That sounds like quite a lot. Possible extension in the future to Cotterell(Bath) for the X31.
I have a Plan set in motion to try and make my first map and all be it im not that familiar with the editor but I plan to take my time to learn,

The Idea is to base this map in Wiltshire, Now I don't yet know how big I am going to make this map cause naturally Wiltshire is a Really Rural Area and so is mostly town to town, however here is the basic concept:

I plan to get used to the Editor which is going well so far and enjoying it actually cause its something new,

Due to this im going to be starting off with 1 route and expanding from there.

My Plan is to start with the X33 Route from Devizes Town Market Place to Chippenham Trains Station (The X33 Does not include Calne) now I could of done a town service route like the 44's for Chippenham or the 1A . C or D service in Devizes but I simply just do not know them, however after taking the X33 for the last year and a half 4 days a week I know the X33 Route Pretty Much of by Heart and if I was looking at realistic Size, the map would be comparable in size and length with BOTW with the route taking about 30 - 40 min but again whether I will do a route that long at my level of knowledge may not happen and so may do it slightly shorter but still somewhat realistic,

The Towns / Villages in order would be:

Devizes - Rowde - Bromham - Derry Hill - Pewsham - Chippenham and back

Just want to know your thoughts on this.

Please bare in mind this is my first time trying this and so im just making the concept however Ive always wanted to do this so im gonna give it a real go.
and tips would be nice.

The Other thing is that the X33 route tends to run With an Enviro 200 however I don't have a full on Enviro 200 that 100% Works and I cant seem to get one of the Optare Solo either so looks like its gonna be a Volvo Eclipse for the main bus however an ALX 400 is used sometimes on School Runs so that is also a possibility I will try and track down an Enviro 200 but we shall see.

so what do you guys think of my plan?

Also I do plan to add Extra Routes and towns once the X33 Route is Complete and Working properly.

I did have the X31 in Mind however one of the routes I wanted to do after the X33 was the Normal 33 and include Calne then get Swindon in for the 55 Route but X31 is on my list of things to do.

Hello , I am going to try and improve the dennis dart that has already been made to make it up to the c400r's standards. Does anyone know how I would get started?

This is a place where if you're thinking of starting a new project, you can bounce ideas back and forth off other members of the community.
I have little experience with the editor but the idea of having my home city in the game would fascinate me. I am from liverpool and busses here are a big part of my life, I was aiming to sometime soon start on a demo of the 10 line from liverpool to st. helens. I do not think I yet have access to the required buildings, objects, splines or time, but Recreating liverpool is a challenge that I am willing to try. Any map creators, let me know what you think. :)
