    (I was actually born in the Soviet Union; can't say this looks especially authentic... granted, I'm Russian and there were way more republics to the USSR than Russia, so maybe it was a design common in Georgia...)

    Whatever. I speak Russian (and read Cyrillic as a result). So I can't help but wonder why a single bus stop has a sign saying "busstops". Plural and without a space.

    This must mean that a constant stream of bus stops will never gonna stop! 

    Wouldn't the correct sign read "автобусная остановка"? The republics of the Soviet Union did some "interesting" architectural experiments, mostly on their monuments. The Soviets rebuilt downtown Yerevan in Armenia using rose colored tuff, a volcanic stone, because they wanted a pink city!

    Well Russian architecture has always been quite colorful:

    I'm old enough to remember when Greyhound buses and Trailways buses actually had bus stops near the small town I lived in, usually at the cheapest national chain hotel in town. It was only about a 700 mile one way ticket a couple of times but it was the only affordable way to travel a long distance if you didn't have a car. 700 miles took 2 days to travel and after 2 days they are more uncomfortable than a plane flight. Cost was almost $200 if I remember right and that was about 40 years ago.

    but at least those bathrooms are spacious :)

    Many of which have toilets with their lids fused on. @[email protected] 

     

  • Yes, also plenty of "puddles" props to go with the sealed toilets.

    It's like a bad game of the Sims.

    Indeed they are, many are big enough to fit one or more bus stops.

    Actually in the U.S. for Intercity travel having bus stops but no busses is pretty authentic...

    Haha^

    Seriously though I agree, for the amount of bus stops There is a very strange lack of a relatable American or Eurpopean style moden Transit Buses. There are some nice models around the web on squid and what have you, (few have detailed interiors.)  Aside from the Routemaster here I've not seen anything too hot in the DS./ Poser market.

    Might be something I can look at over the summer break since im in the mood for doing some more propsets.

    A bendy/Articulated bus might be an interesting rigging challenge for me :) Now that ive said that out loud someone will proabably beat me to the punch.... often the way lol.

    I think Soviet Bus Stops were a sort of mini art form in themselves, a way in which the architects could be imaginative and whacky without ruffling feathers:

    There is a German bus at least: https://sharecg.com/v/72142/gallery/11/Poser/Linienbus

    Made by mausel; he's excellent.

    Nice exterior, but the interior is very basic, interiors are probably slightly more useful than exteriors on something of that scale (since most renders tend to be figure-centric.)

    I guess a bus is not too different to a train and you make great trains yes

    The lack of buses is kind of a pain. I bought one at Renderosity that was nice on the outside but I had to use Geometry Editor to strip the inside because it was designed to accommodate people without any feet.

    I also made a bus stop and shelter about 10 years ago, but in my defence, it was just a couple of props in a pretty large Streets set.

    Er.... Guilty, M'Lud! But I plead temporary insanity induced by too much time spent in 3d max!

    I make no apology for the bus stops, gates.. graveyards.. they always sell well.  Personally speaking too, I find them really interesting little pieces of architecture.

    For atonement now you have to make a bus, I mean, you can probably spend to much time in 3d max with that as well ;)

    Same here, although mine was basically a building on a street. (I thought it was quite funny putting a mortuary on the corner of Burke & Hare, but nobody else got the joke, lol)

    This is one of the more entertaining threads I've read in a while.  :)

    Might I also add DAZ's obsession with satin and leather shaders, studio apartments that no one but CEOs and movie stars could ever afford, and what seems to be the same one-piece fantasy outfit with boots over and over for every generation.

    Yeah, I was planning on collecting all the DAZ Originals / PC+ cloth material sets but after so many leather, silk, satin and generally 'shiny' cloth material sets I got the ideal I want want cloth material sets tat are actually new, complex, and not available many multiples of times already.

    You wait ages for a bus stop, then two come along together.

    There is/was a real modern city bus. If it's still there then the artist used poor choices for keywords. Like I've said before, try searching on AIRPLANE and see what doesn't come up.

    I actually think I have at least one bus from either here or Renderosity but sadly not on my computer to look

    library search only shows weird ones like Maxis

    I do have several double decker ones and a coach

    were some by Nimos thought I had but apparently not in any case no longer in store

    Burke and Hare were notorious grave robbers of victorian Edinburgh, they supplied the bodies to the medical schools and later turned to murder to get more fresher bodies
