This is a comprehensive (WIP) mod that change a lot of things. This mod's objective: the dificulty of the game will come from the cargo and no from the trucks themselfs.
Pick your scout and enjoy it, don't be stuck in the one that is the clear better option.

The original game focus on the downgrade of trucks and scout to make the game more easy or difficult, depending on what machine you pick, that result in selling all starting trucks, going to Russian and picking far superior trucks with Always - AWD and Activable / Always - DiffLock to make the game less tedious.

Because of that, the cargo and the trailes (even the gigantic ones) where underweighted, the wheels had like no friction or grip, or you will never move any cargo at all. Another result of that desing was smaller scouts could move 2 pallets full of cement or bricks even in the most ridicolous of terrain conditions, a job that is reserved for the trucks.

This mod change that to make the trucks actually capable, and the cargo and trailer heavier. More options will be added as the time goes on until there is no more to change or add (unlikely)

With time you will learn what truck can do the job that you need to do, and some jobs will be left for later, just like the original game, but for different reasons, now clearing the roads and building bridges is far more important, the elevations will change a lot your route plan, and some cargo/trailers will be better moved with 2 trucks instead of 1 to make your life easier

This mod change/overwrite:
- All suspension files (DLC included): Stiffer ones for trucks (the rear suspension is stronger to support the increased weight of the cargo/trailes/semitrailers); more soft and "offroad" for scouts.
- All wheel files (even the templates, but no the trailer-semitrailes ones): More grip in general and more performance across all terrains
- Scout Files (No Tatarin): Changed weight distribution and wheel placement when needed (if you have mods that already change the scouts it will overwrite it)
- All engines files: Trucks +50% power, scouts overhaul, russians and americans have now equal power. More power on the old engines (not a % over the original but a new value in each one)
- All gearboxes files: Trucks now have 10 gears, and scouts have 6 gears (except that one scout is using a truck's gearbox, in that case it will have 10 gears) and more speed (but no like racing car speed, these are gearboxes for offroad and heavy cargo. Some are more complex and have more functions but no gearbox will reach 100km/h - 60m/h, maybe) Aprox 20% more speed at the higher gear across the gearboxes.
Also H is intended for cruising speed on dirt, L, L- and L+ are intended for loaded trucks in mud, dirt, elevations, and asfalt (if the truck is not moving), but you can do what it suits best for you.
- All cargo files: cargo have been reweighted accordingly to a real life counterpart, and some unespecified cargo, like general crates weight more now (you can suggets weight changes if can extrapolate an example to support you claim).
- All trailers files: trailers weight more (x5 - x15 more depending on the model). Heavy trailers are also heavier, the bigger ones are aprox. 40.000 kg (big rig, etc.) the center of mass is also ajusted, i'm no masoquist or evil, i don't want a trailer to tip and us to need to restart the whole mission because the trailer don't move, even if Zeus himseft will help us. More repair parts, fuel and wheels
- All addons files: Addons reweighted, center of mass changed. More repair parts, fuel and wheels, also more weight, stronger cranes.

This mod doesn't change:
- Winches files
- Does not add more engines for trucks or scouts
- Does not add more gearboxes option to the trucks or scouts


- MANUAL INSTALLATION -

Open Initial.pak located in Epic games\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client, Move the Media file into the initial.pak

Fixed cargo container
Balanced gearbox and engines (fuel consumption) and minor ajusments to speed
All trucks with actual fuel capacity (some very tiny tanks bought a little upgrade from a local shop)
More wheel options for scouts, for some off road and for heavy trucks

So I was using this mod completing the missions in Michigan. And on the mission to get the cargo containers dropped at the ship ran into the containers being almost impossible to move. Looked in the files and I am guessing the cargo called is "cargo_container_large_4" which when the first instance of body mass is set it has 30050 as a value, but the rest of the time its set as 3050.

Fixed

Special semitrailers will be hotfixed, an error in the numbers makes them very unstable in some cases.
Also new mudtires for scouts, and a minor fix for the Hummer H2, (it shouldn't be so slow)

Schego1ev @schego1ev

this mod makes the big trailer very unstable, can be turned over on a small snowdrift( I can not take away the dismantled drill on the mountain river (maybe this problem only in the 11.2 version)

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

Do you have the exact name of the trailer, and the problem you are having with it? (the more details the better)

S
Schego1ev @schego1ev

sorry for my english, I use google translator partly)) the trouble with the "black bird" contract "disassembly of the drilling rig" and with the oil rig salvage semi-trailer (Alaska, Mountain river), this semi-trailer flips in the first road corner

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

Hotfix incoming, i'm sorry for the rookie mistake

S
Schego1ev @schego1ev

I'm guessing this doesn't really affect any modded vehicles unless they use the same vanilla gearboxes, tires, etc.

Right?

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

You're correct

Stazco @stazco

does the fuel have weight in sr?

and if yes - does its weight change when used? (i mean does the total vehicle or trailer weight depend from the amount of fuel in tank/addon/trailer?)

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

The fuel has his own weight. I'm sure that do not change, but maybe yes.

Какая строчка отвечает за вес груза?

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

You have to install it manually. the weight is not noticeable in straight pave road, but you will notice it in elevations, mud, snow and dirt.
Also, i speak Spanish and English.

Mod looks good and I'd like to try it. Do you know if it is compatible with Realism Overhaul V2 for SnowRunner & Repair Parts for SnowRunner (This is apart of the realism overhaul mod). Thank you

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

I will say no. not many manually installed mods are compatible

Do you think it’s possible to get this to consoles ?

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

I would love to, but this is basically a hotfix in the in game files.
i kinda can do a mod file for each truck, scout and trailer, but you will have double of everything. Same as vanilla but with a "mod" tag. Also i don't kow if the cargo can be convert into mods that work for the jobs and missions.
Edit: is there is a way i don't know it, but i think is not possible use this kind of mods in consoles, sorry.

OpaFritz @opafritz

If you by any chance feel the itch to try it would be mayor appreciated probably not just by me. And I wouldn’t mind having double the trucks if the game would finally don’t feel so weird lol;)
