Bus Simulator 16: Update 5 available now!

Dear community,

We are happy to present you today the latest update for Bus Simulator 16. Next to bug fixes and further game improvements the update also offers new features like the support for custom screen resolutions as well as five new missions for ambitious bus drivers. We hope you will enjoy the ride!

Patch notes:

Bug Fixes:

  • On a roundtrip drive, the destination display on the bus is now properly updated once the first half of the drive is done.
  • Fixed deadzone and settings issues for Logitech Driving Force GT (were introduced with Update 4).
  • Made the indicator lights a bit darker.
  • Fixed bad performance on Windows when Force Feedback was enabled but no FFB controller could be found.

New Features
  • Added support for custom screen resolutions.
  • A warning is displayed if the selected screen aspect ratio exceeds 21 : 9.
  • Added five new missions including VO.

Note: There might be clipping issues in the first person mode if the aspect ratio of a custom resolution exceeds 21:9. This issue can be reduced by decreasing the FOV but might not completely disappear.

About This Game

Win the daily battle with the clock—become a bus driver!

Six true-to-life city buses, including two Lion’s City buses licensed by MAN, and a gigantic freely accessible world are waiting for you in Bus Simulator 16. Transport your passengers to their destinations across five authentic city districts safely and on time. Drive a two-door, three-door, or a true-to-life articulated bus through commuter traffic at rush hour, watch out for emergency vehicles, and take detours around construction sites. But watch out, or you will get into trouble for accidents and traffic violations!

You also have to maintain order inside the bus. Calm upset passengers, repair stuck doors, sell tickets correctly, and extend the ramp for wheel chair passengers in a timely manner. You will have to be efficient if you want to stick to your schedule, as it is only by doing this that you will build up your reputation in the city, earn the trust of your passengers, and most importantly, make money! The better your reputation, the larger the contracts you can secure, and the more buses will be available to your company in the shop. Unlock additional districts of the city and carefully plan routes for the employees you will acquire in the included job exchange.

As you grow more successful, you will also acquire more and more advertising banners for your buses, which bring in additional money. If your buses are too dull, you can paint and decorate them with unlockable decals, ensuring that your passengers reach their destinations in the coolest way possible.

You think bus drivers are lonely? Not in Bus Simulator 16! Invite your friends into your game in multiplayer mode and let them take over routes for you. The money they earn can be used to expand your shared company and thus perfect public transportation in your city.

You want to drive even more buses and arrange Sunny Springs to fit your expectations? Then you can just construct the city to suit your own taste. Bus Simulator 16 is mod-friendly, and you can use programs like Blender and Gimp to adjust the visual appearance of the existing buses to your liking, as well as integrate your own custom buses and buildings into the game.
