I am hoping for realistic timetables. I did struggle to keep to time on South London. If rather not drive like a rally driver just to keep to time.
In london we dont stick to timetables cause busy routes like the 3 always end up getting late. Instead london buses operate by maintaining vehicle gaps within the service. the only routes you will find sticking to a timetable would be the nonfrequent and elderly people routes

I thought this was fiction when I saw it, must be due to the ULEZ boundary plus the ENXs are in seriously poor condition. Spoke to Peter at E and he confirmed this today. Itll be interesting but the 279 could do with them tbh. The 313 is a short route

Not sure whether to be offended or not by this. I dont make things up like this. Never have. :)

TBF, most people who don't know about the 313 LT conversion already would probably think it's fake as it's hard to believe lol that a single decker, cross border route gets converted to LT's

Back on topic - What route(s) are you guys looking forward to driving?
I don't know about routes but I was planning to take the KMB Volvo Olympian (the air conditioned one with the TD102KF and Voith combination) out and around London but I've since done a full reinstall and I don't have them anymore. It's one of a few that I miss that aren't available anymore. I guess I will do the 3 to see how much it has changed since TSLP or whatever takes you by Waterloo to se if RM modelled the siren on the bridge (I'm thinking it's unlikely due to it's size but it would be amazing if it is there as they are a part of history).

I'd love to thrash anything with a voith engine fitted in it. Especially down the 3 between Kennington - Brixton and on other routes (where the space between stops allows)

Fingers crossed the timetables will a lot more realistic. I've spent time timing each route from end to end before scheduling them. I've also allowed slightly extra time on certain routes to allow you to complete it without speeding. For example, Route 3 is scheduled to take 55 mins between Crystal Palace and Oxford Circus. The first 20 mins of the route allows you to get to Brixton with relatively no ease and the remaining 35 mins is spent trying to bolster your way through traffic up to Oxford Circus.

I'm in the process of doing the finalised timetables for the remaining routes this week, so it's perfect I saw this message.
Would there be more areas added in later after release like Kings Cross? And Im guessing when SP and MS both finish the London variants of each respective bus, they will be supported for London with Hof files including iBus announcements? And what did I keep telling you peoples, dont be a pain to Rhys then we get results! ;):kappa: Lovely work Rhys!
I'll never say never, but I think after London is out, I need to move onto something new, just for my own sanity :D
so in hail and ride (london) we do have checkpoints. These are half busstop flags that indicate popular stop rerquests where it is safe to do so. I dont know if they have them on the 322 tho
They work exactly like how you've suggested them. I've made those half bus stops to indicate where it's safe to stop. OMSI doesn't allow for a proper hail & ride, but I think once you all see it, it should be rather interesting :D

I get that one Rhys, I'm starting to Build a New bus sim for Canberra (Australia) to be a cross between OMSI 2 and CBS series and doing that with the rest of the final years of Schooling plus doing it all by myself at the moment with little knowledge to building games and 3D modeling to the standards that what you have achieved with the Add-On. Creating the whole Canberra network (including 90ish routes for weekdays and not including the school runs as well and then weekend routes and Christmas day routes) If you have any tips and that for me, I would appreciate the advice and or help if anyone would like to help. I understand your struggles with mental disorders, got the same as you and that but even though we have these things, it makes us more determined to get things done and done Right! Take Care Rhys :cool:

It sure will be definently intresting to see how the hail and ride sections work in-game
