This mod is an expansion pack for Vehicle Effects mod.

Ready for game version 1.9 (Green Cities)

New effects summary:
  • Turbo-diesel sound effect with delayed turbo rpm, simulating turbine inertia (video and video)
  • Electric motor sounds for older direct current driven metro-like trains (video)
  • Specialized sound for Sprague-Thomson with departure bell, braking air strokes, wheel squealing and compressor (video)
  • Diesel idle sound while trains are stopped
  • Functional rear lights
  • Rolling stock sounds for passenger and cargo trains (video)
  • Braking sound, speed dependent
  • Wheel flange grinding/squealing in curves (depending on radius and speed)
  • Door closing sounds
  • Bell and whistle sounds available for arrival and departure
  • this list is supposed to grow in the future, everytime I have an idea and some time...

For a detailed demonstration and explanation, please watch the videos or check the instructions for vehicle authors.

By default, the mod silences the rail service sounds played randomly at stations, since I found them to be disturbing. Also, the global reverb that came with game version 1.6 is disabled by default.You can change this behaviour and some effect volumes in the options.

The mod can be deactivated any time without danger of breaking anything.

There is none of the sound effects visible in the effect editor. Am I doing something wrong? Ive got both vehicle effects mods subscribed.

Hi, I love your creation with this mod. Thank you. I would like to ask you, can you please make realistic tram/ light rail sounds with the engine sounds accelerating and decelerating and a chime for when it enters a station or pick up zone, I am using the Tram: KVB K4200 by Dryas The Younger.

@maxstepanov -- Thanks for letting me know. I'm glad you got it sorted. I removed my "shout out" to the authors, since it was no longer necessary.
