  • Well... I like the way pedestrians cross the street and cars make way for them. Now, at sharp turns, you need to look both ways to see a pedestrian. That's cool! :):thumbup:

    In my opinion, there are still few pedestrians. They are mainly concentrated at major intersections. But I'm sure this is just the beginning.

    I still see problems with external sounds.

    Yesterday I reinstalled Steam, uninstalled and reinstalled The Bus, but when I open the window from the driver's side, there are still no sounds.

    Will it be so now?

    I love to hear the sound of the engine, but it's not there now. Unless you install the camera from a third person.

  • lgvdbroek A line from Flughafen Tegel to Indira-Gandhi-Str can be created in the editor, here is a video showing how to create your own lines:

  • Maximus.

    Please can you show how ?

    Try using Editor Tutorials on YouTube, there are a few, or if you want to, download my XXL Operating Plan for the Bus for the actual Beta 1.3 with exactly what you searched for, a line from Tegel to Indira-Ghandi.

  • We just released a new BETA for The Bus. We have made some fixes, including the multi-display function. You can find the full changelog in the main article.

  • I've got the last update now, but I have trouble with ending the game.
    When I use the "Exit door" to end the, the game is trying to close.
    But there is a spinning wheel on the bottom corner and the game is not closing.
    Now I'm going to the Windows taskmanager and use End task
    Am I the only one ?

  • Hi Leo,

    NL: Wat jammer dat het blijft laden... Ik heb het net zelf geprobeerd en sloot de gameplay in 6.5 seconden. Het zou aan de hoeveelheid achtergrond taken kunnen liggen.. Ik ga er dus vanuit dat dit probleem niet bij iedereen is, en dus geen fout in de algemene game zelf.

    EN: What a shame it keeps loading... I just tried it myself and closed the gameplay in 6.5 seconds. It could be due to the amount of background tasks.. So I'm assuming that this problem isn't for everyone, and therefore not a bug in the general game itself.



  • @ Chris,

    [UK] Hey, Chris,

    I think it's that KLB mod. Now have the latest version ( 0.7.42465) and still it does not close.
    The usual standard does.

    It's now 11:28 and I have to leave at 11:31.

    The traffic behind me isn't happy with me.

    When they can just pass.


    [NL] Hoi, Chris,
    Ik denk dat het aan die KLB mod ligt.

    Heb nu de laatste versie (0.7.42465) en die sluit ook niet af.
    De gewone standaard sluit wel netjes af.

    Ze zijn niet blij met mij. Verkeer stroopt nog steeds op. 😥
