About

Off to the next round! Experience a new omnibus simulator with OMSI 2 and start discovering Spandau while driving the omnibus. OMSI 2 is the successor of the well-known and awarded omnibus simulator "OMSI - The Bus Simulator". OMSI 2 not only offers the routes and buses you already know from OMSI, but adds lots of exciting new features. In OMSI 2 you can drive the first ever articulated bus in the OMSI history, the MAN NG272. Explore the new omnibus line 5 covering a total distance of 12 km from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau. Thanks to the newly added chronology function you´ll not only be able to drive through Spandau in 1986, but also to relive the changes taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994.

Enjoy the charm of the 80s and 90s and find out how the period after the fall of the Berlin Wall was. And this all at wheel of a double-decker or articulated bus.



  • The articulated bus MAN NG272 with the exact physical and visual recreation of the joint kinematics as well as corresponding sounds and systems (bending protection).
  • The MAN NL202 as well as reworked and added models of the known types SD200 and SD202 (more years of production, emergency door openers, destination boards, sound variations depending on vehicle number).
  • The Spandau omnibus line 5 from the subway station Ruhleben to the psychiatric clinic Spandau covering a total distance of 12 km, several new buildings, a squeezed timetable and a tight 5 minute rhythm with various bus termini and assignments for diverse and long lasting driving pleasure.
  • Replication of original timetables and tour plans for omnibus lines 5 and 92.
  • Chronology function: Relive the change taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994! OMSI 2 now replicates the exciting years following the German reunification and all the innovations and route expansions (line 137 to Falkensee) that came along with it. This function also allows temporary changes to maps or routes caused by construction sites or special buses.
  • Advanced and improved AI traffic (better road- and steering behaviour, railway- and subway traffic)
  • System damage model including different malfunctions which take time to fix
  • OMSI 2 supports a world coordinate system so it is possible to import a DEM (Digital Elevation Model) with the help of a DLL you can even program yourself.
  • Animated real vertical profile on the Spandau map
  • New script functions such as full matrix view, advanced access to system variables.
  • New editor functions: automatic import of aerial imagery, terrain adapts to run of the road, improved spline connection algorithm, rotation of objects around all axes. Intersections can easily be equipped with individual vertical profiles.
  • Saving optimized loading of maps which allows considerably larger maps

  • The classic versions of the MAN double-decker buses SD200 and SD202 are included
  • Realistic and intelligent traffic and detailed landscape
  • Realistic and controllable weather and seasonal effects
  • Realistic day and night effects
  • Many animations and animated objects
  • Fully functional IBIS (integrated on-board information system)
  • Four different views: driver sight, passenger sight, exterior view or free view
  • Script engine to influence the handling characteristics and functions of the bus
  • Easy to use, map-based track editorInsert your own vehicles
  • Compatible with TrackIR 5

OMSI 2 reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
OMSI 2-the best Bus Simulator you can get right now. OMSI 2 is the Game I play every Day at the moment. However, I don't drive a Bus every Day, but I'm in the Editor. But more on that later. OMSI offers 2 Lines through Berlin from Home, in addition to Bus traffic there are various Trains (metro, Regional Railway, S-Bahn) on the way. I think the 2 Lines are Fun on their own, but they don't offer Long-term Motivation. In order to love the Game for as long as possible, you can download various Mods in the official Forum. There are countless beautifully designed Maps with city and Overland Traffic, and there are also a lot of realistically converted buses. In the Forum, all Maps, Vehicles and Objects are free for your own Maps, but there are also different payment Add-ons that reproduce very realistically different Places. OMSI 2 is also the most realistic Bus Simulator at the Moment. The Driving Physics are right, the pedestrian and Vehicle Traffic are well done. However, the Sounds of standard AI Cars are not always 100% coherent, so the Sound of a Trabant, for example, does not change from country road to Traffic Lights (Connected to stops) to City traffic, but this is also the case for other Vehicles. In Addition, OMSI is not well programmed, so despite subpar graphics (compared to current Games today; not necessarily Simulations), it attracts a lot of Power. Compared to OMSI 1, however, the Successor is not worth his Money. A few Changes have been made to the Editor's Inferface, a few Changes have been made to the program, a new Bus + Feature of the animated joint and a new Line has been implemented, which I Don't think justifies the Price. I don't think OMSI 2 was necessary for this either, and I think a Comprehensive Update or Add-on with these Features would have done it. But continue with the positive Things: OMSI 2 has a large Community with a forum and lots of extra Cards and Buses, which keeps the Player happy for a very Long time. Unfortunately, the Climate within the Community is not the Best, so there are discussions that in my Eyes wouldn't have to be. In the Forum, however, you don't get much of it, where you are always helped. As written at the beginning, OMSI has its own Editor, which I would like to highlight again. There has always been a present At the Editor when Games have offered one. I've Always been excited that you're so limited in the Editor that you could only ever use predetermined Objects and Roads, With OMSI it's different. You can use a Blender to build your own Objects and use them on Maps. You can create your own Streets (one from the Forum has written a Progrmam!). So each map can get its own Flair and you are no longer limited. In this way, it is also possible to recreate very real Maps. I spend far more Time in the Editor than on the Road because I think OMSI has the best Editor I've been allowed to use until now. Tip to anyone who (want to) build their own Map: Ride first on the best Maps available for OMSI. I can mention Tettau, Ahlheim and Winsenburg. There are, of course, many other Cards that are good, but not every card that is large Is a Role model. So there is a very large Map that claims to be the best and realistic OMSI Map, but it is just big, Details and 100%ty Reality makes them miss. Maximum Of the Semi-Real titles would be appropriate here. Especially the Builders of this Map and the Followers of the Map (are many) are Troublemakers in the Community (Fanboys should know everyone). But now continue in the Text. Overall, the Best thing on offer is the "Simulations" Section at The Moment. Only the Graphics and the Fact that the Game is unfavorably programmed are blemishes in the otherwise excellent Image of this Simulator.
