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

    Renault definitely stands out from the rest of the competitors for its characteristic design which is well-known across Europe :)

    Hey guys!


    I've created a quick concept outlining my vision of how future expansions should be added into Fernbus Simulator.


    In my opinion, the countries bordering the base the country (Germany), should be added before any other country, to increase the playable map area as much as possible.


    I've seperated the next suggested countries into "Waves" in which they should be added in my opinion.


    According to my vision, the next countries added should be Poland, Czechia and Denmark :)



    What do you guys think; what are your opinions? Maybe your vision is a little different? :/

    CuzzystyleTV , you may be right.


    If TML released BETA updates more frequently, there's a chance we'd see more stable official updates, as more bugs could be identified and patched during the BETA period :/


    It would also give us a chance to see the changes more quickly, therefore giving us the opportunity to give feedback and report problems much quicker, every couple of builds or so.

    Wow, what a great surprise that Scania Touring is coming soon :)


    Knowing TML, I'm sure that the final model of the coach will have fantastic detail, but I just hope that it will sound close to the original as well :/


    Edit: I've attached a low-resolution image from Steam where you can see the front of the coaching looking more realistic with the black element.


    Edit 2: After thinking about how the fleet of coaches in Fernbus Simulator & Tourist Bus Simulator is expanding, I was wondering when will we finally start seeing other DLC coaches in AI traffic?

    That's some unprofessional behaviour for a game developer, I must say :/


    Steering wheel compatibility is fundemental when it comes to driving simulators in 2019 and the lack of it is a serious disadvantage for such game as it takes away the realism and fun that a steering wheel offers.


    Such incompability makes the developer/product seem amateur as potential players may choose to skip this title solely based on that reason which is why I understand your frustration Martin 40 Bus

    I've also noticed that I have been crashing more than often lately, in Fernbus Simulator.


    This might be caused by either inadequate speed limits to the section of the road we're driving on, or a bug that makes us lose control of the bus.


    However, I know for a fact that there are far too many sharp turns for the speed limit to remain at 100km/h at such roads like the one in the attachment.


    Slowing down, just when we see the turn, may be too late, resulting in a crash.

    This is why adequate speed limits are also important.

    This all requires time although the countries will probably be fulfilled with more cities but in small steps.


    It's also important to appreciate the level of detail of cities in France compared to a standard city in Germany which sparks a great improvement in quality.


    The cities in France really feel like the cities in real-life with all the different crosswalks (which there should be more of in Germany), seperate traffic lights, great diverse bus stations etc.


    It really feels like driving in an actual city and not a small drive-by destination. It's fantastic and I can only imagine what the next map DLCs will look like.

    The France DLC looked fantastic when I managed to play it. However, it has now become difficult for me to play Fernbus Simulator as I'm getting UE4 crashes very often. There are also buildings on the autoroute when leaving Paris in the direction of Lille which you can see in the attachments.


    Edit: After trying the same route again, I noticed that the crash occured again at the same exact place as last time. Unfortunately it is impossible for me to take the screenshot of that location due to the crashing, but it happens when approaching the Lille bus station, near the autoroute which happens to be near "Casino" sign.

    ETS2/ATS is great in terms of modding capabilities which Fernbus currently lacks. It gives the user base the ability to create their own modifications, models, sound edits, etc. I have tried driving coaches and transporting passengers in ETS2 but because it's not a native feature it also lacks many things like realistic models i.e. passengers which is hard for the community to implement since they don't have native support - they are treated as invisible cargo. I'm personally interested in cars so this is how I travel around Europe 8)


    Hello, the colours in the latest version of Fernbus look much more washed out than before and the overall image appears to be more blurry. In contrast (:lol:) to that, I did find the gameplay smoother. Maybe you're trying to find the right balance between graphics and performance? :/

    In Poland, in many places there is also very poor internet, it is not that Poland in the countryside has a great internet place 23 place ranking world Polish is a clear example

    It's obvious that you won't get a very good connection in the countryside in any country. But what I'm talking about is the great variety of providers with much better speeds. As you can see in the speed test image, my connection is faster than 94% of UK and it's not even that great but we don't have many options to choose from sadly whereas in Poland there are so many and I'm not even going to mention the pricing.

    There are other providers that offer higher download speeds but at the cost of much lower upload speeds therefore I'm happy with my connection as it's alright for streaming on YouTube or Twitch. However, I wish broadband in the UK was as good as in Poland :(

    Not only FlixBus is taking over Europe, but also other continents such as America and Asia with the addition of Turkey :)


    Last year FlixBus took over Poland's largest (in terms of national routes) bus company - "PolskiBus".


    Since Fernbus Simulator is built upon the co-operation with FlixBus, I think this makes it more likely to see these countries in game, where FlixBus is operating in real-life :)


    However, I think that there's a long way until we'll see countries from other continents as there's so many countries in Europe that haven't yet been implemented in Fernbus.


    In my opinion, the map should be expanded in a logical order, starting with the countries bordering Germany, so that we'll get the largest map size possible.
