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

    There is no point in launching a new DLC with a specific region if the location has no characterization with the real place. The cool thing is to go from town to town and notice differences with the real place.


    To invest money in something I see on other maps is to throw money in the trash. And to complete the game it loses quality and becomes tiring. Euto Turck Simulator 2 at the beginning was like that, the objects were repeated a few years ago that started this work of characterizing cities and countries both in new DLC and updating old maps.

    TML has to be careful with this, invest time in creating something like the neighboring country and lose the countries' identity, this is something serious.


    The question of performance is to know how to develop maps without impairing performance. In this case the files will be replaced by others and keep the data rate proportional to the standard files of the game regions that the performance is better.


    Paris is a big city, so performance is less, more other cities in France are smaller and the impact on performance is better.


    TML needs to work better with Unreal, the water quality needs to improve a lot. The lighting went so crazy that I don't know what to say, I WAS ON THE RIGHT WAY (in the past) but in the last few updates it got worse to the point of becoming discouraging to play.

    Some things I liked, the traffic lights were more visible from a distance and the brake lights of the cars. Night lighting needs to be revised, several places need light poles and the quality of light needs to be studied.

    I thank the team that improved the lighting of some bus stops that I drew attention to.


    I know that part of the problem comes from the Unreal graphics engine in the latest updates. But TML has to develop ways to alleviate the problem until they are corrected by Epic Games. The TML team is hardworking so I continue with my support, but I can't help expressing my opinion. :)<3

    The time has come to explore the forbidden areas. :lol::lol::lol:

    I watch videos from an Italian channel on YouTube, I love the landscapes. I can already see myself walking the roads of Italy. :love:

    The downside is losing the surprise in the future when something is officially announced. More is so tempting. ^^

    Characteristic image from Holland.

    Beautiful catch. :huh:


    T3mo

    In fact, it was said that Belgium and the Netherlands would be the next map expansions. If the planning has not been changed, the possibilities are great. :)



    There is some evidence and connections between countries. Now the doubt remains in the air. :/

    Is access to this road allowed?

    Maybe there is some content in this region.


    Czech Republic is a reality, a smaller territorial area compared to France. Other options are Belgium and Holland, which are smaller areas as well. I am looking forward to Italy, a country that visually pleases me a lot.

    I laughed a lot with your comment, version 24. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
    The UK is more likely to be added "The Bus" in the future. :lol::lol::lol:


    I highly doubt that they keep this version and start adding base content and paid map DLCs and other content.
    The ideal project is a long-term project of at least 6 years. :)

    I hope "The Bus" will follow this path that I mentioned in the long run. Even more with the online mode proposal and if it comes with a modification and creation tool it will be a spectacle. :saint:

    Very good demonstration of pedestrians and movement of traffic, congratulations for the good work. 8o:thumbup:


    I wish that other games had an improvement in traffic intelligence, there are many silly accidents because of AI. X/


    Another point I touched on was the limited pedestrian variation.

    In Fernbus, for example, 15 passengers at least about 5 are repeated. I hope this is improved on The Bus because we will see a lot of people on the streets. :/

    Cool the new project.


    Probably a team will be destined for the development of this new product.


    And nothing will be compromised in relation to the existing games, I hope. ^^

    Yes I agree.

    I have version 16, it's a great game, I was hoping to be updated and improved, but that's not what happened.

    I'm sorry because I bought the 3 DLCs.


    When 18 came out I was completely discouraged and since then I haven't bought any more games from Stillalive Studios.


    If it were a matter of switching the engine, it is understandable that you redo the game again.


    Analyzing other games such as "Spin Tires" that had a studio exchange, it was fair. When the new version "Mud Runner" was released, everyone who had "Spin Tires" won a huge discount to purchase "Mud Runner".


    Unfortunately, this type of attitude is less frequent.

    Difficult to make a guess.

    It could be anything, but from what has been said, new vehicle DLCs are on the way.

    Map expansion is a reality, I believe that TML does not stop producing content of the genre.

    Even though the team is focused on The Bus, the development of the other games is very active.


