October 2019 Update

The streets and layout of Strathshire have now been finalised and there are now only little areas of scenery to finish off and some junctions to path.

The City Centre has been completely demolished, and remodelled from the ground up, to represent a redeveloped City Centre, whilst still maintaining the historic feel in certain areas.

You may have noticed in screenshots that Arriva has been dropped - fear not, it hasn't! The map will make use of OMSI's chrono feature (only for the operators, nothing else!), which will allow me to have the map set in two times:

The year of 2017 will be operated by Arriva, using their fleet of London Citybus 400R and ADL Enviro200 MMCs. However, in 2018, Xplore Strathshire buys out Arriva and will operate the routes into the future. On the subject of routes, these have been finalised as follows:

  • 25: Strathdon City Centre <-> Strathdon P&R, direct via: Robertson Road
  • 28: Strathdon City Centre <-> Strathdon P&R, via: Reid Street, Strathdon Hospital and Foxglove Estate
  • 49: Strathdon City Centre <-> Carmyllie, via: Robertson Road, Strathdon P&R and Forties/Hillside Estates
  • X49: Strathdon City Centre <-> Carmyllie, via: Queensway and Forties/Hillside Estates. (peak time only service Mon-Fri)
  • 69A/69C: Strathdon P&R <-> Carmyllie Circular, via Strathdon Hospital & Forties/Hillside Estates.
To confirm, Strathshire will be completely free and will be hosted on Fellowsfilm. The final vehicle allocation for the Xplore era is still to be finalised, as this depends entirely on when the Masterswitch Masterdeck demo is released, as I do not wish to place a burden on those who do not have this DLC.

In summary, what have I still to do?

  • Finish the scenery. This isn't a big job.
  • Path the last few junctions (strong coffee will be needed I think)
  • Commence beta testing - whilst this is ongoing, I plan to optimise the worst areas of the map (mostly around the Park & Ride), retexture buildings, streamline add road signage, etc.
  • Compile supplementary documents - a manual, PDF timetables, running boards, etc. Although many may see this as unnecessary, I feel it adds to the realism.
I've attached some screenshots in the spoiler below which show various areas of the map (you may have seen these on Facebook already), and I've included the latest roadmap too.

Thanks as always for the support, and remember to give the

Looks fantastic regarding the vechile allocation is there not a way you could release the map but have two ai list one with out the streetdeck dlc and then one with the dlc ? Just a suggestion especially for people who don’t know or are not that great at changing the ai list them selfs

Where justified, anyway. Not just incongruously dropped in. This presented a fairly unique use case on private land where reversing the usual flow of traffic removed conflicts.

Whoa!! :eek:
You say "soon"...!!
I know about the "It is prohibited to ask questions such as "When will this be released?", "Do you need beta testers?", "Any updates?", etc. in this section!" at the top of the page, but I just wanted to ask – how much of the map do you think is done right now? I'd be interested. :)
Also, amazing work. Strathshire looks absolutely stunning. ❤

Will the ai still be the C400 and the E200 mmc or have you changed it to the streetdeck? As you spoke about it a while back
