Hello there, I wonder if someone can help with an OMSI2 question... I've looked at the forums and YouTube comments but haven't been able to figure this out so I'm hoping someone here can advise me.

I have the Volvo B7L Wright Eclipse 1.5 working but I can't get the board to work. Comments online say use the 'correct .hof' file but I'm afraid I'm stumped. My question is which hof file do I need and where should I put it? Sorry if this is a silly question.

(I have what I think are the correct hof files - e.g. Cotterrell, The South London Project ones) but nothing comes up on the board).

Thanks a lot.

You use the .hof file relate to that map. If you were playing Cotterell then you would use the Cotterell .hof file. .hof files are placed in the main bus folder.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I have a .hof file in the main bus folder - but it still doesn't work so I'm stumped. Any chance you could post a screenshot of how the folder should look - or maybe provide any more detail? I was sure I had all the right files in all the right places but still no display!:(

As long as the .hof file is in the bus folder your fine :)

Like this, then in game when you go to spawn a bus, you choose the depot... so Cotterell and spawn the bus :)

erm.... the C400R .bus files aren't supposed to be there :tearsofjoy:

What map are you trying to use the bus on?

Thanks for the replies, very helpful. I'm just posting for my son (he's 10) so sorry for being a bit simple. He's a lot better than me at this and normally never has any problems, but this has us both confused. We're trying to use it on the South London Project - I think I copied the .bus files in that Vehicles folder by mistake.

No worries, any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

If I'm not mistaken, I thought TSLP was an RHD map... anyway, the B7l should work on it but the doors will be on the wrong side of the road. You'll need a .Hof file called 'The South London Project. Hof' in the B7l eclipse 1.5 folder, then when you are spawning the bus in the menu, at the bottom is a drop-down list called 'depot'. Choose The South London Project and spawn the bus at one of the entry points.

Hope this makes sense to you! :)

Edit: I was thinking of the London & South map (RHD) not TSLP (LHD)
