1.47 news

The upcoming 1.47 game version is sounding interesting. There's even a blog post dedicated to sounds about it.

The Sound Fixes Pack already uses a scattered sound implementation for some of the ambient sounds like bird and cricket chirping in 1.46, so it's cool to hear that SCS Software plans to follow suit in the near future. :)
As usual I will adapt to the changes and modify or merge sounds where necessary. Any default ambient sounds that are satisfactory in sound volume and suitability to the location won't be touched by the Sound Fixes Pack anytime soon.

I'll also be looking forward to finding out how the directional sound equalization works in 1.47.

With this mod update, 48% of the base game AI traffic sounds are now complete ( +1%)!

I have included sounds for an unused civilian variant of the Chevrolet Impala for AI traffic in ATS. It is not counted in the % of completion, but the sounds are there in case it is ever used.
Someone could actually mod it in by adding it to the traffic storage. There's a free mod idea... ;)

Pack updated to v23.16 with the following changes:

Engine and horn sounds added to the 2006 Chevrolet Impala police car in AI traffic. [ATS edition]
- This is also applied to the unused civilian 2006 Chevrolet Impala AI traffic car in case of future use. [ATS edition]

Several air horn sound effects added to the array for the Kenworth W900 trucks in AI traffic. [ATS edition]

New sound feature announcement! :o I originally envisioned that this would be ready during 1.47, but I've luckily got this ready in time for ATS 1.46.

There's no doubt that multiplayer Special Transport with friends can be really fun, but where does that leave those who play in single-player with the Special Transport DLC?

One of the immersive aspects missing in single-player is the regular communication between the escort vehicles and the truck driver. We get a little sound for lane changes and if we're too close to the rear escort vehicle... but it doesn't feel like enough.

So that got me thinking of a way to fill that void, even if only a small step towards full immersion. A key role of the Lead Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator is to communicate of upcoming hazards in enough time for the truck driver to react to it.
Obviously there is no dialog system with any of the AI traffic drivers, but we can still have little CB radio static sound effects as a way to get the feeling of the Lead Pilot/Escort Vehicle Operator contacting us, and it's a great way to get your attention for hazards, whether it's for slowing down for speed changes or to prepare for a winding uphill road.

Now in Sound Fixes Pack for ATS, you'll have a chance of hearing a CB radio sound effect when the Lead Pilot/Escort Vehicle reduces speed ahead of you. You can also possibly hear this when going uphill and when ready to set off.
It's surprisingly decent as a way to warn you when the lead vehicle is hitting the brakes.

Let me know if you'd like this feature in Euro Truck Simulator 2!

Disclaimer: The sound mod does not require the Special Transport DLC, but in order to hear the exclusive Special Transport DLC sound feature you will need the aforementioned DLC:

Pack updated to v23.17 with the following changes:

Updated the recommended audio settings text file and its discussion topic on the Steam Workshop.
(Single-player Special Transport DLC citizens band radio sound effects have been assigned to the Interior sound volume slider).
