Sound Fixes Pack v17.53 - ATS


- 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 map mods (e.g. ProMods, RusMap, etc.)
- 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

* "Late music" replaced with Nokia phone ringtone sound (volume of this sound depends on Music volume in the in-game Audio settings).
* "Bing bong" chime for train and ferry loading screen 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.

* At high speeds, wind will sound slightly faster.
* Mix of default amplified gear grinding sounds and new gear grinding sounds. Can be heard when you have damaged the transmission and/or gearbox.

## 6. Trailer sounds

* Included air brake hose deattachment sound when uncoupling.

* 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.

* 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"

v17.51 - The new air horn sounds are optimized for a pair of horns, but not meant to mixed with other horns as each horn is quite distinctive.

Also make sure to vote in the poll for the new air horn sounds here:

v17.51 - New air horn sounds for accessory hookups (truck upgrade shop) are being trialled.

Let me know what you think and whether these sounds should stay in the Sound Fixes Pack. Aug 2 @ 10:23am 
did 1.28 update

come out yet?
Hurricane Matthew Aug 1 @ 6:27am 
Ok thanks
YouDriveSafely  [author] Jul 31 @ 8:53pm 
@Hurricane Matthew - It's already updated for 1.28. When you update your game it will already be compatible and ready to go. :)

@Hotstuff5743 - I will try to add modded air horn sounds by v17.51.
Hurricane Matthew Jul 31 @ 5:09pm 
Can you update this mod to 1.28 whenever it comes out?
Hotstuff5743 Jul 21 @ 5:27pm 
lol something that sounds better then the default SCS ones cuz regardless if u put on the thunder, the roar or the super roar they all sound the same. The only thing i've noticed that changes is the truck horns. It's funny though cuz my default truck is Viper's with the big stacks & i've got the big harley davidson roar from my truck but soon as i use the air horns i go from being a big bad ass truck to being a clown car.

@Sad Leeroy - That's not in the scope of this mod since it's an individual player truck sound. That's either up to you or a truck sound modder.
Sad Leeroy Jul 21 @ 8:25am 
Please increase the volume of the turn signals for Peterbilt 389
YouDriveSafely  [author] Jul 21 @ 1:29am 
@Hotstuff5743 - I'll think about it. If I don't decide to put it in the base mod I could always make an addon. Do you have any specific air horn products in mind?
