Update 24 BETA now available

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

  • Finally! Update 24 BETA is here! We fixed those pesky trees on the streets, stabilized the performance with fewer lags and even added a new city! See the complete changelog down below.

    Please make a backup copy of your save game before changing to BETA Update 24. Due to the new engine version, savegames are not compatible between Fernbus Simulator 1.23 and Fernbus Simulator 1.24. Under C:\Users\BENUTZERNAME\AppData\Local\Fernbus\Saved you can copy the folder "SaveGame" or create a backup.

    Kind Regards.

  • Hi Cuzzy

    We´ll test the issue with overwriting old savegames. Saving new savegames/not overwriting worked?

    Trucks switching textures is a known issue, will be fixed.

    We´ll also have a look at the Snow inside the bus, thanks!

  • I created a new save game called "1.24 BETA" and was able to overwrite successfully, but attempting to overwrite a savegame created in 1.23 causes the game to crash.

    Kind Regards.

  • Hi TIMO!

    I played for about twenty minutes with the new update FBS and this is the problems what I met.

    The results, I will send the link below , because is too big to upload in attachment.


    I know this is beta v. but I think I will help with this information for better function.

    Have nice day!

    Best regards! WFL

  • I can' enter to the Football DLC, the game always crashing.

    Is it possible to make it somehow to working the old save games? Its not easy to start the DLC again, because I started few months ago.

  • -The vegetation looks more lively and realistic. :thumbup:

    -Likewise, I felt it was more realistic in its shadows. :thumbup:

    -Freezing problem when changing radio channels has been solved. :thumbup:

    -I think there is a drop in FPS while driving at night.:thumbdown:

    -The new city is beautiful.:thumbup:

    -FPS starts to drop for a while after taking screenshots in photo mode.:thumbdown:

    -Have not seen any improvement at the overall FPS level, but the drops have decreased.

    -Vibration occurs under the left and right mirror of the Scania bus. But only on the move. You cannot understand unless the vehicle is moving.


    strange tracks appear on the back of the vehicle.

    the foggy look is really annoying. I can't see the sun and clouds. Everything is white. Please solve this problem for a cleaner and colorful look.

    before updating.

    After the update, the sky looks like this now. Really disappointing ...The moon that I admire its sparkle is now a photograph.:(

    ( Before updating )

    While I cannot see the sun clearly as before, I cannot see the moon clearly now. The bluish clouds that I liked very much at night have disappeared. Frankly, I will be very sorry if the night view stays like this.X/

    As with the left mirror, there is a difference between the image and the actual one.

    In the Flensburg garage, traffic jams occur as passengers land on the road.

  • What about fixes for VDL? For me in this update this coach works worse than in 1.23 (Microstuttering) but in this time everywhere, even in Germany. In 1.23 i have stuttering only in France in certain areas, Lille for example.

    My specs : Intel I7-7700HQ , GTX 1050 , 8gb ddr4.

  • The update introduces very good changes but also some errors, however, I will start with errors :

    1. All buses and minibus BB 40 , in automatic door control mode, when we take passengers, door opens automatically in each place for this photo and movie, please fix. They should always be closed only at the stop to open is a mistake .

    2.The water on every bus and BB 40 on the floor have talked about it for a long time, please repair.

    3. The night is too dark please brighten night .

    4. No translation into Polish , Photo mode , Photo mode UI Show/Hide

    5. No dynamic weather change.

    6. fog during the day spoils the image, please dellete fog.

    I agree here with raport Kadimbey , the night is too dark, the fog during the day, if you like it so much TML STUDIOS add options on the slider excluding fog. there is also too much bright white day.

    Positive changes very beautiful graphics and tree vegetation objects and colors I like it :), autumn trees change ,very pretty city of Flensburg.

    there is also an improvement in performance and the game loading screen shows cool photos it is a pity that the subtitles in it are only English .

    If you correct what I have shown and wrote, I and my colleagues will be a great version of the game.:thumbup:

  • I think there is a shadow error in some places.

    trees look different from afar different closely. Snowy weather.

    there is less whiteness and fog in the snowy weather. A situation that I cannot make sense of. I will play in snowy weather until the problem is fixed.:/

    -The angle of the sun's falling on the earth should be checked on an hourly basis. I have to feel the sun's rays more at 12.00, but it is ineffective. There is the same problem in the summer.

    -two photos were taken at the same place at the same time. However, when I raise the camera angle, the image turns white and sucks. The same white image occurs while driving through the bus.

    Cars turn lost in the first lane turning right.

  • Fernbus 1.24.31020

    First impressions after 36 Hours:-

    Update 24 BETA is a much better version than Update 23 OFFICIAL RELEASE is, whilst there are improvements that can be made, I overall believe that this is by far the best version of Fernbus since Update 19 (which was released way back in September 2018), it's more fluid, better optimised, and overall a lot smoother that Update 23 is right now, however DLC France suffers still from laggy/glitchy/buggy performance issues, but this is mostly limited to Paris.

    I firmly believe that Update 24 signals a new start for Fernbus and it is in this vein that future updates should be based off of.


    - Scania Touring DLC flooring is rendering snow.

    - Scania Touring DLC indicators do not work correctly.

    - Scania Touring DLC Retarder activates on command then does not deactivate when you accelerate sometimes.

    - Scania Touring DLC Hitbox of the coaches is incorrect, causing incorrect collisions/collision notifications/penalty points when there are no such collisions actually occurring.

    - DLC France poor optimisations, laggy/glitchy/buggy in Paris.

    - A road is broken in Free DLC Luxembourg (Screenshot Included).

    Broken Road in Free DLC Luxembourg -

    Kind Regards.

  • The solution is for those who are in the update 24 too light and a lot of white. We set the post-processing setting to an average indicator, this will remove excess light and even increase productivity. In the first screenshot, the post processing is set to epic, in the second screenshot for the average settings. Enjoy your game friends.:)

  • The solution is for those who are in the update 24 too light and a lot of white.

    I am a little disappointed that the distance field system has not been introduced as it is done in Tourist Bus.

    A perspective picture of the world would be much better
