Description about Improved truck physics v2.2.1 by AlexeyP
Improved truck physics 2.2.1 for Ets2 1.26.x game version
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.
Mod is suitable for keyboard/gamepad/steering wheel drivers.
Features list for actual version 2.2.1
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;
19.Added 3 new windshield wiper modes for all trucks (4 modes for some trucks);
20.And other changes...
Changelog for actual ver. 2.2.1
-Fixed incorrect cog_height_offset values;
-Removed unneccessary animations.sui and animations_uk.sui files for Renault Magnum by Knox_xss.
Compatible game versions
Mod should work well on 1.25-1.26 game versions.

Other trucks not from the list above can be adapted manually (see section "truck mod adaptation")
Optimal controls and gameplay settings to start with (works for keyboard and gamepad users).
Steering wheel owners should setup controls the way they prefer
