New Wind, Rain & Thunder Sounds (In-Cab) | TSW3 Compatible

Ever thought the audio in bad weather in TSW was just a short-looped wall of noise that actually bore no resemblance to real-world weather? Me too. Here are some completely new sounds for in-cab wind and rain effects, alongside a re-working of the included Thunder sounds which were, in my opinion, too quiet. These are real world samples that ebb and flow, creating much more of an ambience and feel when driving in bad weather. Additionally, whereas real thunderstorms can often cause a house to rattle I felt the included thunderclap audio was too quiet. As such I've lifted the volume as much as I could (I would like to have gone louder but it was clipping) which again sounds much more realistic.

Note - For TSW2 there are no changes from the existing version and the file remains seperate.

Sound effects obtained from

Is this compatible with the Epic Games Version?

I’m not sure as I don’t own it. If you tried it and had success would you mind letting me know? I can then mark it as compatible. Cheers.

This sounds great, but there's a noticeable 1 second of silence when driving the Brighton Main Line 377 with the windows open. Do you think you can extend the sound to mask this or fix it in any way?

Hi, with the windows open I don’t think you’d be hearing these sounds, but instead the default external audio. To my knowledge they only work in-cab with the windows closed. Please note that as per real life it is not a constant wall of noise, and both the wind and rain ebb and flow in intensity. It's possible that there will be a second or so where this audio is quiet.
