(EN) Update 1.20. - Beta

Welcome to the new TML-Studios Community! Please read through the Community Rules and Guidelines and Tips & Tricks. Have fun!
  • Update 1.20.24913 - Beta


    This version adds only a single, but a crucial fix for the Neoplan Skyliner lights to work properly.

    The tests are going very well so far and the Update 1.20 should be released within the following week.


    So, after we've launched Tourist Bus Sim a while ago we can finally release the latest update as a beta version to Fernbus Sim.

    Most notably in this update will be the optimized loading times and the new weather effects. And as requested, we've added a new mode to the mouse control. But we have been fixing a lot of bugs too which were bothering the community and us as developers a lot.

    Detailed information can be found in the Changelog below.

    New Weather for Fernbus/ Tourist Bus/ THE BUS

    Fernbus Simulator new rain effect

    By testing this update and sending us your feedback you can make sure this update will be released smoothly and eventually with additional fixes too.

    ATTENTION: This is a BETA Update. Please note that this version can cause technical problems and/or may cause instability of your computer system.

    How to install the beta version of the update?

    4. In the field "Select the beta you would like to opt into:" select the entry "beta-"
    5. Now you can close the window and the beta version of the update should download right away

    Additional Changelog 1.20.24913

    The following have either been fixed or changed:

    • Neoplan Skyliner: Exterior and interior Lights do not work properly

    Edited 7 times, last by mk0 ().

  • For a moment, I only turned on the weather with a storm, a great effect of clouds and thunder with lightning.

    I do not know if this is a game bug but ...

    The last 2 weather options are not activated (no backlit changes)

    Poor drop effect on the glass roof despite strong rain

  • Hey, thanks for the feedback. Actually, that's not a bug, because there's usually no fog during the season you've chosen. Just like there will be no snow available during August.

    The roof windows still use the same old shader, because you usually don't see them as often and the new shader for the frontshield is quite demanding.

  • Errors and my opinions after short tests mk0

    1 Very good rain, drops on windows and sound :):thumbup:

    2. Fog is great options, but when we set snow and fog, there is too little fog. you should give just as much fog in the option of fog with snow. the fog option itself is great, its a lot

    3.The storm is great, but it's good to hear the lightning outside the cabin, you can hardly hear the cabin - you should give a louder cabin thunderbolt

    4.not enough in winter, even in February there is snow flakes and snow on the streets too little, you should increase the petals and give more snow on the street would be

    5.unfortunately, dynamic weather does not work at all despite choosing the option, the game does not change at all I do not know why :/

    6. ComfortClass S517 HD - when we change the color, bus wheel two are bad and painting is bad.

    7. the choice of weather options does not change the subtitles at the bottom, as you can see in the movie , the sun is all the time

    8. on the second film I set the dynamic option and as you can see it does not work all the time because I have the sun

    the changes and the works are great, but I have not checked everything today but if you improve everything I wrote, it will be a great thing with the weather. I hope that also pedestrians and passengers for the game will come soon, car washes, shops, driving trains and barriers, bus repairs , Truly a great job, it deserves a lot of recognition because it's very real game here other games that I know do not have a chance with what TML STUDIOS does, the weather system is so beautiful and real that all the time gives joy and realism and I want to continue to drive thank you TML STUDIOS because it pleases me and many people. :)^^:thumbup:. It's great that this system will be in tourist, the bus.

  • At first run, I still get the bug with no preview picture of mods.

    I can confirm that. At second run the pictures appeared.

  • Thanks for all your reports! The ComfortClass HD 517 is going to be fixed and ... well ... that's a hover car :whistling:

    Thank you very much Gil mk0 , if you correct the 8 points that I described and this dynamic weather system would work it will be a really great Fernbus update, I'm glad you'll fix Setra vehicle :), words Mathias I am also happy that we can look forward to the manual gear , clutch steering wheels , this is also an essential element of the bus simulator, I know that you understand it perfectly just like us. This will give you a great ride as well as the weather system. :):thumbup:
