v1.2, see changelog
Here is a 1st Generation Bluebird Vision for under your tree! (or in your mods directory...)
The 1st Generation Vision was a type C bus made by BlueBird from 2003 – 2007.
-Animated props (including openable e-door and roof hatches)
-Changeable seat and floor color textures*
-District name on the side of the bus
-Selectable 8-way types (dropdown in the spawn menu)
Here's a trailer courtesy of pw721
-Fixed the left veer
-Added reflection in driver mirror
This should be the final final version!
In the future...
Currently I'm working on updating the bus to utilize some of the new features RoR has added. Right now, there are a few broken features, so expect an update to this bus as soon as we see a stable 0.4 release.
*You can download different seat/floor textures here: Brown Black Green Red Blue Here is the PSD for the district name, making editing it with the same font easy.

PM me with any questions or comments. No mods, however, you may distribute customized textures, no permission needed.
This is a Thomas Saf-T-Liner HDX and my first vehicle I have done all of the work getting it in game.
This is (as far as I know) RoR's first flexbody school bus!
The project is ongoing, so expect issues followed by fixes that cause other issues.
(Official Release 1.0)
~Put the roof running lights back (still haven't placed the rear ones)
~Brought back proper collision (now collision doesn't cause weird shaking)
~The front wheel meshes aren't balanced (noticeable at high speeds).
~The bus is larger than most buses. I should have scaled it better when I had the chance.
~Rear 3 red running lights haven't been placed yet.
~Deformation isn't very realistic.
Ever since I joined RoR I've loved modding buses, and am one of the few 'bus people' who is sick of seeing a *BRAND NEW* CE300 mod every week... In order to make up for it I decided to make my own bus that was different, original, and somewhat high quality for my experience level. So I decided to make an HDX, because type D's are rare in RoR and it is very easy to model.
Don't bust my chops about it, its my first vehicle I've ever made.
-Animated props (including openable e-door and driver window)
-Flexbody (non-FPS versions)
-Changeable textures all over the bus (main body color, roof color, rim color, seat color [comes with pre-packaged seat textures], window color/tint, crossing guard front color, and bus #.
-TC, ABS [off by default], Slopebrake
-Working fans and other random animated props (after 39.7 is released)
-Under-body (currently there are no axles or anything)
-Fix the spikes on the bottom of the mirror
-Other small adjustments
-Convert all textures to DDS (my DDS plugin for photoshop doesn't work so it is easier to save as png for quicker editing)
