  1. Technology upgrade: hybrid battery

    Arcanox
    This update adds rudimentary hybrid battery simulation to the bus. Light acceleration and gentle braking will utilize the hybrid battery best, taking some of the load off of the engine, which reduces fuel consumption and noise. Heavy acceleration or long uphill climbs will drain the battery faster and require the engine to work harder. Likewise, heavy braking with the brake pedal (instead of regenerative braking) will waste energy that could otherwise recharge the battery.

  2. Improve drivetrain behavior

    Arcanox
    Added some additional drivetrain features to more accurately mimic real hybrid buses. Now works with both a CVT or a sequential automatic transmission (some of Chicago's hybrid buses don't use a CVT, for example). Also added an electric motor whine sound.
