Improved Environment Sound v1.4

I was asked to test this Improved Environment Sound Mod, so I thought Why not. I will give it a try.  With this mod you will hear, all kinds of Environmental sounds, like birds, wind, rain and thunder. Now the thunder sound was really nice, it was so realistic that my dog woke up from a sound sleep. I also made an effort to get to the ferry ports, because I wanted to hear what change had been done to the ship whistle.  I was very happy that I did, I also drove past a church, and I was able to hear the bells chime, as I was driving by. This really made my trip into Russia worth it.
Now when you open this file, you will find 3 SCS files. There is a readme and some picture’s that will help you set this up. They must go in the right order, or this mod will not work.
I believe that there has been a lot of work put into the making of this mod, and I think this is very much worth a try.
I will highly recommend this mod to any one that wants to try it. I am very happy that I did.

This is such a stunning mod for your game with these features:

  1. New ferry and train (Eurotunnel) sounds;
  2. New environment sounds for forest and city. Now its total 20 new sounds;
  3. Mod is fully compatible with Sound Fixes Pack mod by Drive Safely, but must be installed with higher priority!
  4. New photo mode camera sound;
  5. Reworked ambience sounds for companies. Added many missing sounds for different companies (for default, Pro Mods, RusMap, ROS, TSM and MHA map companies). Added more than 40 sounds overall;
  6. New yawn sounds for men/women driver;
  7. Realistic train sounds including sound of railroad crossing sound;
  8. New menu music;
  9. New garage interior and garage gates sound;
  10. More realistic and more detailed refueling and trailer coupling sounds;

  14. New HQ rain blobs textures and general look of rain on windshield;
  15. New realistic sounds for ai cars and new ai car horn sounds, taken from real cars;
  16. Mod adds more than 230 high quality sounds and music for ETS2;

Changelogs:

  • Decreased sound level of forest ambient sounds and increased traffic sounds: as a result, inside cabin you will hear not birds chirps, but traffic noise;
  • Added nine new ambient sounds for city and forest;
  • Improved interior rain and outside rain sounds;
  • Improved rain on windshield look;
  • Truck and trailer damage levels was changed to default values;

    • This mod is compatible with all other mods. But:
      1) It must be always installed with higher priority, than map mods;
      2) If you install some mod(s) which have game_data.sii in its structure with higher priority, than this mod, you`ll loose nine new environment sounds for forest and city.

      So, the best thing you can do is to use it with highest priority. It won`t affect other mods and will work as it should.

  1. I don’t usually comment on mods, but in this case I felt I had to. My comments are not meant in anyway as disrespectful towards AlexeyP.

    Basically it’s a great mod with many new and exciting ideas. As I use a (slightly modified) version of Drive Safely’s sound fixes pack, I am able to run this mod 1 priority slot BELOW DS’s mod, and get the best of both worlds.

    The one and only thing I find negative about this mod is………well let’s just say I’ve been googling “Bird Strangling”. ‘Nuff said. 😉

    • yeah, it’s kind of funny that you can hear birds chirping “at night” when you’re cruising down the highway at 100 kph. But, you can’t hear the truck that’s passing in the lane right next to you.

      • Drive Safely was good enough to enlighten me as to how to increase the volume of exterior sounds heard inside the cab – aka “open window driving”, so that isn’t an issue.
        It’s more a case of birds happily tweeting in the background aren’t conducive to my temper after I’ve just been carved up by a “learner” AI (I use a “harsh traffic mod” which is excellent btw).
        Happy tweets don’t sit well with “Where did you learn to drive, you ****!!!!”

  2. Thanks Lone Wolf for such detailed and positive review of my mod. I promise, that i will polish this mod, when i will have free time from my interior/exterior rework mods.
