56% of the base game AI traffic sounds are now complete ( +1%)! :)

Removal of Driver Alert Support feature

I've given it some thought - I think it's a good time for the rudimentary Driver Alert Support feature that activates on grass terrain, which is more like an Easter egg or hidden feature, to be removed in v23.38, the mod version after this one.
With the Emergency Braking System added to the game, which can easily be configured in the gameplay settings and will continue to be fine-tuned, and the recent addition of blind spot auditory alerts (see 2018 Volvo VNL) that can be on a per truck basis, the game has advanced to the point where the modern trucks can have enough alerts.

The "Disable Driver Alert Support" addon on the Steam Workshop will soon be in a phase-out mode, but will remain on the Steam Workshop until the next open beta. This is to give time for people using older versions of the Sound Fixes Pack and people on an older game version.
There will be instructions in the addon description to get a local copy of the addon in case you still need it for an older mod or game version. Then it will be eventually deleted from the Steam Workshop. I'm not a fan of having many addons to maintain.

This move should pave the way for a different feature though. More on that in the next mod update if successful. 8-)

Without further ado, here is the mod update!

Update for ownable trailer reefer sound workaround

Some of you have got the news already, but yes you can hear the reefer sound while the truck is not moving when using the ownable trailer workaround in Sound Fixes Pack v23.38!

For maximum compatibility, other road and tire noise sound mods must be disabled to get the reefer sound when the truck is not moving. The process for the ownable trailer workaround is basically the same.

I don't think there is more I can do within the game limitations with the reefer sound without overcomplicating things, but it's great to be able to make this possible for everyone with owned reefer trailers.

I hope this will inspire reefer sounds to be available in the base game!

A very special thanks to A. P. 101 Gaming for this video demonstrating how to use the ownable trailer workaround to activate and deactivate the reefer sound:






Municipal Police Traffic Pack is error free now

I'm happy to say the 1.47 dangling pointer errors caused by using both the Municipal Police Traffic Pack for ATS and the Sound Fixes Pack together are eliminated now.

I worked out an alternate solution by adding some redundancy to allow the unused traffic object definition that's being pointed by Municipal Police Traffic Pack to be read.
This should keep the Municipal Police Traffic Pack going for 1.47 even while the maker of that mod is on break. Thanks again to Utgard for telling me about the error.



Image

Pack updated to v23.38 with the following changes:

The ownable trailer workaround for enabling reefer trailer sounds now ALSO works when the truck is not moving.
Now you can park up with an owned reefer trailer, modded or vanilla, and listen to the sounds! :)

The steps for the ownable trailer workaround are as follows:

1. Go into the Audio settings.
2. In the voice navigation menu, select "~ Function - Force enable reefer sound".
3. Click the Preview button.
4. Select a different voice navigation option OR uncheck the voice navigation.
5. If you want to turn off the reefer sound, detaching the trailer will work in most cases. Otherwise restart the game.

----

In favor of the Emergency Brake System PLUS additional reefer sound support,
the alert sound effect for driving on the grass at high speed has been removed.

Minor sound balancing for some base game AI traffic cars. [ATS edition]
Definition file redundancy has been added for error free gameplay with the Municipal Police Traffic Pack. [ATS edition]

-- Optional addon news --
"Disable Driver Alert Support" addon is no longer necessary for Sound Fixes Pack v23.38 and later.



BONUS NOTE: If you've read this far congratulations! I suspect some will try to mix the ownable trailer workaround with the Freight Market SCS reefer trailers modded by the reefer sound addon. While the owned reefer trailer workaround is intended for owned trailers only, you can actually use it for reefer trailers in the Freight Market, Quick Jobs, and External Contracts to get the reefer sound when stopped at a traffic light for example. But I advise to activate the workaround after the reefer startup sound effect (after trailer is attached) has played and you're driving off and only if you know what you're doing, otherwise there is a chance of doubling the reefer sound loop.

With the insect ambient sounds toned down now in ATS 1.47, it appears to be safe to reference the vanilla insect ambient sounds now.
This also gives a satisfying file size reduction for the ATS version of the mod. :D

The reefer sound owned trailer workaround can now function well with a non-owned reefer (e.g. in Freight Market) to continue the sound when stopped at a traffic light for instance, but I recommend activating the workaround after the reefer startup sound has played, if the trailer has one.

Without further ado, here is the mod update!

AI traffic sound news

58% of the base game AI traffic sounds are now complete ( +1%)!
----

World Ambient sound news (American Truck Simulator)

There are some bugged animal sounds such as a dog barking in the vanilla game in American Truck Simulator. It would play at the same volume even if you were in the main menu and was not affected by the World/Ambient sound sliders in the Audio Settings.
It happened for me at certain roads in the Texas DLC. With this mod update those problematic sounds are removed for now. I can't believe nobody told me about this...
----

Default railroad crossing bell (American Truck Simulator)

Default/fallback railroad crossing bell is now the General Signals Type 1 E-bell which is fairly common already in the United States.
This will extend its usage to map mods like ProMods Canada, since e-bells are used for railroad crossings in places like Canada too.

----

Without further ado, here is the mod update!

70% of the base game AI traffic sounds are now complete ( +1%)!
