    This currently is a glitch, when the bus is not being used it will glitch out within 5-10min, I have to track down what is causing this. In fact there are alot of bugs.

    Bugs List:
    • Glitches within 5-10min when idle
    • Steers to the left horribly
    • Wobbly when driving over 45mph
    • wheel hubs explode when adjusting hub radius under 35
    I want to fix all of these problems before another release. May take a few weeks because I have to track down all the problems myself.. or you can help :p

    Do you think you can make a regular city/coach bus from this? Thanks.

    Make the front suspension stronger, considerably (by maybe 3-6x stronger), and the driveshaft stronger. Frame deforms properly. glitches happen due to suspension parts near the wheels especially the front.
    This is a really great bus, aside of it being hard to steer, maybe stiffening up the place where the wheels mount to might fix some of the issues with it. I mean, it's a bus, it's not a minivan, so yeah it's going to be 'tough' to drive. I've driven vehicles this size already, they're way different than a car or small residential truck that's for sure.
    Just stick with it, and possibly borrow some of the figures from the commercial trucks for the front suspension (I know it's based off the big truck series already). Try editing one value set at a time and check it out in-game.
    Please give it a steering-wheel.

    Plus more updates to the bus, wobbling at above 45mph is fixed and a lot of jbeam structure improvements!

    Yay, flat nose bus, a bus configure isn't a bus configure without a flat nose

    Very good, but glass didn't break and you can only choose alloy wheels.
    But steering works good now!

    Thanks! I'll be adding support for multiple wheels on the next update, breaking glass will be added down the road but its harder with this many windows, I'll have to find a way to simplify it.

    Also stigs are still planned (Driver with passengers) will be added in future updates

    Love the new deformation(good job) but why does the engine have 1034hp?? most buses only have around 200hp, also the derby engine has WAY more horsepower than it says (did you get horsepower and torque confused?)
    also 5000 rpm redline???? most buses will only go 4000 rpm max
    one last thing, why is the gearing so strange?? some are uber short and some are uber long

    The engines are a mess right now, I still have to learn gearing, torque, horsepower etc. I basically threw a bunch of numbers together that looked like they should work.

    what I want is a stock bus engine 250 hp, A Derby engine 475hp and a Drag engine with about 1047hp. I'll have to take a look at the wiki and read some tutorials on how to properly set up engines, for now I have no clue about that stuff :p
