ATS – Sound Fixes Pack v 17.73 (1.28.X)
Sound Fixes Pack Mod.
– 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.
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)!
Capped sounds of tires on asphalt, gravel and grass to a certain volume to prevent tires with high noise ratings from being louder than intended.
Added delays for default AI car horns for patient drivers in traffic to prevent short intervals between repeating honks. (Car alarms will no longer work on parked vehicles as a side effect, however car alarms are on the decline anyway)
Added delays for default AI truck horns to prevent short intervals between repeating honks. [ETS2 edition]
Tweaked road noise. [ATS edition]

## 8. Mover sounds
