Asheville Orion Diesel Bus

First and foremost, a very special thanks to Gwail for the use of his "NYC MTA - Orion Bus VII" upload, namely the CNG model.

Here's an old diesel bus from Asheville's transit system "Asheville Redefines Transit" fitted onto Gwai's CNG model. The bus sports the old color scheme used by the transit system - a maroon stripe on a white bus, with an Asheville City Hall insignia in the stripe. These buses were acquired in the early/mid nineties, and have recently been replaced with more fuel efficient diesel-electrics, and hybrid-electrics (possibly coming soon to a STEX near you?? :P ).

A little information behind the details: The banner on the front is "Ingles", a major local grocery store chain in Western North Carolina and the surrounding areas. The side banner is from last year's TEDx Asheville, for those of you who are familar with TED talks and TEDx programs. "Tunnel Road" is a 4 lane road that leads out of downtown Asheville and heads south to the Asheville Mall. It's one of the more popular bus routes in the system.

3D Model: Gwail
Textures: Nilo7

Installation Notes: Two models are included, an version that adds the bus to your game, and a version that will replace the default bus. Pick one of the two and put it in "My Documents" --> "SimCity 4" --> "Plugins"

"Add" Model: Yes
"Replace" Model: Yes
Dimensions: 256x256

See Readme for more istallation/uninstallation guidelines.

Feel free to PM me (Nilo7) with any questions or feedback regarding this model or some of my past uploads. ^_^

      Reworked February 2018: Please demolish existing versions in your city, and delete your old version from your plugins folder.
      The Transit enabling switches were also updated.
      This is a quickie, basically modeled in just a few minutes, a recreation of the remaining concrete bus sheds from my city Haugesund, Norway in the 70's.
      I've  always sort of liked these, so I wanted to put them in the game.
      Works like any bus stop
      Power: 1
      15000 Street
      20 000 Road
      Plop cost roughly 600.
      Requires the overlay textures from Deadwood's bus stop pack, if you don't want these, run the installer.
      And then delete the files EXCEPT the road textures afterwards!

      I want to use RandyE pretty little bus loop. When I plop the roas like in the STEX picture it works fine. But... see pics.
      no prob. :

      still no prob :


      I remember having a similar problem with one of SHK paying parkings, a 2x2 ; if I didn't plop the road first and the lot afterwards, it went crooked like this. No such luck here.
      No big deal, the lot can be dressed up so that the problem doesn't have to arise, but why does it do that ? I 'd like to understand (a fatal flaw, sometimes, when playing SC4...)

      NAM makes Sims travel much further for work than ever before. But what if they run out of gas?
      Don't worry any longer, take Fantozzi's truck stops instead.
      This download offers two slightly different plopable lots, each 4x10 tiles in size, you find in the misc. transportation menu to place them left and right of your avenue or RHW or road or whatever.
      They offer 28/29 CS$$ jobs and have a slight positive effect over 35 tiles on commercial growth and cost 3600 simeoleons to plop.
      The lots are transit enabled and can be connected with OWR. It's stongly recommended to use SC4fix together with the truck stops .
      This lotwork requires 6 dependencies:
      SFBT ARAL Gas Station
      Ceafus 88 Burger King v2.0
      SHK Parking Pack 1.2
      KOSC SuperSHK MEGA Parking Textures
      Was NL Props (Dutch Prop Pack)
      SCF_European Truck Pack
      In case you like what you see consider to rate/vote for the original content creators.
      Bon voyage.
