Description about « Improved truck physics v. 1.2 [1.2.x] »:

- 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:
Peterbilt 389 by Viper2;
Volvo VNL 670 by Aradeth;
Scania T by Solutech/RJL;
Kenworth T800 by dmitry68, kriechbaum, Stels, oq37 and SCS;

Changelog in version 1.2(01.04.16):
Added modified chassis files and new windshield wipers modes for some mod trucks;
Decreased truck turning ability and steering sensivity;
Reworked cabin suspension values;
Reworked wheel suspension values;
Increased stiffness of tyre material a bit;
Increased a probability of truck skid;
Increased driver movement during driving a bit.

    Nice job, one little thing:

    "Decreased engine compression - truck loses speed more quicker, when no throttle is given"

    This is the case when the engine compression is INcreased. Since it takes more energy to compress the amount of air (engine volume) into the compression volume, which is now reduced if the compression ratio is increased.
