A challenging UK based map made to test your driving capabilities and something fairly different to your normal Omsi map.
There are mountain hairpins, narrow villages, country roads, parked estates and a speedy dual carriageway. Make sure to look at your mirrors and get a real feel for the size for your bus.

PLEASE USE THE RECOMMENDED BUSES!! Or you may get stuck up a hill or not fit around corner.
Read the ReadMe file under Documents in the Download\Smarden, it has some driving tips.

Absoloutley loving this map! I think it's amazing and have decided to make changes to the routes, combining parts of the 300, 304, 314, 347 & 349 together to make a really long route :) The timetable is below if anyone is interested https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IIoAtxBdoHijEhz5EAnFVTMwfNaAr385/view?usp=sharing

Glad you like it and a very nice timetable.
The map is good, but could be better in so much ways.

I'm sorry but how am I supposed to like a map which has a level of fictionality which I haven't seen before (even in real life).

For a start, why are the hills so challenging to drive up and it gets so much to the point where the passengers think that I am driving bad and want off....

Secondly, the roads. It is clearly evident that on some of the roads that complete fictionality can be seen. This for me is very unrealistic as in real life, some of the these roads I have never ever seen about and where I have seen something similar to them, they are drivable roads which do not cause passengers to want off my bus. Also on the topic of roads, in some areas there are clear crash zones which could of been avoided at all costs whilst the map was been built. For me, this is my biggest problem with the map.

Thirdly, the general feeling. Even though (possibly) the main town (Wantsum) is good, some of the other towns/villages are very unrealistic and as mentioned with some of the roads, it is evident that fictionality has been used to build them.

Overall, this is a poor map and a map which I would not recommend to the new OMSI players.

You can drive slowly around the bends and the passengers won't complain, there's like one or two corners where they do, because omsi.
Indeed, some roads are based of complete fictionality, it's a semi-fictional map.
I didn't focus on hitboxes on the map, sorry, turn collisions off and it will be fine.
I have pushed some areas to extremes but seriously, have you seen some of the skill bus drivers have, the places they drive are insane and the skill is amazing, you should go on some different buses in real-life, you will be impressed.
I like the Map it's tight and would be challenging if you were able to drive with collisions off. If the Hitbox were fixed and the map was fully driveable I would give it a 5 star.
Great map really fun and challenging to drive - have managed to get the B7L and B10BLE on the 349's without hitting anything albeit the journey took over an hour and 15min. Would love to see more high-speed motorway routes though in the future!
Amazing map! Very challenging too aswell and nice roads. Ik the map is fictional but most of the town names are in Kent and Sussex which is nice. and most of them seem to be pretty nearby each other aswell.
Great Map! just like to say most of the ppl moaning about this map i would like to see you try and make a map yourselves done a great job here, i know i would never have the patience to make one myself so good on you. ;)
I was really looking forward to this map. After spending 2 hours trying to get it to work, the issue was resolved on my end. I must say I was disappointed to say that the villages and scenery is very samey. Very little to distinguish between each place. Also, the roads are unrealistically tight. I understand that the map is fictional, but it just seems silly to be driving a double decker bus down roads that barely fit a car. Aside from that, the challenge was interesting and I will drive the map some more.
Overall the idea of this map is very good. It's nice to have another map with long routes that isn't just looping the same areas 3 times over. There's certainly room for improvement and as fun as the narrow roads are, some do need to be widened, IRL a bus would never even attempt to get down some of them. AI pathing is done well - a pleasant surprise for a UK map and the documentation is comes with is very detailed. The concept of having regular routes as well as those irregular ones you usually see being run by 02 reg Solo's is brilliant as well. Overall, a job well done and hope to see continued improvements!
Now, I would give this 5 stars as it is an amazing map! But, none of the repaints for my buses are loading and hardly any textures (they show as white) which is kinda annoying me so I was wondering how I can stop this? And yes I have uninstalled the map and re-installed it.
Thanks :)
Nice map to challenge player's driving skills!
