Improved truck physics v2.0
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 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;
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 behavior;
18.Added custom chasis files for all vanilla and Jazzycat trailers (Trailer and cargo packs) for better behavior of trailers;
17.And other changes...
Compatible with 1.25.x of ETS2/ Not tested with previous versions! Please keep original download link!
Supported trucks (IMPORTANT!):
Mod support all trucks, but full support (which means tweaked chassis files) available for these trucks:
All 13 trucks from vanilla game version;
Scania R2008 by 50Keda;
DAF XF E6/Volvo FH16 `09/Volvo FH16 `12 by Ohaha;
MAN TGX E5/E6/TGA/TGX/TGS by MADster;
MB1639/Scania 143M/Ural 43202/FSC Star 200 by Ekualizer;
MB Actros `14 by DavidZoli;
MB Arocs by WTD;
Volvo FH16 `12/FH16 `09 by Pendragon;
Volvo FH16 `12 by Eugene;

Scania V8 Illegal by Carls1309;
Scania 4 series by Satan19990;
KAMAZ 5460 by Koral;
MAZ 6422 by JAWA;
MAZ 5440 by IL86.
Renault Magnum by Knox_xss also fully supported and don`t require any special tweaking, because it has required values in its chassis files. Other trucks not from the list above can be adapted manually (see section "truck mod adaptation")
1. Extract all files from downloaded rar-archive to some temp folder;
2. Copy BASE.scs to MOD folder;
3. Based on your requirements, copy required truck/tandem/trailer mod files to MOD folder;
4.Open in-game mod manager and enable all copied mods (refer to "correct mod installation" chapter for proper physics mod installation);
"Correct mod installation"
Main mod file (BASE.scs from "Base" folder) can be installed with any priority, but it is always better to install it with top priority, to make sure other mods are not interfere with it.
Mod files for trucks mods, tandems mods and trailers mods (from "Others" folder) must be ALWAYS installed with HIGHER priority, than mods they are suitable/intended for.
