This bus has the X-factor

huehuehuehue :D

 

I'm not sure why that happens.  I will have to adjust the amount the steering wheel travels to make that go away.

 

 

Next version with rear-facing PKM!  :D

 

What's the biggest thing you can run over?  I have been able to push around airplanes on the tarmac.  I suppose it should be able to push big trucks out of the way too :)

I've also add the MLOD's... other modders can have fun making their own versions now :)

 

 

V1.1 w/ rear PKM gunner turret.  Also changed the steering wheel behavior, and changed the driver's mirrors slightly.  Same download place as before!

You know, play testing this against more than 1 infantry and the guys are pretty easy to kill, including the driver.  Going to add some armor panels for v1.2.

Well I'm experimenting with armor plates and the AI *still* can't seem to survive for more than about 100m.  The enemy AI are simply too good at head shots.  I am going to tweak this a little further before releasing.  I've also had to remove the wheel hitpoints since they get shot out too easily... as if the armor plating isn't even there.

Might want to clarify this bit up in the OP so that no one's confused by "You are not allowed to decompile, reverse engineer, or otherwise derive content from this addon"...

I've improved the armor somewhat so even with stupid AI in the passenger seats you don't die quite so easily.  Man the AI is dumb! LOL

 

v1.2 update in the same location (see first post)

 

This should be it, I don't think I'll have any more updates unless something is discovered.  The MLOD's are there, so let's see some battle bus versions you guys!  LOL

Just a heads up: the version on Play withSIX is broken. The files are there, but they're not packaged.
