This mod do not modify any truck. Just trailers

I'm asking for permission to the mod owners to make one file with all the mods i recommend.

Do you ever ask why your little K1500 can haul a oil tank trailer like is nothing?

Well turns out that every trailer (except the scout ones) are very light. so i add a bunch of weight to every trailer.
Now if you are going too fast and then you stop or turn without slowing down, the trailer will drag you out and posibbly tip the truck or worse.
You will need a super heavy truck to move super heavy cargo with ease, or even to be able to move it.

VERSION 2.1.1

-Fixed center of mass so the trailers aren't so back heavy.
-Fuel trailers have their weight up to a similar fully load trailer.

VERSION 2.0

This is the final version of this mod, unless it need some fix after the patch

Superheavys trailers (oil rig, heavy oil semi, heavy construction semi)
Oil Rig: down to 32.000 kg and improved the center of mass, was 43.000 kg
Heavy oil tank semi: down to 28.000 kg the fuel also goes down to match the weight and improved center of mass, was 40.000 kg
heavy contruction semi: down to 26.000 kg and imprived the center of mass, was 36.000 kg
Coiled turbine semi: down to 28.000 kg and improved the center of mass, was 36.000 kg
All trailers with 4 or 5 slot cargo down to 7.100 kg, was 9.100 kg
All trailers with 2 slot cargo down to 5.500 kg, was 7.100 kg

Added and optional file with stronger cranes.
Big cranes have 12.000 kg of counterweight, was 5.800
Big cranes have aprox. in beween 3 and 4 times more force.
Anchors have 6 times more force to suport the weight of the crane when anchored (smaller trucks will lift up a couple of cm above the road in certain flat terrains)
Small cranes weight unchanged
Small cranes have between 2 and 3 times more force

Thanks to everyone who downloaded the mod. i hope you enjoyed it.

Disclaimer: all the values are approximated, said values come from google and my own knowledge.
Scout trailers: weight unchanged
trailers: from 500 kg-1.500 kg to 7.100 kg
Semi trailers: from 2.000 kg to 9.100 kg
Heavy contruction equipment: from 12.000 kg to 36.200 kg (aprox)
oil tank trailer: from 2.500 kg to 17.100 kg (10.000 kg are from 12.000 L of fuel)
oil tank semi trailer: from 7.000 kg to 26.100 kg (17.000 kg are from 20.000 L fuel)
oil tank heavy semi trailer: from 10.500 kg to 40.000+ kg (30.000 kg are from 38.000 L of fuel)

Coiled turbine semi trailer: from 10.000 kg to 36.000 kg

Version 1.1

Fixes to the oil rig semi trailer:
-added wheels on the center (if your trailer leg bugs out, they will help supporting the falling trailer, and give you a chance to correct it with a heavy crane)
-added more force to the legs (now they will be able to lift the trailer)
Added more force to the cranes (all of them) 3 times more aprox (credist to ryankary12 for the big crane force values)
Added more weight to the big cranes from 2.000 kg to 10.000 kg, now the trucks shouldn't move as much when moving trailers

Installation and backup guide:

Make sure, you have WinRAR installed! No installation with subscribing as with all mods around here, that change base game files.

Manual installation:

  1. Download the file
  2. Navigate to the path you have SnowRunner installed to
  3. Follow the folders: SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client
  4. Create a folder called 'Backup' to save your original file.
  5. Copy the file 'initial.pak' into that Backup folder. Now you are ready to install the mod!
  6. Open the original file 'initial.pak' with WinRAR.
  7. Open the mod-file '(mod file)' with WinRAR, as well.
  8. Now drag and drop the [media]-folder from the mod-zip-file into 'initial.pak'.
  9. The files in 'initial.pak' will be overwritten.
  10. Close everything and you can start playing.
  11. If you don't like it and want to revert: Navigate back to your installation folder and delete the edited 'initial.pak'. Then copy the original file from your 'Backup'-folder, and everything is vanilla again.

