Sound Fixes Pack v 14.2.1

Date 2016-04-19 09:11


NOTE: I’m sorry for updating the mod twice in one week. But there was some demand for compatibility with the Coast to Coast and the Mexuscan map. You asked for it, so here it is!

Pack provides improvements to common sounds in the game, making the sounds feel more immersive and real.

* Refined and cleaned quality of AI traffic truck and bus sounds.

* Added compatibility for more map mods and realistic field of view mod for ATS.
Due to this change, the mod is split into a base file and a def file for ATS.
The def file can now be customized to your profile setup (must take highest priority in Mod Manager!)

1. Tires: enhanced asphalt tire sounds on normal roads and gravel sounds on dirt roads
2. Suspension: enhanced suspension sounds to include sounds of cabin squeaking, key swinging and movement of the cabin.
3. “Late music”: replaced with Nokia phone ringtone sound (volume of this sound depends on Music volume in Audio settings in-game).
4. “Bing bong” chime for train loading screen sound and ferry loading screen sound.
5. Reworked garage door sound and corrected its volume to a lower level.
6. Reduced volume of adviser message sound.
7. Reduced volume of yawn slightly for fatigue simulation.
8. Classic/historic ding sound for while the fuel is pumping (circa 1960s to 1970s). The number of dings give you an idea on how much you refueled.
9. Real fuel pump, fuel lid sounds, door close, seat belt click and key insertion sound effect for after refueling to a full tank.
10. Mix of stock amplified gear grinding sounds and new gear grinding sounds. Can be heard when you have damaged the transmission and/or gearbox.
11. Real stick/switch/button sounds for: parking brake, hazard light, blinker / indicator / turn signal, light switch.
12. Retarder sound changed to real retarder sound.
13. Lift axle sound now includes button press sound effect in interior.
14. Real sound effect for trailer coupling. Also includes the sound of the trailer brakes connecting straight after the fifth wheel coupling.
15. Driver Alert Support system sound installed on all trucks (ETS2 exclusive feature).
16. AI traffic vehicles given new horn sounds. Depending on the patience of the driver, a short or long honk may be used.
17. AI traffic trucks/buses given more variations of sounds (turbo, engines, gear changes, engine brakes).
18. Motorcycles from Jazzycat’s AI traffic pack given proper motorcycle engine sounds.
19. Motorcycles will rev engine instead of using car horn when blocked.
20. You can hear the slight sound of vehicles overtaking you or passing by you in the oncoming lane.
21. Wind will sound slightly faster from cabin when you drive at a high speed.
22. Pattering of rain on windshield audible inside the truck during heavy rain.
23. Prefab (e.g. company and delivery points) soundscape in American Truck Simulator enhanced (ATS exclusive feature).
24. Louder volume and reworked audio for biplanes, trains (included train horn), helicopters, cable cars and Boeing planes.

Compatible for and tested on ETS2 version 1.23.2 + ATS version 1.1.1.
Forwards compatible with ATS version 1.2.
No errors in game log.
Fully stable mod.

Compatible with all trucks including mod trucks.
Does not replace individual truck sounds, so can be used with an unlimited amount of truck sound mods of your choice.

Compatible with all maps.

Supports compatibility with Realistic Weather Sound 1.7.5 (provides realistic thunder and exterior rain sounds).
Both mods can be enabled at the same time. Check load order image for more details.

Wind and tire noise too loud? No problem. You can configure its volume using these developer commands. Syntax is as follows:

s_air_noise [value from 0.0 to 1.0] (default is 1)
s_wheel_noise [value from 0.0 to 1.0] (default is 1)

– SCS Software for base sounds
– Drive Safely for pitch, reverberation and sound edits, some sound samples and compiling mod
– antonvezdehod, Ludmilla and Katixa/Irreo for some tire sounds
– Balamut for some key swing and light suspension sounds
– AlexeyP for some trailer coupling and fuel pump sounds
– Stewen for some improved AI truck sounds
– nIGhT-SoN for raindrop definitions

In most cases, mod requires highest priority in Mod Manager, above map mods, environmental mods and AI traffic mods. Otherwise correct operation of pack not guaranteed.
Check the loading order image for more details.

  1. Well that’s confusing. -_-

    • Drive Safely

      Should be less confusing now. I added more instructions in the file. You can re-download from the Google Drive link.

    I think that your mod is great,but with this new realistic mirror you are completely wrong,I am talking this like real truck driver not player,in your mirrors you can t see trailer at all,this is not realistic,look Peterbilt 389 mod this is like should be.

      Thanks for feedback. FOV mod was just removed. You can re-download from the Google Drive link.

    Most map users are running MHAPro/Coast to Coast/Mexican. So what def file should we install? All? FOV mod should not be in your sound mod. All your going to do is piss off some people. That being said, fantastic sound mod,,the best.

    • Drive Safely

      Thanks for feedback. FOV mod was just removed and I made the instructions more user friendly. You can re-download from the Google Drive link.

    Confusing ass pack man. So many files won’t even open (e.g. text files and pics) Just put one file for ATS in this download dude. If you want your other mods to get downloaded, just make separate ones. Text files would be helpful if they actually had any information on them. With that being said, this is the first version of this mod that actually had any files in it at all when I downloaded it. Every other time I have downloaded this pack, the file was empty.

      You can open text files with Notepad. If you can’t open them you probably haven’t extracted the mod. Use 7-zip File Manager to extract to make things easier (it is also a free program).

    This mod is working. At least I think it is. The “open window” option is missing from this latest update 14.2.1. I’m running the open window mod from 14.2. I don’t think it is working. I’ve checked the stacking order in mod manager—def top of the list, then open window, and then the default mirror fixes pack.


    • Drive Safely

      Thanks for the feedback. It’s back for ATS now but it’s now in the def file configuration instead of the Options folder. You can re-download the pack from the Google Drive link.

      • Leigh

        Thank you! Looking forward to trying the update.

        This is a “must have” mod in my opinion. :)

      • Leigh

        Yep! That was the fix for open window.

        This mod is brilliant. I don’t know how you do your magic but you do it well. I heard the blade noise from the giant wind turbines for the first time. Totally immersive when wearing Bose cans.

  6. Meh

    Does this still silence the gear grinding when unsuccessfully floating gears?

    • Drive Safely

      It’s not supposed to. If it does silence it and there’s no errors in your game log, it’s most likely a bug by SCS that you should report.

  7. Meh

    Found that earlier versions did it. Without mod I can hear the grinding. But I’ll test this one out on a fresh profile and see what happens.

    • Drive Safely

      Let me know if it doesn’t work, cause that would definitely be a bug if it doesn’t work.

  8. Meh

    So fresh profile, slowly added my mods back in and it worked!!

    Every thing seems ok, as above its missing the open window add-on.
    But overall I’m glad it’s working again. I missed this mod, theres a couple alternatives but for anyone wondering Drive Safely’s is the best out there.

    Thanks again for all your work!

    • Drive Safely

      Wow. Glad to hear the gear grinding worked!

      About the open truck window addon, that’s included in the def file folder now (no longer in the Options folder). I updated the Google Drive download link to include that.

    Sooooo mirror FOV is now a sound????
    Am I missing something here????
    Why is there mirror FOV options in a sound MOD??? Anyone?

    • Drive Safely

      The same reason why there are map zoom fixes for map mods. Anyway the mirror FOV is no longer in there. Download links were updated. Thanks for understanding.

  10. FOIS

    If someone can make just one MOD that will change this game completely for me then I want to hear the truck pushing the engine on downhills instead of it just going completely silent like it’s in nuetral. If possible can this be made as a standalone MOD please.
