Improved Truck Physics v 1.6


Mod aimed at the players, who want more difficult and life like physics in ETS2. It adds lots of changes to almost parameters, related to truck and driver behavior.
Compatible with 1.23.x of ETS2, but it should work on older versions too. Please keep original download link!

Key features:
1.Corrected to more real life values such parameters as: max. brake temperature, brakes heating/cooling rates and cabin mass;
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 suspension travel values for vanilla trucks and trucks from “supported” 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.

Supported trucks (IMPORTANT!):
Mod support all trucks, but full support (which means custom chassis files) available for these trucks:

To use this mod with these modded trucks, install it with higher priority!!!
If you have some other not listed above truck mods, try to install them with higher priority, than this physics mod, to avoid possible problems.

Installation instructions:
1.Extract scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ETS2;
2.Open in-game mod manager and enable this mod;

-16.04.16 Version 1.6
-reworked steering sensivity. It is more smooth now;
-increased front wheels brakes efficiency;
-small increase of front/rear cabin springing/damping forces;
-small increase of wheel mass;
-increased damping of wheel suspension both for truck and trailer;
-increased sway bar stiffness;
-increased longitudinal/lateral wheel slip factor;
-added full support for:
Volvo FMX540 by Jekich, Jon Ruda;
DAF CF85 by Taina95, Mr.Green, Kirill73ru;

  1. after I tried with so I felt brake is more realstic more you push with your foot the more the brakes harder I struggled with it before when I slows then slows with continued hard but now it’s much better great job

  2. Asphroxia

    Do you think you could make it work with the midlift chassis of the Ohaha daf euro 6? if i use this mod it gets all messed up and im seeing 2 fenders

  3. does it bounces?? i have your older version it so stiff id love to have my cabin bounces like a ball when i hit a bump..

  4. Nelson2230

    Crash on 1.23x with Promods 2.2
    Can you fix it .?
