    I hear about ROR and see stuff related to it some times. It seems very related to BeamNG.drive, as it functions similarly, and it has vehicles made by Gabester, which we all know he doesn't like his ROR creations.

    My biggest question about ROR is why did it vanish into obscurity?

    It got replaced by BeamNG and it hasn't completely vanished, there's still a small circle jerk of "busfags" and some of the old guys that still cling to it.

    Well, I didn't mean that it completely vanished. It just seems to me that it's not as well known anymore.

    To be honest RoR wasn't that well known to start with, at least from what I remember. The main people who kept RoR alive Tdev and Gabe moved on to make Beam and with that eventually the master server got shut down along with the official forum. I think it's still getting updated by some of the old guys, only_a_ptr and a few others I think. And a few people are still hosting servers for it.

    I originally thought there wasn't any active sites, until I found one today. Technically, the only thing about it that interests me, is some of the cars that was made for it, and its overall relation with BeamNG.drive.

    I'd be lying if I said I don't play RoR anymore, I still like to load it up from time to time, start one of my old servers in LAN mode and play around for a while for nostalgia's sake. I still remember all the cars Gabe made for it, The 49 Ford, Chevy S10, Honda Accord, Burnside, Gavril MZ2, MV4, G2, Omega, Bandit, Zeta and the unfinished GV3/ 5, which got cancelled when Gabe and Tdev decided to start work on Beam IIRC.

    Yeah, the Omega is one of my favorite vehicle ideas from ROR. I feel like BeamNG could benefit from having a truck similar to it.

    I don't know why, but since I feel like the Barstow is in some ways a remade version of the Bandit, I think I have a cool idea for how the Omega could be remade as a variation of the conceptual 2014 Gavril Roamer.

    If I was going to bring back the Omega, I would redesign it to have a tonneau cover like the ones that were on the Chevrolet Avalanche and the Cadillac Escalade EXT.

    Pretty much, I would turn it into a truck like these, while also making the Omega a configuration available for the 2014 Roamer. I think another reason something like this could work, is the production of the Escalade EXT and the Avalanche officially came to an end in 2013, so it wouldn't be that too far off.

    Think about it, 2014 Gavril Roamer Omega Edition. However, I would choose a different name for the Omega part. I'd either pick another word from the Greek Alphabet like Epsilon or Delta, or I'd call it something related to mountains, hills, etc.
