Website News / New Multimedia Gallery Launched!
« on: October 12, 2017, 09:04:56 PM »
Hey guys, as the title says, I launched a new photo gallery where you can share both real-world and Simulation based Images!

Here's a list of features this Multimedia Gallery has over the old one:

-You can share multiple pictures, not just OMSI but all transportation images
-You can comment, share, and rate pictures
-You don't run the risk of someone stealing your pictures, as they are stamped with a watermark
-You can bulk upload images, up to 20 at a time infact!
-You can hotlink to external sites (unlike Photobucket <.<)
-You're allowed to create new albums for agencies that currently have none, or simply upload to your personal albums
-So much more!


All you need is an account with Virtual Transportation Center! Click the Gallery tab in the menu at the top, or Click here and share: http://vtransitcenter.com/multimedia/index.php

Current Events / Facebook Outage October 11th 2017; Does it Affect You?
« on: October 11, 2017, 12:00:35 PM »
Well as of this moment, facebook is down for a lot of users if not all of them. I think it may have to do with what's going on in CA but no actual sources confirmed/denyed the cause.

Anyway is anyone else affected by this downtime? As in cannot access/login/etc?

Edit: Since no one has said anything by now, it doesn't affect you. Facebook is back online as of 12:54 Eastern.

Have you ever made a fictional transit system? Give us all the news and updates on it here!

I know a lot of people on this board have built and maintained their own ficticious transit agency either in a video game or on paper, and I would like to see what you've all come up with.

Santa Cruz Metro New Flyer Repaint (From ANIME-AND-BUSES)


http://vtransitcenter.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=42

This repaint download is the paint scheme of Santa Cruz Metro that was created in 1998 on their first low floor D40LF's and currently on their now retired 1990's Gillig Phantoms, 1998 D40LF's, 2002/2008 C40LF's, C40LFR's, and their 2013 XN35. The number on this bus is #2203, along with 2204 and 2207 which was sadly the one of the first 2002 New Flyer C40LF's that are now retired.


Edit(9-22-2017)
The pack has been updated. The white paint is now a bit grey, and on the highway 17 express version, it now has some decals.
C40LF also has decal on CNG compartment.


Link to Auction page of #2203
https://1stcapitolauction.proxibid.com/asp/LotDetail.asp?ahid=650&aid=100783&lid=27146284&title=2002-NEW-FYLER-PASS-BUS-W-WC-RAMP-CNG-NON-RUNNER


On google maps you can see #2203 on Route 71 heading to Capitola
(Which was the route I used to ride on)


R.I.P #2203,#2204, and #2207


Guidelines:
-Do not claim this as your own work
-Credit me if you share(the repaint is free,so just share the link of the repaint :P )
-Enjoy the repaint
(To make it more real, use the New Flyer Powertrain mod DD50/Allison and Cummins ISL-G/Allison Specs)

General Discussion / Facebook and YouTube Not for Support
« on: May 14, 2017, 09:41:27 PM »
Previosuly, it was listed in all my add-ons but I occasionally made exceptions depending on how urgent it seemed.


However as of this moment, you WILL be ignored by me if you ask on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter for support on the following add-ons. If you personal message me about these add-ons, I'll also ignore those message, as there is already the support forums with multiple people available to help you. There is no reason why you need to One-on-one with me all the time especially considering thousands of people do it all at the same time.

  • New Flyer Powertrain Mod
  • Cayuga USA v0.6+
  • Grundelphia
  • Liberty Map

Once again if you ask on Facebook, twitter, or YouTube for support on these mods, do NOT expect to get an answer from me. Thanks.

General Support / How to Access OMSI 2 Editor
« on: May 13, 2017, 03:07:41 PM »
A very crucial function in OMSI 2 is so near-impossible to get to without the know how (or previously having OMSI 1 and just knowing how to get to it).


Step one: Open up steam, and right click OMSI 2 in the library to bring up the menu.





Step two: select "properties" and when the secondary window comes up, select the "Local Files" tab. You can kinda guess the next step







Yeah, select browse local files, find "OMSI.exe" in the folder that comes up and create a shortcut of it.



Right-click the label and then under targer, add [space]-editor at the end



You can rename the actual shortcut file and put it wherever after you're done this step, and it will forever work (although there's one more step). When you click on the shortcut, you have to go back into steam sometimes because a warning message comes up to confirm you are the one who tried to launch OMSI in this manner. Just click okay and then OMSI 2 Editor will load. You're done.




KK Bye bye.

General Discussion / How To Paint OMSI Cars in .tga or .dds format
« on: May 13, 2017, 01:47:41 PM »
Since this tutorial applies to almost every type of vehicle, It won't my one of those exclusive to Chicago type things.

What you'll need for this is:
DXTBmp
A decent image editor (of your choice).

So first what you want to do is go into the folder of the vehicle you wish to paint. For the sake of this tutorial, I will use the Chicago police car (since that's the most requested).



Now that you've gotten to the folder you want, go to the texture folder find an actual texture file relevant to the vehicle.





Open the file with DXTBmp, and you'll be greeted with a screen that shows the texture and a few controls, including the alpha map. When you do this, make sure you set the editor to be your image editor.





You haven't edited yet! Now you go to the bottom of the screen, click the downward pointing arrow button and then edit the image in your image editor. Once you're done, save the image and then click the upward pointing arrow in DXTbmp.





Then all you have to do is save the image and you're done. Kk bye bye.

General Discussion / Do You Have the Chicago Addon?
« on: May 02, 2017, 01:22:21 AM »
I noticed that there's quite a few people who don't have it and by association cannot run any of the maps featured on this site.

So my question is... Do you have the Chicago add-on?

And for those that don't, would you be interested in future released maps if they didn't depend on the Chicago Addon.

And for those that do, would you be upset if Chicago wasn't mandatory?
