    Today we've released Update 1.20 for Fernbus Simulator. This update not only fixes a lot of bugs and adds polishes to the game, but most notably adds a new lighting and weather system and some new vegetation. Due to file packing, texture and material optimizations we've also improved loading times and performance.

    1.The cockpit is too dark , the steering whell please it can be seen clearly in the black place is very dark. Please, bright cockpit and steering wheels all BUS

    2.Bus All they are definitely too dark please give them brighter

    3.MOD - you can see the black screen no bus photos

    4.in the tunnels, the FPS 5 drops ,bad rides

    I've provided everything in the pictures, I'm counting on the repair, the rest is very well made and I'm happy :)


  • Martin 40 Bus thank you for keeping the list of bugs, it will be easy for TML to see the issues.

    Could you please add the fps drop bug at the entrance and exit to tunnels to your list. I have just checked and the problem still exists.

    Thank you

    changed, everyone on the forum can write, photo errors movie, TML STUDIOS they read and then delete errors- Digeeboy also report boldly;):thumbup:

  • We're glad you guys appreciate the Fernbus Update. Soon we'll release DLC Rennsteig for free, before we'll release DLC VDL Futura simultaneously in both Simulators. So, there's going to be happening a lot around Easter.


    *Looks at the internal pipeline of stuff to come* Well, this year has just started.


    That's the intent of the Tourist Bus Update.

  • One friend had a problem, the game is jerking, friezes, he diminished the graphics of mirrors and shadows, it became a little better but not completely, here is his PC, AMD reason 5 2400g, gtx 1070 8g, 16 gb of RAM, tell me what the problem may be ? The game is installed on the SSD, all drivers are updated.

  • Thanks so much for this update. Looking forward to playing but STEAM is giving me problems at the moment, it keeps restarting the download and when at 100% doesn't complete.

    So trying again; I personally miss the old .exe installer file it would of downloaded by now and installed ages ago! Lol

    What the time you have there dread? 12 o Clock Natty. :thumbup:

  • Alarm! The problem really exists, yesterday when I started the game, I had friezes, I thought it was an accident, but today it happened again. My friezes start when the sun rises, after restarting the route and changing the time by day, there are no friezes and the game works fine. A friend also complains about the same problem, we have the same video card, gtx 1070. I recorded a video where you can see how the game works. It turns out this happens at dawn, a mistake in the lighting. Guys, check how your game works when sunrise. Not any graphics settings do not help. :(


  • We are pleased with the update because a lot of good brings ,DLC Rennsteig :) and DLC VDL Futura :). soon. If you could have saved Gil, my and my colleagues' entries on the list of works would be great. Many error are not resolved and we repeat the write. I have a similar phenomenon as Maximus

    sometimes the image loses fluidity and goes on and off cages. Fernbus performance is not the best because it's about 35 - 40 FPS if it would improve everything we write would be great. because the game is very interesting and cool.

    mk0 Gil the internal pipeline of stuff to come where is it?:/
