Compatibility update for ATS 1.32.4


- Pack provides improvements to common sounds in the game, making them feel more immersive and real.
- The goal of the mod is to make the game's sounds feel like real life!
- The mod is frequently updated to bring more real sounds into the game.


* ETS2 1.32.3 + ATS 1.32.4. No errors in game log. Must have high priority in Mod Manager.
* Compatible with all trucks, including truck mods.
* 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 rain sound mods such as Realistic Weather Sound 1.7.7 (provides realistic thunder + rain sounds). Both can be enabled at the same time. Check the load order image included for more details.
* If using any of Grimes' seasonal mods, place the seasonal mod with higher priority than the Sound Fixes Pack for a more accurate seasonal experience.
* If using winter mods, please enable Frosty Winter Weather Sound addon from Options folder of Sound Fixes Pack for winter sounds.
* Traffic density/behavior mods (in lower priority in Mod Manager) can enable realistic sound ranges plugin from Sound Fixes Pack by inserting this line into def/traffic_data.sii: @include "traffic_data_update.sui"

Minimum requirements

Requires higher priority in Mod Manager than:
- any map mods (e.g. ProMods, RusMap, etc.)
- any AI traffic mods (e.g. Jazzycat's traffic packs)
- any AI traffic density/behavior mods (e.g. those listed in section below)!

Feature list

## 1. Tire / Tyre sounds

* Heavier gravel sounds on dirt/gravel roads.

## 2. Suspension sounds

* Light and medium impacts to suspension can trigger cabin squeaking and movement sounds of the cabin.

* Quieter volume of PrePass weigh station signals in American Truck Simulator.
* Improved UI sound effects.

## 4. Fuel / Gas station sounds

* Retro/historic ding sound for while the fuel is pumping (circa 1960s to 1970s). The number of dings can help give you an idea on how much you refueled.
* Real fuel pump, fuel lid, door close, seat belt click and key insertion sound effects for after refueling to a full tank.

## 5. Interior sounds

* Real stick/switch/button sounds for: parking brake, hazard light, wiper stick, light switch and blinker / indicator / turn signal.

* You can hear the slight sound of vehicles overtaking you or passing by you in the oncoming lane.

## 8. Mover sounds

* Louder volume and reworked audio for a vast amount of moving objects including biplanes, trains (included train horns) etc.
* Enabled sound for a vast amount of movers that don't originally come with sound (e.g. F22 jet fighters, ocean waves, tugboats, hot air balloons, you name it!).

## 9. Location based ambience

* Prefab (i.e. company and delivery point) soundscape enhanced for American Truck Simulator (includes both daytime and nighttime ambience such as cicadas and crickets).
* Suitable volumes and sounds of environmental ambience for various map mods.
* Some suitable sounds included for various companies and delivery points.

A video demonstration could be useful.
This mod does sound very interesting though. ;)

I'm trying to migrate my old save over to ProMods that was using this sound pack (v 11.3). Since there is a pro-mods version and non-promods version of the sound mod, I'm getting a crash when trying to use the promods version as opposed to the other as before.

I know that the sound mod and my trailer mods are compatible with pro mods because I started a new profile and all mods worked fine with no crash.

Is there a way to edit my save information to accept the promods version of the sound pack so I can avoid starting all over?

What do you mean by "migrate" your "old save over to ProMods"? Were you using a different map in your old save and now tried to change to ProMods with that same profile?

I am trying to add promods to a save that did not have pro-mods before, but that save DOES have this sound pack; and since there is a promods version and a non-promods version, it's dependent on the non-promods version.

However, I would assume that by installing promods, I would need to change the sound pack over to the Promods version. But if I do this, the game crashes, as the save is still expecting the non-promods version of the sound pack to be installed.

I started a new save with all my mods including Promods, using the Promods version of this sound pack to test compatibility and it runs.

So I am asking if there is a way to edit my save file so that it "expects" the pro-mods version of the sound pack instead of the non-promods version.

Can you post your game log here after you try using the Sound Fixes Pack with ProMods in your old profile?

Otherwise I'd have no clue what is causing the crash.

Hi , this may be a stupid question but there is like a loud beeping sound that happens sometimes, could you explain what that is?

It's supposed to be an engine warning when you have too much damage but I think it's been beeping on a few false positives (when your trailer is damaged but no damage to the engine), so I'll be discontinuing that feature in the next version.
