Orion VII OG mod in Bus Simulator 2021

You read correctly folks, the first North American bus mod is out for Bus Simulator 2021, and it’s the Orion VII OG, or old generation mod.

Made from a joint effort of PumpkinEater69, Kostič_CZ, and Arthurian, this mod was brought into the game and can now be installed.

Mod Support for Bus Simulator 2021 was added on January 28th, 2022, with the 2.13 update. Developers can now create mods using the Bus Simulator 2021 modkit on the Epic Games Store, and then release them to mod.io

Believe it or not, not only is this the first time an American bus was modded into the game, but it’s also the first time the Orion VII OG was fully modded into a video game but released.

You can subscribe to, or download this mod, over on mod.io.

About the author: Dash Verified icon 1

I have been with Virtual Transit Center since it's conception as the "Dash Forums" back in 2008. Since then, I have been writing and doing YouTube side by side, focusing both on Transportation and Gaming. Most of my knowledge comes from SEPTA as I lived in Philadelphia for most of my life. As of 2021, I am on YouTube as DashTransit, Dash5155, and TheDashOfficial.

As for the name DashTransit itself, it actually stems from my YouTube channel.

DashTransit was originally called "njt5329" and the channel was just clips of buses. Mostly SEPTA and NJT. A Fujifilm Finepix was used in this era.

Starting in July 2011, the Canon SX130IS camera became the camera of the channel, bringing HD documentary-style videos much like my buddy (trainman1971) did for DVD for many years past. This is when the channel became known as "Transit Action Series"

In May 2012, the original Canon SX130IS retired, and then all videos were recorded off a mobile phone until eventually uploaded proved too difficult due to hardships IRL

Starting in 2017, I used a Canon SX200IS from Bastranz to reboot the channel that otherwise was dead for a whole year prior.

Between April 19th, 2019, and January 21st, 2021, all videos were recorded by a Canon SX710 HS camera. The channel was renamed DashTransit 4/19/19.
