Improved Truck Physics (ver. 2.1) Upd. 04.12.16 [1.26.x.x]


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
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 front\backward\side to side (but not that much, like in
previous mod version);
11.Increased flywheel resistance – RPM drops faster, when not in
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
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
20.And other changes…

Compatible with 1.26.x of ETS2/ Not tested with previous versions!

    It can support the scania RJL mod ?

    1. Yes, mod support it.

  2. How to install, i’m stuck at step 2

    1. You just have to put the base folder in the mods folder, activate the mod, and you are all set.

    Hi Alyx. I have been trying some othe mods for physics. But overall your mod is the best, so I stick to it 🙂
    But one advice for improvement is to have a look at “Realistic driving and physics for all trucks v2.0” from Robert125. The in-cabin movement in his mod is very good, so have a look and do something similar with your mod. My rating of your mod would the go from Very good to excellent 🙂
