This may be the wrong thing to get excited about but I LOVE that Diamond Citaro! By the way great work on the map.

How them buses gna reverse out?
The AI are lined to just drive alongside the stops not in , I know not the most realistic but got to work with what you got.

Completely full reason because I'm going to release my Diamond Repains with this map in the future or i might release them sooner depends on my progress at the moment They will be with the map.

You can’t edit a post after it has been up for more than 30 minutes.

EDIT: I’m such a hypocrite, it’s 35 minutes after the original post and I can still edit it, don’t listen to me 😂

After a fast recovery, I can hapily say I am back making progress on my map the screenshot below is my progress so far connecting Chorley old road to Moss Bank way, to then connect up in Horwich my plans from there are complete all roads with markings, paint, streetlights, etc to then proceed to create routes down to Preston & Chorley & / or at first connect up to Wigan depending on the order I choose, With this in mind I am happy for contributors to join in, in any way shape or form you maywant just hit me up in private on your way of contributing this is a community project I have decided to work on and I'm happy for the community to join in on making resources for this project.

If you wish to contribute in anyway shape or form these are some of the things I would gladly accept help in:

Repaints
Sceneary Objects -> e.g Buildings

Simple things like that.

Thank you all on your support so far I am working on this as much as I can to push for this date of release in the nearby future.

We are now connected and since Some things didnt line up we have a bit of a mind created part of the map for the 125 route, Now to fully fix up all the roads and markings , bearing in mind this fictional is quite lengthy So I'm thinking of putting a Bus Station in there.

This could bring in an new route into action which will be fictional. I do tend this map to have Alot of routes drivable.

As I've yet to skin some Vision bus liveries for the A21 & C400R I've filled the First Depot up with them. As shown below, there was a change in the size of the fictional part of the route to reduce it I have decided to call this area Codale.

Please Do note the destinations are already set to their real location , I do want to attempt on having Scrolling destinations depends if I can figure out how but that will bring alot of realism to the game, I have been working on this map for three months purely so thanks for sticking by the people that do, any suggestions on Route numbers for Some fictional Routes I will be making, there are many possibilities for routes from here if I end up finishing this fully.
Feel free to ask any questions about this.
As of now I do not have a release date at all in any form of mind as this project is far from finished, infact it's barely even started it just takes alot of time haha.
Anyway I will be finishing up the Road marking etc, Replacing lights which will take a while as Omsi Editor decided Nope not having street lights (Grrr) but after that it will be the move to Chorley.

Looking a LOT better mate! Very nice layout. Scrolling destinations would be great, I know the person who was creating the Enviro 200 Enhancement and Repaint Pack used one so perhaps talk to them about it?
