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.

Normal car lights (except the noticable beam headlights) are handled via a shader, this mod uses seperate effects, both methods work in different ways. You could still add these effects to a car to see what it looks like, but idk if it gives a good looking result.

Could this be used to make the rear lights and especially the brake lights of cars more intense?

Well, Thaok made this one, but I've copied his reverb disable code into this mod now:

Acc3ss Violation, i looked far and wide for a mod that disables that stupid reverb effect.
This one seems to be the only one, but ihave t osubscribe to another one.
Could you maybe please make a mod that ONLY disables that global reverb effect?
Not that your mod is not good, it is just not what i was looking for :o)

This is good that you made this.... But, these sounds are inside the train effects than outside.

Can you make a light version (no Vehicle Effects mod required) with only 'Disable Reverb' and maybe also the silence station option. I tried it myself, but I still had the reverb ingame :(.
