This mod makes the in-game driving experience a little more realistic.

Here is an outline of what has changed (NOTE: Points with a # symbol indicate something is not yet implemented):

Code: Select all

DEFINITIONS
- Cargo
  - Cargo and trailer combinations reworked.
    - Inspired by LAFAYET47's Ownable Cargo Market Rework mod. Consider mine the 'lite' version of his.
      - Cargo not requiring a cold-temperature climate will no longer use refrigerated trailers.
      # Some exposed cargo transported by Flatbed trailers can now be transported via Curtainsider trailers.
- Vehicles
  - All AI cars, trucks, and buses have realistic acceleration and top speed behavior.
    - For every car, engine power and weights have been carefully researched. Each car will accelerate differently. The primary source of information is "automobile-catalog.com". The secondary source of information is "car.info".
    - Top speed for every car is based on either factory tire specifications, a set speed limiter by the manufacturer, or a theoretical calculation from "automobile-catalog.com".
    - Top speed for every semi-truck varies according to certain configurations and conditions (Euro maximum 90 km/h).
      - Trucks pulling some oversized loads will travel according to the displayed speed number on their trailers.
    - Top speed for every bus is 100 km/h. Most of them, if not all, have been at the correct setting.
  # In traffic, there is more variety of trailers (empty and loaded).
    # The following Combination Vehicles (CV) are added...
      # Doubles.
    - Traffic density has been reworked.
      - Special thanks to cipinho for letting me use part of his Real Traffic Density mod!
- World
  - Traffic signals have longer and realistic timings.
    - Green light interval is at least 20 seconds.
      - Left-turn interval is 10 seconds.
    - Amber (yellow) light interval is 3 seconds.
    - 5-second delay interval between signals.
    - Every signal (except on larger intersections) is disabled from 23:00 to 05:00.
SOUND
# AI
  # Car, truck, and train sounds are emitted based on engine specifications.
    # Example: If you see an AI Scania with a V8 badge, you'll hear the actual V8 sound as it drives past.
  # Horn sounds for both cars and trucks have changed.
  # Police sirens are replaced with more realistic-sounding ones (Euro style, particularly German).
    # For now, the sirens are German style until game code allows for multiple styles of sirens for certain countries.
# Environment
  # Bad Spring/Summer/Fall Weather
    # Rainfall is slightly louder, noticeable during heavy precipitation.
    # Feel Thor's power through your speakers with better thunder sounds!
  # Bad Winter Weather
    # When it is snowing, all you can hear is the sound of air (wind).
# Mover
  # Sounds have been added to various movers such as flags, hot air balloons, and commercial airliners. Some sounds such as the helicopter have been improved.
*PLEASE NOTE*
This mod must be loaded in-game at a higher priority over other sound or AI mods.

I hope you all will have a better driving experience with EDXP. Feedback is always welcome. Safe travels :)

How can I change the FOV to 90 degrees? Or can you perhaps upload another version with the stock FOV?

Before this mod I was modifying various files to my liking, therefore I never thought about sharing what I have done. So now I have!

If you open the .SCS file and navigate to def\camera\units , you will find all of the interior .SII files. Open them with a text document program and find "camera_fov". You can set the number to however you want it to be! Or simply delete the "camera" folder to stick with the stock FoV. To my liking, I preferred 70 degrees because any number higher than 70, I could not judge my speed accurately.

Thanks for the reply. I found a mod with various settings and found 90 degrees to be just right. The other features in this mod are great, though.

As the creator of this little mod pack, I will do my best to keep everything compatible with the latest version of ETS2. I have updated the download link in the first post.
