Buy OMSI 2 Add-on City Bus O305

 

About This Content

Relive the history of the German omnibuses on your computer at home and explore the technology of the Citybus O305. Do not only drive a bus with automatic transmission, but be the first in an OMSI add-on to control a bus with manual transmission in the busy city traffic. Use the citybus on line 92 in Spandau or explore the fictional Neuendorf route including its five bus lines. This is where you can prove that you are not limited to suburban traffic but you are also capable of handling city traffic.

MB E2H84 – This is the Berlin version of the O305 from 1984. The model for this vehicle was purchased in 1984 in a series of 40 buses for the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe.

MB E2H85 – This series was introduced in 1985 which was the last year of acquisition for the first generation of standard buses. The series featuring eight vehicles was part of a fleet trial with new forms of propulsion. The buses are for example driven by methanol. Following the end of the trial in 1989, the vehicles were re-equipped with diesel engines. The models of these vehicles were retired until 2003.

Standardbus 1977 – This is a citybus that does not have a real-world counterpart but features ivory livery and red leatherette seats and thus represents the 1970s and 1980s. A bus like this could be seen in the traffic of lots of smaller and larger towns.

Neuendorf – Neuendorf is a medium sized fictional town in the middle of Germany where you can test the new “Citybus 305” for the first time. In Neuendorf you can either drive around the city centre or rather choose the more peaceful suburban traffic. Take the working people to their job at the Böttcherwerk early in the morning using the short line for own-account transport or take the colleagues home after the shift.

Having own this add-on for OMSI 2. It is a very nice pack and the add-on includes a fictional route known as Neuendorf that makes use of the two versions of the buses that are supplied. One has fully automatic transmission whilst the other bus has manual transmission that is also quite fun to drive if you like the challenge of the manual gears. On my 4GB ram PC with the GTX950 2GB graphics card. The add-on runs just fine as I only have a mid-range gaming PC.

In all honesty, the reason why I bought this add-on is because I do like the Mercedes-Benz O.305 and the sounds of the buses in this pack seem to be decent as well. Nice buses to thrash if you like speed as I tend to drive fast when I play this game anyway :). I hope this review should help those that are undecided on this add-on but if not, I really couldn't care less ;).

OMSI 2 will tell you that there are no spawn points in the Neuendorf map that comes with this DLC. To make this add-on work with OMSI 2, you need to convert the map into OMSI 2 version. Apparently they shipped the OMSI 1 version in Steam without converting it.

1) Activate your editor by creating a shortcut of OMSI.exe. In the shortcut, change the destination to ".....SteamApps\common\OMSI 2\Omsi.exe" "-editor"

2) Run the editor using the shortcut.

3) Open the map in the editor "Neuendorf"

4) Save the map. It will covert to OMSI 2

5) Exit the editor an play.

It took me a while to finally decide to download this add-on - but I'm glad I did. A top-quality set of buses with excellent sounds, and a nice map to boot. I have had no problems with Neuendorf in OMSI2, as some people have reported.

If that doesn't seem enough for the money, it's worthy of note that buying this bus opens up access to the high quality, community made Mercedes O307 and MAN ÜL-series, which, while freely available, require this bus to be installed in order to work - so in effect you're buying twelve top-quality buses and a map.

Money well spent.

After I converted it to OMSI 2, this map is my favorite map and also I like the fully textured MB o305 E2H-84 and 85 that are seen on lines like the 56 on the Berlin map with the base game. 10/10

Long story short, definitely worth the money. Just buy it. It's one of the most renown buses in OMSI history! And the map is perfect for when you just want to drive and don't know which map to drive. That and Project Stettin. This may happen to cross your path in thee future if you don't! Trust me! *hinthint*

After restoring files via Steam I've managed to run this bus and must say it is very nice and fully worth its price. The pity is developers haven't made articulated version of this bus, MB O 305 G - I hoped it would come in this addon

The City Bus O305 is, in my opinion an must-have add-on for OMSI.
Not only because is an great bus in my opinion, with an great map to train the use of the O305 buses (Neuendorf: an small, but lightweight map even with the O305 as AI).
But also opened the doors to use high quality buses (the O307, the O407, the MAN ÜL, the GSÜH 240M12 and the Gemeinschaftsbus), which despite these ones being freeware, they require this City Bus O305 add-on to being installed. And for me, it's the strongest point of having this City Bus O305 add-on.

Reasonalbly priced which included an awesome MT Bus

With this addon you may also enjoy other high quality free add-on MT buses made by the community.

It's a must-have add-on for your OMSI.

Its a great add-on, althought I cannot pick which bus I want to drive. I have to pick one thats driving around at whatever point of entry I decide to pick.

Other than that, its a great game and 4 different routes to choose from. Great graphics, great town and great scenery. Its just a great little game.
