SnowRunner - Heavy Haul – The Cargo Weight Realism Tweak V1.4
MANUAL INSTALLATION ONLY
Warning! This mod increases the difficulty of the game considerably!
It is easier to get stuck in the mud and tip over, mistakes will be punishing.
Your fuel economy will suffer, and deliveries will take longer.
It will require route planning, truck and trailer choice matters more.
Some trucks won’t be able to carry cargo AND tow a trailer.
There is a logical progression from the lightest wood planks to the super heavy reinforced concrete.
But all of that makes the gameplay more tense and satisfying, so if you’re up to the challange, welcome/
At first i was planning to input realistic values, however that wouldnt work in reality of the game, without a huge rebalance of engines, suspensions, tires, trailers and cranes.
But i still wanted to make the game more difficult, especially if using tweaked/modded trucks that make it too easy.
So instead i have decided for a mix or reality and gameplay so it’s perfectly balanced, as all cargo should be.
I’ve included modified cranes that are able to lift these heavy cargos.
It’s almost mandatory to use the OFF ROAD TRAILERS by the incredible FOXCRF450RIDER.
I take no responsibility for damages if you didnt back up!!
It can be combined with other inital.pak mods as long as it doesnt use the same files (grass, particles, weather folders)
Make a backup somewhere safe of .\SnowRunner\en_us\preload\paks\client\initial.pak
Unpack my mod with winrar
Open initial.pak from your game with winrar, and then drag and drop the [media] folder from the mod you want to activate
Load the game and test
Profit in better experience!
To update, just override with new files, it’s perfectly safe.
To reverse, replace the initial.pak with your backup.
Many thanks to Tazmanyak for his incredible amount of help with testing and ideas.
