Improved truck physics v1.5
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. Compatible with 1.23.x of ETS2, but it should work on older versions too. Please keep original download link!
1.Corrected to more real life values such parameters as: max. brake temperature, brakes heating/cooling rates and cabin mass;
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 suspension travel values for vanilla trucks and trucks from "supported" 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 front\backward\side 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.

To use this mod with these modded trucks, install it with higher priority!!!
If you have some other not listed above truck mods, try to install them with higher priority, than this physics mod, to avoid possible problems.
1.Extract scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ETS2;
2.Open in-game mod manager and enable this mod;
