Responsive Steering v1.4 Mod
From the beginning in the Chevrolet CK1500, I felt something was weird with the steering.
Playing with an xbox360 pad, I couldn’t steer a little. Moving the stick slightly was not making the car slightly turning and pressing it a little much was driving it into a drift or spin. So I ended up doing spikes in my steering, giving small but strong hits to get small steering moves and constantly correcting.
And what acted on the Chevy became more obvious with bigger trucks : slight stick moves was not acting before I stayed on this position long enough and then the truck was over-acting running into drift.
So I tried a few parameters before finding the most obvious : Responsiveness.
And all of a sudden, eveything became smooth and clean.
No more lag or dead-zone effect, no more spikes needed to do slight steering adjustments, a very small stick move was translating into a very gentle truck direction adjustement. I could now place my wheels exactly where I aim on dangerous roads and drive long gentle curves at full speed keeping my finger pushing very slowly on the stick without over-reactions of the trucks. It was so much enjoyable and particulary with heavy trailers on roads where steering must be as soft as possible. It was just night and day.
So this mod corrects responsiveness of each truck and as there’s a file per truck, you can correct one or all the trucks you want. As I said I play the game with a pad and I wonder if this would suit or improve driving with a wheel. I would be interested if wheel drivers could report their experience.
In my case, I really enjoy the game at a higher level. I hope you will too.
v1.4 : added the 3 DLC trucks.
v1.3 : updated for 2020-09-07 game update (7.0).
Note : As for my other mods, this mod is not a vehicle and won’t be handled properly using the subscribe button. So instead, hit the size over the description to download the file and you will find simple and clear installation notes inside the archive.
Some of the trucks are missing visual customization options or even attachments, some DLC trucks aren’t included, and the Derry Longhorn 3194 has massive issues with the middle axle.
To combat this, I have recreated the mod using the original files, only implementing the responsiveness edit and no other changes, as well as including all DLC trucks. I have also made a “responsive_steering_1.5.zip” file that includes all relevant files (no unnecessary ones) as well as the original readme. However, I will not upload it anywhere without your permission. If you want to, I could also send it to you privately to update the mod here. Am I allowed to do either of these two?
heya, do you have a mod like this for the original mudrunner game?
