  1. There's still the many E500MMCs out there Yeah, the B9 is a nice bus to drive, plenty of nice features on it.
  2. Aye. one texture.
  3. Thought I'd plonk this here @Chuckinho

  5. I never called anyone stupid. I said that some of the decisions were stupid.I appreciate making a map is hard, and that he has made it in his free time. But, his attitude to criticism needs to improve, and, lets be honest, many other great maps have been made in peoples free time. Yes, I agree that we need more maps, but making maps with a 'quantity over quality' mindset it completely the wrong idea.
  6. Hello. Been a while since I've posted on these forums properly, but here goes. This is a rant about various things regarding the map. You've done a nice job with converting it and adding on the St Albans part, but there are major issues with the map and some of your decisions. 1. Your decision to use the AI cars used in Bowdenham This is one of the biggest issues on the map. The cars in the AI pack used by Bowdenham are stupidly built, and they don't even look very good. They have ridiculously high polygon counts, higher than that of the standard AI cars, which in my opinion, look somewhat better. The same goes for the parked cars. 2. Your decision regarding the packaging of ALL used assets. This is a major issue for those who wish to use the map, and don't necessarily have great internet speeds. This was also a problem with uploading to the servers I believe. 3. Your decision to continue to use Freeman's road/asphalt object Using Freeman's objects is understandable, because there isn't a great deal of UK building assets available, but the use of Freeman's asphalt object is stupid. There are lighting issues with it, the nightmap is crap and it really doesn't look nice. 4. Issues regarding corrupted/modified/changed/wrong assets The Simple streets that you have included in your map override the original simple streets. This is stupid, because the assets you have included have incorrect/crap textures for the pavements/sidewalks. (Plain grey, they should have a detailed texture). This conflicts with other maps, because they also use the Simple Streets mod. 5. The fact there is part of a continuation to Stevenage on the map that hasn't been converted After roaming around, I found a continuation to Stevenage, however it was not complete nor converted. Perhaps this was unintended? Overall, there are many issues with the map. If these were corrected, the map would look/perform so much better. I, personally, am not a competent map creator, but I can assure you, these would make the appearance so much better. Thank you for your attention, Lowlander21
  7. Do you have to use the menu to set it?
  8. Is the correct hof file included with the map? The one you've provided has no routes in the file and doesn't work with OMSI.
  9. I have downloaded it and there is only a Maps folder, Sceneryobjects folder and Splines folder. Is that all that was uploaded or was there more?

  11. I seriously recommend using blender or an alternative 3d modelling program, as you can't get a decent bus from sketchup to OMSI and still be the quality that you hoped for. I have about 15 bus models for SketchUp which will never see the buggy, yet bright light of OMSI.
  12. Trust me, don't start in Sketchup. It's a trap designed to lure you in. It may seem all 'honkey dory' but is seriously messes it up.
  13. Ebay is a good place to look. I took one from there for £25, quite the bargain if you ask me. (Alexander Dennis brand new)
