The biggest update of the mod yet is here! Sounds will keep improving regularly as I’ll be doing weekly or bi-weekly updates. I will appreciate any advice and comments about this mod, as a lot of feedback from the past year was taken into consideration for this update. I know this mod means a lot to people so I’ll keep maintaining it as long as I can.
This update includes a new volume standard. It should go well now with the vanilla truck sounds as well as quiet engine sound mods such as Vasily EVR’s mods.
Corrected soundproofing in interior view of truck. New interior_sound_volume is 0.16 which brings more realism.
Redone tire and wind sound to be more accurate with what you hear in the truck cabin.
Redone default AI truck and bus traffic sound.
Redone sound for retarder stick, blinker off stick, and light switch.
Redone city sounds. Bird sounds are much more quiet.
Reworked refueling sounds.
Reduced volume of 1 external suspension sound.
Finetuned adviser message and escort message sound effect for Special Transport DLC.
Slight reduction in volume for some animated gates sounds in Animated Gates mod by Schumi (both ETS2 and ATS versions).

* ETS2 1.33.2, 1.34.0 + ATS 1.33.2, 1.34.0. 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 this mod can be used with an unlimited amount of truck sound mods of your choice.
* Compatible with all maps.
* Supports compatibility with your favorite rain sound mods as this does not alter rain/thunder sounds. 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 the Options folder of Sound Fixes Pack for winter sounds (non-Steam download – http://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=212&t=200919).
* 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”
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)
The mod also provides real top speeds and real colors for the AI vehicles which are modded with custom sounds.
This is due to the top speed and color settings being shared in the same file as the sound settings for each AI vehicle.
However in the interest in bringing realism, the AI vehicle colors are 100% verifiable using real paint codes, colors from the paintref website, and photos.
Rarer colors (e.g. purple) will have a lower probability to be seen.
* SCS Software for base sounds
* Drive Safely for sound edits, some sound samples, and for compiling mod
* antonvezdehod, Ludmilla and Katixa/Irreo for some tire sounds
* Balamut for some key swing and light suspension sounds
