Forum rules
SCS as a company do not wish to have paid mods on this forum. While we understand that not all paid mods use the Intellectual Property of other companies/people, it is very hard to moderate what is and isn't acceptable when money is involved. There are also concerns that it could look unfavorable to potential work partners going forward if SCS allow mods that may potentially use unlicensed branding.

750Hp engine sound

#1 Post by Kazarooniscssoft » 09 Sep 2020 18:56

In the past, when you upgraded your DAf truck engine to 750 hp
The sound of the engine was the same as the DAF truck
But now, after activating 750 horsepower, the sound of the Volvo engine can be heard
What is standard coding to solve this problem?

Kazarooniscssoft, if you are creating an engine mod for a DAF truck, or using an engine mod that makes the Volvo 750 hp engine available for the DAF you're going to get the Volvo sound unless you mod the engine file.

You can edit this easily yourself: copy the 750 hp engine file to the def/vehicle/truck/DAFtruckNAME/engine folder and rename the engine file something like "d16g750daf.sii and then, in that file change the line "accessory_engine_data : d16g750.volvo.fh16.engine" to "accessory_engine_data : d16g750daf.xxx.xxx.engine" where the xxx.xxx portion of the line would be either daf.xf or daf.xf_euro6. Then for this file you change the sound bank from sound: "/sound/truck/volvo_def.bank"" to sound: "/sound/truck/daf_eu6_def.bank" - that's if you want to use the SCS DAF engine sounds. You can point it at a modded truck sound as well but then you have to include the two relevant sounds banks in the sound/truck/ folder or you wont get any engine sound.

Can you do it for multiplayer?

Kazarooniscssoft, Good question, I have no idea as I've never used TruckersMP. Hopefully someone who knows that inside and out will chime in.
