Latest updates


Official announcement

Dear Community,

we would like to inform you that we unfortunately have to change the planned content and schedule for the product LOTUS-Simulator: Munich Tram.

As we are still waiting for essential functions and improvements in the LOTUS Rails module (bug fixes in the MapEditor, complete AI functionality, passengers, lighting, performance optimization and loading times in the MapEditor), we hereby inform you that we have to suspend the further development of the LOTUS Munich Add-On for an indefinite period of time.

In the sense of early access, as it is communicated by Oriolus Software GmbH for the LOTUS Simulator, we unfortunately cannot provide a concrete time schedule when we will integrate further functions. We regret this step very much, but unfortunately we have no influence and get no feedback when the mentioned functions are expected.

Since we are dependent on the LOTUS Simulator basic functions for the further development of the add-on, we have no other choice than to suspend further development indefinitely. The function for simple AI was promised by Oriolus until the end of 2019, but there is no information about it until today. At this point in time, we can no longer implement our development to a reasonable extent, so this decision follows, which we will also communicate transparently and openly without delay.

The product LOTUS-Simulator: Munich Tram is - as it is - sold at the current status and we have adapted this information accordingly.



Munich Christmas-Tram Update!

The Christkindl-Tram Type M is now available for download as a Christmas special for our loyal customers!

We have developed this vehicle for you in the last weeks as a self-controllable and drivable version and this is now available as a Christmas present for all owners of our add-on as a free update, because AI vehicles are not possible in LOTUS-Simualtor up to now.

Info about the steering system:
The drive control works like other trams in the LOTUS simulator: Insert directional control forwards and then press the setpoint adjuster forward to accelerate and backwards to brake. The fast brake as well as the rail brake were also installed, as well as lighting and doors opening/closing and door release (holding brake). All these functions use the LOTUS key assignment. The electrical system is permanently activated for simplicity, as well as the pantograph is permanently extended and the main switch is permanently inserted.
The only function that does not use a standard button is the activation/deactivation of Christmas music, which is assigned to the Dead Man/SiFa button.

It is recommended to switch on the vehicle's hints to get information about the control!

  • Direction of travel switchable by directional switch
  • Drive control with 4 speed levels for acceleration and 6 braking levels
  • Doors can be opened and closed
  • Bell can be operated
  • Rail brake is available
  • Lighting can be switched on and off
  • Christmas music can be played at the touch of a button (the Christmas music is copyright-free and is only subject to the Creative Commons BY license)
  • Compressed air system with compressor
  • Sidecar can be coupled manually
  • Multiplayer capable!

    We wish you a lot of fun with the new vehicle and with it nice Christmas holidays!

    Announcement: Extension Route 27 with major update 1.1 and reduced price expires!

    Dear Community,

    During the summer we worked very hard and intensively on our Munich-Add-On and want to bring you up to date today:

    We plan to deliver the next expansion with the major update 1.1 in about 2 weeks on 13.09.2019.
    This brings a lot of new content, functions and loving details for you!
    And first of all: as announced at the start, the reduced price will also expire on this date, so that the add-on will cost € 34,99 as regular RRP. So be quick, you still have two weeks time for the discounted purchase!

    In the past, we have already integrated a number of functions into our Munich add-on that have not been available in LOTUS before, and here too we will continue to add our own driver figure to the game for the first time. There will also be a timetable with fully functional IBIS integration for line 27, as well as another surprise that will be released :)

About This Content

Munich Tram - the first Add-On for the LOTUS-Simulator!
For the first time, we offer you the possibility to control a highly detailed tram model in a realistic simulation on real tracks!

The Simulation At A Glance

With the tram type R2.2b you can take a virtual tour through downtown Munich and explore the routes of the lines 27 and 28! Experience for yourself how it feels to take the tram through the Bavarian capital. The tram has a long tradition in Munich, the first tram line opened in 1876. But our simulation doesn't lead you that far back, because instead of the R2.2b there was still a horse-drawn tram on the way. About 120 years later, since the mid-1990s, the vehicles of the R2.2 series have dominated the Munich cityscape. The type R2.2b was comprehensively modernized from 2011 and is currently in use on Munich's rails in its redesign.

And exactly with this vehicle in the well-known blue design of the MVG you can become tram drivers yourself! Put your skills to the test - get into the driver's seat and you're ready to go!

The Routes

Route 27 runs in the heart of Munich from Sendlinger Tor via Karlsplatz, Karolinienplatz, Kurfürstenplatz and Hohenzollernplatz to Petuelring. The journey time for the 15 stops along the line is about 20 minutes. Past many famous sights, such as the Pinakotheken or the old Börse, time passes in a flash. Line 27 is not only in use during the day, but also at night. Test your driving skills in night traffic as well!

Route 28 also starts at Sendlinger Tor and runs via Karlsplatz and Karolinienplatz to Kurfürstenplatz. There, line 28 branches off from the shared route with line 27 and continues to Scheidplatz. The journey time for the 12 stops along the line is about 16 minutes.
Try it out! Become a tram driver yourself and drive through Munich on our lines.

The Tram Model

Type R2.2b belongs to the R series, MVG's first low-floor tramway. After around 15 years in service, the R2.2 one-way vehicles were extensively modernised and went into operation in 2011 as the R2.2b series. Both inside and outside, the modernised model is available in a new design - blue and white aluminium. New handrails, extended passenger information and swivelling sliding doors characterise the redesign.
