====

Fixed strange sound loop bug occurring in some modded trucks and modded engine sound mods.
Volumes of common sounds inside the truck now defined to have consistency across all truck mods and engine sound mods.

COMPATIBILITY
=============
Compatible for and tested on ETS2 version 1.23.3 + 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. Sound Fixes Pack must have higher priority.

At minimum, mod requires higher priority than map mods and AI traffic mods for correct operation of sounds.
If other mods are placed in higher priority than this mod, correct operation of pack not guaranteed and results may vary.
Check the loading order image for more details.

SET TIRE AND WIND VOLUME
========================
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)

  7. Hey DriveSafely, thanks for your response in your last version of this mod in the comments! Don’t worry about it, maybe SCS will update it one day. Making the file for me is not necessary.

    One of the best mods I’ve ever downloaded for ATS. Really makes the game feel more immersive. Thanks, DriveSafely!
    That being said, I’ve found 2 minor issues:
    1. The optional police siren activates right after surpassing the 60 mph mark (not 85 mph as stated inside the mod). So I had to disable it.
    2. This sound pack doesn’t play well with the Qualcomm Sounds mod ( http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=649564133 ) – no matter where I put it in the mod manager, the annoying yawn sound overrides it. I’ve tried putting it below both def and base scs, sandwiched between them, and even above them – no luck.
    If you could maybe look into these problems, I’d be forever grateful. ;)

      Ok, nevermind the yawn/qualcomm sound issue. Apparently the full game restart was needed after changing the mod load order. Problem solved.
