Several map designers, (who you probably haven't heard of!), have been getting together to create this fictional map set in North Devon. We will release a lot more information later as we are just finalising place names etc. Anyway, we have made a lot of progress over the last months and now have something to show! All the routes start in Stanton and two will be open deck buses as seen in these screenshots. If anyone wants to join our team, message us.

This work in progress was cancelled by the "South England Design Team" when the team disbanded. However, one of the members of the team is continuing the development on his own, here:

Just a little more information about the map...


There will be a demo version with a shortened route 1. This will be ready soon.

The bus company is based in Stanton. All the routes apart from the 7, start their journey here. Stanton is a small village located in North Devon.


Valdon is slightly to the south and Carmichael just a little further. Carmichael is the largest town and will have many AI routes. After the demo, a small update will be released including the route 5, and the two specially branded, Coastal Breezer's; 4 & 6. The full release will then include the routes 2, 3, 5 & 7. After this, an extra bonus pack may be released including the full route 56 across to the town of Torre in South Devon and a new map featuring the same routes, just re-numbered, older AI vehicles, older buildings and scenery.


The main bus company is called North Devon Motor Services and all the buses, except the Coastal Breezer's, are painted in white and blue livery. This will be updated by the full release. Two AI routes in Stanton are run by Stagecoach and many in Carmichael will be run by other companies. In the demo, the only buses required will be the Gemini 2 V2.6 and the Leyland Fleetline in the Farthington Demo by Whistlehead.


The route distances average around 20 miles apart from the route 56, if released, will be 62 miles.

All our other custom objects worked, can't understand why this one won't!

Did you have the mesh selected when you exported it? By default blender only exports selected items

**           We have many buses on our list. If we can find someone to do it in Blender then all will e             made. If not, we will create the simpler ones ourselves and some routes will change. If the   selected bus for that route is not completed on time, it will stay the same as before.


***        If @RhysGeoffrey buses are completed on time, they will use these. Winsome and GX7767 Studio's        ones have a rear door and are unrealistic. Therefore we will not use them.  If the                selected bus for that route is not completed on time, it will stay the same as before.


****     If @Road-hog123 Dennis Dart is complete before us it will use this. The current Dart out there is not      up to the standard we believe Omsi 2 English Vehicles should be and therefore will not use               it. If the selected bus for that route is not completed on time, it will stay the same as before.


The 3rd party buses we are using, we believe are equivalent to the standard RHD buses should be. Equal to that of LHD.

Secondly, the frequency of the route 4, the sheer amount of routes and the small space at the existing terminus has left us with only one option. We are now building a full scale bus terminus a little out of Stanton, where the previous one was. Screenshots of this will be flooding in over the next few days!

You'll have to redo your images - looks like they were lost when the server cooked.

All the documents for the demo are now complete, Stanton is looking very close to release, a few touches in the countryside and the whole of Valdon left to complete. Then we can start broadening our view and plan for the next routes to be completed. Demo should be ready for Beta Testing soon. If you want to help with Beta Testing PM us.


I have been working on a different real life map, whilst others have been optimising Stanton as it is getting a little heavy. More work today should see a little progress later...
