Buses of the Westcountry (BotW) 2.9

An update to Buses of the Westcountry

    Listed in enclosed readme file
    Please click the 'Updates' tab above to download the latest version!

    Welcome back to Buses of the Westcountry. This is the next version of the map, which is a tidied up version of the rather dated v2.7.1. Please note that this is not v3 (or BotW 2, or Legacy Edition or any other name it has gone by).

    What has changed in this version?
    BotW v2.8 features a tidied-up version of the 35 from Paignton to Totnes. It now utilizes the fantastic C400R, and has been generally improved upon. Poor, outdated map construction has been mitigated, common complaints addressed, general optimization, as well as higher quality assets.

    Please note - this version is simply a stopgap to give the community something while v3 (Legacy), London, and other maps are in the works. It is also intended to have 2.7.1 removed from public view as it is now a very old map not representative of the skills of UKDT.

    Read the included readme file. It includes instructions on how to get the map up and running. Failing to do so will result in missing tiles, or a blank map.

    UKDT is planning to attend Showbus 2017 - any donations received would go towards offsetting the costs of setting up the event. UKDT is not for profit, 100% of anything received gets reinvested into the community. Unspent donations will go back towards the operating costs of Fellowsfilm.

    What a nice map. Only 1 route but it is a really nice route to drive both ways. If this is a taster of what we can expect in the London add-on (which is the reason i recently got OMSI to begin with) then that is going to be worth every penny. Thank you so much for taking the time to make and share this map.

      Hi Rhys,
      In balance, we feel the AI traffic, although not quite as efficient as the vanilla set, is a better choice than having 1980's vehicles rolling around a modern map.

      Of course, you can edit the ailists.cfg to suit your tastes. I will say, though, that traffic does build up in BotW quite quickly in the Paignton area, a traffic density of over 100% is not recommended.

      With the rising bollard - because buses come in at an angle, we can't guarantee that they would work 100% of the time so we feel it would be best not to include them. The concrete lattice, red surface treatment and signage is enough to deter cars, we feel.

      The previous turn area was frequently criticized, as in buses longer than a C400R, a shunt was required to complete the turn, which apparently was unacceptable to a lot of peoplel.

    The detail in 2.9 is amazing although I am seeing a bit of lag.

    In 2.8 I didn't get any lag at all.

      Hi Jamie,
      There shouldn't be any reason for that at all - from v2.8, the heaviest contributor to lag was converted into a single object (roadway infrastructure at the zoo).

      Where exactly are you experiencing the additional lag compared to 2.8?
