UPDATE: I will now be working on Minestone back Publically

Also the initial release of the map will only contain 2 Lines Connect 4/5 which are run by Swiftling under their Swiftling Connect Brand

You will also get the Swiftling Standard and Swiftling Connect Liveries for the C400R, ALX400, ALX400R, MAN A21 UK, Streetdeck, Streetdeck HEV, B5LH & B5TL

*Once the Streetlite is released that will also receive both Repaints.

However I might decided to add more lines for intial release and advise you here, Fellowsfilm or on my Discord https://discord.gg/K9zR6tW

Also Minestone is now part of 'The British OMSI Studios'

Hi, I'm LeylandNationalStagecoach from FellowsFilm.
Map and reskins look really amazing!
Just have one question, will we be doing liveries for all new buses that come out (MS Marshall Dart, Masterbus G2, V3D's E200 MMC, Solo and Spectra, etc.), or just the Masterlite?
Thanks in advance! :)

@OptareSpectraStagecoach

Yes Once a new bus is released it will most likely receive the liveries that @Ecronbus is currently making


So far liveries will be on
Every variant of bus in the G3 Pack
ALX400R/ALX400
London Citybus 400
MAN A21 UK
Every variant of the bus on the Streetlite
and so on....

Every bus I can afford, will 100% receive a Swiftling livery.
For simplicity, most bus will only have generic & a random branding, but I think more can be done over time ;)

March 2020 Update

Well I have been hard working on Minestone since my last post back in January 2020.

So here's what changed
> I have completely restarted the map as I have decided to go in a different direction and approach with Minestone
> Currently creating the Bus Station, Surrounding Areas and the High Street
> Also their is a New Swiftling Livery. This will be applied to the London Citybus 400R, ALX400 and ALX400R & E200MMC, and for people with the G3 Pack & Streetlite pack
don't worry they will have the livery as well.
*NOTE: When the E400MMC Pack is released I will put the livery on them buses as well.

1st lot of screenshots will show the new repaint and special town lines brandings applied to the E200MMC and for Streetlite users.
2nd lot of screenshots will show of the bus station and WIP areas of Minestone

> Temple Street has been edited so that the bus stops facing southbound have their own bus lane and the Temple Street Junction/Bus Station Entrance has been edited so 1) Bus are able to fit when entering the bus station without mounting curbs, hitting barriers, poles, traffic lights etc. 2) Dual Lanes have been added so that their is a lane for turning left and a lane for going straight and turning right
> Crossings and Traffic Lights on all junctions have been moved slightly back so buses can turn without mounting curbs, hitting barriers, poles, traffic lights and going into the other lane.
> Masterswitch Gen 3 Pack now has the Swiftling Standard Livery [This includes the Streetdeck, Streetdeck LWB, B5TL, B5TL LWB, B5LH, B5LH LWB and the Streetdeck HEV].

May 2020 Update 1

Here is the Minestone Update for May 2020

As said above Progress is slow at this current time due to a few health issues and the current health situation, however here is a few things I have done/edited/updated/improved since the last Update around March/April.

Change Log as of 07/05/2020 at 22:06
