Version - v1.6.x

Description:

Improved truck physics v1.9 for Ats 1.5.x+ game versions

 

Features:

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

Truck mod adaptation to this physics mod
1. Open truck mod archive, which you want to adapt to physics mod. Use winrar or 7zip for this, for example;
2. Go to def/vehicle/truck/truck_name*/chassis/
3. You will find there some sii files, open all of them with windows notepad or some external editor like notepad++, akelpad etc;
4. Find this string: residual_travel[]: 0.12 # 1st axle (important: value may be different, for example not 0.12 but 0.15 or so);
5. Change this 0.12 value to something in region of 0.45-0.50;
6. Save changes to all changed files, confirm file replacement, when it will be requested by archiver tool;
7. Adaptation is ready. Play!
*truck name may be different and depends on truck.
