Hi all since October I have been making a map called Stowtenxbridge, I feel I have made enough progress to branch out from my Discord server to Fellowsfilm.
Please note, Stowtenxbridge is a completely fictional map set in the UK.

Some Background:
The town is located upon the river Hallstead and the infrastructure of the county "Greater Desmond" is based around this river. Similar to "Greater Manchester", the county was built up during the industrial revolution as little mining villages and towns. Goods used to be transported up and down the river on boats. Since then the roads have taken over and towns have developed to be larger and larger. Desmond (a large town/small city) is located to the north of Stowten. Up to 2012 a family company ran the area of Greater Desmond however, due to the high demand for bus routes throughout the county, Eskoth's Buses couldn't cope, therefore ceasing operation on the Sunday 2nd December 2012.

As of Monday 3rd December 2012 First took over all 15 routes and 20 buses from Eskoth's Buses. First still commemorate their excellent service for their 60 years of operation with a half painted first bus and the other half in Eskoth's livery.

Current Operations:
First currently operate all routes in the Greater Desmond area with two Stagecoach gold routes operating from Hesketh to Greater Desmond, these routes will be ai only however, these may be playable in the future. I aim for 3 routes in the final release, however there could be more:
  • 1 - Desmond City Bus Station - Burnvale Park & Ride (15-20 minutes)
  • 500 - Stowten Interchange - Yew Tree Retail Park (30-40 minutes)
  • 582 - Stowten Interchange - Desmond City Bus Station (with different terminating points due to times) (60-70 minutes)
Please note: All questions about release dates, beta testing and updates will be ignored.
Can I have BETA?
No, BETA testers will be chosen when the time comes. In other words, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

When is this going to be released?
It will be released when it's released. Don't worry, i'll let you all know.


What company(ies) will be operating on the map?
Firstbus


Where in the UK is this map set?
England, It's a fictional map so, the general area.


Once the map is released, will you continue to work on it/add more routes and update it?
Possibly, we'll see won't we!


What routes are on the map?
Look above, it is stated there.


Please note all screenshots are WIP and if they are lacking scenery it will be added:

Wow, looks really good so far! I can’t wait to see what this map turns into, especially as your map making skills have really improved since your first attempt at creating! Keep up the great work!

Right only a small update this time however i have run into a brick wall.

Right so the actual update: I have created the first spline for the map which will be used on the A949 towards Highfield and Desmond

However, everything is at the same level and I'm not sure how to lower the road but not the pavement in the scripts.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently but I have been working on the map, I have built a new junction down the A949, this is about a half a mile from the previous massive one and it's coming along very nicely
Please note, the map is WIP and not representative of the final product.
This are is not finished​
I have only completed the scenery on one side of the junction but, I think, its coming along quite nicely.
