Improved truck physics 2.2

1.Corrected to more real life values such parameters as: max. brake temperature, brakes heating/cooling rates and cabin/wheel masses;
2.More realistic fifth wheel: added fifth wheel roll angle;
3.Changed brake efficiency: less overall effectiveness and less effectiveness at low speed (but higher upper margin of “low speed”). Increased max. brakes temperature, increased warm up/cool down rates;
4.Decreased retarder effectiveness;
5.Increased chassis front and, in some cases, rear suspension travel values for vanilla trucks and trucks from “supported trucks” list;
6.Decreased truck responsitiveness. More feel of a truck mass – less acceleration, harder to brake with and without load, more air and rotational wheel resistance;
7.Increased clutch strength for more realistic clutch-transmission behavior;
8.Decreased tire friction parameters and increased wheel slip factors – brake path now is longer and at some conditions (muddy, wet road etc) you can loose control on truck or experience wheel slip;
9.Reworked cabin and chassis suspension behavior – during various truck maneuvers truck front less static now;
10.Reworked driver behavior – during truck maneuvers, he`s more prone to move frontbackwardside to side (but not that much, like in previous mod version);
11.Increased flywheel resistance – RPM drops faster, when not in gear;
12.Decreased engine compression – truck loses speed more quicker, when no throttle is given;
13.Increased transmission resistance – more losses in transmission;
14.Improved Cabin Accessories DLC physics for toys and curtains;
15.Added wear factor not only for engine, transmission and wheels, but also for cabin and chassis;
16.Changed damage coefficients: less truck to trailer damage, but overall damage-per-hit was increased;
17.Added custom chassis files for trucks and trailer chassis from BDF Tandem Truck Pack mod by FlemmingV and various Tandem truck packs by Capital logistics, for better tandem and tandem truck physics behavior;
18.Added custom chasis files for all vanilla and Jazzycat trailers (Trailer and cargo packs) for better behavior of trailers;
19.Added 3 new windshield wiper modes for all trucks (4 modes for some trucks);
20.And other changes…

Supported trucks (IMPORTANT!):

Renault T by Polatlı Mods Team;
Renault Magnum by Knox_xss;
MB Actros `14 by DavidZoli;
MB Arocs by WTD;
MB Actros MP3 by MrCapital;
Volvo FH16 `12/FH16 `09 by Pendragon;
Volvo FH16 `12 by Eugene;
Scania R/S/T, R/S/T 4-series and SISU by RJL;
Scania P/G by GT-Mike;
Scania 1 series and Iveco Strator by Shoofer group;

Other trucks not from the list above can be adapted manually (see section “truck mod adaptation”)

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);

Tested on ETS2 1.26.6. Do not reupload!

    А видео не надо выкладывать???

  2. Thx for the updated mod AlexeyP :).
    I washoping for some minor adjustments for the in-cabin movement of my beloved Ohaha Volvo FH16 750 (driving it 80% of my driving time). After having tried the 2.2 version my impression is that you exactly did what I was hoping. The movement is now very close to perfect 🙂
    I have been trying several other Physic mods lately, but after one hour or so with the mod I always go back to your mod, it’s simply the best. Have been using your mod since you started to share it with us.

    1. Thanks, Bjørn! I`m glad you like it.))

  3. Bull #### mod… in which bases do you got the vallues for change the physic of te game? are you a truck driver and mechanic? i really doubt… so you have no authority or back ground to make a mod like this one. Almost all physics mod are rubbish because of this very point…
    So if anyone would like to ruin the experience with the game, go ahead and download it.

    1. lol)))

    2. Haha are you saying that the default game’s physics are better? Maybe we’re not not talking about the same game ;P
      Thanks for updating Alexey, one of the best physics mods out there.

      1. Thank you, Joe!

    3. Then this mod should something for you:
      I find AlexeyP’s mod to be the absolutely best Physic mod out there 🙂

  4. Love the mod! Thanks for the update, I’ve been using this all the time and can tell the difference for sure. As Bjørn said “It’s simply the best”! Is there any plans to add compatibility for the SiSL trailer pack, or is it already supported through the base files?

    1. Thanks! No, currently i don`t have any plans about adding SISL trailers to the mod.

  5. Great mod thanks for your hard work

    1. Thank you, John!

  6. Great, finally a good mod after the 1.12 days when we had some. And having a tweaked chassis is a good sign

    1. Thank you, 4004!

  7. leo truck

    This is the best physics mod since there are ETS2 the others are just a sailing ship in the waves

    1. Thank you, Leo!

  8. Thx AlexeyP, I use your mod with compliments. This is the best physics mod i have played. More fun to play the game. thx. again.

    1. Many thanks, Dolby!

  9. I would just like to clarify.

    “Renault Magnum by Knox_xss must be placed with higher priority, than base.scs file of physics mod!”

    OK but must the “Knox_xss_Renault_Magnum_v16.05”
    be placed higher than the truck mod itself like the others so the priority would be as..

    Knox_xss_Renault_Magnum_v16.05 (Physics Mod)
    “Truck Mod Itself” (Truck)
    base.scs (Base Physics)

    With the other trucks I have them as

    base.scs (Base Physics)
    (Physics Mod of whatever truck)
    “Truck Mod Itself” (Truck)

    The exception being your DAF XF 105 which does not have its own file but is always above base.scs

    Also, I have noticed that the RJL Scania R’s handbrake no longer holds the truck on a hill. At least with a heavy load.

    Thanks in advance and I appreciate your efforts on such a mod.

    1. You should always place base.scs with lower priority, truck mod (ohaha, rjl etc) with “middle” priority and files from “others” folder with high priority.
      About handbrake: both tires longitudinal/lateral friction was reduced. So that`s the reason.
      PS Handbrake itself doesn`t have any “strength” value, so it can`t be tweaked.

      1. Hi AlexeyP
        Did I understand you correctly?
        In my Mod stack I have it like this:
        Sound & Map etc
        Improved truck physics- trailers
        Improved truck physics- trucks
        Improved truck physics- base
        lower I have
        Ohaha Volvo FH16 2013
        RJL Scania R modification

        1. I don`t know can i post here links or no. But here is an example of correct mod order:

          1. Thank you, that makes things clearer but just to clear one more thing up, Your DAF mod does not have its own physics file, does it? So your DAF mod goes above the base.scs with no file of its own above it.


          2. “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, tandems mods and trailers mods (from “Others” folder) must be ALWAYS installed with HIGHER priority, than mods they are suitable/intended for.”

            Now what?

  10. Honestly Kesalon, that is what was confusing me.
