This magazine would include posts about WIP maps, buses. We will also include reviews about newly released maps/buses. If this is wanted, I would publish the map online every month or two. We may do competitions depending on if we can get prizes ect. It will mainly be advertising UK maps/buses in the hope of higher downloads. We will get devs permission before posting about them in the magazine. Screenshots and articles will mostly fill the magazine. I will look at publishing paper copies in the future. It will all depend on how popular it is. Any devs who allow their content to be shown will get free advertising of their products. If this is wanted, I will need assistance in getting reviews ect together for the magazine.

Definitely interesting - it could act as a round-up of all the news and reviews you get over various youtube channels.

I like the concept but I'm not sure there's enough content going around in UK OMSI alone, so you'd probably have to expand your scope to cover the rest of OMSI development as well. I'm not sure you'll ever get a paper copy out, because we are by nature an electronic community, seeing as our shared interest is a computer simulation.

What could be done is a summary of the developments of major UK WIP projects every month. And why not have a tutorial on something different every month? Could help with further content development.

Something like this maybe 






Can't say I'm a huge fan of that look, it's a little too Sun or OK magazine for me (though for the full effect it would need headlines such as "MARCEL is PREGNANT? Read the full EXCLUSIVE story inside!"). I see where you''re coming from but something more like the model railway magazines might be more appropriate.

I'm happy to help out. When I have some spare time, I can write articles. I count my English as being 'pretty good', so I'm in. PM me @iMarkeh.
