!!!This mod is intended for use with hard economy mods!!!
1. To increase realism in your trucking simulator.
2. To give more truck purchasing options as you are getting started.
3. To make some of the less popular trucks into a more viable option.
4. To make it easier to expand a fleet later in the game, especially when using a hard economy.
5. To keep it as fair and balanced as possible. Its not a "cheat-mod", you will not be getting tractors for £1000!
Used truck pricing has been researched and will reflect real values as fairly as possible.
In addition, lower prices will be offset by other factors.
What the mod does! So far.
What you get when you buy used:
Out of production trucks are available more cheaply.
Truck names have been changed to reflect their pre-owned status.
Used trucks will not have zero miles on the odometer.
Mileages now range from 100,000 to ???,??? (upwards) depending on age and use,
and will contribute to condition factors (outlined below)
Condition! The used trucks will be available for less initial outlay, but this will be balanced by
the fact that some will have high mileages when purchased and will range from reasonable
to very poor condition. Some will be well maintained, but some may need a trip to the
repair shop to freshen them up. Condition is reflected in the purchase price of the vehicle.
Maintenance! Be aware older trucks may have a lower price tag, but they will cost more to run.
I have balanced the pricing by changing the prices of the components.
Older engines and transmissions are invariably more expensive to maintain. (30-50% increase currently).
Chassis/Body will be less expensive, to reflect availability of parts and ease of maintenance on older trucks.
Wheel and tyre costs will remain about the same (costs of tyre wear and
balancing/tracking is constant in new and old vehicles).
Volvo FH16. As it is one of the more desirable used trucks (with the 540hp engine, its a great starter truck)
I have decided to make it at the top end of the used truck scale. It is generally considered to
be a well maintained, low mileage example, like you would find "nearly new" at a Volvo Used Trucks Centre.
DAF XF EURO 5 is complete. A very popular used truck especially in the UK.
It doesn't retain its value quite as well as its premium competitors so is available somewhat cheaper.
Ages well. Average maintenance costs, low powered versions can be a bargain.
Conditions are reasonable. Some extra options are available.
This EURO 5 version is now available at any level.
The Actros MP3 is a good quality truck and is generally very reliable but as it went
out of production in 2011 even the newest versions are around five years old.
Premium versions are in good condition but budget options might have seen more wear.
Mercedes maintenance is higher than average.
The Magnum is Renaults venerable big truck. Available in the same form from 1990 to 2013
the Magnum has been criticised for not matching up to the quailty of other trucks, yet is lauded
for its longevity and ease of maintenance. It has strong engines and is cheap to run.
It's the cheapest vehicle available in UsedTrucks and its base engine more powerful than competitors.
