A random collection of my smaller mods for cab sound occlusion and route bloom reduction.

Updated 21st Sept 2022 (New BKL bloom reduction added)
Updated 20th Sept 2022 (New MRCEBR182 cab volume mod & changes to Corefreightcarsounds)
Updated 19th Sept 2022 (New RTBR182 cab volume mod)
Updated 18th Sept 2022 (New BR155 cab volume mod & HSC bloom reduction added)

Sound:

Bescot_BPEF40cabvolume : Balances the in cab audio on the Boston MBTA F40ph. In the default loco the audio practically went silent when you had the windows closed. TSW2/3

Bescot_BR155cabvolume : Balances the in cab audio on the DB BR155. In the default loco the external and motor audio practically went silent when you had the windows closed and was drowned out by the sound of the trailing wagons. TSW2/3

Bescot_BR182MRCEcabvolume : Balances the in cab audio on the HBK (MRCE) DB BR182. In the default loco the cab was drowned out by the sound of the trailing wagons. TSW2/3

Bescot_BR182RTcabvolume : Balances the in cab audio on the Rapid Transit (Traffic Red) DB BR182. In the default loco the external and motor audio practically went silent when you had the windows closed and was drowned out by the sound of the trailing wagons or DoStos. TSW2/3

Bescot-CoreUSfreightcarsounds : Balances sounds on the US freight cars (tested in SPG & HSC) NB. Some freight cars are not set up to play flange squeal properly which at the moment I cannot change, I decided to remove flange sounds back to default as some Euro wagons use these sounds and they're not really compatible. TSW2/3

Bescot-HSCES44cabvolume : Balances the in cab audio on the HSC ES44 so that the cab is better sound insulated from the prime mover when the doors and windows are closed. As you open each window and door the external sounds increase in volume. TSW2/3


Vision: (ForTSW3 only)

Why cant the intermodal loads be putted with EMP / JB Hunt / Etc -
Only thing you possibly could see on Norfolk Southern Trains is EMP and JB Hunt and the blue one.

The CoreUS mod made all of my european freight car flange sounds a deafening 1 second loop.

Ye. DTG use the US core freight sounds on stuff that wasn't meant to be like that. I guess pull the mod from the dlc folder when using euro stuff.

Can you please fix the bloom/over-driven gamma of the Horseshoe Curve route with a mod like this?

Great job for the BR182 for Rapid Transit. Do you think you can do the same for the BR 182 MRCE for Hamburg-Lubeck? Thanks for yours mods.

Yes, I'll do that soon. I have looked at the MRCE version, and although you hear the lok running sounds better than the RT version, I also think the wagons behind are too loud inside the cab.

one thing I've noticed with the f40 sound mod is that at notch 8 with windows closed, there is no engine sound at all in the cab. other notches work fine, but it disappears at 8, so all you hear are the track sounds made by the passenger cars

I've just tested that again, and can't reproduce sorry - it works properly here (TSW3)

Probably cuz im soo used to playing with all windows open and the f40 does get real quiet with windows all closed. Btw, what exactly did you change with the us freight pack? Was it just volume reduction so it doesn't sound like you're hearing the freight cars in the cab?

Avatar of Bescot

CoreFreight, well I actually increased volumes of the cars, and this week I went back to the default flange squeal as DTG changed something in the core which made the flange sounds very odd at low speed.
The cabvolume mods are done by changing occlusion volume mixes- cabs have sound occlusion and without the mixes it would mean external sounds play the same volume inside the cab as outside. You want to strike the correct balance which DTG sometimes don't as they copy/paste them across different DLC - you can edit these mixes with UassetGUI editor and spend some time fixing them to control the internal volume of each external sound. Each stage of a door or window opening adds a mix - there are 10 levels of volume in total.

The sound of Bescot-CoreUSfreightcar is great, just what was needed! Good balance, nothing sticks out, everything is fine, thank you!

With the F40, I don't notice any difference (to the engine) with or without the mod (TSW 3). In both cases, the engine is very quiet with the windows closed.
How much did you change it? Or is something not working right?
