Detroit-Windsor

The roots of this present map were first planted in late 2018 when I pulled my old and infamously destructive Detroit map from the internet and began contemplating remaking the map from scratch. In 2019, work on this map began, and after many weeks and months of hard work, the all-new, improved and more realistic Detroit-Windsor map is now available. The main intent of this map is to make it as large as OMSI will handle it, as an experiment.

You will already notice that everything is much more polished compared to my old Detroit map. Roads are much more realistic and detailed, and more realistic buildings are featured too.

The following routes are currently featured in the latest release:

  • DDOT 19 (Outer Drive-Rosa Parks Transit Center)
  • SMART 125 (Detroit Metro Airport [McNamara/North Terminals]-River Rouge-Downtown Detroit)
  • SMART 160 (Southland Center-Wyandotte-Trenton)
  • Transit Windsor Tunnel Bus (Windsor-Detroit)

Important Note: When spawning a new bus, each agency uses different HOF files. Use the following HOF files:

  • route starts with "DDOT" followed by route number: use the HOF file "Detroit - Nov 19.hof"
  • route starts with "SMART" followed by route number: use the HOF file "Detroit SMART - Jan 20.hof"
  • route starts with "Windsor" followed by route number: use the HOF file "Windsor - Oct 19.hof"
