Published by kasjer12 (mod ID: 140900)


I heard that only 80% of this mod works in PTS. I will try to figure out something, because I don't know much about PTS (never using) For now mod is only SINGLEPLAYER... sorry :(

If you find any bug, want to improve/change something or have some ideas please write in the comment.

Corrected and added a few things (a little based on the already existing mods). I wanted more realism but at the same time get more from the game without limitations and to fix shortcomings that were annoying

Relase also on my YouTube - more info and download options:

Mod was created on 5.1 game version

Nothing yet, just relase.

Full Changelog version 1.0.0 :
- All price set to 1
- No rank restrictions
- No regional restrictions
- No need exploration to buy vehicles and parts
- More choice of tires for all vehicles
- Slightly balanced grip of tire types (e.g. the original mud tires in scouts were worse on snow than allterain)
- Visually reduced pressure in off-road tires and a little bit in others
- Added missing raised suspension for some vehicles (can be mounted stock or raised in the garage for more vehicles)
- Twinster has all steering axles and all-wheel drive
- Semi-trailer ramp has 16 wheels instead of 8 for improved patency.
- More slots for cargo:
Low loader – 3
High goose neck – 4
- Increased and balanced cargo weight - can feel the difference between empty and loaded trailer and between cargo types
- Better balance of fuel and service trailers' and addons' capacity:
eg: Repair trailer 1000points, Fuel trailer 1000points but Maintainer Service 500repair and 500oil.
- Medium-sized trees are easier to knock down.
- More smoke for bigger and older vehicles (modern and smaller ones don't emit much more smoke)
- Life time and quantity of the particles increased
- Slightly increased strength of rain and snow


First of all, for safety, back up your game saves - %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\SnowRunner\base\storage\
oryginal initial.pak - ..\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client (somewhere in game instalation path)

Lazy installation - if you want only my mod:

1. Go to game instalation path for eg.: ..\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client
2. Here you have "initial.pak"
3. Replace with my "initial.pak" file
That's all, enjoy !

• Advanced instalation - useful when you want to install more and other modifications:

1. You need newest WinRAR
2. Go to game instalation path for eg.: ..\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client
3. Here you have "initial.pak", open this in WinRAR
4. I only changed files in [media] folder/subfolders
5. Now open also my downloaded [media] folder in WinRAR
6. Drag & Drop whole moded [media] into oryginal [media] - like replace - only newer files will replace automatically
choose only files you want but be careful because wrong replace may cause bugs and crashes

• How to install other mods now ?
So look at my files into [media] - I have only changed these files where modify date is "2020", the "1980" dated files are untouched.
When you have downloaded new other mod see to it's files and look if you can change new mods files without corruption (see by modify dates)
If there is corruption because some new mod file and my file is dated to 2020 then open both files in notepad and see differences - then manually adjust both versions
Bay the way, you can also compare my moded files with oryginal ones and see exactly what I have changed
To compare I recommend Notepad++ with "Compare plugin" or WinMerge because they highlight the changes (but you can use even stock Windows notepad)

Popsmokess @popsmoke4

My game only crashes when i going to start the game when i have installed this mod??.... :/

khvan2015 @khvan2015

Не работает , когда фикс ? Doesnt work , when we will get fix?

DomDXD136 @domdxd136

Doesn't work for me... I get a black screen during game loading and need to do a forced log out of Windows.

tlccompco @tlccompco

Just wanted to drop in a thank you for the mod. It seems like a good base to do a lot of other modding on top. I will mod all my trucks individually but this makes a good starting point. I did want to let you know the Ford 750 and the TUZ Aceton or whatever it's named is are not available when using this. Another issue is that the 4th slot upgrade on the lowboy is breaking the controls for the ramps. It's okay if you just using it for frieght but I like to use it to haul around the big Caterpillar. Thanks again

how to install this without unlocked all and price value?

kasjer12 @kasjer12

unfortunately, the first thing I changed was the price and unlocking, and after that I changed many other things in the same files, so it will be difficult to reverse automatically... You would have to make a change to each vehicle and part file and manually change it, for example:
Country = "US"
Price = "4800"
UnlockByExploration = "true"
UnlockByRank = "12"

ersanhakan3 @ersanhakan3

Where to find these files? Cant figure out

ilyaganster019 @ilyaganster019

Hey. Does not work on version 6.0.

kasjer12 @kasjer12

yes, maybe, unfortunately I don't have how to check it at the moment :(

Mandragola72 @mandragola72

Scusate tanto ragazzi, sono nuovo e non capisco come installare la mod, nel file che ho scaricato non c'è il file "initial.pak", come lo procuro? So che sarà una domanda stupida ma abbiate pazienza, grazie.

kasjer12 @kasjer12

Ammetto che potresti esserti perso... ;) Puoi scaricare il file initial.pak da questo link:
1. Vai al percorso di installazione del gioco, ad es.: .. \SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client
2. Qui hai "initial.pak"
3. Sostituisci con il mio file "initial.pak"

Mod work's great. I played through without the mods and now playing through with the mods after new update that we got today and the mod still work's fine. I just had to re-copy them. Great work!

kasjer12 @kasjer12

Thank you for the information that it's working on newest SnowRunner, and I'm glad you like it !

ktkakira1 @ktkakira1

Garbage files that don't work. delete

kasjer12 @kasjer12

Some changes may not work on PTS. Everything worked fine on version 5.1. Maybe in newer versions the creators have changed a lot and it doesn't work anymore. Try to copy the files again if you recently updated because the files may have been overwritten back to the original ones during the upgrade

Sashaw101 @sashaw101

Trash mod, delete.

kasjer12 @kasjer12

ok, your decision :) , in the video and in the description I showed what this mod changes. If you play PTS, some changes may be missing...

gbee @gbee

No noticeable effect.

kasjer12 @kasjer12

See the video on youtube that I prepared (link in description) - I showed a few changes there. If you play PTS then some are supposedly not working
