  2. I cannot find the original IBIS2 mod for v1.1 of the Enviro500. I need it to use announcements with the original HK bus in a HK map. Nevermind I will get the bus rework by xdanflyerx - it will be much better for me.
  3. Discussions thread OMSI 2

    You put me to shame again! You sum up in a short paragraph the point I tried to get across in about half a webpage!
  4. Omsi & Windows 8?

    www.stardock.com They have a few pieces of software to add Start menu to Win8 and customize the tile screen.
  5. Discussions thread OMSI 2

    Great news!! I really like the matrix with the picture of the OMSI logo and the MAN NG! I don't care if it costs £49.99 like most so-called mainstream/chart topping games - I will still pay and I think we all should - M&R have made my dreams come true, allowing me to drive a bus in all realism from the comfort of my home, with perfect physics and handling instead of the crap that TML Studios gives us which does not even support a G25 wheel or let you steer the bus in any sort of realistic way. This simulator is better than many "professional" simulators (not that there are many - if any - professional bus simulators) and could be used to teach bus drivers routes and eco-driving technique (although I am in no way shape or form a eco-driver ). Anyway i think DEM can be found in Google earth or something but I'm not certain. I can't wait for the release of OMSI 2! I remember waiting for OMSI 1 for over 2 years seeing it in development and hoping against hope that it would be available for sale at an afforable price. I think we should all be glad that OMSI does not cost £300 upwards like some driving simulators - or worse - only made available for large installations in driving schools.
  6. MAN Lion's City V2!

    Thanks for posting about engine cooling and the button functions, now I can drive the bus without it looking like its going to break down! Someone mentioned not being able to turn the bus on after stopping - I think it could be a bug with the Voith 864.5 or 863.4 script. Also, I can't wait to try out the speed limiter! It would be good to stop me flying through Berlin or anywhere else at 80 km/h! This is one of the few buses where I prefer the Voith gearbox over the ZF, mainly as the ZF doesn't sound quite right to me.
  7. Which Types Of Routes Do You Like Best?

    I love them, but I also prefer real life routes like Usti Nab Labem, Newcastle and Tatra.
  8. Door enhancement for Enviro500

    Thanks thiago!! It does not make it less realistic, as in real life drivers would use multiple fingers to open/close the doors at once to save time. This mod sound fabulous!
  9. enviro 500 rear doors

    You might be driving the AI version!
  10. Very good!!! I was on the Glasgow one the other day - they are awesome, with ZF gearboxes!
  11. An offer to map makers

    Might need rollbands for Greendale for the Dragon if your offer is still open and its not too much bother. If you are interested PM me, and I will give you a list of destinations and numbers. I would also Need Edinburgh Destinations... On a related note, anyone know how to make a new bus use rollband instead of matrix?
  12. [MAN Lion's City DD - WIP] By 2405Eric

    Took the words right outta my mouth there, Ritcheaze! I've been doing lots of runs on the X10 to calm myself down after almost going literally insane working on addons for omsi! I will hopefully resume those projects soon. Anyway, i also watched which shows lots of the real thing coming out of Hertzallee, which is in the Teltow map (at the opposite end of Teltow) which is the layover point for what looks like half the buses in Berlin! I can hear my passengers screaming when I miss judge those roundabouts! I hope there is a ZF version for other maps (although if there is not it would be easy to transplant the ZF mod from the existing single decker) but its the Voith one I'm waiting to drive in Berlin! Before OMSI I hated Voith gearboxes, but with learning BVG's buses use them and driving them myself I have found that they are very good gearboxes, when driven with spirit and not as slow and bothersome as I thought. But ZF is still my favourite. Wish 2405Eric best of luck in his creation of this lovely bus from me! And tell him he has inspired me to keep at converting for omsi - and finally ask him if he is planning a RHD version cos if not then I can proceed with one.
  13. Creating "white" glass

    Maybe you missinderstood me, I meant reducing the transparency so you can see out but people outside see a mirror, does OMSI understand the ray trace settings or does it need more info?
  14. Creating "white" glass

    How do you make darker windows? Like US transit buses have?
  15. Anyone interested in a Volvo Olympian ?

    It's an Olympian with the newest engine fitted to Olympians - the D10A. Edit: Of course I am interested in a Volvo Olympian!!! Volvo are my favorite!!
