Bus Simulator 21: Update 2.17 Improves Bus Customization and License Plate Editor

Bus Simulator 21 Steam

Developers of Bus Simulator 21 released Update 2.17, which improves the customization of all buses of a particular type at once. Improvements to the license plate editor have also been included.

In the license plate editor, you can now put four letters and numbers in the last position of a British license plate. Furthermore, if you are using a gamepad, the issue where you could get stuck in the UI when editing a Japanese license plate has been resolved.

Another notable feature in Update 2.17 is that you can now customize the route colors. You can now choose your favorite color for the routes that you usually go to, making them shine a lot more than the others.

For gameplay improvements, the steering wheel buttons that you’ve bound to certain actions are now shown in the interaction overview, once you zoom into the cockpit. Also, the district names are now only visible on the map menu screen. This means that you’ll no longer see them on the mini-map, thus presenting you with a decluttered interface.
