    Yeah, the dart is really undriveable though, and it sparks all the illegal activity with the Chris Sammuels buses etc. There is a Dennis Trident as well but I think that's an illegal MM2 convert so...

    I am not a member of UKDT Staff but I can 100% tell you it will be the C400R as the AI buses in BOTW 2.

    Well, watch this space...

    Also, if anyone missed the announcement in the BotW LE thread, BotW 2 as it stands is being dropped and started afresh. What has been made so far is being incorporated into an expanded Legacy Edition, and BotW 2 will take flight as a brand new map with higher standards of realism - think Cotterell, but even better :)

    We've made this decision partly as we were hanging halfway between realism and fictionality with our map plan, and because it didn't make sense any more to be working on a map which has its roots stuck in OMSI 1, with tile compatibility issues aplenty.

    Such a shame to hear the map is being dropped :( do you plan to release what's been done on it up until now in the legacy edition of BOTW1 soon?

    Yes, and because the OMSI usership seems to be less computer literate than most modding communities, we'll be making an advanced installer package to go with it.

    It would be nice if Newquay was included and also St Ives (Imagine getting an e400 out that bus station XD)

    Do remember that this map is fictional? So if it did go that far, the bus station may not be anything significantly similar?

    Here's a suggestion, on the motorway b/w Cotterell and Botw, there can be exits and new towns between them, new routes wil serve these town. and cotterell and botw will be like two cities far away from each toher but with a motorway :D

    We already have a mental plan of what we're doing. To reiterate, we're recreating the Westcountry (basically everything West of a line between Bath and Weymouth), in reduced scale. Think of ATS or ETS2. However, the difference is that the central areas of key towns will be 1:1 scale. Just like ATS, there will be minor towns along the way which you could potentially visit - for example we're not modelling Exeter right now, but you will visit the service station on the M5.

    In order to sit with Cotterell (being a 99% realistic map), the Totnes-Paignton part of the map is being removed entirely so that it can be recreated realistically. In addition, we will rebrand Cotterell to Bath. The new features I made for BotW 2 in the Totnes-Paignton area have been ported over to BotW 1 Legacy Edition.

    The target release date I had in mind is for BotW 1 Legacy Edition. This thread is about BotW 2.

    Interesting! So will Exeter be available on release or not? And from Maps, Weymouth is pretty far from the M5 (even with scale reduction). I hope Bristol will get modelled into as in the Cotterell map the other part of the Bus Station was pretty much "wasted" hence I hope that in BOTW 2 it will be more fun!

    Am I right to say that Bath, Paignton, Weymouth and majority of the towns on the left will be constructed? and I didn't realise Botw 1 was a real map lol.. oops!

    Tentatively, when will the map be completed? My educated guess is a year later, this is a huge map. Here comes Ahlheim Laurenzbach RHD lol
