FS22 Enhanced Vehicle v0.9.9.3
!!! This mod is still in development. New versions may be released in short intervals !!!
I recommend to open the configuration menu once after each new mod version via “Ctrl + Numpad /” and reset to default settings.
What’s new in version 0.9.x?
First of all: Welcome to FS22. The mod functions from the FS19 version have all been taken over – except for the shuttle shift. That feature has been removed, as the game now supports this out of the box.
NEW feature: a track assistant (“GPS light”) and a simple “hold direction” mode (“snap to direction”).
How does the Track Assistant work?
Drive to the field with your vehicle and an attachment and turn on the guide lines with RShift+Home.
Position your vehicle parallel to the edge of the field.
Turn on the track assistant with RCtrl + Numpad 1. A bunch of lines will appear representing the tracks.
Above the speedometer you can see the current track number your vehicle is in, and next to it a number between -5 to +5. This number indicates how many tracks your vehicle will turn when you press the “turn” button. Example: You are in track #5 and press “turn” with a value of +1 -> your vehicle will enter track #6. Example 2: You are in track #10 and press “turn around” with a value of -3 -> your vehicle will sort into track #7.
Press RCtrl + End to automatically keep the car in the current track. You don’t need to steer now – just accelerate/brake or turn on cruise control.
At the end of the field, the vehicle can turn around if you press RCtrl + Home. Note: The vehicle simply tries to reach the new track. It is not very intelligent about it. It does not turn in several moves or something like that. Just try it out and see how it works.
When you steer, track keeping is immediately disabled. With RCtrl + End you turn it back on.
If you changed the attachment or want to realign tracks -> RCtrl + Numpad 2.
What does EnhancedVehicle do?
This mod adds a track assistant, differential locks, drive modes (all-wheel, RWD/FWD) and direct control of front/rear hydraulics and equipment to (motorized) vehicles. Additionally, the HUD gets a bit of an upgrade with a more detailed damage indicator, fuel tank level, fuel consumption, engine RPM and temperature, and weight/total weight.

Q: Where is the configuration file?
A: in [..]\Documents\My Games\FarmingSimulator2022\modSettings\FS22_EnhancedVehicle\FS22_EnhancedVehicle_v1.xml
Q: There seems to be something wrong with 2WD (=not all-wheel drive mode).
A: Quite possible. The mod is bound to the game engine. The sometimes does what it wants and taking into account all parameters such as tire size, friction, payload, etc., the vehicle can sometimes make strange jumps or the like. Currently, however, the mod should have this reasonably under control. The idea of the function is also rather all-wheel+differential locks active, so you can reasonably drive up the shit driving silo.
Q: I don’t see any engine temperature or fuel consumption!
A: Then you are most likely a participant in a multiplayer game and are not the host. Due to game engine limitations, the mod cannot determine and display the values.
Q: The damage for device xyz is always 0%
A: Then the device doesn’t support a damage model and the mod can’t display anything but 0%.
