Mod is compatible with Patch 19.1 from 19.10.2022! If you find a mistake, please let me know!

Fast facts:

  • manual installation only - see an easy tutorial for STEAM and EPIC below
  • fuel capacity changed to real values for every vanilla and addon truck
  • fuel consumption lowered for several engine types
  • especially for single players
  • also supports multiplayer

If you like the mod, please subscribe - thumbs up - unsubscribe =) Or stay subscribed to get update notifications!


One of the next patches:

  • lower idle consumption for some of the vehicles
  • better balancing. My target is to make every vehicle drivable between 30 and 50 minutes until the fuel is empty. However, trucks share different engines and gearboxes, so some trucks with very big fuel tanks will take longer until you have to get fuel for those.
  • I don't want to annoy you guys with updates, so I do only updates when the game gets a patch


Description:

This mod may not be for everybody!

It will change the experience of the game! Some vehicles in SnowRunner have way too little fuel capacity. I do understand the general sense of challenge and balance of why fuel was integrated into this game as it is. However, as a single-player and a fan of realism, I couldn't stand some of the trucks and how they were just not usable, at all without the need for refueling every 10 to 15 minutes. I started changing some trucks I didn't like but then I decided to search for real-life data and changed every single vehicle! =) Also, I changed some of the fuel consumptions, which felt way too high. This should not feel like cheat vehicles, fuel will be used up, but it definitely changes the balance of the game. If you like keep going for 30 to 60 minutes without refuling, this mod is for you!


Keep in mind (or clarification on power-to-weight):

More fuel means more weight. The graph 'power-to-weight' might change a bit.

It's like in reality: The fuel level slowly shrinks while driving. The power-to-weight ratio is increased. If you refuel, the truck gets heavier, thus the ratio decreases. The actual power stays the same at all times!

However, that little graph and that A+ and S+ rating is absolutely misleading and should be changed to actual numbers. That graph implies that if you lose one bar, you suddenly have a lot less power, which is just not true!

Here's a little example:

truck weight fueled up: 5000 kg, power: 400 hp = power-to-weight ratio 0,080 or 80 hp per ton.

truck weight low on fuel: 4700 kg = power-to-weight ratio 0,085 or 85 hp per ton.

So this difference in the ratio is nothing that makes a significant change to how the vehicle performs, then again, it is on some occasions enough to change that misleading power-to-weight graph.


Installation and backup guide:


Make sure, you have the latest version of WinRAR installed! Other software will cause issues! Always make sure you backup your files before editing!

Manual installation for EPIC:

  1. Use WinRAR! WinRAR supports *.pak files by default -> No support if you use other, more complicated software. (Download WinRAR for free: Win-rar.com)
  2. Find the path you installed Snowrunner to. The path is NOT the 'My Documents' folder! (You need to know where you installed your game - I can't tell you this)
  3. If you found your installation follow the path: SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client
  4. Open the file 'initial.pak' with WinRAR.
  5. Open the downloaded mod-file with WinRAR, as well.
  6. Drag and drop the '[media]' folder from the downloaded mod-file into your initial.pak
  7. Done!


Manual installation for STEAM:

  1. Use WinRAR! WinRAR supports *.pak files by default -> No support if you use other, more complicated software. (Download WinRAR for free: Win-rar.com)
  2. Find the path you installed Snowrunner to. Open Steam -> right-click SnowRunner -> Properties -> Local Files -> Browse
  3. Follow the folders: \preload\paks\client
  4. Open the file 'initial.pak' with WinRAR.
  5. Open the downloaded mod-file with WinRAR, as well.
  6. Drag and drop the '[media]' folder from the downloaded mod-file into your initial.pak
  7. Done!

Wow, looks like you've done a lot of research for this project. Thank you for posting your findings, for the work you put into it, and for a great Mod!

S-V.P.A.M. @s-vpam

Hi! Thank you for supporting and updating the mod.

K7M: it is 800 L, look for "Бак топливный" in the user manual: Asm-altay.ru

The Pike (Зил-133ГЯ) IRL has one left fuel tank with a capacity of 170 L: Denisovets.ru
The in-game one has two, so it could be 340 L, just like the Zil-131. Hope this helps. If you need any info in Russian, feel free to ask.

Nice, thanks! I'll check it again! I still have some issues, Russian language is quite difficult. Вы никогда не перестаете учиться! (:

Hey everybody! I finally had time to create an update for this mod! It should be fully working with Season 8! Have fun!

What is different fuel_capacities_v17.1_complete_initial.pak.1.zip VS. fuel_capacities_v17.1.zip

EV
ElfVierzehn @elevenfourteen1

The complete file lets you just overwrite the original one, the non-complete file is for players who use other manually installed mods as well. I had to remove the complete file, as it is not compatible with the current game version, because of the latest truck DLC. I don't have time to update for now. The fuel_capacities_v17.1.zip does still work, but without the Western Star Wolf Pack. I will release a version somewhen in the future.

Aramatsu tank, based on the John Deere Forwarder 1910G, holds 184 l.

edrazale
edrazale @na6435005

In comparison, it looks like in-game tatra 805 tank really holds about 180-190L, and Bm17 about 550L
Irl Maz-500 has only one tank, when ZIkz 5368 has 2 of them, so about 400L (not sure)
Voron 4380 has only additional 210L tank
F750 has double 50+50Gal tank, so about 378L

Hello there! Please could you make a version that includes Responsive Steering mod?

EV
ElfVierzehn @elevenfourteen1

Noted. I'll look into it, but please don't expect anything anytime soon. I am in the middle of bigger projects for other games and SnowRunner is for now just priority to update after game patches.

lexo1000
lexo1000 @lexo1000

No worries I understand :) I apply Responsive Steering on your mod by simply set Responsiveness to 1.0 for all trucks. Here is the result if you want to upload it on your mod page : Drive.google.com

Did you install the fuel_capacities_v17.1_complete_initial.pak.zip? If yes, I just realized mod.io messed up the file and the way it was packed. I just reuploaded it, and it should work now, sorry for that!

you need to instal the mod manualy

EV
ElfVierzehn @elevenfourteen1

Yes, manual installation - and use WinRAR, like in the description. Subscription does not work with mods that edit base game files. I could do it, but then you would see every truck twice in the game. A bit overkill, so I keep manual installation for this one.
