Hello, Fellow Bus Drivers
I have recently been working on a left path map which is based on Leigh In Greater Manchester the Main routes I will be trying to recreate into OMSI 2 is 575 - Bolton Inter - Old Lords Est which is ran by Diamond and over time I will add in the Arriva 575 which goes from Bolton to Wigan , the next route I will be making is 125, from Bolton Interchange to Chorley//Preston, eventually I will be trying to recreate most of the routes that goes to Bolton Interchange over the Years I will be doing this map for Free, and I will be doing it quickly then to update it in future with more and more detail as I can.

The map started off at Leigh Bus station including 588, 589 591 + 2 Fictional circular routes 579 592 which is ran by Jim Stones & LCT ( Leigh Community Transport (Fictional))
I have also included X88 Route which is Ran by Arriva Sapphire which is 588 but only stops at the canal and an estate in Lowton.

Will this include different bus companies? Yes it will that can range from Diamond North West, Arriva, First, Stagecoach/Stagecoach Gold. What year is this set in, It is set in 2018 as much as possible to keep it updated as much as possible.

I aim to make this map quite a big map so over years it will become larger.
I may be looking for some help if you Inbox me I mainly am Looking for Realistic Buildings that could improve detail of the map and realism.

Release of this map is still yet Unknown as of 28/10/2018 but I will be keeping updates coming of the map this map may take a while to make as I do not get alot of freetime.
As of now in the screenshots I have painted on the Roads for now but this will change in the future to propper made roads.

Just before you look In the After image the Freemans Buildings are removed due to sufficient permission when releasing, please aslo note in the after image I'm trying to figure out the shelters as seen in the Real Image of the area I hope you all appreciate the remake this will also be Little more friendly for low end pc's due to less thing sbeing used as I had to delete 100 splines ( Exaggeration ) Just to redo the bus station. Whole new Vehicle paths pavements and markings.

If you are concerned about performance, when your map is finished, you ought to look at converting the more complex constructions into objects, which will help. Also, removing Freemans objects is a good call - they're inefficient, poorly mapped in general and simply don't look good. There's an automated converter tool in the downloads section which ought to help you acquire unique objects.

Yeah It was only around Leigh, but because I used like the 2.5M dressing in the whole area to cover roads & did car paths uning invis splines, as you can imagine this got messy haha but yes I definitely will look into doing that and more reason of why I removed them. Glad you mentioned.

So after many hours of removing Leigh and it's un-needed 44 tiles (588 route) I have finally started on rebuilding Leigh, the aim for this is to get the roads as close as I am willing to give it the most accurate feel to the routes, This will not be done across the map fully but in the leigh area it will be accurate as I can work with the resources I can.

I most definitely will be don't worry unfortunately I gotta redo that, the editor crashed on me xD
Oh, I'm so sorry! :(
Good luck rebuilding it, at least you've got a reference image on how it's supposed to look in the end!
Also, I've found that even if you're frustrated when the editor crashes, when you do re-do it, it actually ends up looking better than the original. :)

I know doesnt look like much is going on but across the map are building appearing in the scenery and most of these buildings are either real represenations of the real ones or they are a model to represent whats there but not being exactly how it is I hope you guys are looking forward, but theres alot of work yet to be done.

To enhance the realism of the map I have decided to remove the tunnel and create what's actually there (Bolton Rd Ring Road) This will now allow me to create routes 36/37/8/X8 between bolton and manchester I hope this makes you all excited this is going to take some time to complete overall but I have alot of assets knocking around to make it slightly more realistic rather then fictional.

Just an update on what's going on unfortuantely I've lost quite alot of files regarding this map but ontop of that I felt this map has more potential with skills I learned in the editor, with that said I have decided I will be remaking this map, starting with a local route , 575 this will be a 20-25 min journey each way and I will be expanding from there I hope yous can understand my frustration with losing the progress I have but I will be remake it to a higher standard.

Losing progress is like the worst thing that can happen to a developer lets be honest. Good luck though. :)
