 12:42:24 PM »
I'm a new member.

While I'm playing pak128.britian , I'm thinking
"where is the Stagecoach Bus Group ?"

I hope the maker can make a Stagecoach Bus like Trident or something

Thank you for reading ;D

Welcome to the forum VOLVO and thanks for your interest in pak128.Britain. 

I drew all the buses, but I have to admit I'm not an expert on buses.  I thought stagecoach was an operator rather than a maker of buses.  When I drew the buses I just chose a livery for each of the buses I drew and tried to get some variety.  I'm sure there are a few buses missing but it was never the plan to draw every bus that has ever existed as that would take a lot of time and there would be lots of buses doing the same job.  Because of this, and because I've not really got any time at the minute for simutrans, I won't be making any stagecoach bus for the pak.  If you want to have a go yourself though, that would be great, you can easily modify the existing graphics in a paint program or using blender if you know how/are willing to learn.  All the dats and pngs for the existing vehicles are freely available at sourceforge, and if you want the blender models I am happy to share those too.

Have a look at this thread -
http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=2401.0

there's a link to the sourceforge repository in the first thread.  The E400 should be in there.

Looks good!

Pak128.Britain is open source.  Basicly, if you use some of the existing stuff to make new stuff, you must credit the original author(s) as well.  In the case of the buses, that would be me (James Hood).  If you want to have your work included in the official pak, you also need to give your agreement that your work can be distributed as open source too.

Nice work.  Just a couple of minor comments if I may - it's a little bright compared to the other buses in the pak, especially the red, so maybe you could tone that down a bit. 

Also, for it to go in the pak, I'll need the png and dat files (not the pak file).
