Improved Truck Physics Mod v 1.0

Date 2016-02-05 16:00



– Mod adds more realistic and hard physics for ATS trucks;
– It is now more difficult to drive a truck, “feel” of the truck is increased;
– Changed driver body movement physics, which is now less static;
– Added five new modes for windshield wipers of Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks to match real life prototypes (four intermittment modes, one long, one short);
– Lots of changes was made in truck behavior:
1. Changed cabin weight to more realistic value;
2. Changed brake efficiency: less overall effectiveness an less effectiveness at low speed (but higher upper margin of “low speed”). Increased max. brakes temperature, increased warm up/cool down rates;
3. Decreased steering wheel angle/speed resistance. Decreased truck turning ability at high speed. Increased truck turning ability at low speed;
4. Increased rotational wheel resistance and air resistance. Also increased inertia – slower acceleration and stopping;
5. Added roll angle to fifth wheel;
6. Increased chassis suspension travel values for vanilla trucks;
7. Increased damping force for truck/trailer suspensions;
8. Added tyres slip possibility. Tyres less rigid now;
9. Increased flywheel resistance – RPM drops faster, when not in gear;
10. Increased intensity of engine braking – truck slow downs faster, when truck is not given throttle;
11. Decreased clutch strength.

Installation instructions:
1.Extract scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ATS;
2.Open in-game mod manager and enable “Improved truck physics” mod;

    Do need to enable ffb? Can it be used with the g27 plugin?

    Seems nice.. but where is the video? I see almost every mods includes a video.
    where is yours?

    Its a good mod, but it doesn’t work good with the traffic pack by JazzyCat?
    There is 1 truck in traffic that drives 5 miles a hour, and the breaking lights are continous on.
    Its maybe my fault that its f*cking up but i thought i report it to you guys!

    Very good, but steering is too sensitive at 40-50 and it’s way too hard at 70. Make the steering slower at 40-50 and a bit faster at 60-70.

    This is the cat’s ass, Man. Makes cruising more of a challenge and fun.
