The Bus - official information

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


    Here you can see wip screenshots of the State Representation Rhineland-Palatinate and the State Representation Hesse. Both are located "In den Ministergärten", a street near which the new line 200 will pass as well. Are you excited about the upcoming updates of the Early Access version of The Bus already?;)


  • Hello to all and good end of vacation to all. Phase 1 is on track and everything is marked in yellow, does that mean Phase 1 is almost complete and Phase 2 is coming soon? In phase 1 on the site


    https://trello.com/b/kGhFZOke/the-bus-early-access-roadmap


    it is marked UI news Windows, for Windows 11?


    I can not wait to see the evolution of the game on phase 2 with the Man bus and line 200 with bus and tram traffic ....<3:)

  • Yes, with trams the atmosphere will become even livelier and more realistic. But according to the roadmap, tram traffic will appear only in the third phase :/


    I do not know anything about the plans of the developers, and about when the second phase will be launched, but I can guess. This is exclusively my opinion. I ask you to take this into account and not take it as some kind of accurate information:!:


    I believe that all updates do not just have such numbers as: 1.2; 1.3, 1.4, now it's 1.5. That is, before the next phase 2.0, 5 more updates should be released (according to my calculations).

    Considering that the update that goes from beta to full version takes about a month, the release of phase 2.0 should not be expected in the fall of 2021. Perhaps it will be the winter of 2021-2022. Well, at Gamescom 2021, we will most likely be shown the new route 200 and the MAN Lion's DD bus.


    These are my assumptions, but how it will actually be, we will soon find out.


    I am very glad that TML-Studios is always preparing surprises. This is much more interesting than what I have just written. When you know what will happen in the future, it becomes less interesting. Therefore, just dream and enjoy what is at the moment right now 8o :S

  • If you see, yellow means W.I.P.


    DON'T expect Phase 2 anytime soon.... I do think phase 2 only releases when TML is satisfied with phase 1.

  • Yes, we're in the process of completing phase 1 of the Early Access of The Bus as everyone can clearly see on the roadmap on Trello. However, we're going to smoothly transition from one phase into the other. So, expect some features from phase 2, like the MAN Lion's City DD and line 200, to arrive earlier before phase 1 is 100% completed.

  • Hello, a very interesting announcement. I regularly watch the game's news and it is always promising. TML STUDIOS does an amazing job. Once development is complete for the game, hopefully the follow-up will still be there:);)

  • Hello everyone,

    At the bus and tram stop, there are signs that mark the name of the bus stops and the digital display to show the next tram. Will they be active and show in a future update? Thanks you...



  • Hello everyone, I ask myself the following question: have talked a lot about the physics of buses, the start felt from 0 to 20 km / h which is not felt like in OMSi 2, the noise of the bus which makes a loud noise when it rolls I think it's theredecompression I don't have a video to show you, will it be reworked or taken into account ?. Sorry for the question... translation french english.:)

    Hi MarcFRA,


    Please be minded that the physics are not final, we're working on them to make them much more realistic.


    Best Regards.

  • Both digital and analogue displays will be working in the end. We've just got more important tasks with higher priorities on our lists at the moment, e.g. modding tools, UI improvements, AI busses, and multiplayer, as well as new content like the MAN Lion's City DD and line 200.
