Bus system suggestions

#1

Post by wetguy »

@Lobby These are some suggestions I have for the new bus system. (This is just my opinion)
  • The buses should look like real buses and function like real buses.
For example, The smallest buses look very unrealistic, like cubes with wheels. They should look similar to this:Image
Should look similar to this ingame:Image
  • the colors of the new buses should be the same as the old ones (with probably some new ones too, for some new lines).
Compare the colors of the old buses with the colors of the new buses. The newer buses have lighter, brighter colors, which looks unfitting and sticks out way too much in the game.
  • The price for a new bus line at a new depot is ridiculously inflated. Is there any reason for this?
Feel free to give your own suggestions for the bus system in this thread.

@Lobby Is each new bus line multiple buses or a single bus? Each line should be multiple buses going a single route, but if it is only a single bus, that is extremely unrealistic.

We don't even have public transportation where I live (except for school of course).

@Lobby The bus depots should not show the green arrows over the buildings, and there should be a "Transit" control menu, like the Airport control menu. However, I don't think this is the top priority. I think the top priority is making the bus system function nicely and realistically.

Eventually we need to think about the future train/public transport map in future, like this

How do we present a unified view of public transport map for the citizens

In the new update, each line can have multiple buses now, so that problem is fixed. Lobby should now continue to fix the extreme "inflation", make the buses look more realistic, and possibly add an option to choose what color you want each bus line to be.

The articulated buses don't look right.

Consideration, yes, but I think other things have higher priority.

I made the graphics for a coach. I think it should replace the bus in between the normal and articulated bus.

I think we should have the option to choose which 2 or 3 colors are painted on the city busses to make them unique to a specific city. I live in Spokane Valley, Washington, and here, the city busses look like this -
SRX_ARTICULATED_BUSES_t1200.jpg
So it would be unrealistic to have, in the same city, a group of busses that are only blue, and then a group of busses that are only green, or only white.
I don't ask for much but enough room to spread my wings and the world finna know my name
