The Future of Fernbus Coach Simulator

Dear Community,

our biggest project yet, Fernbus Coach Simulator, was released almost a year ago and we're continuously getting asked: What's next?! Are we going to continue supporting the game? Are there going to be more updates? New content? DLCs? Well, let's talk about it!

Of course there are still going to be a bunch of updates with new features, fixes, and all that is needed to ensure a great gaming experience. But there is much more that's coming up! Here's an overview... Ready? Let's rock!

--



The initial release of the Modding Tools for Fernbus Coach Simulator is only a few days away! These tools will enable you to edit the existing map and adding contents to it. You can even start creating your very own map, which will be as easy as you could even imagine: For whole Europe, the actual areas will already be included inside the Modding Tools, including the right scale, height data, and coordinates, as an orientation guide. You can simply start placing your streets and objects just like that! Stay tuned for the most easy and powerful way to edit in Fernbus Coach Simulator - Even without any programming or 3D knowledge! Video tutorials will help you create your very own first mod. Starting at initial release, we will publish videos that explain all the basics, and new episodes will follow that will explain the more detailed stuff. We just can't wait to see your first Mods!

Map DLCs - Austria, Switzerland and France

As our Modding Tools are just before release, we already want to announce that we're working on official Map DLCs: Austria and Switzerland (together), and France will be released as DLCs for Fernbus Coach Simulator, enabling you to ride your bus internationally! Time to learn new German accents. And French.

Usedom - Free DLC with exclusive new content!

It's island time! Yes, Germany has islands. Usedom is coming to Fernbus Coach Simulator as a free DLC! But that's not all: This Feature Package will include many new contents for the game, including new props for the Modding Tools, brand new vegetation that will bring a great new graphical experience into the game, and working railroad crossings that might eventually cause you to wait a minute or two. We will soon announce the official release date of this DLC!



--

New Buses

Who said that there wouldn't be more coming up after the Neoplan Skyliner? Well, we have a little more coming up. There will be at least two bus packages: One VDL package with 6 bus variants and another package with 5 bus variants of the ComfortClass. More details to follow...



--

Multimedia DLC - Fernbus Coach Simulator Entertainment Package

Now this is really one of the wishes we've heard the most! The Fernbus Coach Simulator Entertainment Package will include a full featured Radio without commercials, over 70 licensed music titles, a MC with original jingles, an interactive radio traffic service with weather forecasts and new traffic disturbances!

--

Bundesliga DLC

Who said that your only job would be to drive passengers through Germany? Get ready to start your next challenge! The new season of the German Soccer League (Bundesliga) is starting and YOU are the bus driver of your favorite team. Bring the players to their games, make sure to drive responsibly, keep your bus clean and drive through the washer, keep the drinks fridge filled up and make sure to have a fair Wi-Fi on board. Make sure to head to the repair shop before it's too late, and compare prices of petrol stations, hotels, and more to find the best offer. Spending too much money won't make your boss happy, but being too stingy won't make your players happy. This is a new chapter - And you decide where it goes! We will soon detail the current development of this DLC here in our forums.

--

Of course, regular updates will also be released here and then, making sure to keep the game stable and adding constant improvements to functions and graphics, as well as interactions in the Germany map. We will also completely revise the AI system - we know it's you're biggest wish - and will take time to make Force Feedback better.

We hope you like our plans for 2017 and 2018 regarding Fernbus Coach Simulator. Tell us what you think!

Best regards,
Chris

About This Game

The Fernbus Coach Simulator is the first simulation of the very popular intercity buses. Thanks to the cooperation with FlixBus the Fernbus Coach simulator shows the daily life of a coach driver on the German Autobahn, highways and in more than 40 cities in great detail.

With a large and modern MAN Lion’s Coach Bus you experience the daily life of a long distance coach driver. Navigate through a complex Autobahn and road network to bus stations in the more than 40 implemented cities and stay in constant communication with the headquarters.

Be careful with the other car traffic during your trips on partially full German highways and control your bus safely by day and night during all seasons.
About 20.000 km of the German route network of FlixBus and over 40 cities were simulated. Time passes at a scale of 1:10, so that the individual tours last not too long.

Like in reality at the bus stations passengers already holding a valid ticket can get on right away while the other passengers have to buy a ticket from you.

Both MAN busses are equipped with original cockpits including all functions. The interior and exterior of the bus is modeled to the last detail. True to original passenger announcements provide a realistic atmosphere. Construction sites, traffic jams and accidents will challenge you as a bus driver to keep up with the schedule. The busses were tested and optimized by bus drivers and driving instructors.
