Type of project: (Bus)
Name of project: Rocar De Simon U412-2x0 family
Involved persons: me, Renault_Safra_ER100 (so far)
Estimated construction time: no earlier than fall 2020.
Help needed: yes; with certain scripts (inquiries will be made at the proper sub-forum when necessary)
Details: A break from the German buses presented around here and also the first (partially) romanian bus in OMSI.
This bus was produced by Rocar (for many years the only Romanian bus manufacturer) between 1995 and 2003, based on a De Simon-licensed body. Although the italian flavour is obvious, bearing resemblances with the ubiquitous Inbus U210FT, the romanian-made versions had significant differences given by the german-sourced components (such as the MAN D0826LUH engine, the Voith D851 transmission) and domestic ones (the flip-dot matrix and announcement system). Around 370 buses were made in the 8-year course, the vast majority of them (340) ending up at RATB (Regia Autonomă de Transport București - Bucharest's public transport operator). The last of these were withdrawn in august 2011.
This mod is intended to recreate the most known versions of the bus, such as the early-series models (U412-230, like this one) and the most wide-spread version (U412-260, shown in-game). Other derivatives are planned and will be shown at the right time.
