our biggest project yet, Fernbus Coach Simulator, was released almost a year ago and we're continuously getting asked: What's next?! Are we going to continue supporting the game? Are there going to be more updates? New content? DLCs? Well, let's talk about it!
Of course there are still going to be a bunch of updates with new features, fixes, and all that is needed to ensure a great gaming experience. But there is much more that's coming up! Here's an overview... Ready? Let's rock!
The initial release of the Modding Tools for Fernbus Coach Simulator is only a few days away! These tools will enable you to edit the existing map and adding contents to it. You can even start creating your very own map, which will be as easy as you could even imagine: For whole Europe, the actual areas will already be included inside the Modding Tools, including the right scale, height data, and coordinates, as an orientation guide. You can simply start placing your streets and objects just like that! Stay tuned for the most easy and powerful way to edit in Fernbus Coach Simulator - Even without any programming or 3D knowledge! Video tutorials will help you create your very own first mod. Starting at initial release, we will publish videos that explain all the basics, and new episodes will follow that will explain the more detailed stuff. We just can't wait to see your first Mods!
Map DLCs - Austria, Switzerland and France
As our Modding Tools are just before release, we already want to announce that we're working on official Map DLCs: Austria and Switzerland (together), and France will be released as DLCs for Fernbus Coach Simulator, enabling you to ride your bus internationally! Time to learn new German accents. And French.

Usedom - Free DLC with exclusive new content!
It's island time! Yes, Germany has islands. Usedom is coming to Fernbus Coach Simulator as a free DLC! But that's not all: This Feature Package will include many new contents for the game, including new props for the Modding Tools, brand new vegetation that will bring a great new graphical experience into the game, and working railroad crossings that might eventually cause you to wait a minute or two. We will soon announce the official release date of this DLC!
Who said that there wouldn't be more coming up after the Neoplan Skyliner? Well, we have a little more coming up. There will be at least two bus packages: One VDL package with 6 bus variants and another package with 5 bus variants of the ComfortClass. More details to follow...
Multimedia DLC - Fernbus Coach Simulator Entertainment Package
Now this is really one of the wishes we've heard the most! The Fernbus Coach Simulator Entertainment Package will include a full featured Radio without commercials, over 70 licensed music titles, a MC with original jingles, an interactive radio traffic service with weather forecasts and new traffic disturbances!
Who said that your only job would be to drive passengers through Germany? Get ready to start your next challenge! The new season of the German Soccer League (Bundesliga) is starting and YOU are the bus driver of your favorite team. Bring the players to their games, make sure to drive responsibly, keep your bus clean and drive through the washer, keep the drinks fridge filled up and make sure to have a fair Wi-Fi on board. Make sure to head to the repair shop before it's too late, and compare prices of petrol stations, hotels, and more to find the best offer. Spending too much money won't make your boss happy, but being too stingy won't make your players happy. This is a new chapter - And you decide where it goes! We will soon detail the current development of this DLC here in our forums.
Of course, regular updates will also be released here and then, making sure to keep the game stable and adding constant improvements to functions and graphics, as well as interactions in the Germany map. We will also completely revise the AI system - we know it's you're biggest wish - and will take time to make Force Feedback better.
We hope you like our plans for 2017 and 2018 regarding Fernbus Coach Simulator. Tell us what you think!
