    Transmission features:
    Electric motor:

    Technically not a "transmission"
    Note: For the mod to work correctly, you must choose all(one or two) motors to the modded ones and choose the modded(in order to redirect motor information to the modded motor(s)) gauges in the parts menu
    Custom logic:
    When the vehicle speed is sufficiently high a "coastdown" throttle is compared with the throttle pedal, when the throttle pedal is lower, regenerative braking is applied. This improve the vehicle speed control with the gas pedal, similar to engine braking. When brake is used, additional regen is applied to reduce brake wear.
    When the vehicle speed is very low a tiny bit of creep throttle is applied to prevent vehicle from fully stopped, similar to DCT/SCT creep logic. Also the transition between power and regen are seamless, regen intensity will also gradually reduce according to lateral acceleration.
    Tunable parameters:
    The modded logic is tunable similar to ECU mapping IRL

    Automatic Transmission:
    Two brand new torque converter lockup logics
    Classic "1C-2C-3C-3L-4C-4L-5L-6L" logic. For vehicles with 4AT (one overdrive) lockup with low throttle and in overdrive gear (4T21), for vehicle with 6AT (more than one overdrive) lockup in overdrives and low throttle in direct drive or overdrive (4T5L21 or 4T6L21)
    Modern vehicle speed/throttle opening. The TC lockup logic is according to the vehicle speed and throttle opening, regardless of current gear, in recent modern vehicles with 6 gears or more (400T1000LM1).

    Single Clutch Transmission:
    Custom logic:
    The SCT is actually a "workaround" of the current AT physic/logic. The torque converter is converted to an empty box w/ a clutch, the clutch is fully disengaged while shifting, decouple the engine and the gearbox. A custom throttle logic is added to control the rev-match during the shift, and the clutch engagement RPM is based on the "Throttle-Based Torque Converter Lockup Logic"(my previous mod), Clutch spring is also tuned to make a manual/sequential "backlash" feeling.
    Idle Creep:
    When the vehicle is stopped, transmission is in gear and brake is released, the clutch is engaged a little bit to make the vehicle creep forward without throttle, just like a conventional slushbox. Hill hold is also implemented via brake when rolling backward.
    Throttle adjustment during shifts:
    When upshifting, a "coasting" throttle is applied. The amount of throttle is between idling and lowest downshift RPM, this is to prevent blip the throttle during upshifts. When downshifting, throttle is applied to rev-match.
    Clutch engagement RPM based on throttle value, for initial acceleration.

    Dual Clutch Transmission:
    Tuned TCU logic(more information):
    Significantly lowered initial upshifting RPM.
    Engine braking at very low speeds in D, S or M mode, no RPM oscillation when starting in 2nd or 3rd gear.
    Responsive downshifting at very low RPM.
    Idle creep:
    When the vehicle is stopped, transmission is in gear and brake is released, the clutch is engaged a little bit to make the vehicle creep forward without throttle. Works with crawler mode.
    Adjustable clutch time range:
    Now you can define the max clutch time via the "dctClutchMaxTime", not always ten times the "dctClutchTime".

    Shifter Modes:
    Winter mode:
    Some vehicles with PRND21 shift pattern, the "2" gear is always in 2nd gear instead of shifting between 1st and 2nd, others may have a separate winter mode (W). In BeamNG, the shift patterns are PRNDW1 and PRND21W, respectively.
    Modern vehicles with semi-automatic modes (PRNDSM) Downshift autoshifting gearboxes in manual mode to a certain gear instead of all the way to 1st gear (M2 or M3)

    Crawler mode:
    Some transmissions have very low gear(s) to haul very heavy objects climbing steep incline or maneuvering at very low speeds. On light-duty operation, these gears can be skipped to accelerate quicker.
    BKNHCM gear selector.
    Backup, skip the crawler gears in reverse.
    Krawler, only use reverse crawler gears.
    Highway, skip the crawler gears in forward.
    Crawler, only use forward crawler gears.
    Crawler gear definition is configurable in jbeam file, since it's adjustable, it can also use as an OD-OFF gear selection.

    Tuned shiftmap:

    Upshift/downshift RPM in each transmissions are individually tuned, according to real-world transmission considerations.
    1. The higher the vehicle speed the higher the resistance and the lower the torque multiplication ratio, thus the higher the gear, the higher the low throttle shift RPM.
    2. The higher the vehicle speed, the longer the time between each shifts. To compensate the power loss during each shift, the lower gears are more sparse than the higher gear, which means the shift down RPM increases faster than the shift up RPM.

    I see you took my advice for the Wendover transmission. Tunable parameters still need sliders

    I get God-awful gas mileage when driving the Wendover V8 with this transmission, not to mention the engine kinda drones. I suggest setting the minimum lockup gear to 3 - I did that and it solved everything. Better yet, make sliders for all these options!

      I admit that the version 3.03 update was a bit rushed

    This mod is genuinely really good. If you're reading this, download this immediately.

    I have been waiting for exactly this for so long, Great Job!

    for some reason the cherrier still doesn't have the 9-speed. does any1 else have this issue?

      After double-checking the mod in both download and in-game repo I can tell the FCV 9AT is already fixed, may be re-download the mod?
  7. PowerstrokeHD

    i think the cherrier lost the 9 speed

      Weird, will investigate now

    Awesome, those gearboxes are far better than the official ones, you fixed one of the problems that has been bothering me for years in the game, thank you a lot. One little suggestion is that the gearbox's reactions feels a bit slow to shift up a lot of speeds, maybe you could try to make the agression reduction a little bit faster, but that's just a personnal opinion on the feeling of the gearbox. You can be sure that I will only use your gearboxes in the game now :)

    This is EXCELLENT, much much more realistic in real behavior. Also there's no more throttle surge when shifting at lower RPMs like the stock configs.
