    TML STUDIOS will inform about it.

  • Very good news and large update, I am surprise. I am very grateful especially for new mause control mod with steering only. I wish it since release, this highly improve gameplay. Thanks for it developers!

    PS for long future: second wish, which I miss, is possibility create public lines with time departure (trips in game) by player. Every bus company can make own lines and timetables. Than this will be best bus simulator game.


  • I'm with this Beta installed soon I'll test.

    Wonder, they are doing the preparation for the VDL so its launching is next. Great news. :):thumbup:

    I have a suggestion: It would be interesting if it had a service where we created our own regular routes from city to city and tourist routes, being able to choose any points scattered on the map (I see many points (bus stop) on the road and many never had the pleasure of using it. them).

    As if it were an extra service developed in my company.

    I know that in the game if you have pre-defined lines, but choosing the places that we want to pass is a good thing.

    If it is turistic places could have some chores to do as confirmation of arrives, take photos etc ...

    At the airport, the place of embarkation and disembarkation should be varied.

    The location variation would be less repetitive stopping at the same spot always more being a big place. This model of road is the most used in my country.

  • I checked the route at night , in the daytime lighting seems to be correct light and other elements mentioned even though the whole game is not checked ,short time. mouse control, you can reduce the sensitivity a bit too quickly, the steering wheel rotates fast

    The FPS level is similar to a fernbus, meaning 40 would want more:), I think the update game is very good, I will make movie tomorrow new route.

    how to change the weather rain the fog I do not know please answer, I do not see these options:/

  • Extensive stains are visible straight ahead of us as we look as a driver.:

    In the picture I marked these places.

    During the day you can also see the dirt view at straight, for example, when we are in the office:

    I changed the version to "no BETA" (1.2) and the view is clean:

    Maybe the driver has dirty glasses on the nose ?? ;)