    I don't know what to say about the short appointment of just "C" and "D". :/

    I believe the problem is in the way they work. Few years of life from one version to another. Soon the 21 is released and after a period is discarded the same happened with the 16 and 18. Games of the genre generally have a continuity after it is published. Imagine all the content being discarded from version 18. ?(

    Conclusion: it is the same as buying a sports game from EA that releases a new edition every year (copies of the previous one with updated teams and few changes). A very bad investment for those who buy, same as throwing money in the trash. X/

    Happy with one more update.


    I encountered some problems:


    - After clicking on any button in the menu a selection is around this button.


    - The rear view mirrors in the medium configuration do not seem to work (disabled).

    Selection problem is also visible on the map (Example in the image below).


    - I found this grass on the asphalt (near the city of Essen).


    I didn't have time to analyze the lighting because I quickly entered the game and it was in the rainy weather, at another time I will check it out.

    I laughed a lot when reading your comment. :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:


    Sometimes I also forget to pay attention to size. Seconds before sending the files I check if everything is correct. :P


    I believe it is the prey to send to Workshop. ^^

    The game has improved in terms of lighting but it is still not ideal.


    I noticed that there is still an explosion of light and very dark parts dark.


    - The sunlight is strong to the point that the floor is completely white and we see very dark parts, for example the panel and the GPS, even when connected, is difficult to visualize the information.

    With the shadows, the GPS should be very visible because there is no external light on the panel.



    I think I got that error if the thumbnail size is over 1MB.

    Yes, related errors are always because of this.

    The correct thing is to be below 1MB the thumbnail (JPG Mod).


    I use Photoshop and when saving the image I only make a simple change when it exceeds 1MB.

    I change the quality from 12 to 11.


    I keep the image always in Full HD (1920x1080).

    More if you prefer it decreases the resolution of the image.


    Maybe you use Corel Draw, I believe you should have similar options when saving your file.

    I used Corel a few years ago I don't remember the interface.

    If I had it on the PC I would check the settings.


    I hope it helped.

    On the road from Genf to Lyon, there is a road block.

    I think an error on the map.



    I remembered that I came across this situation almost a month ago. I forgot to mention this problem in the series of publications that I published in Beta 1.26.


    Well remembered, this whole area needs a review.

    The RTX 3070 is the most interesting model. :)


    If I could afford it I would invest in it.

    They say it is equivalent to an RTX 2080 Ti.

    And a new video card was announced at $ 499. ^^


    Dollar price today (Monday) in Brazil R$5,30 reais.

    A bad joke. :|?(;(X(X/

    In my country, besides the devalued currency, taxes are absurd and stores take the opportunity to bill on top of the product.


    The way is to wait for cards below the RTX3070 such as RTX 3060 or lower, which should be announced soon.


    With the pandemic problem, things are very difficult where I live. :|

    I will have to spend more time with my prehistoric hardware.?(
    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

    Please correct the lighting problem.


    Even making changes in brightness and changing the postprocessing, High, Medium and Low conditions are favorable in some posts and bad in others.


    Post-processing levels:

    High: the excess of light is very strong in the whole scenario is something that bothers.




    Medium: the game is too dark.


    Low: During the day it is great, as it gets closer to the end of the afternoon it starts to get very dark, places with many shadows begin to hinder the visibility. Beneath buildings and tunnels it is very dark, even if I turn on the lights it is still dark.




    A comparison between High and Low:






    This is the only serious problem I have with the game today.

    Incredibly, this new MAN pleased me a lot. I am very familiar with it if compared to the vehicles available in my country that are from other automakers.


    I changed some things in the painting to look more like vehicles in Brazil. For example, I removed the dark part of the front windshield.


    One of the best adaptations I created because of this familiarity (close design) of the MAN vehicle. :*


    I am very happy with the new vehicle, it is very good to drive. :love:<3:saint::thumbup:



    Busscar | Marcopolo

    The problem of excess (solar) light returns to the state of two previous betas. In the last one it had improved and now in the final summer it went backwards.


    The mirrors are too bright and the GPS panel is too dark to the point that I can't see practically anything (both dark and light).



    There are many variations of light that is changing the colors of the vehicle and scenery in general.
