Insurance contract terminated

OMSI 2

We have decided to terminate our insurance contract in Bus Company Simulator due to it being extremely costly (I remember wrongly how much it costs for the company) and damages on the buses have been mostly on the cheaper side and there are a lot less of them so it doesn't justify keeping especially on current times when our balance is decreasing.

It will terminate on 05.09.2019 15:18 company time

How much did it actually cost for us?

As you can see from the image in thumbnail it costed us 43€ per day per bus. So we have 78 buses and on avarage there are 30 days in a month. So it costed us: ...

    TruckersMP VTC opened

    American Truck Simulator Euro Truck Simulator 2

    Today, TruckersMP team announced their own built in VTC system. (More info about that can be read here: https://truckersmp.com/blog/168).

    Of course we opened our own also, which you can find here: https://truckersmp.com/vtc/150

    At least for now we will keep the VTlog version open also since I have a feeling TruckersMP version does not support singleplayer, but we'll see.

    MAN Lion's City Pack update

    OMSI 2

    I'm glad to announce that our Lion's City Pack has been updated. It is now merged with Sobol's update 1.21. Due to this, there have been some changes with the buses in our depot:

  • No 1237 MAN Lion's City A21 Euro 6 has been updated. Old permissions stayed.
  • No 1238 MAN Lion's City A21 Euro 6 CNG has been replaced with MAN Lion's City A37 Hybrid, thus new permissions will need to be aquired.
  • No 1822 MAN Lion's City A23 Euro 6 articulated bus has been replaced with MAN Lion's City A23 EEV, because the new update broke the version we used before. New permissions will need to be aquired.
  • A new smal...

    Several buses removed and crisis is upon us

    OMSI 2

    As I posted in May's Monthly report I planned to remove several of the company buses depeding on how the company does for the next month.

    The month has now ended and the news aren't good. As you can see from the image below...

    ...things aren't looking good. Our company's balance is rapidly falling (fast) and this has resulted in me removing in total of 18 buses. List of all removed buses can be found on our fleet page, if you click on the Graveyard tab.

    Should our company balance drop even more, we will need to remove even more (and this time we problably need to attack the maps also or insur...
