    A new mod for BeamNG inspired by MAN Lion's City, low floor bus.
    Currently there are three versions beening developed:
    - 18,75m long double Fox GL
    - 14,7m long single Fox L
    - 12m long single Fox NL

    Everything made from scratch. There is a plenty of things to be done, but I hope it will be worth waiting.
    If you have something to contribute with, feel welcome to do so. This type of vehicle will surely be fun to drive.

    Project name: Fox
    Tools:
    - Blender 3d
    - Inkscape
    - Gimp

    The mods are on wheels and drives, but all the components are simplified, need more work and attention.
    Things made so far:
    - suspension
    - engine
    - body beams
    - wheels
    - basic mesh, with no details

    This looks pretty cool. Do you have any plans for implementing the bendy part?

    Looks pretty cool. A bus is always cool to crash.

    It is a challange to make it working properly, the rear part make the bus unstable, just like a regular trailer would do. At the moment I use shock absorbers to make it more stable, I can drive up to 60km/h and still keeping control. But it needs further improvement, I will try to implement swing bars. In real life there is a hydraulic that makes the bening part working as expected.

    It looks like Volkswagen Fox, it is not Fox GL.

    This thing has multiple engines, including hybrids and CNG, but I am planning to implement the standard one 320hp diesel engine.

    Is there any chance that some of the other engines will eventually be included?

    No, I do not think it is needed. The diesel seems to be is optimal.
