Success Module will be activated automatically at next reboot Do you wish to activate the module now? (y/n)y Module activated
But I can live with that for now. Main thing is, it works.
The current .blend file is now hosted on this server, and is available here. If you prefer, or want to use some kind of automation via a script, you can download this from the command-line by typing: wget thefan.uk/blends/sheffield-fps-city-centre.blend
Soon I will set up a Downloads page to host this, and any other subsequent downloads in the future – but for now – this’ll have to do.
I had started a high-resolution render to run, where I would sleep through. Alas, I didn’t sleep:
Set up SFTP for file transfers to and from the Thefan server
These are the textures imported with Blenderkit, which also increase the projects file-size with high resolution images. As nice as they look, for the sake of being able to compile, and for diskspace reasons – I’ve had to strip them out and will retexture the building manually using simpler UV textures.
The ADL Enivro 400 – a bus I’m sure you’d recognise wherever in the UK (and perhaps, world) you live in.
For assets such as this, moving forward: I’ll place an explorable 3D model at the top – and below will be the development process.
This is by no means complete. First, I will need to model as far as I can using symmetry on either side: on the side facing us, we have the door to the bus, and on the drivers side would be their cabin.
On the side facing away from us, there’s an emergency exit, too. I will need to complete the back of the bus before applying the Mirror modifier and making the respective changes on each side.
Back section of the bus
Doors and windows
Bars on the top section
Front portion of registration plate area
Headlights, indicators and rear lights
Interior of both floors
Front roof section
I’ll have more work to do on this when the Mirror modifier is applied, and I can make changes to one side without it being duplicated on the other.
Updates will be sparse or non-existent today, I’m taking a mental health day.
I’ve added some basic colouring to make it look a little less plain, and to look more like a First bus: the orange sections are where advertising panels (and registration plates) will go. This is as complete as it’s going to get today.