(Instructions copied from Fuel capacities based on real data mod page)



Since the weights are up i recommend the MOAR POWAAAAAAA mod, and the Fuel capacities based on real data mod (you are going to need the extra fuel).
This three mods combined add a little more complexity to the haul business and also ease some mechanics that are not really fun (not for me at least) like the constant need to check the fuel.

are you going to add the Watchtower trailer?

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

No idea how much it weights to be honest

Hmmm not a very active forum I see. Well I notice my scout vehicles zip around everywhere not, don’t even really need awd in most cases. Is this kind of the point of this mod?

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

Well the mod do not modify the scout trailers, but all the other trailers, the ones made for trucks. if you combine the mod with the cargo mod your scouts (unless heavily modded) will not move any loaded trailer. Never mind the Tatarin, that is just a Heavy in a scout body

pwashby @pwashby

So what is this mod like without Moar Powaaa mod? I have installed it and noticed all my vehicles drive faster now. Don’t know if I like it yet, but I’m sure it makes using your mod without it miserable. Your thoughts?

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

You will have a harder time doing the early missions. Currently i'm doing my playthrough without the powa mod and i can do the tasks no problem. And for what i know the speed is unchanged, the torque is increased though.

This mod is amazing. Now trucks feel like trucks. Thank you for this.

pwashby @pwashby

I’m new to this. I just hit the subscribe button and it went green and told me it will install the next time I start game. I start game and I see it in there and activated it, is that it? I don’t feel much difference so don’t know if I did it correctly.

“Your installation reads:?Make sure, you have WinRar installed! No installation will subscribe as with all mods here, that change base game files”.

Sooo does this mean I need to manually install your mod for it to work or am I good to go?

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

It's manual install

Awesome Mod. Is the weight of the trucks okay, or could you retouch it too? Greetings!!

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

Hi, thanks. I checked every truck, and for the information i have available they are pretty well in terms of weight.
The addons may need a touch in terms of weight, mostly the ones that carry fuel, because they hold too little and are pretty light.

Antoniopua
Antoniopua @antoniopua

Thank you very much. Very kind. In Cat 745 c, there are three files, which are just the vehicle’s weight???

Postimg.cc

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

All of them add up.
You have 4 values of mass with differents centers of mass. for what i can see the truck weights 25.000 kg.

Antoniopua
Antoniopua @antoniopua

What would the 4 file be? I only see 3... The diesel tank for Cat 745c, has 1,600 liters, and a weight of 1,000! I put 20,000 liters, and 16,000 weight. They also have very little weight Saddle (10, 40...). Very kind. Thank you ;) Edito: I found the 4 files: 7000+7000+6000+(collision) 5000=25.000 Although the weights are more or less right, something could be done. Hummers H2 weighs 500 kilos more than reality.

LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

i can think of extra equipment for off-roading

Antoniopua
Antoniopua @antoniopua

The additional equipment should have its own weight, which would add to the total. I did a huge research job to find the real weight, and I used them in the game. Some vehicles had 5.000 Kg more than they should have... I am willing to share it with you, and that you add them to your mod :). Where could I get them up to get them? -if that’s okay with you. A greeting ;)

LO
LactobasilusOG @lactobaciluog

Maybe, the thing with the "trucks" files is that they have a lot of data and the weight is just a little part. Any change to those file will be totally uncompatible with any mod who change the same files.
Also my own truck files are almost completly modded, so i keep them to my own because i don't know how many changes they got, and not everyone will enjoy them.
Anyway, i'm now working in some modeling and back to full time work, so i have almost no time available.
I encorage you to make your own mod, i swear it's totally ok. You already make the hard part after all. but if you don't know how to do it, just send me the values and i will upload the files as soon as i can, (included as a separate file in this mod)

Antoniopua
Antoniopua @antoniopua

Te hablaré en español ;). Claro, para usarlos hay que ir poniéndolos de manera manual para no chafar otros Mod... El caso es que es fácil -aunque es pesado de hacer :(. Pensaré en cómo lo hago. Un saludo!!!
