    It seems they had engine placement put into brochure :D


    Brochure mentions it has LED lights, DRL too, cornering lights, active antiroll thing, ESC, radar to stay on lane and avoid ramming vehicle ahead, engine braking options claim 620kW braking at low engine speeds with retarder and exhaust brake, any plans to include these high tech bits, which some might be really difficult to pull off? :D

    I wonder would this be enough close? It is biggest option they list, probably used more in TGX than TGS? Anyway percentage scale from capacity should get you pretty close for smaller engine sizes.

    1,462 x 940 x 747 mm (L x B x H) and with a dry weight of 1,337 kg

    That way you probably get closer than with my old data from other brand trucks :p

    I'm hyper exited of this mod for obvious reasons :D

    ETS2 has Dashboard toys which got me inspiration to make something similar to Beam, but I lack proper 3D models for it, it should be quite easy to adapt to MAN I guess, just need to be attached by beams and of course positioned, then if you find/make 3D models it might be cool addition to this, jbeam is free to use if you want?

    Update: This kind of bit was found too, interesting dimensions and weight compared to big one:
    MAN D1556 ENGINE 860 kg (without exhaust gas aftertreatment), the MAN D1556 is the most lightweight engine in its class and has one of the lowest installation volumes when compared to the competition (1414 × 807 × 1103 mm (l × w × h)).
    https://www.engines.man.eu/global/e...ral-and-special-machinery/in-focus/D1556.html

    Those pages don't work on me at all, I can see stuff from search engine only, but maybe they give out even exact engine model data too.

    If there is a model with Hydrodrive, it's fantastic!

    ESC will be there if I manage to make it work. (for some reason it causes fatal vehicle exception) The crash and roll prevention and engine braking are not going to be in the mod unless it is added to official vehicles or someone else makes it. I just don´t have enough programming skills for this yet.:confused:

    It seems like the engine can be placed differently for M and L cab.
    While searching more about the hydrodrive, I found this image.

    For now I will go with this placement for all configs. Having another engine position would require a lot of parts to have more options. Now there are two types of frames - road and offroad. Each of them would require two options for different engine placement and that would be 4 options just for one frame. And I´m not even going to talk about driveshafts.

    About the engine itself, the D26 is what I´m going for.

    Looks like D26 has max torque available 100rpm earlier than D15, but also 100rpm earlier it starts to taper down.

    Maybe you can use electric motor to mimic hydro drive?

    With disconnectable shaft and secondaryEngine that might work decently enough, or then it could be just mechanical as it probably takes part of engine torque to hydraulic pump.

    ESC is indeed tricky, not sure if brake spring or something can affect that. Those other bits are then something hopefully someday being in game, kinda hard to make happen. Active suspension mod for Pessima has some active antiroll code, but figuring that out and adapting to MAN, that is beyond most of us, I think.

    It can also be that for a brochure they do make those drawings bit of a stretch from reality, that pic of yours matches really well to pics from Mascus, imo.

    I was thinking about using electric motor with low rpm and high torque and simple lua code that will change motor direction depending on the selected gear.

    There's no download yet. It's not done yet and Neil got it from a message I've sent him.

    Maybe. Of course I want to do it, but I can't promise you anything.

    Really need the crane. This will open up new opportunities for the game.

    As you know I love this mod. I've already spent a lot of hours driving & crashing the MAN.
    A big thanks for that :oops:

    The dumper is just a mesh slap right now, but it will be properly jbeamed later.
