OMSI 2.2.032 – Update

The new update 2.2.032 for OMSI 2 is available. The following things changed: Defective spawn of AI vehicles, their landing behaviour and the collision detection has been improved. Entrypoint listings of wrong maps and range errors for OMSI 1 maps, e.g. the map Neuendorf, have been corrected. Further errors on the map and a possible cause for activation issues with add-ons on Steam have been remedied with this patch as well. For more information, check out the OMSI forums. >>Link<<

„Windy City“ welcomes fans of simulation

The long-awaited Add-On “Chicago Downtown” for OMSI 2 is now available and it comes around with lots of new features and improvements! Allow yourself to feel like a bus driver on the lines 124 and 130 and transport your passengers in more than 20 miles of road network safely to their destinations. However, the developers didn’t focus at bus and street details only. There are numerous sights in the third largest city of the U.S., which you can see in the game too. But all of this faithful environment should be treated with concentration, because your reactivity could be in demand otherwise, at any time!

About This Game

Off to the next round! Experience a new omnibus simulator with OMSI 2 and start discovering Spandau while driving the omnibus. OMSI 2 is the successor of the well-known and awarded omnibus simulator "OMSI - The Bus Simulator". OMSI 2 not only offers the routes and buses you already know from OMSI, but adds lots of exciting new features. In OMSI 2 you can drive the first ever articulated bus in the OMSI history, the MAN NG272. Explore the new omnibus line 5 covering a total distance of 12 km from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau. Thanks to the newly added chronology function you´ll not only be able to drive through Spandau in 1986, but also to relive the changes taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994.

Enjoy the charm of the 80s and 90s and find out how the period after the fall of the Berlin Wall was. And this all at wheel of a double-decker or articulated bus.

New features in OMSI 2:

  • The articulated bus MAN NG272 with the exact physical and visual recreation of the joint kinematics as well as corresponding sounds and systems (bending protection).
  • The MAN NL202 as well as reworked and added models of the known types SD200 and SD202 (more years of production, emergency door openers, destination boards, sound variations depending on vehicle number).
  • The Spandau omnibus line 5 from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau covering a total distance of 12 km, several new buildings, a squeezed timetable and a tight 5 minute rhythm with various bus termini and assignments for diverse and long lasting driving pleasure.
  • Replication of original timetables and tour plans for omnibus lines 5 and 92.
  • Chronology function: Relive the change taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994! OMSI 2 now replicates the exciting years following the German reunification and all the innovations and route expansions (line 137 to Falkensee) that came along with it. This function also allows temporary changes to maps or routes caused by construction sites or special buses.
  • Advanced and improved AI traffic (better road- and steering behaviour, railway- and subway traffic)
  • System damage model including different malfunctions which take time to fix
  • OMSI 2 supports a world coordinate system so it is possible to import a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) with the help of a DLL you can even program yourself.
  • Animated real vertical profile on the Spandau map
  • New script functions such as full matrix view, advanced access to system variables.
  • New editor functions: automatic import of aerial imagery, terrain adapts to run of the road, improved spline connection algorithm, rotation of objects around all axes. Intersections can easily be equipped with individual vertical profiles.
  • Saving optimized loading of maps which allows considerably larger maps

Additional features:

  • The classic versions of the MAN double-decker buses SD200 and SD202 are included
  • Realistic and intelligent traffic and detailed landscape
  • Realistic and controllable weather and seasonal effects
  • Realistic day and night effects
  • Many animations and animated objects
  • Fully functional IBIS (integrated on-board information system)
  • Four different views: driver sight, passenger sight, exterior view or free view
  • Script engine to influence the handling characteristics and functions of the bus
  • Easy to use, map-based track editorInsert your own vehicles
  • Compatible with TrackIR 5

OMSI 2 is not without it's faults, but overall is a really in-depth and high quality bus simulator. It is a game crafted with love and attention to detail, unlike certain other simulators.. *cough* Train Simulator.

So what's so good about OMSI?

+ The buses are very high quality, and almost every button in the cab works. Every little function in the bus actually works. Even the driver window slides! The bus sounds are top notch, and this game has one of the best sound engines I've ever heard.
+ The game simulates passengers, and it does it very well. The passengers evaluate your bus driving, and will moan at you if the bus is too cold or too warm or you attempt to short change them. They will want to get off your bus if your driving is not up to scratch!
+ The game fully simulates a 24 hour clock, and various types of weathers such as rain, snow, fog, etc. You will notice less cars and passengers at night, and lots more at rush hours.
+ OMSI has a huge modding scene, which means you can download tons of new maps and buses for free. There's always more to do, and you don't have to fork out £24.99 cause you want some different scenery.
+ Timetables are fully simulated, and AI buses follow them just like you. You can even take over an AI bus if you wish.
+ The included Berlin map clearly had a lot of detail put into it. Compare it on Street view or compare images and the similarities become obvious right away.
+ The game is supported with Official DLC's which are of great quality.
+ The game has full steering wheel support which is really great if you have one.

Okay, so what about the negatives?

- The game WILL micro-freeze and suffer from framerate issues. If you are really really sensitive to issues like this, I would not recommend it. If like me you are willing to look past these issues, you will be fine. It doesn't prevent me from enjoying the game.
- There are various bugs here and there such as the AI hitting you sometimes, passengers noclipping through bus stop shelters, etc.
- The graphics are by no means amazing and they could be better, but I do think they do the job.
- The game can be intimidating at first and the tutorials really are quite useless, don't bother with them.
- The settings can be hard to configure, and aren't as simple Low, Medium and High. This can also be seen as a good thing as you can customise them best to your system.

For many years, I've been searching for a bus simulator that has great graphics and is relistic. Bus Simulator 2008 : First bus simulator I've played. It was good but I didn't feel like I was actually driving a bus.

Then OMSI The Bus Simulator came out and the graphics were not good enough to win me over but it was better than Bus Simulator 2008.

Then OMSI 2 and OMSI 2: Steam Edition came out and when I found out about it, I was determind to get it so i got it as part as christmas. I installed it and tried it for the first time. IT WAS EPIC!

It felt like I was driving a bus, the graphics on the buses are better, OMSI 2 is better than OMSI 1 and Bus Simulator 2008!

I highly recommend you lot play OMSI 2 but if you don't like it, you have no ♥♥♥♥ing soul!

OMSI 2 is love, OMSI 2 is life

The game itself only has 2 maps and a few buses. It is sad that the developer does not implement steam workshop for custom content.
However, you can still expand it by installing custom cotent manually. Tons of custom buses and maps are avaliable online!
Almost every buttons on the buses are usable which makes the game realistic. It seems to be complicated but this game is quite noob-friendly depending on your playing style.

Fun until game lags horribly and then start spamming directX errors with white textures, if you are an hardcore simulation fan get it otherwise avoid.
