Previous soundproofing for ATS

Description
This mod brings back a similar soundproofing from 1.42 for ATS default trucks affected by the 1.43 interior cabin sound update.

Features:
* Stops in-cab engine sounds from being louder than when the camera is outside and next to the engine.
* Reduces the excess reverb in the cabin.
* Lowers sound volume of high pitch sounds such as turbo when windows are closed.

Notes:
You can enable this mod with low priority in the Mod Manager if you want.

Modders are welcome to use the baseline settings provided in this mod for sound_effects_units.sui
Tip: Do not stray too far in increasing gain values, because it may affect all sounds such as traffic and ambient sounds.

@Herr Lauert - Pleased to hear that! :steamthumbsup: Enjoy!! :D

Holy fuck. What can I say? It works wonderfully! My only worry was that I wouldn't be able to hear any more sounds, but that's not the case at all! I can hear even more than before and that's the best thing about it! THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS! Thank you very much indeed. Now I can use Kriechbaum's engines again without setting the sound low (50% all truck engine sounds)

@Herr Lauert - That reminds me I need to record a before/after comparison video for this. But yes the mod solves the loudness problem from the interior view. :)

Awesome! Yes, I'm currently only playing with the default trucks from SCS. I'm curious to see if I'm happy with the result. It's a pity because some engines sound way too loud in the cabin, even if I set all truck engine sounds to 50% or 40%, but that's also a solution. I would also leave it at 50% and just want to have it as your mod promises. Louder outside but quieter in the cabin with the windows closed.

@Herr Lauert - Yes as long as it's for the default selection of playable trucks. For modded trucks, you may find this extended mod by Oxferd helpful: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3082545767

Both our mods are compatible with the sound effects from the Interior Noise Mod (ATS) and the Peterbilt Interior & Effect Sound Pack by Zeemod. Just put the Previous soundproofing with higher priority than those mods if you want the soundproofing from this mod :)

@Drive Safely Wow! This could perhaps solve my problem with the too loud engines from Kriechbaum, so I'm using others for now. I just have a few questions. I only use two interior sounds from Zeemods, Zeemods Peterbilt Effects and Zeemod Interior Noises but no engine sounds from Zeemods. I would like to use Kriechbaum's engines again but it happens exactly what you describe in your info. The engine sound is much too loud in the cabin, as if the engine was sitting directly in the cabin.

Would your mod solve the problem with the Kriechbaum engines being too loud? Does it affect the interior sounds of Zeemods? Thank you very much for your answer.
