The Cummins ISX has a distinctive 'jangling chain' sound at idle. That seems to have been lost along the way. Kriechbaum was the only one who had this idle sound, but that's back in 1.35/36
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts.. do.

I’m with you Viktor. I like CATs but I like being different too and Cummins sound meaner

Kriechbaum kindly gave me a copy of the X15 to try out.
I set the Truck Exhaust slider to 75% and the turbo slider to about 40% (all other truck noises at 50% as suggested) and dropped it in my KW hauling machine parts from Vegas to Steamboat Springs, CO in a 53ft trailer.
When I was given the engine to try, Kriechbaum said "Try the X15. It's a nice engine."
Nice?
Nope. It's a salivating, growling animal. It'll pull ya mother-in-law right off the buffet. It's glorious.
Still a couple of little tweaks to go, but shouldn't be too long now for public release.
Once again, this guy just leaves everyone else in a dust trail.
This makes more excited for an engine than any man has a right to be. You, sir, should be in marketing.

@room217au I know exactly the sound you mean. The main problem is, it wasn’t a healthy sound. It was caused by wear on the cam gears which made excessive backlash. The ISX in my last truck did it until I put a new cam and gears in it, then it was smooth.

I actually prefer the Cummins engine brakes to the Cats. Mind you Im talking from a company driver stand point, so no straight pipes (mostly). But the CAT's had a much more muted sound compared to the Cummins.

And why is there no love for the DD Series 60? The older ones made all kinds of happy noises (even through mufflers) when crawling down a mountain.

@Dukman Honestly if its a big diesel engine I love how it sounds,it can be a CAT or DD or even a train engine, its just my opinion that Cummins engines sound the best.

I personally can't wait for this x15. Its even got that performance series whine. The x15 efficiency series doesn't have that whine the performance series does in the same way. It's much quieter. Kriechbaum always blows the rest away with all these sounds he does. From what I heard, this engine sound is nothing short of a work of art. Thanks for making this game so enjoyable with these sounds.

@Kw900 when I recorded my truck for this sound mod I was very careful to make sure I got the whine captured properly. That whine is a dead giveaway as to what engine it is.
