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 Poor, outdated map construction has been mitigated, common complaints addressed, general optimization, as well as higher quality assets.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.

Excellent Game but, I have some white pixels and stuff please help me :c
I love omsi 1 and 2 but a few maps like Sutton Coldfield and buses of the west country maps dont work any one can help that will be great
Information & History:
This map is a fictionalised parody version of the Devonian bus route from Totnes to Paignton, via the small village of Berry Pomeroy. In real life, the route is serviced by Scania N230UD Stagecoach Gold Enviro400 and Volvo B7TL Plaxton Presidents buses ran by Rail River Link (open top and dual door closed, with installed Ticketer ticket machines) and doesn't run via Berry Pomeroy.

Review:
In short, BotW v2.9 is a truly excellent map, and is in my opinion a magnificent example of the great skills that UKDT possesses, even though the map's description may state otherwise.
I would recommend it to anyone that has even the slightest interest in simulating fictional Great Britain in OMSI 2. :)
I'm very impressed with this map, didn't expect the map to that large however I find I can freely drive buses to test them for ages without having to looping around the map. I do wish that it would require Flora 3 instead of Flora 2 but great news is that you can have both versions of Flora installed at once. I'd honestly recommend this map if your looking for a UK based map for UK layout buses.

Thanks for the feedback. We're looking at a simple plugin which alters the references for flora assets so you don't have to have 2 installed anymore.
Having problems with recent updates I can't find the omsi 2 file mentioned in pdf read me file to upload to omsi .
Please help

Are you referring to Tony_A objects? AussieX has been down for a long time, however the assets were recently reuploaded to FF here: https://fellowsfilm.com/downloads/tony_a-objects.1770/
Its a really really good map to drive on and is great fun for a 35 minute drive. The only problem is I like driving with collisions on but at Burton Street there is a little invisible block around the bus stop.Its still a fun map to play on though!
This map is very good indeed! Its very well detailed, installation is nice and easy and it is a pleasure to drive route 35! Many thanks for all your hard work.
Just some things to note which could be fixed to make it even more epic:
1. AI busses don't seem to run with lights at night
2. Some traffic don't want to stop at roundabouts for other traffic and also at peak times the busses do not want to leave Paignton bus station I waited behind one for quite some time.
3. Passengers consistently complain about too many coins when giving change. (There may be a way to fix this if so please enlighten me).

These are just minor details, I'm just suggesting this could be some things to look at for the next(?) update!
I do indeed recommend this map to anyone who is sick of left hand drive omsi!
Many thanks for your hard work on this map!

Hi, thanks for the feedback. Regarding your points:

1: This an issue with the bus itself (unfortunately there's nothing in the change log regarding this, and the author isn't around at the time of writing to ask). Do you have the latest version? I assume you are referring to the C400R?

2: Unfortunately it is very difficult to get pathing 'just right' in OMSI, as the AI is very difficult to work with. It's just 'one of those things'... perhaps try lowering the amount of traffic slightly to give vehicles a fighting chance?

3: This is pretty much a meme in OMSI. It's a feature of the game itself and not something we control.

As is stands with the age of the map, we're not looking to update it any further, unless the issues are major game-breakers. It's a very old map and our skills have improved since, so niggles like that are to be expected with something of its age.
This map is outstanding! Plenty of detail and nice framerate when driving. Another great UKDT add-on! This is by far my favourite map to drive on my list of maps.

For those that are having issues with the map not loading, the map has assets from external downloads. Open and read the ReadMe file within this map's folder with links to it's dependences. Install those and the map should load.
the map wont load is probably because you need to read the readme fil and install the links
I cant see the map and when i go to spawn a bus it puts me in nowhere Please fix this

Thanks,
Daisy
