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: ...

    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...

    Minimum rank to join dropped significantly

    OMSI 2

    At the time of writing this post, minimum rank to join the company is now as low as 4 (compared to usual 8-10) as we did our half-yearly cleanup.

    For future references, while our company does not have a required minium rank to join, we do clean up members who haven't driven more than half of last year twice a year (usually once at the end of it and once in summer) to lower the employee count, thus lowering minimum required rank to join (exceptions are members who have notified us of their absence).

    All members who have been kicked, if you are back once again, feel free to return.

    BCS Poll: Do you want a feature that penalties players who don't report damages?

    OMSI 2

    Pedepe team has started a poll on PeDePe forums, should they add a feature that:

    If a bus has been damaged by a user and has not reported the defect, a higher assumption of the repair costs (in%) would be due than if the user reported the defect. (eg 20 when reporting the repair value and 80% when not reporting the repair value). Thus, other users would be spared potential annoyance when they want to start their tour with a half-broken bus.

    You're welcome if you like the feature.

    It is all about the message on the premises. Not while driving in the info bar.

    Monthly report (May 2019)

    OMSI 2

    We used to do monthly company reports in video forms, sadly I haven't had time for those. So I've decided to keep you folks posted on our homepages in news posts.

    So how is the company doing currently?

    Here are the current stats of the company:

    As you can see, our company balance has dropped considerably since the end of last year and beginning of the year. Considering that summer usually isn't the most active time for company I'm looking into cutting some costs for the company.

    Good news is that all maps in the company except Hamburg Hafencity are either profitable or just barely hav...
