Improved Truck Physics v 2.0

– 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 chassis, cabin, engine, transmission and wheel wear;
16. Less damage from truck to trailer, but overall damage level increased;
17. Updated physics for vanilla and Jazzycat trailers;
18. Added 4 new windshield wipers modes;
19. Added roll resistance and wet grip parameters for tires;
20. Added possibility to loose control over truck due to weather conditions or reckless driving;
21. And other changes…

Compatible with 1.6.x of ATS. Work on older versions is not guaranteed. Please keep original download link!

Installation instructions:
1. Extract all files from downloaded rar-archive to some temp folder;
2. Copy BASE.scs from this temp dir to MOD folder;
3. Based on your requirements, copy required truck/trailer mod files (from “Others” folder) 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);
3. Play!

One thought on “Improved Truck Physics v 2.0

  1. Does this have any conflict with traffic mods? I ask because, I added it to my mod list, and there is no difference from vanilla physics.
    I replaced the previous version, which works GREAT, with this one, and it’s like it doesn’t exist.
