This includes the MAN A20, A21 and A37 buses in diesel, CNG, LPG and Hybrid versions, as well as a diesel Neoplan N4516.

Budapest, H5-ös hév (Sziriusz12)
Sziriusz12 started the development in March 2019, when he constructed Szentendre station, the northern terminus of the line. Since then, Balzska helped him with many things. In summer 2019, an early access version was released, which included the route between Szentendre and Margit híd, budai hídfő (ground level) stations.
From February 2020, the map was updated step-by-step, at first from Szentendre to Pomáz, later to Békásmegyer, and finally on the full length of the line. Some unique objects were made already, but only a few of them were put in the game, so the route might look empty.
A number of reviews mentioned performance issues, so he started a “Performance update” in September, which means that he replaces the 3D trackbed with a more optimized 2D one. Besides that, he also made the missing underground section to Batthyány tér, although it’s not in the final state.
The route of the replacement buses is also planned, and the Volánbusz suburban bus lines 869 and 872 might be added later as well. There’s still a lot to do on the map. The early access version is available via Steam Workshop, and recent updates can be found on the Facebook page of the map or on the LOTUS Forum.
Duewag N8C – KVG Kassel (Tramkatze/Strabuwerk)

MAN Lion’s City pack (Alper)
The author is currently working on the A21/A37 types. The bus got the original MAN dashboard, which is fully animated apart from some functions of the on-board display. The openable windows were put in, the interior lighting is working, the A37 version now has its different engine layout, and some models in the interior and the driver’s cabin were corrected. More informations can be found on the LOTUS Forum.
