Bus Simulator 21 – Update #5 / 2.13 & Modding available now!

Attention bus drivers! It's finally here! We just released Update #5 / 2.13 as well as the Modding Kit for Bus Simulator 21 on PC. The Modding Kit is available for download on the Epic Game Store. With the help of the Modding Kit, you can start to create your own maps, buses, skins and decals for the PC version of Bus Simulator 21!

And here is the link to our extensive Bus Simulator 21 Modding Kit documentation:

Important note: Because of technical reasons Modding is currently available for PC only. If it may be possible to make mods available on consoles at a later time can’t be promised yet. Please note that in Bus Simulator 21 the modding integration is organized via (instead of the Steam Workshop used by the predecessor) -

If you want to discuss your modding projects or need help from other modders we have prepared two modding forums for you:

  • Mercedes-Benz eCitaro buses are now accelerating at a more realistic rate based on community feedback

Important note:
If you have previously installed custom skins (like the ONL, Friendly Fire, Spielesause, and others), the game might crash once you start it due to the incompatibility with the new mod system. We are working on a solution to provide them through other means. In the meantime, we'd ask you to remove them from the game. Head into the installation folder of the game. It can be found by right-clicking on the game in Steam, clicking on 'Properties', 'Local Files' and then 'Browse'. Then head into the 'BusSimulator21' folder, find 'Mods' folder and delete all the content of it.
