Siraij's Better Tire Pressure Mod

This mod delivers more realism and immersion to the game by tweaking the air pressure values on tires to make them look more like in real life. It's similar to the mod "Realistic tire pressures" created by MudSeries, but this one makes a lot of things better compared to it.

Note: The effects are more noticeable in game than in the screenshots!

What's Different to the vanilla game experience and the realistic tire pressure mod by MudSeries?

#1 Different Tire Pressure for Trucks and Scouts and their respective trailers!

Just like in real life, the air pressure in tires of your scouts is now different from the ones in your trucks. It's not the same pressure for all vehicles like in other mods!

#2 Different Tire Pressure for each kind of tires (highway, all-terrain, offroad)!

Depending on the purpose of a tire it now has different air pressure values (looking different in game). Just like in real life where all-terrain tires usually have more pressure than offroad or mud tires, whereas highway tires are usually somewhere in between. It's not the same pressure for all kind of tires like in other mods!

#3 Only one file is affected!

No more need to install dozens of files in the wheels folder (i.e. 33 files with the mod by MudSeries) and the need to merge them with other mods that affected the same files!

#4 Affects new mods you install or mods that you already have installed!

While MudSeries' mod only affected the edited 33 files in the wheels folder, this mod affects all wheels at once which means it is also enabled on additional truck mods and other stuff you add to your game. You don't need to merge or edit these files anymore!

How to install the mod?

Close your game and be sure to backup your original "initial.pak" file!

1) Download and unzip the file.

2) Go to your game directory (i.e. Epic Library\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client\) and open "initial.pak" with WinRAR (it's free).

3) Go to the right place by doubleclicking on the "[media]" folder and then again on the "_templates" folder that are shown within WinRAR.

4) Drag & Drop the file "trucks.xml" you downloaded into WinRAR and confirm the action with "OK" in the upcoming window without changing any values. It will overwrite the original file.

5) Close WinRAR. Done.

Start your game and enjoy!

(Important note: You need to use the latest/ current version of WinRAR for it to work! Otherwise your game will crash!)

Tested in countless hours of play. Works like a charm and also works in Co-Op/ Multiplayer. If your friend want's to see/ experience the same stuff, then he also needs to install the mod!

may I include these changes (with credit) in my own mod?

idiocracy_ @idiocracy1

Any updates?

idiocracy_ @idiocracy1

Have you tested subscribe install now that mods will be allowed in co op for the next patch?

idiocracy_ @idiocracy1

Does this work with the new update?

Jakko @jakko

i dont think so, the file size for the mod are much smaller than the vanilla games truck.xml file, id just subscribe to the mod so it'll give you a notification for if and when this mod gets updated

Ra1nasu @ra1nasu

A small but very nice detail, good job really liking it!

blackdrizzt @blackdrizzt

Never touch the [Your drive]:\[Game folder]\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client\initial.pak , that can destroy your mod option!!! That can also happen with other mods!!!
If you load 10 mods and overwrite the initial.pak 10 times. Then how much work?

Siraij @siraij

That's why you open it and put the files manually in it. You don't override your initial.pak. If you use mods that overrite the same .xml-file then you need to merge the files into one using winmerge for example. Everything works fine if you do it correctly and follow instructions ;)

idiocracy_ @idiocracy1

He is posting this all over the place, i think he is just mad he messed up his own game because he didn't follow instructions.

Gregster1977 @gregster1977

how do i open "initial.pak" when its not a winrar file ?

Siraij @siraij

Right-klick on it and selcet "open with" and choose WinRAR or 7zip as programm/app to open it. You need to use the latest version or it doesnt work!

idiocracy_ @idiocracy1

Does subscription work?
If manual install is needed, will it work in coop. If so, what do the other players see?

Siraij @siraij

As far as I know, all mods work in multiplayer as long as everyone has the same mods installed. Subscription doesn't work as I still haven't figured out, how to prepare mods properly for that case

WolFRocK @wolfrock

Hello, Siraij. Can I use your Wheel Softness settings in my mod Realism Overhaul? I experimented with different settings and tried different mod options, your settings are perfect.

I will indicate you as the creator of these settings in my mod

Siraij @siraij

Yes, of course! :)

bigbjb1973 @bigbjb1973

its a shame tire pressure isn't an option in the only makes sense.

luiscone10 @luiscone10

Nice, you're the GOAT.

el2barto @el2barto

Well done, great work, thanks!!! I was thinking of posting an all-in-one package as well, to help other people, but seeing the great work you're doing I'll leave it to you. Thanks again!!
"Since a lot of mod creator's didn't appreciate that their work got praised in an All-In-One-Modpack" -> kids with ego problems, seriously.

dexadrinnegaming @dexadrinnegaming

Question please. Does this mod alter any tyre stats for instance mud tyres get more grip etc etc. Or does purely just give the tyres a look that weight is added to them.

Siraij @siraij

It only alters the look. No additional grip etc. The other values remain untouched. They can be altered in the same file though (trucks.xml), if you want to make the game easier or harder ;-)

dexadrinnegaming @dexadrinnegaming

Thanks mate. I just wanted a visual which you have provided. without it, it looked like the vehicles were levitating lol
