  1. A few screenshots of my latest work on Scunthorpe...
  2. The map is designed to be driven around, not looked at from a helicopter. Its provided "as is" and is a convert from OMSI1 days with gradual improvements being made. Its easy to say a full rebuild would be better, and it probably would, but remember is a free map, provided by me giving up my own free time when balancing a full time job and bringing up a family. If you don't like it that's fine, don't drive it.
  3. The bean counters at head office would have a fit if they saw this...
  4. Thank you for the feedback. I hope, on the whole, you are managing to get the map working and are enjoying it. A few points that have come up... St Albans bus stop - I have never had an issue here, and it nothing was reported by any of the testers (many other things were - and the testers did a good job, and I appreciated them giving up their time for me). It might be worth trying to stop at the stop, then pull forward and stop again to trigger the stop to move on. If this fails, then manually adjust in the timetable, as has already been suggested. It could be that the platform length is short and only registers propertly if you stop right on the cube, but thats only a guess. Depot File - You just need to set your destination and drive. Good simple bus driving (If somebody wishes to make an alternative, with all singing/dancing next stop information, announcements etc, they are more then welcome) Route Arrows - These are automatically set in OMSI now, rather than manually set as objects in the map builder. This is better in the long run as any route changes are automatically done. One side affect is that, such as on the roundabout shown - You essentially need to think of it is 4 T junctions, rather than 1 large junction. As such, you turn left at the entrance junction, straight at the next, then left at the exit junction - if that makes sense! Takes some getting used to, but opens up new oppertunities for diversions or chrono functions, that mean not removing/adjustments to all the helpers. Running boards - I do want to make these, as they add realism - However as there are 3 different timetables over the week, and up to 14 buses running on some days - with the limited time I have available,it would take many weeks to put these together, and I didn't want to delay the map any further for the sake of those. I may release them as a separate file in the future if I get around to it, or nobody produces any first. Buses - It is designed for the Gemini. As such there are no blinds included. Any other UK bus will work, but you will need to copy the depot file, and in some cases, create some rollblinds (or wait for somebody in the community to create some). You may also need to use the Alternative ticket pack included, as the default is built with 6 tickets to match the Gemini ticket machine. For now, Hertfordshire will be as it is, and I am now working at finishing another project. Thanks
  5. The file I uploaded should be 609MB. I try uploading again?
  6. View File Hertfordshire V4 [RHD] Welcome to Hertfordshire Hertfordshire for OMSI2 is heavily based on the Arriva 300/301 "centraline" service, connecting Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield & St Albans, in the county of Hertfordshire, just north of London in the UK. It is a frequent interurban bus route, connecting shopping, health and work places across the county. This map is left hand drive (UK), and uses the excellent Volvo Gemini Eclipse double decker bus by default. All objects and splines required for the map are included in the download, with the exception of the default OMSI objects. The map uses the default Arriva repaint, included with the default bus. The route... The map is heavily based, (but not a full recreation) of the 300/301 routes. I have allowed myself to stray slightly from real life in some areas. Its worth noting I have never been to any of the locations included in the map, so most scenery is a combination of google streetview, the available objects in OMSI, and my own imagination. The Depot in Welwyn Garden City is fictional - In reality the depot is at Stevenage and Hemel Hempstead (a few miles beyond St Albans). What has changed since version 3? lots. The biggest change across the whole map is to conversion to UK left hand drive, and the extension to St Albans. This meant replacement of all the roads and junctions across the map, plus addition of all the road markings - as these were pre-applied to the previous roads used. Many scenery changes have been made along the way too, ranging from tweaking objects to complete area rebuilds... The Depot file... In Hertfordshire V4, there are no Bus Stop announcements, or next bus stop type systems. Simply set your destination using either the settings on the bus or via the menu, and off you drive... The timetable... Monday to Friday - Bus on each route run Every 30 minutes, with a 15 minute combined frequency on the common sections. On Saturdays, the basic Monday-Friday timetable applies between St Albans and Welwyn Garden City, however between Welwyn Garden City and Stevenage, the frequency is reduced to every 20 minutes. In order to co-ordinate this, some journeys stand in Welwyn Garden City for up to 10 minutes - and some 300 