Twin Sticks and Toothpicks: How to use 2 shifters at once in ATS to replicate compound transmissions

Howdy fellow truckers, still enjoying that beautiful Mack R truck and those oh so sweet screamin' Detroit sounds? I know I am. One thing about some of these old (and, surprisingly, new) trucks is that they used compound transmissions before airshifts became common. Compound transmissions are two tra...

Re: Wishlists Megathread

Any chance we could have the option to have our range selection act as a fast split (no need to take it out of gear to change range, like a 10 speed going from 5 to 6 for example)? I just want it to behave like the splitter selection works. My reasoning is that I have the Mack R mod and a realistic ...

Re: Be able to "Catch" Gears While RPMs are Rising with Advanced Shifting

Would love this and marcf's suggestion. For now I simulate the torque load based on the situation at the time and clutch if needed. I'd also love actual clutch brake simulation to both help with shifts and just add some more realism.

Re: Wishlists Megathread

The above post about a clutch brake has its merits but until the clutch actually works like a truck clutch it for me is very low priority, I might add I am all for realistic options. The clutch at this time is more like a 1100cc car than a truck and for me THE most unrealistic part of this sim! A h...

Re: Wishlists Megathread

Just thought of some more clutch/transmission action I feel would make the game slightly more immersive; clutch brake simulation. I know it's a small detail, but I think the touch of realism would be worth it. Clutch brakes do act like regular brakes IRL, but are weaker and wear out much faster when...

Re: Wishlists Megathread

Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but a quick search didn't bring it up in this thread. Could we have more realistic splitter simulation for us gear floaters? Going from say, 7L to 7H isn't too much of a big deal, but the gear change is still almost instantaneous, when it should really b...

Re: Route Advisor Mod Collection v4.8 [ETS2 & ATS v1.32] (Upd 17.08.18)

Anyone having trouble extracting or modifying the files in the .scs files? I'm trying to delete the mirrors so I can have the default ones from the game but I can't delete or open anything because the archive is read only.

Re: CSIO Technologies SKRS scam: how to stop them screwing more innocent customers

SKRS isn't made from an Eaton shift knob (Eaton is a brand name)... Thanks for the info Barak, I checked out your thread and website and it's really cool to see the progress you've made. I think CSIO was a bit deceptive in their wording, because I swore they said the knobs were real/geninue/from tr...

Re: CSIO Technologies SKRS scam: how to stop them screwing more innocent customers

Sad to see the fall of CSIO. I remember when they first announced that they were taking orders on Reddit and a few people jumped on it. After a few good testimonies (especially after Squirrel made his video) I ordered mine. It took months to actually get but I was already prepared for that when I or...
