Improved truck physics v1.0
Category - Other mods / Other mods ats
Version - v0.9.1.3, v1.0
Credits: - AlexeyP

Description:

- 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 of Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks to match real life prototypes (four intermittment modes, one long, one short);
- Lots of changes was made in truck behavior:
1. Changed cabin weight to 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 steering wheel angle/speed resistance. Decreased truck turning ability at high speed. Increased truck turning ability at low speed;
4. Increased rotational wheel resistance and air resistance. Also increased inertia - slower acceleration and stopping;
5. Added roll angle to fifth wheel;
6. Increased chassis suspension travel values for vanilla trucks;
7. Increased damping force for truck/trailer suspensions;
8. Added tyres slip possibility. Tyres less rigid now;
9. Increased flywheel resistance - RPM drops faster, when not in gear;
10. Increased intensity of engine braking - truck slow downs faster, when truck is not given throttle;
11. Decreased clutch strength.

Installation instructions:
1.Extract scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ATS;
2.Open in-game mod manager and enable "Improved truck physics" mod;
3.Play!

    Fantastic mod. Trucks feel and drive a lot better. Though the trucks still stop far to fast. You can stop almost instantly using the retarder. Although brake sensitivity is good on the jake brake. The pedal brake is also ok. But the retarder is way too sharp. It's like a physics cheat.
