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)

Here is the school bus pack some of you have asked me about. I've changed it up a bit for some variety. Most are Blue Bird bodies but there is a Carpenter and a Thomas as well. They drive pretty realistically.Here is the lineup:
1986 Blue Bird International S-1800 with an International Navistar 9.0L V8 Diesel and an Allison MT-643 transmission
1990 Blue Bird International 3800 with an International Navistar DT360 Turbocharged 5.9L Inline six cylinder Diesel and an Allison AT-545 transmission
1988 Blue Bird International S-1700 with an International Navistar 7.3L V8 Diesel and an Allison AT-545 transmission
1996 Blue Bird GMC CV200 with a 366ci GM gasoline V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
1985 Carpenter Chevrolet C/60 with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel Turbocharged V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
1985 Blue Bird GMC 6000 with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
2007 Blue Bird International SBCV 3300 with an International Navistar DT466 7.6L Turbocharged Inline six cylinder Diesel and an Allison PTS 2500 transmission
1979 Thomas International S-1700 with an International Harvester 345ci gasoline V8 engine and an Allison AT-545 transmission
This is a pretty large file and is very sound file intensive. There have been conflicts with the other school bus files with sounds not working properly or at all. These buses are not perfect and do not use any meshes that have not been seen already.
These are my Winnebago's I have been working on for a couple of months. Instead of basing them on a particular year, I just used the styling cues of the early 70's. More or less if these were real I would call them licensed reproductions(Though not really Licensed). Yes, they are made in sketch... But I feel that it is one of my best mods ever. Please keep the sketch comments to your self, I would really appreciate it. Now on to the credits...
