All basic calculations
and Values where taken from Germany and are in €
No major changes in XP System or anything else- pure Economy

Load in high Load Order, somewhere on Top of any other Mod

This is the Evolution from what i learned about the standard SCS Economy,
and the changes I made to it
with my first Economy Mod realEco

This Mod is created for maximum realistic simulation, in the restrains that the Game allows.

I want to give credit to Kablowsky, allot what he created in his discontinued Economy Mod,
helped me in my learning process​

Keep in mind you have to start somewhere with your career, and the beginning​

will be hard. You will have low income and every mistake can cost you more then a few €​

Economy Evolution(DOWNELOAD)​

Support for:
This includes Tolls, Ferry Connections and Cargo
they are hard coded into the Map and I can't adjust the Price!!

Never forget keep trucking and good Luck​

Be Smart- think ahead


You need to complete 26 quick Jobs before the Bank will consider you for your first Loan. For them you are a nobody that just got his drivers license, so you need to gain respect and experience. At this time, you will be able to take up to 250.000EUR in Loans. When you reach Level 26, you will be able to take up to 1.250.000EUR.

Be sure to have spare Money before hiring
Be sure to have spare Money before hiring!
You never know what new drivers will archive, like you they need to learn there way around. So it could be they lose Money or gain Money, its all about learning. Manage your drivers Skills, they need at least long distance to be us-full.
Manage them exactly as you managed your own skills, smartly!

Truck Wear, Tear and Damage
  • reworked Damage parameters
  • re balanced wear and tear
  • added Wear and Tear to Police Fines(still in Testing, needs feedbag)
  1. Under 40% Damage= nothing happens
  2. Over 40% Damage but not reached 80% Damage= Warning Issued
  3. Over 80% Damage= fine Issued(see Police fines)

  • System implemented. This System works by evaluating your driving behavior and applying a discount factor in "Repair Costs" when repairing in the Shops
  • Getting fined, damaging the Cargo, driving recklessly will lead to negative "points", reducing the discount
  • Carefull driving, like a proffesional Truck Operator will be rewarded by increasing the discount
  • Be aware you sign your Insurance Contract when you purchase your Truck. So if you purchased your truck before installing this Mod, the contract rules for this truck remain intact. To use the new Values, you need to buy a new truck

Police Fines

Some questions answered: Do other Maps work with this that you don't have under supported Maps?

General answer yes. Long answer maybe because I didn't adjust the Prices in other Maps. So it could be that you get way more money for a Transport, or Ferry Prices and other Prices are to high. This decision was made to insure the future of this Economy Mod. A few explanations:
Southern Region as example was not tested and added by me, because at the moment its not known if the Author returns. The same thing with the great Steppe. Then Mods that are always in a state of not playing nice with others, are still in early development or not updated in some time- where not tested or added, because its allot of work for a unsecured future. I created an Addon for some Maps like Project Balkans, Southern Region, The great Steppe and Project Turkey.
