Improved truck physics 1.7



– 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 for vanilla and mod trucks (four intermittment modes, one long, one short) from 15 item list;
– Lots of changes was made in truck behavior:
1. Changed cabin weight to a 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 autocentering speed of steering wheel. Decreased truck turning ability;
4. Increased rotational wheel resistance and air resistance. Also, increased inertia – slower acceleration and stopping;
5. Increased clutch strength for more realistic clutch-transmission behavior;
6. Decreased retarder effectiveness;
7. Increased chassis suspension travel values for vanilla trucks;
8. Slightly decreased overall damping force for truck/trailer chassis suspension;
9. Transmission inertia decreased;
10. Added tyres slip possibility. Tyres a little less rigid now;
11. Increased flywheel resistance – RPM drops faster, when not in gear;
12. Increased intensity of engine braking – truck slow downs faster, when truck is not given throttle;
13. Decreased engine compression – truck loses speed more quicker, when no throttle is given;
14. Increased transmission resistance – more losses in transmission.
15. Added slightly modified chassis files for many truck mods (see readme for the full list);
16. Added chassis, cabin, engine, transmission and wheel wear;
17. Less damage from truck to trailer, but overall damage level increased;
18. Updated physics for vanilla and Jazzycat trailers;
19 And other changes…

Compatible with 1.4.x of ATS. Please keep original download link!

Installation instructions:
1. Extract all files from downloaded rar-archive to some temp folder;
2. Copy BASE.scs to MOD folder;
3. Based on your requirements, copy required truck/tandem/trailer mod files to MOD folder;
4.Open in-game mod manager and enable all copied mods (refer to “correct mod installation” chapter for proper physics mod installation);

“Correct mod installation”
Main mod file (BASE.scs from “Base” folder) can be installed with any priority, but it is always better to install it with top priority, to make sure other mods are not interfere with it.
Mod files for trucks mods and jazzycat trailers mod (from “Others” folder) must be ALWAYS installed with HIGHER priority, than mods they are suitable/intended for.

All my mods are free to download and will be distributed this way in the future too. However, If you appreciate what i`m doing and want to support my work, you can transfer any amount of money, using PayPal on this email: [email protected]

  1. Too complicated for me, I gave up

    1. Brian Han

      It is especially hard without a steering wheel.

  2. спасибо!

  3. Wim Frencken

    its trash, make it client friendly or f.o

  4. You guys must be total #######. It’s being installed like any other mod is.

  5. i liked version 1.4 a lot can you possibly update it to ats 1.4

  6. I like this mod, but there is conflict between “Improved truck physics 1.7” and “Peterbilt 389 Modified V2.0.8 ATS” (Viper2 Mod).

    I use Pete 389 from Steamworkshop and with your mod installed the windshield wipers don’t work :(

    I’m sure of it, i tested with or whithout mods and different priority and this is the only possibility where it does not work. This is the first time it appears, and only with this truck, with this version.

  7. I liked this mod with 1.4. Made for some realistic driving. It looks like this one is not compatible with 1.5 beta though. I don’t see any change at all, even with all at highest priority. Anyone have similar results?

    1. yeah me too
