As mentioned in a previous post, there is a new liftable axles feature. Also like in the ATS patch a locking differential feature is available. “This feature allows you to lock/unlock the differentials on the truck’s wheels, to avoid wheelspin. It becomes quite handy in situations where you’re hauling some really heavy cargo on an uneven road or unstable ground. ” Although I don’t quite remember encountering these types of situations in ETS2 very often..
The hotkey for this feature is V and can be enabled at lower speeds.
Another important thing in the patch are police cars which will work just like in ATS. Their lights will be enabled when you break the law! There are also custom police car models and skins for each country.
Next, here is a full list of features of the new Euro Truck Simulator 2 patch version 1.27:
- Country Specific Police Cars AI
- Trailer Liftable Axles
- Differential Lock
- Adaptive transmission modes (power, normal, eco)
- Improved engine simulation model (friction, braking, consumption)
- Transmission input shaft simulation (double clutch)
- Volvo with Allison gearbox can shift up over 4 gear.
- Air pressure simulation improved (pressure buildup, cut-off sound, application pressure)
- Coin sound tweaked.
- FOV range increased to 40-120 degrees in adjuster.
- Engine brakes set to 3 positions (as most current truck have). For one-key-hold control you can still use full strength.

- g_force_economy_reset flag is disabled after economy reset.
- Single “overrides” (forced default) rule can be used instead of defaults-suitable rule pair across linked accessories.
- All pressure unit set consistently to bars (data, animation, dashboard ui).
- Nominal air_tank_pressure value added to chassis data.
- Changed interior animations: all air, oil and brake pressure (gauges, indicators)
- New interior animation: trailer axle lift (indicator), differential lock (button, indicator)
- New engine data: resistance_torque (measured at 2000rpm)
- Coin sound made moddable in the same way as other sounds (through ogg file).
