The best bus mod in RoR
Great bus, though the display and other displays won't turn on if the bus is respawned with the ignition off.
I´ve had this mod for over 2 years, and cant get enough of it! its really my main bus as my bus used to be a flat hood bus, or that´s what I call them. haha.
I love this bus, I love how you think about users with older/slower devices. I just wanna say that with something this good there are flaws. One the gear shift screen is on when the bus is not on. That means you have to spam X to get it to align properly.
Great bus, though it may have a Thomas C2 gauge cluster, and the switches seem to be off a bit, it still works great and drives well.
Amazing bus. But, the controls arent on center in the front of the bus so i cant see if my reds or ambers are on.
This is so awesome but even though the buttons are messed. It is perfect.
It drives perfect!
Good Bus, but the interior buttons are broken. If you fix this issue, the bus will be perfect.
