Here's my current project - A greyhound bus - far from finished
I chose this one because I felt this is yet another model that is missing from the game.

I am looking for a good name for this p.o.s. I could go with "Greyhound" but something like "Browncoyote" would fit better tounge.gif - or anything to that effect. Any ideas?

Progress is slow and "artistic" because I lack reference pics... if anybody has pics of the interior (or even the undercarriage and engine room - yeah right tounge.gif ) of the MCI 9 - 12 series busses, please share 'em.

I'm planning on adding some "Mad Max" style wheel covers and armor plating on the windows to one version of the bus ( as extra) - Los Santos local transportation tounge.gif

Some perspective shots of the "ugly" in the makes:

Looks great so far. It's style fits SA time frame quite well.

For the name, Paledog?
Or Blackpooch...
Brownpup.... maybe mix a few of those up...
Browncoyote sounds good, but kinda long.

The BrownStreak bus service maybe? Run by the same company as the trains...
That actually bares a striking resemblance to the original SA bus, maybe you could have just modded the original bus? rofl biggrin.gif
Only joking, scratch work's always better.
Yeah, I agree too, good to see something other than a super fast sports car/motorbike.

Now I just need to do the engine and undercarriage and the modeling is finished. ( Well, maybe the dash board could use some more shape as well.)
And I decided to call "the big ugly" as "Bluepooch" - I think it sounds nice tounge.gif

Thanks for the input

I personally would stick with a real name like greyhound. Other than that it has good detail and texture. Where the destination sign on a grey hound is you could make a few extras and have the sign change from bus to bus. Not sure if you thought of it but I thought it would be a cool feature. Also are you going to make enterable?

You should call it 'Dash-Hound' - thats the GTA version of this vehicle that was going to be in SA in the first place. The model is not in the game files but search GTA3.IMG for DACH.TXD and take a look at it for the logo wink.gif

Very cool. I worked for Greyhound for a bit, so I can say this is REALLY close. My only nitpick (because I know about them) would be the luggage compartments on either side near the bottom. Obviously not openable, but maybe some detail in the texture.

Other than that minor nitpick, this is really, REALLY good. I love the "old" look you gave it; it totally looks like a 90's era bus, while at the same time fitting into the SA world.

And Bluepooch is cute. smile.gif

lovin the greyhound wink.gif road in one half way across Canada and I never want to again lol. The body texture is amazing, as is the level of detail used on the body and the interior.

Anyways I thought of a cool name for it, maybe GOLDEN RETRIEVER? BLUE POOCH doesn't do it for me lol, or even call it PUG, only cause I love those dogs! maybe BLOODHOUND? just somthin cool like that.

keep up the good work!

k, bye
