Not every tractor has a continuously variable transmission. And even the continuously variable transmissions are not as simple in construction as the standard one in farming simulator.
– easier launch of vehicle with CVT
– reverse driving sound
– avoid overheating of clutch if a GUI is open
– launch gear can be adjusted while vehicle is in AutoHold
– bug fix blinking fuel usage (MP)
– better motor brake
– open and lockable differentials
– new settings UI
– multiple transmission configurations per vehicle
– works with FS17_moreRealistic
This script adds on the basis of the file gearboxAddonConfig.xml a gearbox to all configured tractors. Many various transmission kinds can be simulated. There are classic gearboxes with gears, one or two groups and reverse gears or groups. Shorting the response time to zero will result into a power shift transmission.
In modern tractors power shift transmissions are often combined with automatic gear shifting. Another transmission type is the continuously variable transmissions.
There are models with one or two gears like the Fendt Vario. Other models combine four automatically switched mechanical gears with a continuously variable hydrostatic drive. All of these continuously variable transmission have one thing in common. The efficiency varies quite strongly depending on the gear ratio.
