I think it would be a good idea to have a section for all other games that aren't OMSI, ETS or ATS. :)

Yeah that would be good, I was trying to decide ages ago but whistlehead said it would be too cluttered if nobody would use them

Perhaps we should add a screenshots of other sims section to the forum? Or maybe make one forum for "Other sims" and put a subforum in for each different sim? Don't think we need a full forum section for every sim

Yeah that could work. Another idea would be to have one forum and have the poster add a tag which would show what game they're talking about?

Mmm... Seems like a bad idea using tags as it would probably end up in staff having to add tags to posts after people forget.

I like the idea but I'm not too sure on tags... there's a possibility that it could work though..

Ehh, I wouldn't bother with tags as having one for each sim would be messy, and what about unlisted ones? What I'd do is just let people post and then if certain games get really popular like Assetto Corsa or train sim it could get it's own sub board

I like that idea.

I also agree. That way we are seeing what games are the most popular between our members, and expand the Forums and improve them more and more. It also means that we don't have a whole load of inactive forum sections :D

I really like Chris' Tettau challenge; here's an idea... how about making a weekly challenge or contest of a similar style? Not necessarily doing a route the fastest, but maybe keeping to a tight timetable on a route, getting a particular bus around a route that's too big, that type of thing.

I was thinking exactly this on my way back home today. I'm certainly up for it.


Start with the OMSI Top Gear test track, perhaps? :P Any bus goes, but if you mod it for more power you have to link it for others to use. Maybe have a Modded and unmodded category.

Yes, although you might have to be careful on sharing modded versions depending on what it is.

I'd say it would be more fair and easier to make it so people have to use the same mod for the challenge, but we have a variety of different mods for each challenge and change them every week.

Maybe can we add a thing so that adding a signature is easier to find?

Hmm I'm not sure it could get much easier than Top right of the screen where you are logged in > Account Settings > Signature :P

Just a text-based label in the uppermost bar, clicking on it goes through to the relevant user's streaming page. Not sure how you'd get that to work, mind, but would be better than spamming chats maybe?

Weren't we gonna have a Minecraft server?


Because if we were then I think we need a Minecraft section.

The Minecraft server is indeed coming! It will be a bit of a surprise mind you for what we have been working on :)
