A topic for discussion of new buses in OMSI.


The Optare Solo has just had an update which fixes most of the lighting issues, meaning it's now good to go as an AI bus! It also has a working ticket printer now.


However, there's still the question over whether the maker is entitled to the content he produces, so I won't link it.

Not really keen on all these MM2 converts appearing, they're just not high quality enough models due to having to be low poly so MM2 could handle them, I would go as far to say some of them are eyesores. Not necessarily anyone's fault there, it's just the way it happens. For example the ALX300 was one of my favourite buses back in the day, but it does need a proper dash for OMSI instead of a static image with the sd202 wheel tacked on. I also don't think he has permission to convert them, considering a lot of the original buses were locked.

The most accurate sounding bus in OMSI is back again! As somebody who commuted on Euro 4 B7RLEs for a year, I can confirm that this is exactly what they sound like - a stunning piece of work!


Headphones recommended. Skip to 4:30 for drive.

Those wheels look suspiciously like the ones from Winsome's Enviro. I could be mistaken of course. :ph34r:

I noticed that too, but from what I understand they're building it from scratch, including engine sounds.

I reckon the front wheel texture might be a Winsome one. That's not to say they won't find permission to use it, of course, it has been known.


It looks like a very nice model, and the dashboard is looking good, though I hope that the texturing will improve, especially on the interior which has that typical flat-texture syndrome.

Are these the guys that operated that pirate OMSI addon site ripping off people's mods? If I'm not mistaken it was definitely a similar name, it may not be these guys though.

I think that was OMSI buses UK (and games UK), not OMSI UK buses... Yeah, bit similar...

^ Yeah it was... I doubt if they were pirates they'd develop something like this though. They would be too busy trying to steal content :P

That's true the interior does look like it needs some improvement texture-wise.

UK version of the E200, thats great news!
Certainly is, especially the 2 door variant, as I don't think there are any dual door RHD single-decks yet.

I personally don't mind paying for something of that quality. I have never heard an OMSI bus sound so spot-on.

If it is payware, then I will buy it for sure, just because it sounds so good.
