@SatoshiAaron he already has the tfl cd.






Okay... Here are the basic announcements for anyone who is interested:
*link removed*


EDIT:


I also started using the London Version of the B9LT. Absolutely amazing bus. Maybe something the newer buses could be based on.

Amazing work. I am loving it! There are a few things I would like to point out that could be improved on...

  1. The Rollerblinds are unrealistically textured. - It's not that much of a problem, but it does slightly bother me. I have actually remade my own ones if you would like to look at them:


  2. The iBus system struggles to perform properly. - I noticed a few issues with it and really struggle to get it working.


  3. It would be nice to have a variation of buses - I understand that it can take time to recreate the buses, but I have seen some good attempts at the B9TL, ALX400 and the Dennis Dart. Unfortunatly I haven't seen some of these released. If it is not something that is a focus at the moment, I think it would be great for more modders to get in on this to make some cool buses that we come to see around London Frequently.




Other than that, this project has gone amazing. It is the best attempt at something this big I have ever seen. I am so impressed. Please, keep up the good work!


P.S. I also presume you have the iBus recordings correct... I am expecting a CD soon with all of the recordings on there if you need some.

Hmm, these could work, only concern is that the background texture looks like it was taken from a manual blind (the destination set where you have to crank it manually, as seen in most London buses before 2010, whereas my buses use powerblinds, controlled with a Mobitec Unit. But I'm open to trying them out :D , how about we talk via PM?

The A23 - Streatham Hill/Streatham High Road, the area is the very first area to have the majority of its road-markings that I textured in blender replaced with ones from Roadhog's pack for more realism.  










Looks great @RhysGeoffrey really liking the detail keep up the good work. Can't wait for release! :)

Looks very nice, especially now that the front of the E400 is nailed. The rear of the E400 also looks very nice, however I think the sides could do with a bit of tidying up, as the edges of windows look slightly rough in places. Another thing to improve is the fact that the seats over the wheelarches need to have the same textures as the walls and panels of the interior. I have also noticed that the rear seats on the upper deck are different as to those used in the rest of the bus. However the new routemaster is spot on and just these little things will turn a good bus into an amazing bus.  :) Can't wait for release.

thanks but I haven't done anything to the buses within the past two weeks apart from removing the black lines between panels. But I'm going to rebuild the front sometime and just stick with the old styled bumpers at the front of the bus

This looks many times tidier already. I can see a few TSRGD compliance discrepancies, but that's only a minor criticism - the fact the scene looks good is the most important thing. I'd definitely say that the scene is fitting of a payware product.

I love it! I actually went to Brixton yesterday just to ride the No. 3. Now know my way around crystal palace, Kennington and Brixton thanks to this map! One thing though: Could we see a few more variations of bus shelter, for example the old style one which is still predominant around London. Loving the NB4L, The model is top quality.

Thanks guys, still a lot of things to improve, however I'm working down my list of things I personally want to improve accordingly. :)

This looks great, but if possible maybe remove those trolleys from the side of the Tesco, as that looks wierd. Maybe you can create a 2d stack of trolleys and put them on the side of the building?






May consider it, but the trolleys are part of the photo texture, so it may hinder  the look of the building

Mandela Way Bus Garage


Two bus garages in one, the bigger side being for Go-Ahead London and the smaller side (former East Thames Buses) being used temporarily as a Metroline Garage for route 168, as all of their garages of North London based, which of course the map barely stretches into.

The garage doors are animated too and a repaint for the add-on has been made with a bit of spare time I had last night.


Bricklayers Arms


A major gyratory, with a southbound flyover in Bermondsey, linking Tower Bridge, London Bridge, Elephant & Castle and Old Kent Road.
