Improved Truck Physics v 1.9


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.

Key features:
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;
17.And other changes…

Compatible with 1.24.x of ETS2/ Not tested with previous versions! 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);

    Video Please?????

    Is it possible have the torque and acceleration of your mod while maintaining the original scs physical?
    SCS trucks are unrealistic, they run fast as an RS3…

      they not..its very realistic more 90kmh curves..

    It´s the first time a mod seems to be more realistic than the original game setup, excellent work

    Hi, this version is crashing the game (v 1.25) when trying to pick up a Quick Job. At the selection window the trucks are not displayed and the game crash, if I deactivate this mod everything works fine.

    i really hope there is a fix for this since I’m so used to play with this mod active that without it the game feels like some arcade simulator.
