Base Freight Bogie sound mod for TSW 2

  • Downloaded 1375 times

166 core files modified in the TSW 2 base pack. To provide more realistic heavier sounding trains, applicable to most DLC in TSW2
What to expect- Less rattling, Wagons should woosh by rather than sounding akin to a line of shopping Trolleys.
The loco will be the dominant sound, especially at power, whenever in proximity of the viewer.
Brake sounds , creaks and squeaks still remain, at more approriate times.
TSW.Freight.pak Still much more subtle running than default TSW but slightly more pronounced rattles, squeaks etc.

Added on 26 June 2022:
TSWFreightpakv3 much more prominent running, rattles and squeaks, whilst still remaining balanced.

Requirements

TSW 2 4.26

Installation Instructions

Simply drop into DLC folder

Additional Comments

If you have any of the following mods installed
FKA mod
HEA sound tweak
Flat wheel remover
You can delete them from your DLC as they are made redundant by this. Whilst defective/flat wheels are active in this new mod, its working nicely within the new setup.

The work you do is incredible. I always found the freight cars too loud. I agree with Acela and will look forward to further improvements once you get the time.

In my opinion, this makes the freight cars way too quiet. At 30mph the run sounds are barely audible, it's almost like playing vanilla TS1 from before DTG revamped the run sounds.

Although this mod is quite a few files to tweak. Whenever Ive got time , Im looking to improve my mods. I’ll keep experimenting Acela, introduce certain sfx slightly louder and see where it goes.

One thing I noticed: When the train passes (cam8) there is a slight crackle sound, noticed this on Cane Creek (Uranium)

hey
first of all your sounds are a game changer for real.
here's the thing. i recorded some other sounds from youtube videos but i'm not sure how to go about making them into a pak. if i could get some assistance and maybe use this one as another sound to put with it that'd be great. that's if you have the time. thanks in advance

I really like the 3rd version of the mod. It sounds heavy, bassy, flat wheel sounds are blended in really well and it does not sound like I am hauling shopping carts and does not overpower the locomotive sounds.

Good to hear. I agree, Im enjoying this 3rd version.

Also, I just found out it makes a huge difference on arosaline. Idk why the passenger cars were set up as freight cars so it's a gamechanger with this mod.

Does it! Thanks for the info.

Yea, the passenger cars were set up as freight cars which is why you always hear the shopping cart sounds when you apply power. Now it's just pure engine noise and since the bogie freight mod makes the freight more bassy, no more of the shopping cart sounds

Hey Rob, there is an issue I noticed when I played iow after the recent update. Don't know if it's caused by the recent update or not cuz I haven't played iow after I installed this sound mod Whenever there is flange squeal, it basically causes my earbuds to blow up. In other words, it sounds like someone is blowing air really loudly into the mic and hearing that through my earbuds. Idk how to describe it. After I deleted the mod, there were no issues with the sound and doesn't really affect other routes. Is this something you are looking into fixing?

is that my latest version? I might get some time soon, I'll look at it. Sounds like the bass needs lifting a bit.

Avatar of Arch

yes. It is the latest version. The issue doesn't really bother me in other routes but in iow, it causes the really bassy, loud, grindy, stacticky sound in iow. If you have iow and play with the sound mod, you'll know what I mean.

I might get the new iow at some point, but I dont have the current one.

But yea, the bass would need some lifting so it isn't blowing out my headphones

TSWFreightpakv3 - There is too much bass, a solid bass buzz, you can't hear screeching, squeaking at all because of the huge amount of bass. A strong hum.
