One question more, do you have any general advice about the samples recorded (quality/specs/ etc..)? i mean i have some good ones, but ingame they are just way too low, and if i increase the dB in FMOD it seems to increase the "reverb" and it makes the sound like to be in a huge room :D

@DeDios I have been using ogg for the most part; have not really seen an improvement using wav or better formats in FMOD and they can be problematic with buffer overruns in the game for users with low amounts of memory.

I typically normalize the samples to a 0 db reference point in an external editing program; I use Audacity but there are many you can use for this. Keep in mind many samples you will find already have effects on them, especially delay and reverb and if they have too much gain it just compounds the additional effects SCS adds through the spatializer.

@Robinicus I now have the right version of FMOD and have also downloaded the templates. But nothing more happens. I do not understand the program. I can see that the program has actually loaded the templates. But the view remains empty. A view that looks only approximate, like your screenshot, missing. I'm afraid I don't get it. Template I renamed and even the assets I successfully saved to the template file. But that was it.
Thanks for the answer anyway.

Thanks @Robinicus , i use audacity as well, i will try to nornalize the samples at 0dB. Sadly i've done the exact opposite using amplifier, then i think I've screwed them. Tomorrow i will try to revert the effect, hoping to being able to recover the work. Thanks for the advice :)

@snare85 - You can create one if there isn't already one. This is for configuring the interior sounds of the truck.

If you extract the DLC for a truck, you can find an example. For the Volvo VNL, it would be located in def\vehicle\truck\volvo.vnl\interior\sounds.sui

One question more: is there a parameter which regulate the delta between interior sound and exterior? actually i've found a good volume balance in the interior, but exterior is way too much loud.

@DeDios - no, the API side is what controls this; you could do some experimenting with the levels you set of anything you route to an external Grp but it is pretty much impossible to get the right balance with anything doing this right now.

Hi guys, I think this is really a good guide ... if it wasn't in English. :?

Can someone please do this in German?
