  1. the double trailer definitions have defined countries in which they are allowed to be spawned in by the job generator (Denmark, Norway, Sweden) Also the cargo terminal prefabs all have now specified max trailer lenght defined in the definition files. So to make this happen: You'd need to remove the lenght limit lines from the company prefabs, Remove the country limits from the double trailer definitions.. Minor edits to couple files found in def archive, pack it up into a mod and then have it loaded by the MP launcher as it does with wintermod or skoda. I'd like to see it for sake of challenge in the old companies with less space such as Trameri etc.
  2. Normal loads ranging 18-35 tons best i'v got on R450 has been sub 28l/100km.. average over time of about 5000km, 13 litre engine vs 16 litre, i can see something in there..
  3. What i been driving in singleplayer meanwhile waiting for ets2MP to be supported.. R420, 12 speed gearbox with fitting rear end for economical cruising, no retarder.
  4. Indeed.. When i drove the 12 speed Scania, I hardly ever used low range spliter, pretty much split the last gear because it pushed all the way from 60-80kph, full jump from 10 to 12 would've required me to run the engine higher to about 1800revs so that jump a full gear ahad to 12 would actually be sensible and the engine could pull through. The split gears are there just to optimize your engine revs at any speed. or when you have seriously heavy load and the engine cant keep up if you shift full gears up. I usually took off in 2L and then skipped straight into 3H, 4H 5H, 6L 6H.
  5. For adaptive transmission, you need either pedal or a analogue button, no binary on off. Because throttle position determines the transmission behaviour
  6. Never seen allison transmission in a truck. Thats how common it is. All brands have their own automatics which are far better. Allison is more of a bus transmission
  7. Scania R440, Found a nice trailer to match it.
  8. ^ 80% of ETS2MP in nutshell. I dont understand why you need to lift the rear up so that you'll tip it over easier.
  9. In my opinion, None of the 8x4 chassis heavy haulers can be classed J-spec at all. No matter what. They are built to with single purpose in mind.
  10. What i know from watching from the sidelines of updating fleets in companies: Scania and Volvo offer quite free hands to the customer of what sort of truck they need and want. Atleast in Nordic countries Scania and Volvo quite far builds-to-order and customize it how customer wants it. You tick boxes and have money, They fit it. With any chassis lenghts, any axlebases, any axle config, whatever cab you want. I dont know how something like Iveco or Renault builds. Do they push out standard trucks out and offer little custom orders or something. Cannot speak for them. I just know Scania and Volvo gives almost free hands to customer what he wants in it. Sisu takes it up a notch, they build everything according to customer's needs. Any frame lenght, any axle configuration, 10x4 with 3 out of 5 axles liftable? no problem. Mad scientists that have even successfully mated an ancient dumb Eaton Fuller transmission into a Mercedes engine so that the engine knows whats happening even.
  11. Many cannot comprehend how a simple semi trailer works with its turns or reversing it. This is going to be even more difficult for them. Or the fact that the trailer wont be same width than the truck anymore.. Outcome will be hilarious to watch from the side.
  12. Dont upload directly to the forum, use some external image host such as imgur.com or steam, just copy the link that ends into .jpg, .png or such and paste it here, if it shows up as a picture shortly after, it should work. The forum still assumes we living in age of dial up and images are bad for your health
  13. Console command 'warp' sets scale of simulation (everything, traffic, speedsbetc. Basically control game speed.) 1.0 is default, any higher than 1.0 speeda it up, less slows it dowb, for "realistic simulation speed, 0.8 os where trucks feel like trucks and not racing cars in terms of acceleration and speed. Time however as entity in SCS games is handled bit strange, it goes faster or slower depending on what you are doing, your location wether your in city or highway matters. If i remember right: sitting in city doing nothing, the time is slowest, meanwhile on the road going 90kmh it goes faster.
