Improved Truck Physics Mod v 1.5


– 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:

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 1.3.x of ATS.

Changelog for ver.1.5:
-fixed some bugs in chassis files;
-added improved physics for vanilla and Jazzycat trailers.

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;
Important! If you will use this mod with supported truck mods (look at added trucks list), use it with higher priority! If you will use this mod with non-supported truck mod, use it with higher priority, than this physics mod!

All my mods are free to download and will be distributed this way in the future too. Hovewer, 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]
All donations are voluntarily! Every donation counts! Thank you!

  1. thk a lot great mod +1000 kudos for you Sir

  2. for the next version could you include something that makes the steering wheel rotation more like a truck and not like a car that would be more imersive than 2.5 turns when a trucks steering wheel really turns 4.5 times or 5

  3. File not found… =(

  4. hi dude! i’ve using your physics mod since the beginning and i love it, but using th2 1.5 with c2c 1.8 and mexuscan 1.10.1 the rig doesn’t run over 30 mph in snowy roads…

  5. Video ???????????

  6. File not found? Is there a newer version out?
