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!


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

6. Reduce your graphic and AI settings in OMSI

7. Try using the alternative AI list provided in the download

Apologies if there is anyone I have left of this list, it wasn't done intentionally!

You will need the current version of Simple_Streets installed

(Almost all addon maps use this, so you are likely to already have it installed).

· Thank you!

Thank you as always to everyone’s continued support and ideas at aussiex and the World of OMSI forum.

Special thanks for MarkHodgkinson for allowing me to using the company Logos, for xdanflyerx for creating the Bowdenham Coaches reskin, for flippy1008 for the duty sets and for AshleyTayles for creating the custom roadsigns.
