- 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.

Minimum requirements

Requires higher priority in Mod Manager than:

- 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

* Real interior + exterior tire sounds. Tires will resonate in the cab depending on how fast you are accelerating and what speed you are in, giving a feel for your sense of speed.
* 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.
* Hard impacts can trigger key swinging sounds in interior view.

## 3. Gameplay / UI sounds

* Reduced volume of garage door sound, adviser message sound and yawning sound.
* New quiet photo camera sound effect for screenshots.
* Quieter volume of PrePass weigh station signals in American Truck Simulator.

## 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.

* AI traffic vehicles given new horn sounds. Depending on the patience of the driver, a short or long honk may be used.
* AI traffic trucks/buses given more variations of detailed sounds (may include turbo sounds, distinctive engine sounds, sounds of gear changes, etc.).
* Variety of engine sounds for several vehicles (e.g. motorbike sounds for motorbikes) in various AI Traffic mods and in stock trucks from the original game.
* 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.

* ETS2 1.27.2 + 1.28.1 and ATS 1.28.1. 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"

@Krys Emlyn - Thank you! The current retarder sound (v17.68) is confirmed to be the permanent replacement for the original. :)

The current sound for the retarder (Sept 19) are much better than what this mod originally had and the first attempt at replacing the sound for it. The original sounded like a low-flying jet coming in for a landing while a metal cage rattled somewhere. The first attempt at replacing the sound made is sound like a pitch-altered version of engine noise, which caused some issues with my headset because it sounded so similar to the engine noise. The current version is nicely distinguishable from the engine noise when the retarder is active and I'm not having issues with it from my headset.

@YouDriveSafely, ok thanks for the info, understood! And once aggain, really good job!

@Four For Fore - The Youtube videos are done by other people. You'd have to ask PolishDriverTruck for that one. If I had to guess, I'd think it's a Kriechbaum Scania V8 sound for the Scania 143m. Although there's an increased selection of Scania V8 sound mods nowadays.

I think the Scania 143m mod itself comes with its own sound, but not sure.

@YouDriveSafely, absolutely fantastic mod! I watched the YouTube video that you have posted with the mod. Which truck/sound mod are you using for that truck? I LOVE the interior and how it sounds and would like to replicate it!

@supersobes - Sweet! :D I'm confident the new sound is a keeper

@warcatt00 - Thank you! :D Jake brake sounds are the responsibility of the truck mod or engine sound mod (there's no default sound for it), so it's not in the scope of the Sound Fixes Pack.

For some reason, Steam didn't download the new file for this mod until the 2nd thime I played ETS2 today. The retarder sound in the newest verion is very nice and you should keep it. Hppy Trucking! :D

@YouDriveSafely, This is a very good, good job! If you ever decide to put another one up. Should consider the "J" brake, known as the engine brake. In the default game, can't really tell if it is on or off. For real it is a very loud open exhaust noise. That is why you tend to see sound walls by stopping locations. Unless Europe Trucks are very, very quiet then sorry never mind. I know my Hino wasn't, but that was Jap made... Other than that, NICE JOB!!!

I do like this retarder sound better because it less whiney, nut I do still think the retarder sound is still a bit loud compared to everything else.

v17.68 - Test number 2 with a new candidate retarder sound. This one should be more normal - it's got bassy low frequencies and the retarder whine in the high frequency.
Let me know how it sounds on your audio device :)

@supersobes - I've just updated the pack to v17.68 with another candidate retarder sound. Let me know if you like this one. I think this one's the winner :)
