One Click Installation!

This package is unique (and very large) - the idea was to make installation even easier for everyone.
All you need is Soundpad (paid full version: Steam, totally worth it).
Just download the ZIP file and extract the folder to a folder on your hard disk.
Open Soundpad. Then start the file #Train_Announcements_Tokio_VX.X.spl

Done! Now you can select the route and the service in Soundpad.

In Soundpad settings, select a hotkey for "play next file," e.g., Num-8.
Now you can easily play the sounds one after another with your hotkey. Read our Hotkey Tutorial down below.

We have added a second download.
In this one, the individual files are organized and structured in folders.
This download is for those who want to customize the list in Soundpad according to their own preferences.
You only need one of the two downloads.

About:
The voices have a natural and stunning quality, and the texts have been updated to ensure a uniform and recognizable announcement for future announcement packages. I also updated some effects.
TSW will be more realistic and varied.

These announcements will be updated in the future and new announcements will be added.
My announcements will only be updated and supplemented here in order to have everything centralized and simple on one page.

The announcements are now (and in the future) always arranged as follows:

  • An announcement when leaving the station (a short greeting).
  • An announcement before the next station (with informations! These announcements can be up to 2 minutes long at large stations, so play them in good time).
  • There are some optional special announcements with hotkeys. You can change the hotkey if you want to.

For door direction and special announcements we recommend this tutorial:
In Soundpad settings:

  • Set hotkey for "Select next file".
  • Set hotkey for "Play selected file".
  • Set hotkeys for the door announcements (or other special announecments).

In Game:

  • Play the first station greeting.
  • Then use "Select next file" - hotkey.
  • Use „Play selected file“ Hotkey for next stop announcement.
  • Use „Select next file“ – Hotkey
  • Then use your Hotkey for door announcement.
  • Leaving the station "Play selected sound" hotkey for the next greeting announcement.
  • Then the process starts from the beginning…

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write them in the comments. :)

Disclaimer:
The idea of using soundpad for the announcements was not my idea. But we have perfected it and thought it through.
I'm not claiming anything here. Manny inspired me with his sound-mods. Check out his work!
I created the files myself, invented the text (credits to Mor) and edited the audio.
Anyone who wants to use the announcements is welcome.
The announcements were created and generated by me and Mor and are only subject to our copyright.
You are welcome to use the announcements privately, but also in streams or YouTube videos.
We would be happy if you mentioned it.

What program do you use to create these sounds? I want to try making some more of my own custom ones

Most of the time i am working with ableton. It‘s a professional DAW.

Hi Could you sort the announcements by folder ? It would be easier when downloading this AIO package

Avatar of Quentin J.
Quentin J. 28 Feb 2024

I second that, it's a very nice package but I have my own sound list already set up and I don't want to lose it. It'd be great to have them sorted by folder.

Tokio 28 Feb 2024

Thanks for the Feedback. I will check this, if it’s possible in the soundpad export. But you can switch between your own soundpad list and this one.

@Quentin J. @eddymrelderscrolls could you tell me exactly what you need/want to do? That would really help me finding a solution since your original question was a bit unclear to me. Thank you

Thanks dude; sure, It would be nice to have announcements packed by routes

Avatar of Quentin J.
Quentin J. 28 Feb 2024

What I meant is keeping the package as an All in One, but having the sound announcements sorted by route folders and possibly services. This would make it easier, but that would double if not more the file size. I've saved my Sound List and will be using yours for your announcements. Thanks for your reply though!

Mor 29 Feb 2024

Thanks you for your answers! We are working on a solution for that.(We found a new possibility, but just have to test it)

Hello. Unfortunately, our original plan (that I had in mind when I wrote my answer two days ago) doesn't work, because you can't relink files in Soundpad. We will probably upload a second file which is just a zip with all anouncements sorted in folders.

Hi, thanks for the work you have done, this makes the game a lot more fun. Do you plan to provide the announcements for all (german) routes? Especially for HRR

Avatar of Mor
Mor 28 Feb 2024

Hi! Thanks for your feedback! There will be more routes (in the next days/weeks). HRR is definitely comming, but I can't tell you when.

Warum kommt da ein Bahnsteigsgong???!!!!

Tokio 2 Mar 2024

because it's fictional.

Avatar of Mor
Mor 3 Mar 2024

FreezeLP there are hundreds of different gong sounds in different trains, depending on the producer of the train and the railway company, sometimes there is also no gong. But to have the same for every mod, we had to choose one. It would be too much work to use different gongs for each package and no gong would also sound a bit boring.

sorry this is not the best mod... i dind't like the English voices... its not realistic at all... and the platform gong is bizar .... 4 upvotes says enough saidly enough ....

Then don‘t use it. :) it is so simple. Or create your own mod. It is fictional to get some more fun and depth to the game.

Better you listening to the users... If you compare it with the downloads the upvotes are not in line.... But do what you want and create more of this kind of useless mods.....

Avatar of Mor
Mor 3 Mar 2024

Man why are you hating people? Nobody forces you to use these mods so stop wrighting such a trsh. If you don't like the announcements just leave this page. There are enough people who like them and are happy about it. It isn't something you paid for or that you have a right on, it is a bonus to the usual experience. So just go crying and leave us alone, thank you.

Mor 3 Mar 2024

oh and btw: you "lied" when you said we got little upvotes for that amount of downloads, watch other mods and with some math you will see that there are mods with more downloads and less upvotes, so please don't just write something but check if you are correct with your "critics"

Normally I'm just a silent reader and user, but now I just have to give a shout out! Thank you for the announcements, they make TSW so much better. Using it with the soundpad (costs a few euros) is easy and great.

Thanks for your feedback Smokey. But I am a bit confused about the missing announcement: The RE 2 Duisburg-Essen and Essen- Duisburg only stops at Mühlheim HBF, this announcement is existing. Or is it maybe a different layer (other RE train)?

well this will not work. Just download the new version. It should be there.

Is it possible that you accidentally deleted the file in Soundpad?

Really great work! Raises the immersion to a great level. I use it for every passenger service.
One detail for the RailJet: In Austria we don't say "lecker", we say "köstlich".
