After an amazing discovery, the reefer / refrigerated trailer sounds have been updated to include a highly requested change:
By extending the functionality of the wind sounds, the reefer trailer sound can now play while driving.
It’s still a workaround since it’s not a standard feature in the game yet, but until then we can pioneer the sound this way!
Previous trailer mods that activate the reefer sounds from this pack in 1.41 are forwards compatible with this update.
This feature is optional and requires activation by a reefer sound addon or trailer mod to enable the sound.
Important information to take note from this new change:
– This relies on the wind sound to “carry” the reefer sound once you drive, so other wind sound mods won’t be compatible.
– “Noise of the flowing air” must be activated in the Audio settings.
– Due to the way the wind sounds are optimized in game, it cannot sustain the reefer sound at 0 km/h for long.
– The reefer sounds should kick back in once you set off, however.
– The Trailer Noise slider controls the sound volume of the reefer startup noise and sound loop of a new cycle.
– The Truck Noise slider controls the sound volume of the reefer sound loop when driving.
– It is recommended to have both sliders at the same volume (50%) for consistency.
– If you want to take a break and keep the reefer idling such as when you are at a truck stop:
Simply disconnect and reconnect the trailer to reactivate the cycle.
This will allow you to hear the reefer when you are idle or parked. It can be a relaxing white noise this way.
Regarding what the refrigerated trailer sound can be confirmed to work with:
– Freight Market: Confirmed to work.
– External Contracts: Confirmed to work.
– Quick Jobs: Can work, but you need to disconnect and reconnect the trailer to start the cycle.
– Ownable Trailers: Not applicable.
– Pack provides essential improvements to common sounds in the game for increased immersion.
– For over 5 years, this mod has proven to be a welcome addition for both players wanting realism and casual players.
– The mod receives regular updates to cover more sounds to add immersion. Thus the Steam Workshop version is highly recommended for quicker updates.
