This article is about the latest version of Physics Mods V2.3 for the Auto/Seq Drivers Mod in Euro Truck Simulator 2.
Hello everyone, this physics mod aims to improve the transmission feel and suspension in the game.
Update: In version 2.3, a new feature has been added where the cabin of the car shakes. There are also other changes specific to different trucks.
- Currently, the mod works with two trucks: the 389 and W900 by SCS.
#For Manual-H transmission:
- The clutch friction for the Manual H shifter has been decreased.
- The RPM now drops slower, requiring more time for shifting.
- The FlyWheel inertia has also been decreased, making it easier to start moving the truck.
- Using the clutch on a big twin disk clutch truck is now harder due to decreased clutch effectiveness.
#For Automatic Transmission:
- The Sequential and Automatics mode is still a work in progress.
- The values for the transmission are not stock, so some changes may be noticeable.
- The goal is to make the transmission changes smoother and faster.
- Now, the trailer and truck can roll and pitch independently.
- In the stock physics, the truck and trailer roll and pitch at the same time, giving the illusion of a single solid vehicle.
- The truck now rolls up to 7 degrees and pitches up to 10 degrees.
- The suspension has been slightly softened, adding a realistic rebounce effect when going over bumps.
- As a result, the cabin can now pitch or roll in the frame, providing a more immersive experience. This effect is more pronounced in stock SCS trucks compared to other trucks.
Please note that other mods may deactivate this feature, so the cabin shaking will only occur if those mods are activated.
- The mass of the truck and wheels has been adjusted, resulting in noticeable differences in weight.
- Tire slip has been introduced, allowing the truck to understeer or oversteer. Please be aware that this feature is still a work in progress.
- As the developer, I aim to turn the “worst” physics into a more realistic experience. Although I haven’t personally driven a real truck, I’ve gathered insights from YouTube videos to improve the mod.
This mod is recommended for use with a steering wheel and clutch pedal, but it can also be enjoyed with other controllers.
If you have any requests, I’m open to updating the mod based on your feedback!
