LOW PART COUNT FOR THOSE INTERESTED Here


WHY WOULD YOU EVEN...


You see I am but a "simple" man, I see a nice picture of a 1970's schoolbus and like any logical person I say to myself:

I should probably make that into a monster truck in simpleplanes

And so I did, weighing in at 90,000Ibs, containing 2300parts. delivering 40,000hp and full of bad puns is the Highest Education Monster bus!

About


When making this I had two goals in mind, putting in an excessive amount of bad puns and jokes, but also to try to make a functional monster truck suspension system. It's not perfect but this is a simplified version of a four axle system.

The bus also features a wheelie bar at the back and in air controls thanks to a gyroscope (can be disabled with AG 8)


This has been the work of nearly a week and while it might not look like it thats because so much time was spent trying to get good reference images or just being at a loss for what to do next, getting the suspension to work even teaching myself how the suspension works.

I also made sure this is could do all the ramps and not blow up everywhere. And to be fair it mostly does as long as you take it easy on the back suspension.
Getting it all to work ended up taking longer than expected because every time I fixed something another part would break. Its almost like the developers programmed the frustration of game dev right into the game!(jk I love you guys)


So I hope it was all worth it, it probably wasn't but whatever!
I sure as hell will do it again! Onto the


CONTROLS

Controls the stop sign and opens the bus doors, I don't know how someone would actually get into the bus but that's besides the point

    @Jonjonplanes whoops I'm tired ok, I meant more of a classic school bus style if you understand what I'm getting at.

    @Jonjonplanes oh yeah heres the link for it, this was back on a much older version of simpleplanes so i was way more limited on what i could do

    @Jonjonplanes Yeah that actually served as inspiration of sorts.
    Way back I made that exact monster truck in simpleplanes so this time round I attempted to one up myself and create my own monster buss design with an older school bus as a chassi and everything else ramped up to the extreme :)
