Ah that explains it. So the load weights have been adjusted to fit the overall scale of the game. Which makes sense to me. I'm just relieved that it is an intended change rather than something I've done by accident to my profile. If the gradients in the game are to scale then the vehicle weights would have to be too or you'd never be able to get up the hills. I get it. Thanks for explaining the change. :D

In EU is allowed weight a truck (truck + trailer) 40t with 5 axles and 44t with 6 axles . When you take truck 7-8t + trailer about 8t so we have available from 24 to 28 tons of cargo. Who would have only filled halfway trailer? It could do the calculation of cargo weight by weight trucks with who is actually driving.

What do you think about this idea?

Please excuse me for my English, I'm not good at it.

It is not always just a question of filling up the load to 44t total, sometimes the volume will stop you way before that point.
Which is why many of the trailers with cargo in game is not 25t or above. ;)

Yes, in game stop, but in real no, because trucks have not real force in game...

Well, I do only count 14 cows in the trailer, 25t for 14 cows is a bit over the top. :lol:

With the latest generation of animal trailers you don't even see them
The trailer is almost completely closed with those ventilators on the sides suggesting aircon
Too bad SCS did not choose this model so the question of how many cows would have been pointless

But not only the masses... There seems still to be some lack also in the cargo compositions... ...Just wondering why there is no Cement http://www.casco.eu/index.php?contentID ... ctcatID=94, Tiles http://www.rako.cz/en/products/marmo.ht ... e=bathroom, Glue, Beans https://www.ruoka.net/cgi-bin/nph-cgi/n ... 920500.jpg, potatoes , roofing http://www.icopal.com/Content/Products/ ... ranes.aspx, flowers https://www.ftd.com/, or other seedlings and saplings http://sppiblog.org/wp-content/uploads/ ... dlings.jpg, or other pots and pans up for trucking and hauling at ETS2? They don't travel via steam do they?

Sometimes we still do need even paper?

Right?
