Looks like a very nice start - as someone who is based in the East Midlands, I look forward to seeing how this develops! I'd be more than delighted to contribute any repaints or local knowledge you might want, too! Just give us a shout! :)

Still enjoy your Scunthorpe map. Not too familar with Lincoln apart from Steep Hill and the Cathedral. I'l check the video at work as a preview. Good to see you're working on maps again my man. But yes if you're able to BTV did a great tutorial on texture layout for pavements.

I have been meaning to update this thread for a while - At the minute, the focus is to get the 1/1a/2 town routes added, as they were around 2016, before the frequency was cut. I have also added a (fictional) route to Gainsborough Grammer School, which I have randomly numbered 642, to add some variety, and a fictional depot on the industrial estate off Marshall Way near Park Springs (to add the real depot would take another couple of months, as whole new areas would need to be built!)

If/When any other routes are added, it would have to be one of the out of town routes, and as most are very long by OMSI standards, I wouldn't want to commit to anything at this stage - Although the idea of adding the 100 to Scunthorpe, and merging the maps is appealing, it would be a huge undertaking distance wise and very fiddly to do the all merging that would be required!

Currently, scenery wise, around 90% is completed, and all driveable routes are now fully operating, so hopefully, in the next few months there will be some more updates!

Project Update

Work started on Gainsborough around 3 years ago. Due to personal circumstances, I do not have the same amount of time to commit to making maps for OMSI - therefore, I have decided to release Gainsborough in it's 95% complete state, so that the community can enjoy it as they wish. The 5% is made up of adding finer details, tidying up some junctions, tweaking AI rules etc. The map is perfectly playable, and is being released in the imminent future, so that it doesn't gather dust on my PC for another 6 months. The release should be considered as a public BETA almost, although several rounds of testing have taken place over the last couple of years.

So, What is Gainsborough
Gainsborough is a fairly small town, located in Lincolnshire, around mid-way between Scunthorpe & Lincoln. This map is semi-fictional. 90% of the scenery is representative of the real town, but some creativity has been put into the project. The operator in the OMSI version, is a modern re-incarnation of Lincolnshire Roadcar, who operated in the real town until 2005, when they were purchased by Stagecoach as part of the Yorkshire Traction group. The route network in the game has also been tweaked. The routes are:

1 - Gainsborough >> Park Springs >> Newlands >> Gainsborough (Every 30 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes), Takes 25 minutes to drive in full
2 - Gainsborough >> Newlands >> Park Springs >> Gainsborough (Every 30 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes) Takes 25 minutes to drive in full
3 - Lea Green >> Gainsborough >> Hospital >> Morton (Every 60 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytimes) Takes 30 minutes to drive each way
590 - Park Springs >> Newlands >. Town >> Morton >> QE High School (Once each way a day, school days only). Takes around 30 minutes to drive.

Generally, the 1 and 2 are operated by Enviro 200 MMCs, and the 3 and 590 by the ALX400.

Mr Moose, I hope the personal circumstances sort out and all will be well.
I've been a fan of your work in OMSI since Hertfordshire and welcome this, in whatever state.
 
Such amazing news @mrmoose!!!!
I am so much looking forward to this!! (And that's from someone who has never really been outside the of South England!)
And that ALX skin is looking absolutely splendid and tasty!! Mmmm!!
Loving all the work!! I have got two questions though. :)
1. Am I right in presuming that the last 5% of the map will follow as an update some time after release?
2. Will you also support (do skins for) @V3D's Optares pack? 😛 (I'd really like to see a RoadCar Spectra! 😊 )
Questions aside though, this looks magnificent, and it looks like a LOT of effort has gone into it.
Being able to speak as a map developer myself, I know how finicky the OMSI 2 editor is sometimes,
and I really appreciate anyone having the courage to actually start a map, and then not abandoning it and actually completing it.
Great work.

1 - Not sure, that's why I am releasing it. I had hoped to eventually create some other "rural" routes off the back of this, but I don't see how long that would be. The issue, generally, is not a lack of wanting too, but a lack of time to sit down and spend time working on a map. To put it into context, it has taken me around 6 months to complete scenery on the final mile of road.

2 - I didnt make the skins - they were kindly contributed to the project, so I can't say if more will be available - but I am sure somebody could create more if they wanted to!

Thanks

You're most welcome, thank you too for the answers! :)
Ah, I see... Well, you can be sure that I'll do some skins for Gainsborough once V3D's Optares are out! :D
