Turbo Retarder Clutch gearboxes use torque converter to simulate its behavior.

Gearboxes that can be paired realistically with engines.
All of the gearboxes have multiple ratios. Default ratios should be the best for normal operations, but others are available.

Gearbox naming follows this recipe:

Code: Select all

G 231-16 CPS

23 - Max torque that gearbox can handle (x100 to get Nm)
0/1 - Over/direct drive
16 - Number of gears in the box
CPS/PowerShift 3/TRC - Manual/Automated/Turbo Retarder Clutch transmission
Some additional badges for Actros MP4.
It also contains new icons for every engine and gearbox group.

Adjusting the sound:

Code: Select all

1) Open the mod and go to the engines you wish to change in "\def\vehicle\truck\*TRUCK YOU ARE ADJUSTING THE SOUND FOR*\engine"
2) Locate the sound data line that looks like "sound: "/sound/truck/*SOUND BANK NAME*.bank"
3) Change the *SOUND BANK NAME* to what the sound modder named his sound bank.
4) Save and repack the mod
5) Make sure the drivetrain mod loads after the sound mod!

No problems with that, take your time. Also, if you need any help for data entry, just ask, it would be my pleasure

EDIT :

Is it ok that I make a patch for capital MP3 Rework ?

If you agree, I would let you distribute it as you see fit

As far as I see it, it should work, make sure it loads after Capitals rework. The only problem is the loss of badges. I will add a patch tomorrow, it shouldn't be much work to get it working.

That was fast! Now only thing missing is the badge for the OM502LA, but we will have to ask Capital for that one I guess

Yes he will have to do that one. Ask him nicely and I will update it when he does it. It was less work than expected.

as far as I can tell, really nice job :) only bad thing is that the 1.2 link is not there right now :p

Only place where I can say that snoman was superior was one small thing on the gearbox side, He had more choice of final drive, and actually restricted final drive ratio to specific chassis (Xx4 chassis did not have the same final drive ratio as Xx2 chassis, which is true to real life), but for the rest, I can say that your work is a clear improvement on what he did
