When you are tired and about to rest, there is no option to set
the duration of rest period. So you have to rest for 10 hours.
But what if you just want to take a nap?

With this mod it is possible to rest for a period of 4 hours.
As you can rest 3 times in a row, it is possible to rest for 4, 8 or 12 hours.

Version History:
v1.35: Initial version.
v1.35.1: New v1.35 SCS entries were omitted; they are included now.
v1.38: Currency_ratios adjusted to v1.38 values.

Download:
Rest Period for ATS v1.38
Rest Period for ATS v1.35.1

Rest Period for ETS2 v1.35 can be found here.

Happy driving and resting!

Yes, I already made one for ETS2. Only difference between the ATS and the ETS2 version, is that the ATS version has a rest period of 4 hours and the ETS version a rest period of 3 hours. It has to do with different resting regulations between USA and EU.
I will post the ETS2 version today or tomorrow.

Finally! Now I don't have to worry about falling asleep close to daylight and waking up in the evening! I really hate it since it forces me to drive in the dark.

I thought again about the resting periods ATS/ETS2, and I've decided that for the ETS2 version I will also use a 4 hour rest period. In the EU you only need a 9 hour rest period, while in the USA you need a 10 hour rest period. And then there are the exceptions. Within the current mod system it's not possible to take into account those exceptions into one mod. Also it's not possible to rest in ATS/ETS2 for a short period without the fatique reset to 0.

So, in short: the rest period in ATS/ETS2 are not that realistic. So my mod will not be realistic too. That said, the main purpose of the Rest Period mod will be to better calculate when to sleep for a short period so you don't have to drive at night.

What I usely do: In the morning I drive a few hours. Then I rest for 4 hours. After that I can easily drive till about 21:00 o'clock. That's a nice time to rest for 8 hours. Or you could choose to drive till about 19:00 o'clock and then rest for 12 hours. That way you don't have to drive in dark.