journeys run short trips. In the evenings, the 301 runs hourly only, with the 300 finishing in the early evening. On Sundays, the 300/301 each operate hourly, so buses run every 30 minutes across most of the route until late afternoon, before returning to the 301 only operating hourly. A full public PDF timetable is included in the map download for reference. Traffic Jams... AI traffic levels have been set to create some challenge, and to be as close the the harsh reality of being a UK bus driver as possible. During the main part of the day, you should usually comfortably manage the journey in 90 minutes - however at peak times, there are some "bottlenecks" built into the map for that extra challenge - such as Hatfield road into St Albans and between Welwyn village and Digswell Road/Knightsfield estate. Its also easy to get delayed on the way into Stevenage. A couple of minutes is built into the timetable to allow recovery time on the 301, however as the 300 takes a slightly longer route into Stevenage - so recovery time is more marginal. As AI traffic is random - there will always be times you are caught out by unexpected congestion! Tickets please... This map makes full use of the ticket machine in the default bus, and its ability to issue 6, rather than 5 tickets. It is recommended that you drive with full ticket sales activated for better realism. If you wish to use other buses, then an alternative ticket pack file is included - simply overwrite with the default one in the ticketpacks/hertfordshire folder. The default tickets are: Adult Single - Short distance (This is up to around 1.5 miles) - £1.70 Adult Single - Medium distance (This is around 1.5 to 3 miles) - £2.50 Adult Single - Longer distance (This is typically over 3 miles) - £3.90 Child Single - Flat fare over any distance - £1.10 Adult DaySaver - £5.50 Child DaySaver - £2.75 As the ticket types are "non-standard", no voice pack is included by default. I have tried to re-create the usual UK ticketing practice, where the fare increases with the distance travelled, rather than the less common flat fare system. Due to the way OMSI selects the tickets for purchase, its possible that passengers will wish to purchase higher value tickets close to the terminus, where a lower value would be applicable. Due to the limitations of OMSI this cannot, as far as I know, be changed. Thanks go to...

  8. Thanks for your responses. I fixed this some time ago, however for future reference for anybody who runs into the same problem - It seems I had added a spline on the end of the one of the sections with a length of 0. I ran the "find zero splines" tool in the editor, which removed it for me, then the editor returned to normal.
  9. The buses will be the MB Cito, NL202 and one of the SD200's. As you may have worked out, this is seperate from Hertfordshire map
  10. Calling all bus re-painters... I am looking for an experienced (i.e somebody who has released some repaints previously), who would be willing to make a series of bus repaints for use with an upcoming project. In total there are between 6 and 8 repaints that would be required, for 3-4 different vehicles, which would need to be created over the next 2-3 weeks. If your interested please send me a pm... Thanks
  11. I think you need to reduce the final terminus stop to lower than 1000. My understanding was always that if all the stops were set to 1, and there were 10 stops, and 100 passengers on the bus - then 10 would get off at each stop, as each has an equal chance of being the destination. If the terminus was set to 10 - and the rest 1, then passengers are 10 times more likely to get off at the terminus - So instead of 10 getting off at the terminus, 50 would, with around 5 getting off at each other stop. If the terminus was set to 1000 - then the chances of anybody getting off at anywhere other than the terminus is very small. OMSI also generates that actual numbers randomly, so the above is only a guide, as every trip will be different, so sometimes it does appear not to matter. Its also possible to set stops with a negative - such as -1. If you leave it blank, then OMSI uses the same calculation as it does to determine how many want to board - so on average the same number of passengers would exit as board, however this itself is quite random - If you this to min 10 and max 20 - Then OMSI picks a random number between 10 and 20 each time - then multiples this by the passenger density settings, which are determined by the time of day settings in the map file - If the setting is 75% passengers between 12 and 2pm - then if OMSI randomly picks 15 as its number, then the formula behind would be 15 x 75% = 11.25 passengers awaiting to board, so 11 passengers would be at the stop. It would pick another random number between 10 and 20 to calculate those wishing to exit the bus Hope that makes sense!
  12. Great Iomex, Thanks for fixing that!!
  13. Great set of splines and junctions, that have made converting maps much easier. I have been busy working at converting one of my maps and have come across an issue with the RQ20n with 9.5m crossing junction. Some of the paths are the wrong way, and also traffic lights on this spline don't appear to work. It would be great if you could fix this at some stage Thanks
