Probably been asked for multiple times but don’t know how difficult it would be to implement but as in real life say you’re in France it would be good to see license plates from other countries driving around and not just the country you’re in. Goes for ATS too. You’re in Nevada and see Californian & say Oregon or any other state. Would add to realism.

So I have some wishes as well. Pardon my English, for I am ESL.

First, wishes regarding specific trucks.
For 2012 Iveco Stralis (Hi-Way) I'd like to have the option to remove sideskirts. AFAIK it is the only truck in the game that does not have naked tanks option in 4x2 chassis.
It would be also nice if the HI-WAY chrome badge as well as the ITOY award badge on doors and the text on a sun visor were removable.

And this is probably not gonna happen, but I'd like to see proper Euro 6 chassis that fits Stock II sideskirts. Hi-Way chassis in the game is currently modelled after EEV version.

For 2009 Volvo FH, I just want a D13 engine.

And second, it would be great to merge retarder increase/decrease buttons into engine brake controls since we already have auxiliary_brakes[] array in the transmission defs. Most trucks have exhaust brake or transmission retarder controls on a steering column stalk, few have a single button to turn on/off max exhaust brake, and some Scania trucks have a floor button, so there is little reason to have separate controls. It would probably also require changing the interior animations, as well as most transmission defs.

Here is an example for Stralis from 2003 Stralis AT/AD service manual:

For 12-speed automatic without intarder
retarder: 2
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0, 1, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0, 1, 1)

For 16-speed manual without intarder
retarder: 2
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0, 0.5, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0, 1.0, 0)

For 12-speed automatic with intarder
retarder: 6
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.00, 0.5, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.00, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.50, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.75, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (1.00, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (1.00, 1.0, 1)

And for 16-speed manual with intarder
retarder: 6
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.0, 0.5, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.2, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.4, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.6, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (0.8, 1.0, 0)
auxiliary_brakes[]: (1.0, 1.0, 0)

@Tuggert +1 for the 2009 FH with D13, it's something I've been asking for a very long time. Hopefully when/if the Volvos get reworked, we'll get a non-FH16 2009 variant... although I do wonder if for some reason that's all Volvo consented to license.

I am new in this forum since friday.
I want to ask if it is better to post any ideas here or is it better to create new topics?
I have started a new topic concerning ideas for random events.
But what if i have another idea for random events? Should i post it in the same topic or sould i post it here?
How is it easier for the research team and certain departments?

Official support for rigid trucks with proper working cargo, no "dummy trailers", as these are quite common in many parts of the world and I drove an 1st Gen Volvo FM12 in real life and find that truck a pleasure to use for short distances or low tonnage. Also a tandem would be nice.

An update to the graphics of the current gen. Scania R and S trip computer as they received some fancy menus and backgrouds.

An option to display a rear view or the right side maneuvering mirror view thru the Nav unit of the truck like in the case of real trucks.

Adding an rain sensor and light sensor is also something relative easy to implement.

It would be nice if you add a rest time of your choice ... 2-4-6-8 hours ...

even the TGX from 2013 has them, i be every truck we got since 2012 has them installed
My TGX from 2014 dont have automatic wipers or light so no not every truck has Them, it’s a optional item.

Double Post Merged


Minimum rest time is 9 hours by law in Europe so that not happen unless you would like to split rest With 3 hours then 9 for a regular rest, but that of no Benefit in the game. If they should do something they should make it so that Maximum driving time is 9 hours and not 11 🙄 and 11 rest that would bring it closer to reality and still keep i simple for the “arcade” users.

I would like to hear nationally personalized sounds for emergency vehicles. :) Also local radio channels - radio channels that changes depending on which country you're currently driving in.
