  2. A big thank you

    Great to hear bear, thanks so much. Internet forums and social networking sites etc now have a "I'll say what I want, when I want" culture. Look at any celebrity on twitter view their @ mentions to see that they are subjected to daily abuse of the worst, most threatening and horrific kind. The Internet is a place where everyone believes their opinion is correct, and therefore racism, sexism, homophobia, slander etc occur every minute of every day. And you're right, this forum is totally unique in that there are standards. The laughable thing is, the standards aren't even high ones. Basically "type using real words , be descriptive and please don't be rude". Even those simple steps fall short of some people. So it's great to see we have a team of people dealing with it to make it a great place for the majority of us. I remember in the feb 2011 just prior to Omsi release looking at the official forums and reading the comments and thinking to myself "are these people serious, it's a bus game" and that hasn't changed for lots of people. This forum is still fun happy and positive and gets great results though!
  3. Thanks! Yeah it's a 28 min night run. Do you mean you find the return (birmingham to Sutton) run needs to be tighter after the expressway?
  4. Please confirm you are running v1.6 If so please load the map and at the point the error occurs, please post a screen shot
  5. Phew! Glad it's sorted! Marc, would you like me to send you the files? Let me tell you though, bowdenham is epic! That's a lot of maps for you , I hope you don't drive the passengers the wrong way Hahahaha Let me know if you want me to send them to you, although I'm Omsi-less until Thursday
  6. Hi guys These are 100% not from donors version. I only downloaded that map myself a few days ago, by which point my own map was finished. So this is a bit weird isn't it? Can you just check in your folder buildings_freeman and confirm relevant sco files are missing
  7. Hi Marc Do you have "Canterbury basic" installed in your maps folder? They are scenery objects from that map and they are needed to run on "Sutton coldfield". Please download it if you don't have it. It's also an incredible map and youll love it!
  8. Will the map be extended / more routes added? Hard to say. I don't have any plans. My intention was a realistic, fps friendly, map. I knew the route well and with the help of google, recreated it. I don't have the memories, or actually, the passion in other routes to recreate them. So at the moment, probably not. A bit off topic - my next map will most likely be a central London route. If anyone is familiar with route 9 (heritage version), I want to try and recreate that. Trafalgar square, Hyde park corner, Albert hall, kensington high st. But we are a long long way off from that yet. Likely early 2013. Which in a way is good as by then we may have some UK style buses released.
  9. I agree..making anything new for Omsi is just a hard and time consuming operation no matter what is being made. No doubt in my mind about that. If after this update you are still having texture issues or missing roundabouts etc, please take a screenshot and post it. I can send it to you directly rather than found yet another fix
  10. When released v1.6 will fix all texture issues. (just waiting for longyear to upload it for us) No timetables or no AI = your vehicle location. You need to open your AI list and check the enviro location against your own. No passengers in Sutton parade. Is it possible I didn't change the bus stop cube? Not near Omsi until thurs now, so can someone check?
  11. Thanks guys For everyone having problems with textures splines and missing scenery Objects - v1.6 should sort it. It will be out soon so look out for it It also: - removes the "crashing bus" collision mesh problem - includes some rollband textures for Dennis dragon for AI use routes (courtesy of "ricky30") and updated hof for dragon. Also allows for people who don't have rollblind mod to use them too - annoying parked cars height situation in erdington sorted. - speed limits adjusted.
  12. @longyear some people in v1.5 complained of no AI buses, unable to select a route to drive and lots of missing scenery objects that weren't even included in the map. I'm guessing from that the version of "Sutton coldfield" i sent you earlier was v1.0 so I need to change it over for that of v1.4
  13. It's pretty easy I'm working on a 1.6. Give me till 9pm uk time please. Some people having some scenery issues and timetable issues in 1.5 so I'll try work it out now
  14. In fact I think I might know why this is the case. I'm going to work on v 1.6 this evening and get it up online ASAP
  15. Hi guys I'll put those objects up online in next 2 hours for you. Apols about delay. I'll paste link here As for the AI buses. Open your AI list and check the enviro is the same location with same spelling as it is in your Omsi folder?
