From the beginning in the Chevrolet CK1500, I felt something was weird with the steering.

Playing with an xbox360 pad, I couldn't steer properly. Moving the stick slightly was not making the car slightly turning and pressing it a little more was driving it into a drift or spin. So I ended up doing spikes in my steering, giving small but strong hits to get small steering moves and constantly correcting. And what acted on the Chevy became more obvious with bigger trucks : slight stick moves was not acting before I stayed on this position long enough and then the truck was over-reacting running into drift.

So I tried a few parameters before finding the most obvious : Responsiveness.

And all of a sudden, eveything became smooth and clean.

No more lag or dead-zone effect, no more spikes needed to do slight steering adjustments, a very small stick move was translating into a very gentle truck direction adjustement. I could now place my wheels exactly where I aim on dangerous roads and drive long gentle curves at full speed keeping my finger pushing very slowly on the stick without over-reactions of the trucks. It was so much enjoyable and particulary with heavy trailers on roads where steering must be as soft as possible. It was just night and day.

So this mod corrects responsiveness of each truck and as there's a file per truck, you can correct one or all the trucks you want. As I said I play the game with a pad and I wonder if this would suit or improve driving with a wheel. I would be interested if wheel drivers could report their experience.

In my case, I really enjoy the game at a higher level. I hope you will too.

snoozerio @snoozerio

it modifies initial.pak files and should be installed manually

vantoljason @vantoljason

just installed it, not 100 percent sure its working. ill try it out again tomorrow, although i do have the texture mod on the initial file as well.. maybe it doesnt work with that. the vanilla steering is crap, all or nothing im glad this mod is out there

vantoljason @vantoljason

mi la versión 1.2 me funcionaba bien hasta las actualizaciones en el beta de pruebas en el normal no hacía nada, pero como no suelo jugar no me importaba pero cuando dejó de funcionar en el beta me fastidió bastante. Ahora voy a probarlo en los dos a ver que tal. utilizo un volante trusmaster de ferrari de por lo menos 10 años y va de maravilla.

pindab0ter @pindab0ter

There's a bug where when you slightly decrease the steering angle it starts steering 100%. I can provide more info if required, but this should get you starting.
