this looks pretty good ngl
I have a suggestion, when you do the red and amber lights for the bus, you should program them to use the beacon/siren lights button. It'll be more convenient and much better than the controls on the Dansworth bus.
I was thinking of writing my own little system for that, activated by a control, that'd let you define light patterns in a jbeam file (so people could release mods to add patterns for example)
Finally something to fill the large void under the hood. The CAT C7!

Noice. That’s actually looking really good.
One thing I've noticed when it comes to school bus engines is that they generally have a spaghetti-like appearance...
(Found via Bing because Google Images is freaking worthless these days...)
I6-Turbo engines do seem to be a common power source it seems, so the model will certainly fit the bill. Not entirely sure you want to "spaghettify" the engine; that's probably not worth the trouble.
Both the Caterpillar C7 and the MBE900 (will be done too) are power plants actually used in the FS65. I've looked at a bunch of these and there's not too much "spaghetti" going on.
See this channel if you want to see some examples. They've posted multiple FS-65's with CAT C7 installed
I think its also down to the lack of a radiator, all the tubing for that will add quite a bit more detail and textures will help a lot also. There is a lot of wiring around the firewall on these buses but as it is the engine is already like double the poly count of comparable official vehicle engines so I don't want to add too much more, although I guess some of that could be added to the body of the bus as the official cars do.
Good to know. I'll have to keep that in mind should I need it for future reference.
On an unrelated note, I found out that there's a few places on the East Coast (United States) that are debuting electric school buses. Didn't look too far into this, but there has at a minimal been trials carried out and I think a few districts might have even placed orders already!
Hey it's kinda under its own power now
