Highlights

  • Bus Modding: Modders can read here how to create buses using the new modding tool and players will surely find the first new buses in the workshop soon

  • Bus Upgrades: Upgrades (e.g. premium seats, passenger information system) are now available for buses to improve passenger comfort.

  • WLAN: Mobile data contracts with different data volumes can be booked in order to offer passengers WLAN during the journey

  • Timetable: The driving times in the extended timetable can now be entered manually instead of having to select a fixed interval per timetable

Changelog

Map / Lines / Timetable

  • The driving times in the extended timetable can now be entered manually instead of having to select a fixed interval per timetable
  • Up to 250 lines can now be built
  • Clients of public service lines no longer complain about poor passenger numbers when the line has not yet run or when passenger numbers are high
  • The given timetable interval for public service lines can no longer be lower during rush hour than outside rush hour
  • Fixed grey camera glitch in the map
  • For public service lines, the entire line can now be deleted and rebuilt without losing the order
  • Fixed a bug when calculating the number of buses needed for a line
  • Lines in the line overview are now correctly sorted by name
  • Stops on the map are now displayed more clearly
  • In Brazil, it no longer loads wrong starting points / cities in the map

Balancing

  • Adjustment of the number of passengers so that they should no longer be so extremely high in large cities
  • General improvement of passenger behaviour
  • Optimised number of passengers at airports and schools
  • Fixed bug that line exchanges sometimes did not work
  • Remuneration of tasks optimised
  • Companies with high capital now receive lower subsidies

Please note that the new passenger numbers will first be calculated from the next day in existing savegames. The balancing has changed a lot with this update. We would be happy to receive your feedback on the new passenger numbers in your savegames, so that we can make additional adjustments. Please also let us know how the ticket prices are set, what the current company rating is and how high the current willingness to use public transport is, as all this has an influence on the passenger numbers 🙂
