How to improve semi truck speed and acceleration when pulling a trailer?
Im having a mod that add many trucking missions, but the semi trucks in this game is not so fun to drive with a trailer.
Im not interested in realistic speed and performance, I'm would love to get higher speed, better acceleration and momentum going uphill.
I have spent some time reading up on settings in handling.meta, and I have used 5-6 hours playing around with the settings, but I have not achieved anything significant.
So I hope some of you can share some of your experience and thoughts on what settings that can improve performance for semi trucks with trailer.
Some settings I have been testing:
I guess there is some combination of settings I have not discovered yet.
Ok after more hours of testing I have come to to a kind of working solution, its not perfect but its working and is ok.
It all came down to tweaking this 3 settings like many mods already have done:
fInitialDragCoeff, fInitialDriveForce and InitialDriveMaxFlatVel.
Hauler: fInitialDragCoeff 10, fInitialDriveForce 0.18, InitialDriveMaxFlatVel 110
Phantom: fInitialDragCoeff 10, fInitialDriveForce 0.20, InitialDriveMaxFlatVel 105
Packer: fInitialDragCoeff 7, fInitialDriveForce 0.27, InitialDriveMaxFlatVel 122
Now they all perform better than before and hauler is weakest, Phantom in the middle and Packer is the best, and this is a better match in price for them in the mod I use
