Welcome back to 'Buses of the Westcountry' - in this second edition of the map. This thread will document changes as they happen, contributed to by people working on the map.


What's new in BotW 2?

  • Collaboration - BotW is now a UKDT project. Totnes has been rebuilt by Whistlehead while I redo Paignton. Other members may join later
  • Huge improvements to the look and feel of the map
  • This will now be a network style map - with Cotterell being added on in the future at the other end of a long motorway
  • The entire map is being either replaced or refurbished

Please be patient - this map is far from its next update. This map pre-dates OMSI 2, so there are endemic issues which need to be resolved in addition to building the map.

New depot building buit, but not yet in situ (as I don't have the Paignton end of the map). Features refuelling, washing and inspection pits! (which you can't fall into because making the terrain invisible for the holes doesn't actually stop you from colliding with it...


I'll probably release this individually before BotW 2 - it has a sign which can be changed without repainting the whole model, so it can change to whatever you prefer.

I've managed to get the model back, and I've tidied up all the textures and tweaked a few things. It's pretty much done, I reckon :)

I've tweaked Totnes town centre by moving the roundabout, adding a hill and putting in buildings and a monument from the real Totnes. Happier with it now :)

I've also started working on the route the X35 uses to continue on to Totnes Parkway (the new train station).

Neither of these areas is quite finished yet, but I thought you'd like to see the progress :)

I have to say that this is becoming one of the best looking maps I've ever seen! :)  
Ta very much! :) It wouldn't be going very far without some of your buildings. Actually, it might not even be worth doing without them. Now there's an odd thought.


Here's one I forgot. I put in a model of the East Gate Arch:

You'll look straight down this road as you exit the bus station. This finally has the real character of Totnes, I reckon

Now this looks like it will be fun! Great work, loving the flags!

That's currently me (Totnes) and Iomex (Paignton). What do you want to ask about?

Great job guys! If Cotterell is anything to go by, this will be amazing!

Well there's a quality < --- > quantity scale in OMSI you cannot avoid. BotW will not be as detailed as Cotterell, but I certainly learned lessons building it and will apply them to BotW 2. I'd like the same level of quality and am aiming for that, but it's just not practical. It took 6 months to build a 15 minute route for Cotterell - the 35 in BotW is twice that long, and the P&R is the same again.

BOTW is still quite detailed from my opinion, like BOTW 1 is so nice to just hop on and have a drive, I really can't wait for BOTW 2 as it's going to add more fun to the game, if you get where I'm coming from.
