    Notable Features
    - Working school bus lights, with a choosable flash pattern
    - Body on frame construction. The body can slide forwards in a crash, and break off.
    - Working dashboard switches, and custom sounds for emergency door alarm+air pressure alarm.
    - Over 350 total JBeam parts. Look around the part selector for some variation :)
    - Works in bus routes.
    - Working odometer that saves between game sesssions

    User Made Skins / Skin Packs
    GLO's Skins - https://beamng.com/threads/freightliner-fs-65.69915/page-5#post-1156304

    !!KNOWN ISSUES!!
    The side trim/rub rails clip through the body. I can't really fix that unfortunately.
    Upon outwards deformation of the body skirt, the seats clip through the body. I can't really fix that unfortunately.
    The bed clips through the body. I may be able to alleviate this by sacraficing some visuals and making a gap between the rear wall.

    SKINNING INFO
    I've included a "skin kit" in the attachments to assist with making new skins.
    - There is an included "template" skin, which is choosable. This lets you see what parts of the skin image map to what parts of the 3D model.
    - I use Paint.NET for skinning, and therefore have included the layered PDN files I used for each skin.
    - Making a skin is as easy as copy-pasting the template (or any other) skin, and renaming a few things, then editing it.


    HOW TO INSTALL
    - Download the fs65.zip file below
    - Copy it into your Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods folder
    - Enjoy!

    BeamNG school buses have come a long way from the days of the Busfag. This mod is, without a doubt, incredible. It's been a long journey, and the destination has not disappointed. Outstanding work!

    Also, will there ever be manual transmission? Maybe a 6spd, or 10/12spd?

    As someone who drives one of these things in real life, I gotta say this is really really nice! My real life bus is (well was, I get a new one next year) a 2017 Thomas C2 and while there are some differences, so much of this one looks so familiar, even the trashcan held in place with bungee strap. The only thing missing is all the screaming little brats, er, I mean nice little children.

    Great job! :)
