Buy new buses and hire new employees. You can drive regular routes, transfer tourists with shuttle services, and offer sightseeing tours to hotel guests. The whole island, including every street, city, etc. can be explored, meaning, there are no invisible walls. Only your driving skills will set your limits. There will be buses from several brands included and you'll need to keep them maintained and have them looking good with fresh paint jobs.

    • Manage and take care of your own fleet

    We can't wait to hear your feedback. Have fun watching!

    Hey guys,


    the multiplayer is the base of the game. All contents are based on the multiplayer system and not vice versa. This means that all contents are synchronized, and if someone has a specific mod, it'll be synchronized as well. Any DLCs that will be released will therefore also be fully compatible with the multiplayer. Of course, let's say there is some sort of map expansion, all players will need that expansion to play, no matter if Server or Client.


    More details will come in the DevDiary later today.


    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hey all,


    thanks a lot for all your feedback. We're very glad to hear that you're liking the DLC. We have taken your feedback to develop a new patch that will face most of the issues and fix/polish the DLC. The patch will be released soon™. Should you still have feedback, positive or negative, hit us right here, and also don't forget to keep those awesome screenshots coming in our screenshot thread and/or on Steam.


    Thanks and best regards,
    Chris

    Hi James,


    thanks for sharing your thoughts. I can only agree that we really need to settle towards Steam and take care of the community there. We’ll make sure to give it a start as soon as possible (meaning now, more or less).


    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hey everyone,


    we're proud to announce the general availability of the Austria & Switzerland DLC for Fernbus Coach Simulator!


    Feel free to leave your feedback here: Austria & Switzerland DLC - Your Feedback



    Please make sure to have the currently latest update version 1.17.17900 for Fernbus Coach Simulator installed!


    In order to keep feedback in one thread, we're closing this one for further discussions. Please find all the infos to this DLC in the first post of this thread.

    Hey @LT586,


    sorry for the late reply to your problem, I had to find out myself what's going wrong there.


    It seems like there's an issue with Steam itself (Steam likes to mess up game data here and then). I would suggest reinstalling the game completely.


    To do so, uninstall the game via Steam. Afterwards, go to the game installation folder (.../Steamapps/common) and delete the "Fernbus Simulator" folder completely. No worries, your user profile data is not affected. Then head back to Steam itself and install the game again.


    Please let me know if this works out.


    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Kev,


    I've moved your post into the English thread. Thanks for your detailed feedback! Are you generally not able to play the game at all now due to the minimizing to the taskbar? If you're able to go through the menu, please check the graphics settings and what fullscreen mode you are on (real fullscreen or "fullscreen boarderless"). Depending on which one it's set on, please change the setting to the other, and see how the game behaves. Apart from that, the fps issues should be solved in this beta version, so as soon as the minimizing issue has been solved, please check on that as well.


    Thanks,
    Chris
