This map looks great, it'd be really nice to have a company like Arriva run the map as they are down in essex and there isn't a map which uses Arriva as standard yet.

UPDATE 30/08/19
With having a few days away from SC it has given me so new inspiration and with help with my friends i have updated some areas of the map which too basic. So see below what areas have been done and where the route is off to next!

Morden Way: Originally it was just houses against the pavement here and not they have been pushed back replaced by a wall one side with the houses behind and the otherside with stairs making it muilti levelled.

This hill is just after you exit the town and it use to be trees either side that were attached to the spline however one side has been removed to create a field
and the other is due to be remade.

Brendon Cottages: This area has just had a minor flora update.

A new junction before Oxham

Oxham; The village has had muitliple upadtes with the scenery making more wider and making the the narrow road even more narrow.

This is where the route is due to go past a new lake and some mountain before it start getting hilly as the route proceeds toward Maldom. As you can see its very WIP.

Thats it for this update i'm gonna be on and off with the project as I dont want to lose motivation for it.
So with that said I'm always open to suggestions on what i can change or add.

More regular screenshots are posted on Fulleyloves Discord which can be joined by pressing the link below

OPERATORS HAS BEEN DECIDED HOWEVER IS NOT FINAL. 31/08/19
I have finally made my mind up on what operators will be in the map. For the drivable route its going to be Ensign bus company based in southern Essex. And the other operator in the map will be Silver Cross Transport which the livery will be decided on a later date!

UPDATE 02/08/19Their has been quite of progress with the map lately the map has now reached Maldom one of the villages along the way! The town centre has had more scenery put into it so it now feels like a town of some sort.
Oxham:




This has a small redo by the narrow road by adding a elevated piece and a retaining wall making it feel more detailed.

Silver Cross Town centre: The road around the town have been bare since the start but now i have had the motivation to do it and it looks and feels alot nicer then open flat fields.

Maldom: here is the new part of the map Maldom Village this has taken me quite a few hours to do and will require much much more to get it finished but the start i think is looking good,

UPDATE 09/08019
So whats been going on?
The main thing that has happened that the map has new road textures now maing the map feels alot nicers and more professional (Thanks @Tom99962)

The map has had minor tweaks and changes like additional signage and just a general tidy up.
Overall the map at the moment is about 40% complete, however some parts of the map need updating and changing all together but that will come at a later stage
.

Hopefully soon more textures will be replacd and more screenshots will appear.
Thanks Davidsb3

UPDATE 11/10/19
So after finally getting some time and motivation on my hands i have done quite a bit of work to the town of Silver Cross. So in the last post i said i did some Reconstruction... well it was more like tearing out 2 roads and replacing it with about 6 or 7...... why do i do this ;)

Fenix Way
Silver Cross 152.JPG

This is the first new road of the reconstruction the road starts where the old one began however thats where the similarity's end . instead of it connecting up to the aldi nice and simply it take a detour and has allowed me to expand the town quite a bit as will shown in another screenshot. the road is a heavy WIP and is lacking a lot of detail it will get it when i can be bothered :P .

London Road
Silver Cross 153.JPG
Silver Cross 154.JPG

This is the new "dual carriage way" section of the map. This has been a pain to do but has been worth it but needs a lot more work to get it any where done. But atm i am quite happy with it.

This is an Ariel view of what i have got left to make the town semi decent it will take alot of work but hopefully will be worth it!

Thats it for this update but i will leave you with a extra screenshot of V3Ds mmc at Maldom.
Thanks guys Davidsb3

UPDATE 20/10/19
So whats been going on? Well a lot, actually. A lot of improving old areas again to make the map feel much nicer.
The map has been extended past Maldom yet but that isn't going to be for a while until everything i want to is done.

Anyway, let's get into what I have been doing.

Arkala Avenue

This road has had a vast upgrade and is still not 100% done but for now I am really happy with it, to what it used to look like.

More details have been added as well, e.g bike lanes and parking areas.

Morden Way

20191020121330_1.jpg
20191020121357_1.jpg

This road has had the most work done to it by being destroyed and re-routed. It's a very heavy WIP but I'm really liking it and it makes the areas look a lot nicer. To show you what Morden Way used to look like, I have posted a screenshot below. Hopefully you will agree the new Morden Way looks a lot nicer. :)

Well I hope you enjoyed this update and are enjoying the progress being made.
Thanks, Davidsb3
