How to install new vehicles?
It is very easy downloading more buses, trucks or cars! Just find them on some fans websites and download the mod as a zip file, click on the "+" button at the vehicle selection screen and locate the downloaded file on the screen that will appear.
On Android 11+ you must create a folder inside the downloads folder and move the file inside it first. Due to system restrictions it may not let you access files on that downloads directory directly. If you have older Android versions it is still possible installing mods in the old way by extracting them to the game's data folder. If you use the new mod installer, please do not extract it before: that selection screen looks for a zip file. The game itself will extract it to the correct place. If the file has a password or use the rar format the game may not detect it. On those cases you may extract it to a temporary folder and then make a new zip with its contents.
After selecting the mod on that screen the game will extract and install it, making it available to play in a few seconds. To remove the selected vehicle a "-" button will appear. Please note that this will delete the mod on the game's folder, not the downloaded file. You may keep the downloaded file to make a backup, or delete it to save space. If you uninstall the game for any reasom Android will delete everything inside the game data's folder. So be careful to make a backup of your favorite mods before deleting them.
Please note that some mods are heavier than others and they may not run on all devices. There is no warranty about community mods. We try to optimize our content for the most devices that we can, but sometimes due to the amount and size of textures, sounds or polygons, some mods may not run well. Try to find lite versions of the mod, if available.
On Android the mods folder is managed inside internal storage - Android - data - com.viamep...[game id] - files. On PC (Windows) they stay at Documents - Proton Bus Mods.

Explaining the options of the vehicle selection screen:

Signs: will enable visual route signs at some buses.
Collector: will enable the visual model of ticket/money collector on buses that have it.
Engine on: will start the bus with electric and engine on, useful for beginners. If you disable it you should manually start the bus.
Parked: will start with parking brake on, to avoid movement before starting to drive. Please release the parking brake before moving.
Man. gearbox: will use a manual gearbox instead of automatic transmission.
Clutch: will enable clutch, this is good for PC with steering wheel joystick. Not available for mobile.
Optmize shaders: will enable simpler shaders to gain better performance on newer buses, specially mods that use the Standard shader and glass reflections. If enabled, they will run without these features to gain performance.
Lite: ativará algumas otimizações internas enquanto desativa animações extras. Botões, limpadores, janelas etc não vão funcionar se esta opção estiver marcada.
Placas: ativará placas visuais das linhas em alguns ônibus.
Cobrador: ativará o boneco do cobrador nos ônibus que possuírem o lugar dele.
Iniciar ligado: inicia com a elétrica e motor ligados, útil para iniciantes. Se você desativar isso, precisará ligar o ônibus manualmente.
Freio de estacionamento: inicia com o freio de mão ativado por padrão, evitando movimentos indesejados. Libere o freio de mão antes de sair.
Câmbio manual: ativa o câmbio manual em vez da transmissão automática.
Embreagem: ativa a embreagem, útil para o PC com um volante e pedais. Não disponível no celular.
Shaders leves: ativa shaders mais simples para ganhar desempenho nos novos ônibus, especialmente em mods que usam o Standard shader e reflexos nos vidros. Se ativado, eles rodarão sem estes recursos para ganhar desempenho.
