the game is using coiled, it helps with the game physics, and it could be a good compromise to have the fifth wheel closer to the cab.

the game can use whatever you tell it to, you can make them normal lines but they would be useless without the rubber band to hold them in place

I agree, the game can use whatever you tell it to, but you have to keep it realistic. Since you can't use the rubber band and the straight line will look ridiculous stretching, coiled is the solution.

Here's a solution that could work with the way the game currently handles air and electric lines. Ignore the arrows in this picture; I got this picture from a trucking forum in a thread about something else. SCS could make the black straight portion of the lines and the bungee spring part of the truck. They could be static; they don't have to be animated. Then the red, blue, and green lines would attach to it the same way they currently do.

It could work! I like your idea.

Honestly it's been kinda quiet on the forums and i don't know what there is and all we are doing is waiting for new content like trucks, Wyoming, Iberia, new lighting, texas, multiplayer, 49x sleeper and other stuff
Take it with a grain of salt nothing is 100% sure

Hi guys, I have a question!

The Cascadia's windshield wipers were modified in one of the new versions of the game, for me it is a mistake, since in all the images and videos I have seen of this truck, the windshield wipers can be seen from any position.

I remember when the Cascadia was released in the game, the model was correct, I don't know why they changed it.

Should I report this as a bug? :?:

@supersobes The big fleets spec sliding 5th wheels for resale value but take the locking pin out so it can't be slid by the driver.

Coiled lines are still common actually. The rubber straight lines are much better and less prone to breaking in the winter time. The coiled lines are just plastic and break in the cold.
