T-Series Realistic Ranged Gearboxes 1.1

some realistic transmissions for the semi truck, with rangeboxes.

  1. SebastianJDM
    This mod adds a few different transmissions to the T-Series truck, that utilize a rangebox to get the desired ratios. Now you can shift this thing without having a 12-speed H-shifter! This is made for sim truckers mostly, who use a shifter with a range paddle on it, however I have a button mapped on my steering wheel to switch between Hi/Lo range. :p

    The range status will automatically start in high, so make sure you switch it to low before driving. This mod works best if you map the range selector to a button or switch, so that you can make seamless gear changes. As of right now, there are three gearboxes available:

    10-speed (5-speed with hi/lo)
    -the cheapest and most basic, with a tall highway gear​
    12-speed (6-speed with hi/lo)
    -offers great highway cruising speeds along with closer spacing for more elevation change​
    14-speed (7-speed with hi/lo)
    -very close spacing with very short gears, really only designed with carrying very heavy loads up steep grades in mind.
    and two rangeboxes available:
    4.33
    -the standard 'box, providing enough oomph in low range, but with long enough low gears for easy maneuverability with minimal shifting​
    4.94
    -an optional shorter 'box, sacrificing some ease of driving to gain more capability while putting less strain on the engine. also good for hill starts.​

    I know 7 speeds with a rangebox is a bit unconventional, but I designed it for use with an H-shifter, most of which go up to 7 gears. Any more gears, and I would have to use a splitter, something which is pretty difficult to get working in-game (i've tried).
    To use the transmission, first you will have to go into the vehicle configuration menu, and replace the transmission to the one of them with "Rangebox" in the title. Next, replace the driveshaft with the "Rangebox driveshaft", and then you're all set to drive. You can also switch out the ratio of the range selector as a sub-part in the transmission.

    I don't know why, but for me, the transmission isn't changing ratio when switching range, so it just seems like I have 6 extremely long gears, I can record a video and post it if you create a discussion thread.

    Makes driving the T series a LOT easier with H shifter, I might be able to make a video for you, it will take a day or two to make, but should be doable. How may I contact you?

    Nice!
    Will give 5 stars if you also include a 12-speed with rangebox.
    This should be part of the base game!!

    Awesome mod.

    Also works great with my setup. I have a button on the steering wheel to change the range and another to put it in neutral. This solves the problem of having to go from 5th to 1st one gear at a time without a proper H shifter.
