The last update for August,i will be going on a 7 day excursion tommorrow and i wont be back till the 3rd i guess.
Enhanced vegetation on entire map,this picture is at the village of Brgud:
To keep you updated,i have started my final grade of high school so there will be less updates,however i will be working on the map whenever i have time.
I have made some more progress today and started a new village on the way to Starigrad,photos will come on Sunday when i do a bit more work on the Weekend.I would also need a modeler as i have nobody now,a modeler would be useful to make some buildings,and also,when releasing this map,i could also continue Zadar-Knin with him (i am willing to pay the modeler at the map release,as it is.)
Since the last update on this page some other villages have been finished-Ervenik and Rovanjska (which you can find on the facebook page "Omsi maps by Teutonic") and most recently Rupe,which i will showcase today.
This is the first part of the village called Nadoveze,it is a residential area built in the early 2000s.
"Three oaks" bus stop and parking,altough somewhat forgotten and abandoned,its still used by the bus driver to park the bus at night.
Finally,the old part of Rupe named Topolje dating from the 16th century,at the end of the 18th century following Napoleon`s conquests in Dalmatia,the Venetians lost a major battle against the French at this place,thus the name Ruppe (meaning "crushed" in Italian,whilst Rupe in Croatians means holes) where Napoleon crushed the Venetians which meant Dalmatia was finally liberated of their govern (the old school seen at the first picture below near the bridge has been built in this time).
After Rupe,the road to Radljevac continues (Radljevac is home to the abandoned military base used by JNA (Yugoslav People`s Army) and SVK (Serbian Krajina Army) till 1995.) and Plavno (located in a small valley surounded by hills,the bus doesnt enter the village itself but turns around before because the roads which are in bad state).
Abandoned military base between Rupe and Radljevac:
"Savka`s Highway",named after Croatian politican Savka Dabčević-Kučar in the early 1970s was a project of connecting the north and south of Croatia in the shortest roadway possible,it was part of the "Croatian Spring" which was a political movement during Yugoslavia which opposed the government.However after the movement failed the highway was abandoned and only some 10km of it had been built.
Beginning of Radljevac village-this part is called Kravlja Draga,there will be more parts of Radljevac,such as Stara Straža and Martića Glava:
Here is a list of what is done since the last update:
Finished the second part of Radljevac-Martići,and continued the way towards Plavno (just a bit though)
After a couple of months i finally continued the seaside route,finished the village of Kula Norinska and roundabouts at Kapela and in Pirovac
Almost finished Pirovac
Built a tunnel
Made signs for roundabouts,crossings and tourist signalization (such as hotels,National parks,etc.) also made some new billboards.
AI list edited-there wont be any more old default vehicles.
And now the photos:
Kapela and Kula Norinska
On the Pirovac roundabout,one road goes to Karlobag (which will be 1 of the terminuses for a route) and north Croatia,while the second one goes to the Island of Murter (another terminus).
Murter is rather well connected with the mainland so there is a number of departures for the island.The island will be fictional (although it does exist in reality) but i will try to make at least some similarities with the towns on it-Tisno,Jezera,Betina and Murter.Hopefully more pics will come in the following week.
Village of Plavno finished (the final route towards the hinterland,i guess) meaning i will be concentrating towards the seaside towns.
Local volunteer firefighters going on an intervention:
Southern part of the Plavno valley:
Which bus would be good to make a turn here?
For the complete experience,i recommend an old intercity bus for this route (for example the Neoplan Cityliner).
