This mod will add a number of new transmissions as well as include reconfigured versions on the original transmissions that SCS has on trucks. Transmissions for the following trucks are included: Mercedes-Benz, Scania and Volvo.

I do apologize some users that haves MAN, Iveco, DAF or Renault as their favourite truck and that this mod doesn't include any changes to their transmissions.

I made this mod for M-B, Volvo and Scania as they seem to be the 3 most favorite truck brands in the game, and the rest of the trucks will have more options in future versions. My plan is to first make the transmissions compatible with the base game trucks and then for truck mods.

And no, I will NOT make a transmission mod, which will give you 400km/h or above top speed, because that would be extremely ridiculous and pointless, since the thing in this mod is realism.

For the differential and gear ratios, I have used manufacturer-specific PDF sheets, that I have found from the Internet.

The mod will include the following transmissions;

Mercedes-Benz (works on both Actros trucks):

- PowerShift G330-12 (12-speed, with and without retarder)
- PowerShift G280/G281-12 (in-game default, slight changes made to the gear ratios)
- PowerShift G280-16 (16-speed, with and without retarder)

Image

Scania (works on both R-series trucks):

- Opticruise GR875 (8-speed, with and without retarder)
- Opticruise GRSO925 (in-game default, reconfigured gear ratios)
- Opticruise GRS905 (14-speed, with and without retarder)
- Opticruise GRSO905 (14-speed, with and without retarder)

Image

Volvo (works on both FH-series trucks):

- VTO2814B (14-speed, with and without retarder)
- i-Shift ATO3512D (in-game default, reconfigured reverse gear ratios)

Image

Changelog v1.2:

- Added MAN TGX transmissions
- Merged all the files into a single file

Changelog v1.4:

- Added DAF XF transmissions
- Added PowerShift G211-12 for both Mercedes trucks

Changelog v1.6:

- Reconfigured and added an Optidrive transmission for both Renault trucks
- Re-configured differential ratio on Actros MP4 and MAN TGX


Most of the transmissions will have 4 reverse gears, just like their real life counterparts. Some of them has really high speed in reverse, but who would go 80km/h backwards?

On the Scania transmissions, when you hit the first gear, you will see the letter "C", which means it has crawler gear for steep hill starts or muddy grounds, and two of the boxes will have gears 1L to 6H on manual versions and the original 1-12 for automatic transmissions. This one does not apply to the Opticruise GRSO925 transmission, because it's either hydraulic manual (meaning, that you only have to press clutch if you stop or change gears from D to R) or fully automated.

The engine revolutions are between 900-1200 RPM at 85 km/h speed, depending on truck and gearbox. This will give you very low total fuel consumption of your trips, even they're long.

So, those transmissions have longer ratios or shorter ones than default?
Peterson logistics - We think, you pay, it's that simple.

Well, only few gears will have slightly shorter or longer ratios on Scania and Mercedes transmissions.

The Volvo i-Shift transmission was untouched, since SCS had already put the correct gear ratios in it. Only change is slightly smaller differential ratio (2.84 instead of 3.08), which will give you slightly lower engine revs when you are cruising down the roads at the speed you have set.

Also, the previous Google Drive download link was closed somehow, so i fixed it, and should be working ;)

Time to announce an update.

MAN

- Reconfigured the original ZF transmission
- Added a 16-speed ZF transmission
- All transmissions are now included in a single mod file

Image

For those, who are using the MAN TGX Reworked by MADster, these transmissions should work on that truck. I also did forgot to add manifests to the mod, and it will be fixed for the next update.

And a big thank you to CrazyTrucker for testing these transmisions.

Download links are on the first post

And, this mod is now available at the Steam Workshop, for those who wants to use the non-Workshop version, the new version is uploaded to the Google Drive folder that is linked in the first post.

Enjoy, and happy trucking!

Mod update announcement :)

This time, I added couple of new transmissions and added support for ohaha's Volvo FH2013 mod. My mod will receive a small compaatibility update, once ohaha has updates his Volvo FH Classic for ETS2 v1.24

Changelog v2.2:
- AT2512C for Renault trucks
- i-Shift AT2512C for Volvo trucks
- 12 AS 3140 TO for Iveco Stralis

And, as in the previous version, Iveco Hi-Way is not included, as its causing an unknown crash in every Iveco Truck dealer and it's not leaving any traces to the game log, so I will investigate that and definitely let you know, when it's working properly.

And, as usual, you can download this mod from Google Drive or from the Steam Workshop.
