    • Fixed a crash with savegames from previous versions
    • Fixed a bug in the navigation's route display

  • I liked the lighting, the colors of the trees and all the greens are now juicy, I looked at this cactus for five minutes, it’s really cool. After the rain there was one sharp transition of lighting, but in general everything is great.

  • After changing buses twice, I have a normal (single, not triple) view and I like the light in the game. After all, these bright spots on the view are minimal ( this bug was from game version 1.3 (EN) BETA Update 1.3 - available for testing )

    The color of the hills and areas around the roads has a pleasant natural earthy color.

    I have not noticed this before on other buses, the passenger tags stick out from the roof of the bus, passengers sit in their seats, and the tags are placed too high.

    In addition, a nice view of Intercity on the road :)

  • The update on the graphics is very nice, much better lighting now.:thumbup:

    If you have problems with the windscreen windows, lower the EFFECTS value to low in the graphics setting.

  • I know it's a bug! I gave a temporary fix. Lower the effect setting and it will be gone.

  • Cygnific TML will fix because the best effect is the epic setting & from what Quarney writes they will deal with this problem which concerns the Coaches & Jeep windows, Martin 40 Bus Says in the report it shows in the short movie, photos & description.

    Kind Regards.

  • I KNOW!!! >>>>It's a temporary fix<<<< So you can still enjoy the beta.. Is it that hard to understand or?

    I dont even know why I bother with this.

    Nor do I understand why Cygnific 's solution is criticized that bad here: Instead of being thankful and glad about his solution that makes this beta version playable for people with this issue, he's told that TML will fix the bug. Absolutely senseless and very disrespectful to him!

  • I understand the matter I am reporting problem Martin 40 Bus , the game will be fixed in upcoming BETA patch, and your solution doesn't work for me and others, so BETA updates expressly say "they may contain bugs/cause instability" so the fact this issue exists bother me none, all we can do is report to TML-studios and wait for a fix Cygnific

    Cygnific your solution whilst welcome is only a workaround, and fix needs to come from TML-studios when possible, so the problem is removed, like I said above, it doesn't work for me, but thanks for the help.

    I am fully aware of the issue, I am only reporting what Martin 40 Bus, myself and other have experienced.

  • I don't know what's on the tap water today, but thanks Cygnific, that worked for me nicely, didn't even have to drop effects to low, medium was enough. And when rain came, I raised effects back to epic and after the rain windscreen stayed clear from distortions.
