You are recommended to make a back up of your OMSI installation and any built in content that is affected by mods.
I have only included a small number of sceneryobjects in the download file due to the fact that many people will already have the objects and splines used within Bowdenham already installed. This will also help with the size of the download file. If you do find you are missing objects/splines, please consult the list further down this document first. Failing that please add a request in the Bowdenham release thread on the Aussiex forums.
Only a small of add-ons have been added to the download, this includes my own reskin of Marcel and Rudgers bus stops into a UK Intalink livery, AshleyTayle's road signs, xdanflyerx's Bowdenham Coaches reskin and Steven Foster's World of OMSI reskin.
To install Bowdenham, simply copy the files directly into your OMSI folder. Please make sure you back up your installation first!
IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH MISSING SCENERY, PLEASE CHECK YOUR LOG FILE AND DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR THE MISSING OBJECTS FIRST! IF THIS DOES NOT HELP, PLEASE USE THIS THREAD FOR REPORTING OR QUERYING MISSING FILES AND I WILL TRY TO PROVIDE A LINK TO THE FILES!
Tips for running Bowdenham
Until OMSI2 comes out, you will encounter a number of issues running Bowdenham V3 due to the size of the map and the amount of buses running. To help combat FPS and memory issues, please follow the tips set out below. This will not solve your issues, but will help make Bowdenham run more smoothly.
1. Make sure you defrag your hard drive after installing Bowdenham, unless you have an SSD hard drive in which case - DO NOT DEFRAG!
2. Install and run gamebooster 3 for FREE - http://www.g-forums.net/general-discussion/5758-game-booster-v3-5-beta-download.html#post30591
3. Install CFF explorer for FREE and update the settings of the OMSI.exe file -
4. Turn off your antivirus while running OMSI
5. Disconnect from the internet once the OMSI map selection screen is open
