This is another nice new map to look forward to. Unless you have decided the buses to use already. I would recommend the ALX400 Trident from V3D Studios, The C400R, Citaro or the MAN A21 as those buses are available from here and it would save the hassle for going elsewhere to download another bus. But there is the Enviro 400 MMC that in development along with the Wright Gemini and Streetdeck Pack as well as the Wright Streetlite. But the choice is up to you mate but I will say keep up the great work mate :).

Thank you for your kind words!

The likelihood is that it will be the E200 MMC by V3D and the Wrightbus Streetdeck by BlueOrange as, from the screenshots I've seen, they are the highest quality buses to come out of the community so far. This is, of course, subject to change.

I wouldn’t use the MMC by V3D for reasons I’m not going into here. Masterswitch Studios are working on an E200MMC that would be higher quality.

Aye its best not to use the V3D E200 MMC as to cut it short. Its not an official release. Best to stick to legitimately released buses such as those in the download library on here. It would make it easier to access the required buses. Another option would be to wait until the Masterswitch Studios version comes out which would be better if you still wanted to use the E200 MMC mate :). There are some other great buses to come from them as well once they are finished and thoroughly tested.

Hope this helps.

I agree! :)

I agree, yet I'm not sure which would be higher quality – I'd say they'll both be the same, but who knows really.
Anyways, I'm not here to argue, let's get back on topic. :)

Thanks for your comment. Thanks for letting me know about the MS one as I didn't know they were making one. Will probably take a look at a few options before picking a final option.

Thanks for your reply. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure about what happened with V3D (and quite frankly don't want to) and as a result I'll still have a look at his E200 when it's released (as right now - I have no reason not to). I also didn't know MS were making one so will assess that one when it is released too. Best single deck bus available at the time will be the one that shall be picked.

UPDATE #6 - 19th May 2019

Just a brief update. Lots of the work done doesn't really require screeenshots or mentioning as it's very minor.

1. Completely re-did the high street area to make it look a small bit more convincing and appealing.

2. Added traffic lights to some of the junctions.

3. Added some houses and additional details on the main road from Kilcornan to Kilmanagh.

4. Some more, smaller fixes to various areas of the map, including:
- added some kerbs,
- added some new bus stops,
- new flora across the map,
- removed trees from inside of walls,
- various detailing around the supermarket area.

Thanks everyone for your continued support.

That looks great mate and to be honest. Its up to you which buses that you will choose for the map. Although I will probably use the DMS on this route as I like older buses as well as the newer ones :).

That E400 in the images does fit in well though and I shall look forward to using this map in a future let's play as I am liking the progress. I am pleased to see an Irish map being made for OMSI 2.

PROGRESS UPDATE - 19th August 2019

Right so here's where we're at folks.

Basically I've decided to start from scratch. When I started the original Kilmanagh, my map editing skill and experience were both low. Since then I feel I have gained a better skillset and more of an eagle eye for detail.

I also want to take the map in a completely different direction to where the old one was going. Completely different.

I didn't want to try to release something that did not best reflect the vision I had for the map aswell as the hours and work I put in. I hope you understand my position.

I will provide a much larger post with more detail and background of the new Kilmanagh in the near future but for now please enjoy one or two screenshots of the roundabout I've been working on for far too long over the last few days on the new map.

As always, constructive feedback is welcomed.

(N.B: The screenshots are an early WIP as every time I look at them, I notice even more that needs to be changed/added.)

Ooh this looks amazing!!
Great job!
Only thing I would slighty change is that the ground texture doesn't loop itself that showingly. ;)

Appreciate the feedback.

Unfortunately this was the best texture I could find that fitted what I wanted it to do. I think it looks more obvious as it’s a texture people haven’t seen before but if you compare it to the original OMSI default grass - it isn’t much more repetitive than that.

That being said I agree with you and will try to find a workaround.

Ah ok. :)
Good luck with the map!
