  1. 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...

  2. File Name: Hertfordshire V3 File Submitter: mrmoose File Submitted: 04 Apr 2013 File Category: OMSI Maps Which version of OMSI is this download for ?: V2 WELCOME BACK TO HERTFORDSHIRE This map re-creates a significant section of Arriva routes 300 and 301, in Hertfordshire, England. The route runs from the town of Stevenage to Hatfield Gallaria - a run of around 1hr 10 minutes, through a mixture of urban and rural areas. Route 301 runs to Welwyn Garden City. Your journey starts at the centre of Stevenage, a large town north of London, in the heart of the South East Commuter belt. You Immediately head south, out of the Town Centre, through retail outlets and industrial estates, before breaking out into open countryside towards Knebworth, a large village around 5 miles south of Stevenage. After Knebworth, we continue south, passing the village of Woolmer Green, and Madeley Hill, before reaching the village of Welwyn. After Welwyn, we enter the northern part of Welwyn Garden City. We travel around the "Knightsfield" housing estates, before arriving in Welwyn Garden City Bus Station, 40 minutes after leaving Stevenage. Here,the 300 and 301 journeys split. 300 journeys continue further south, travelling through housing estates in Welwyn Garden City, before enjoying a short blast along a dual carriageway to Tesco and the Birchwood estate. Services on route 301 continue to serve the Queen Elizabeth 2 Hospital and the suberbs of Welwyn Garden City - before re-joining the 300 route at Hatfield Market Place. Both services then continue to Hatfield Market Place, and terminate at Hatfield Gallaria. This map uses the Mercedes O530 (2 door) version for AI - with included repaints for ai buses kindly created by BusSimAddict. Please make sure you read the enclosed documentation for the IBIS codes, and further information.

  3. File Name: Scunthorpe Modern File Submitter: mrmoose File Submitted: 24 Nov 2011 File Category: OMSI Maps Welcome to Scunthorpe... Scunthorpe is an industrial steelworking town, located in northern England, United Kingdom. It is a town with a population of around 75000, formed initially of five villages, Scunthorpe, Brumby, Ashby, Froddingham and Crosby, and the small town of Bottesford, which has gradually merged into the town over the years. Public transport in Scunthorpe exists in the form of a local network of town bus routes, named the Scunthorpe Shuttle. It is a joint network, operated by the national bus company, Stagecoach, who have a depot in the town, and Hornsby Travel, a local firm who have provided bus services in Scunthorpe since the days of horse & cart. The focus of the town's bus network is the Town Centre, with its bus station and large shopping areas, it is where most passengers want to go. Secondary to this, Ashby has a large shopping area, and popular market, which can be reached from most areas of the town by bus. In 2005, it was stated that around 80% of journeys made by bus in the town where either to or from the Town Centre, or Ashby. There are large industrial areas located around the town, including a steelworks employing several thousand people, however, these areas are not served by public transport and the car is king here, but buses are still well used for leisure and shopping trips. Development work on the Scunthorpe map for OMSI started in summer 2011, and Scunthorpe V1 was released in August 2011, with routes 4 (which was fictional), and 6. V2 followed soon after, and finally v3, which created the full town, was released in December 2011. In January 2012, work started on a full re-build of the Scunthorpe map. Map making standards had moved on considerably, and a host of new objects were appearing all the time. In April, changes were also made to the bus network in Scunthorpe, which are also reflected in this new map. The map has been re-branded Scunthorpe Modern, as in time, the map will be updated alongside the real bus network. The map includes the following bus services: 6 - Scunthorpe > Ashby 9 - Scunthorpe > Hospital 10 - Scunthorpe > Lakeside > Ashby > Westcliff > Scunthorpe 10A- Scunthorpe > Westcliff > Ashby > Lakeside > Scunthorpe 11 - Scunthorpe > Ashby > Yaddlethorpe 12 - Scunthorpe > Old Brumby > Ashby > ASDA 16 - Scunthorpe > Parklands > Ashby 22 - Scunthorpe > Ashby > Timberland > Lakeside 31 - Scunthorpe > Westcliff > Riddings > Froddingham > Scunthorpe 32 - Scunthorpe > Froddingham > Riddings > Westcliff > Scunthorpe 31A- Scunthorpe > Westcliff > Bottesford > Froddingham > Scunthorpe 32A- Scunthorpe > Froddingham > Bottesford > Westcliff > Scunthorpe 33 - Scunthorpe > Westcliff > Bottesford > Ashby > Scunthorpe 34 - Scunthorpe > Ashby > Bottesford > Westcliff > Scunthorpe 35 - Scunthorpe > Tesco > Keadby > Amcotts 37 - Scunthorpe > Tesco > Skippingdale Retail Park 38 - Scunthorpe > Hospital > Crosby The map includes its own ticket pack, with English voices for both male and female passengers, Fully detailed route map, timetables, vehicle running cards, plus realistic passenger flows, its own AI buses pack, and much more to discover. Please ensure you read the 'read-me' document with the download for full installation instructions, and more information about the map, and some of the features. You will also need to download the AI vehicle pack from here. AI Traffic uses a mixture of D92s and NL202s There is also a second (Optional) download containing a 'light' AI list - limiting the AI buses to D92s only, which improves frame rates on the map.

  5. OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    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.

  7. OMSI Maps :: Hertfordshire V4 [RHD]

    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

  10. Hi I have ran into a problem in converting one of my maps to RHD/Left path - and I am not sure the best way around it. Essentially, the spline path (A), I am trying to connect to junction (B), however when I press CTRL to snap the peices together, the spline will only snap to path (C). It seems to make no difference how far I am away from point C - I could try attaching the spline to another path on the next tile, and it will still snap back to (C) when I hit the control button. I have also tried attaching junction B to spline C, and then to connect Spline A, but continues to try and connect to C, effectively so the road runs under the junction. I have also noticed that the cylinder symbol appears at the end of spline C all the time, as if it is somehow constantly selected?? Any help on this would be very much appreciated... Thanks in advance
  11. Splines refuse to connect?

    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.

  13. Can you lend a hand?

    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
  14. Can you lend a hand?

    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
  15. Passengers dont exit at some stations

    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!
  16. Great Iomex, Thanks for fixing that!!
  17. 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

    Is that an updated dart with working Dash and ticket machine I see?
  19. What are you working on?

    Re: the barrier - I am going to see how it feels when I drive round it. The issue could be making the turn out of the bus station without creeping onto the other side of the road, which is a challenge at the best of times. In other news - following a competition commission investigation - C&A have closed down all of their department stores in Welwyn Garden City...

  23. Ticket Packs

    Wish it was but currently it is not. Having a flat single fare for city routes is fine, and quite common - but for longer distance or interurban type routes not so, certainly for UK operations. Personally, the closest I have got is using the 5 ticket buttons as 1 - Adult Single, short distance 2 - Adult Single longer distance/ (with transfer, for those who insist on buying the ticket 2 stops from the terminus!) 3 - Adult Day 4 - Child Single (Flat fare) 5 - Child Day
  24. Can you lend a hand?

    Hi I am looking for somebody who is prepared to create a series of repaints for my upcoming Scunthorpe Map. Ideally, you will have produced and released repaints previously. Initially, I will need 5 repaints for Scunthorpe for OMSI2. If you are interested in helping me out - please get in touch via pm Thanks in advance!
