    Improved Truck Physics for ATS
    Compatible with 1.2.x of ATS, but should work on older versions too!

    - 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:
    • Changed cabin weight to a more realistic value
    • 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
    • Decreased autocentering speed of steering wheel. Decreased truck turning ability
    • Increased rotational wheel resistance and air resistance. Also, increased inertia - slower acceleration and stopping
    • Increased clutch strength for more realistic clutch-transmission behavior
    • Decreased retarder effectiveness
    • Increased chassis suspension travel values for vanilla trucks
    • Slightly decreased overall damping force for truck/trailer chassis suspension
    • Transmission inertia decreased
    • Added tyres slip possibility. Tyres a little less rigid now
    • Increased flywheel resistance - RPM drops faster, when not in gear
    • Increased intensity of engine braking - truck slow downs faster, when truck is not given throttle
    • Decreased engine compression - truck loses speed more quicker, when no throttle is given
    • Increased transmission resistance - more losses in transmission
    - 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
    • Kenworth K100 by Ivan, Ols, AU44, Oleg_Conte, darklorrd, Stas556, HaXwell, rus47tam, V4sil3, BoomStas556, dmitry68, Kriechbaum, SCS, Henki73, Waggi74, Pauke2004, vitalik062
    • Peterbilt 387 by Ch_Vitalik, Kirilloid22, Dmitry68, Gosha Motor
    • Freightliner Century by Vinzel
    • Freightliner Classic XL by Softclub-NSK, Oleg Conte, Sergej Baltazar, dmitry68, Ventyres, odd_fellow, SCS Software, vitalik062
    • Freightliner Coronado by Softclub-NSK, Stas556, dmitry68, kriechbaum, knox_xss, David Otto, Joe Smith, vitalik062
    • Freightliner FLB by SCS Software, odd_fellow, Kriechbaum, ventyres, vitalik062
    • International Lonestar by SCS Software, Franck
    • International Eagle 9300i by Kreichbaum, odd_fellow, Panther, SCS, guidot, KW_Driver
    • International 9400I by slava1, modsru
    • Mack Titan by FRANK_WOT, Андрей Васильев, vitalik062, Kriechbaum

    Installation:
    1. Extract .scs file from downloaded archive to mod folder of ATS
    2. Open in-game mod manager and enable "Improved truck physics" mod
    3. Play!

    Important:
    If you will use this mod with supported truck mods (look at added trucks list), use it with higher priority!
