    This is a final polish-up of the original BotW map. It is a project which runs alongside the development of BotW 2. The reason for this, is basically because the structure of the map has been drastically (and in most cases unrecognisably) changed - I've decided to bring the original up to scratch as I imagine many people will still be driving it.


    What this project will feature:

    • Aggressive optimization - drastic polygon count reduction, more efficient texture use and so on.


    • A manually timed timetable.


    • Major junctions will be converted to invisible junctions (i.e. phasing out ampelspline style spline-based junctions).


    • Deployment of an up-to-date 'iomexLH' spline pack.


    • Bundled desties and liveries for most RHD buses


    • Introduction of new assets by BTV, Whistlehead and Fellowslothb


    • Dependency streamlining


    • Much more thorough testing








    BONUS FEATURE: One thing I have decided to rebuild is the depot. It will be a treat for users of this map only (it won't be carried in to BotW 2). Here are some screenshots of the depot I knocked up this afternoon. I emphasize this is the only area which I have rebuilt. The map will be polished as it is.

    If there are any issues with BotW 1 which I have NOT addressed here, please comment below so I can deal with them.

    I am unsure as to the exact details of this. Is this BoTW 1 with small updates like a patch or is this what was released to BETA testers with a few small tweaks?

    The preview copy of BotW I sent out a few months ago was BotW 2. This project is BotW 1. I'm basically giving extended support to the original map.

    The stange senkrect issue.... hopefully that's addressed... 


    Otherwise it sounds good. If you need  any help let me know, as I know you're busy with BotW 2 too.

    Don't forget extensive UKDT-standard quality testing :) We may not have caught everything on Cotterell but we certainly put paid to a hell of a lot of the bugs.

    Loving the Network South East style banner, although that logo seems more like the French flag rather than the NSE logo :eek:  Looking good however, keep up the good work ;)

    Yeah I did flip the colours around, haha. It's a nod to this video:

    Another issue with BotW 1 - can you put a no collision mesh on the railway bridge in between Berry Pomeroy and Stoke Road? It's the only invisible wall I've found on the map.

    I probably could - I'd like to retexture it so there's the proper signage along the top:

    That's easy enough - copy the sceneryobject to a new folder and add a [nocollision] tag. If you're repainting it then there's zero extra fuss involved, and that's a really good bug to fix.


    Never did like how that bridge looked, a retexture would be a good thing for it.

    Changed the colour of the logo to make it look less French and more VHS-tape-esque

    This is the bus garage, where the polygons have been streamlined (no other optimization done yet, textures, etc):


    wvV_BXqaubsz2fagVcic0WJd_agx-n0v.jpeg


    Even the double yellow lines have been chopped up to save polys. There's a few more polys I think I can save, but I've already cut out thousands so far.

    Optimizing and updating this area. On my lunch break I redid the train station with BTV's assets and made it closer to how it is IRL

    I got quite a bit of work done today. I refurbished the bus station and train station area. Firstly, I did the road infront of the train station, and the station itself:


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    I haven't done the background scenery, yet, mind.


    Later on I cleared away the junction further on (that sort of roundabout thing, because of how many polygons it employed (17,636). Here is a before-and-after shot of this junction:


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    The new junction outside wireframe mode:


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    The road layout is the same, but I've changed it to be a signal controlled junction to make it feel more like a town centre.


    Towards the end of the stream I improved the bus station, and put a car park in the space where houses used to be:


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg '


    u2Ck1XarM4ZDJ6oH6EpJIIVYnbqcDHOs.jpeg


    It's not finished, there's still a few bits to do to the car park and bus station, but I ran out of time. I'm hoping to get this area complete before I start streaming again tomorrow.

    Really liking the new updates! I wasn't aware there was going to be a stream as YT never tells me anything but I love roadworks ;)

    Looks very nice I must say, I do like that new road layout you've got there at that junction. :)
