Ruthless Mode 1.0
Tired of EZ Mode? Me too. After about 80% completion and 18 trucks in my garage that I never used – I grew tired of how easy the game had become. I tried a few mods out but didn’t find something that exactly fit what I was looking for – so I built my own with the help of some code used from other modders.
** This Mod should be enjoyed from a fresh, new game – playing from Michigan to Alaska and then to the brutal Russia. Back up your saves and experience the game from scratch. Enjoy the struggle. Feel satisfied with a completed mission using all of your trucks.. if you can afford them……Lastly, enjoy the immersion.***
*DISCLAIMER – there are no overt suspensions, no custom trucks, no mud tires on a highway truck, no addons that trucks shouldn’t have, no low riders, no 65″ tires on the scout 800 and no football field length winches. This is the vanilla game turned ruthless.
Here’s what I’ve come up with. It wont be for everyone:
-Better Tire Pressure from Siraij
-Realistic Gearboxes from WolFRocK
-Increased cargo weight from WolFRocK
-Winch lengths reduced 25%
-Fuel Capacities reduced 25%
-Truck Prices doubled, some were tailored to whats OP and what’s not. The idea here is to play from the start, and not go to Russia and grab the Tayga; but. it’s your game =D
-Damage Values all reduced to 20. Take your time.
-No Recovery from Lo2k
*If you decide to apply this mod to an existing game, I suggest that the recovery option be used on every truck prior. There’s an odd interaction with installing this mod and trucks that are left out on the map and spawned into for the first time (trucks spawn damaged. Doesn’t occur once you re-deploy your trucks.*
