The map won't extend beyond its current scope. In one form or another, it has been evolving since 2012, it's taken us this long to get as far as we are - making it any bigger would just turn it into a Rig'n'Roll project. At some point when we have some spare time, we'll publish a road map of the route, however map building is the priority right now. The road structure in its entirety is 99.5% done - what we're doing now is fleshing out the scenery and adding pathing.

But I guess what we want really is some screenshots, so have a few I've taken in recent development.

Firstly, here we have the short section of road that runs past Berry Pomeroy. It'll be utilized by the faster 35 route variant (we're unsure what we're going to do with the route number - the 35 in its current form would be the slower local service, but we don't want to be renaming it to 35a, with 35 changing to be used for the faster service, so the faster service may be the X35 even though it's not a true express):

48457

48458

Remember, this is not the final form - there is still another level of polishing to do, it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi right now.

Next up we have an updated entry (from the Totnes direction) to Blagdon village. This is where you turn off the main road, do a sharp right then go over the bridge. The first picture you will see is an overview after I removed and re-placed the road, followed by screenshots of the area furnished with scenery:

48459

48460

48461

I also replaced the bodge bridge with something custom-made (please note that I've not put the full complement of faux shadowing in, and the textures want to be adjusted to be less jarring):

48462
48463

48464

Here we have the Blagdon bypass road, again, to be used by the faster 35 service:

48466

And finally, just a few miscellaneous screenshots of areas that have been touched up a little more:

48465

48467
48468
48469

As for what we're working on right now - unfortunately the crossroads junction at the top of Totnes Hill is not possible to be pathed, and the lane merge deflection was too severe - so the layout has had to be changed to allow a more realistic layout that can be pathed correctly. Here are a few screenshots of the overview:

48471
48472
48473

Lastly, I'd like to apologize for neglecting this thread - it's just simply easier to drop a few screenshots on Facebook occasionally rather than post here, but I'll make more of an effort in future.

These screenshots really show that some amount of time and effort has been put into the map. You've really captured the Devon countryside feel looking at the screenshots!

I'll look forward to seeing this map released in the future and seeing further development.

Map looks absolutely incredible. I've seen all the facebook pics as well and this could quite possibly be the best UK map for omsi in the future. Can't wait to drive on it! :)

the amount of effort and time that goes into making this map, i would be willing to pay (payware) for it plus any additional content and on/or steam. Keep up the good work! :)
Yeah so, the actual BotW v3 release on Steam will be free, but afterwards there will be an Extension Add-ons for BotW v3 and Cotterell, which will be payware. :)
At least that's what I've heard.

Hey iomex I'm just asking if BOTW Legacy Edition will be back or was it just for previews or BETA coz I really want to try it out but I dont think asking for a map is a good idea sorry if bothered you.

It certainly is. :)
They merged the Torre Abbey Sands area onto Paignton. 😨😄
Lol. You must admit they are doing a great job. Are they still merging Cotterell and BoTW together? Or is that just going to be a massive lag bomb?

We think that the route PR1 will be put onto BoTW v3 seeing as it is currently an AI route in 2.9.
