EDIT 8/27/2021(2): Changed GP38-2 radfan audio.
EDIT 3/23/2022: Added new CSX SD40 soundset, available if one has the New Journeys Expansion. Thanks to Yuri for compiling the PAK.

Truly incredible work, by far the best sound mods for US locomotives hands down.

Very good sounds! sounds just like the real thing! But i think that notches 5 , 6 , 7 and 8 should be louder in the SD40-2! could you make them louder please?Also, could you please make this sound compatible with the UP SD40-2 in Cane creek and the GP40-2 in tsw2020?

These sound great. Will you be doing the same for the peninsula corridor, cane creek, and oakville sub locos as well?

Avatar of griggs
griggs 23 Aug 2021

I plan on doing oakville sub after the preservation update. I've refunded cane creek, and peninsula corridor doesn't hold enough interest. If you want to you're free to recompile my mod for them, I would like the credit if you want to upload it!

I don't have any modding experience unfortunately. Looking forward to when you do Oakville Sub

Will there be a mod for the dash 8?

Avatar of griggs
griggs 24 Aug 2021

Yes! Once I'm able to get available recordings I will make it, so far I only have the horn that I want to use. If people are OK with it I might use the AC4400CW's audio as a stopgap.

I'd certainly be OK with The AC44 sounds as an interim solution

Excellent sound pack! You have saved the AC4400 and Dash 8 for me. Many thanks.

What does today's update (22nd September) add or change? The details above only give info for the update in August.

Very minor fix to the C40-8W. Not worth anything new.

I was wondering how you go about modifying the UE4 files to add new sounds like you do, I understand UE4 to an extent

Awesome mod 😊 But after 4.26 only the AC4400CW ones are working for me. Is it only this one that's 4.26 compatible?

Avatar of Pikes Peak Railfanning

Do these work with the epic games version?

Could you tell me how to install this on the Epic Games version? I got the game for free when they made it free.

Just create a DLC folder in content and place you mod pak files there

I named the folder "DLC" and it still did not work. I have the Epic Games version.

Just wondering. After applying all sounds to CSX, I did a tutorial with SD40-2 and the breaks don't work anymore.

Hi, are you planning to port the sounds from the clinchfield SD40 to the expansion pack CSX-s SD40?

Does the C40 Horn Work? Because in game it doesnt work.

Can you make K5LA Horn For Sand Patch Grade?

What happened to the turbo sound in notches 3 , 4 and 5 in the CSX SD40? The turbo is barely audible. in clinchfield it sounded much better. is it something that happened during the porting of the sounds? could you please fix this to sound like clinchfield?

Personal preference. I like the different ones better and it adds some variety.

Avatar of Suryaaji R. Damarjati

hi! please do Horseshoe Curve GEVOS. 😁

I agree, the Horseshoe Curve GEVOs, really need improvement.
It would be great if you can work your sound magic again!👍🏻😀

I'm planning on it, going to pick up where I left off since I was going to send them to skyhook before I heard someone else already did such.

Hello griggs! could you please tell me why do you keep ignoring my comments for the SD40 sound?

Avatar of Arch
Arch 26 Apr 2022

Paris, not trying to be mean or anything but Griggs probably has a life outside of modding sounds all day. He can do what we wants but appreciate there is a sound mod in the first place to replace the not so good dtg sounds. if he chooses to fix it, then he fixes it. if not, just live with it :)

Arch , he has responded to other comments! i didn't say he must be modding sounds all day but he can give a simple answer so that we know what he will do! i appreciate there are mods but in this case unfortunately , i had to revert back to the stock dtg sound which is much better in these notches. besides , he had goten it right the first time! why not just port it as it was exactly in clinchfield? or tell us how to use the clinchfield sound in the CSX SD40? it makes no sense

Hi griggs. if it is possible to change some volumes id like to mention this. i think the AC44CWs prime mover is too quiet and the radiator fans are too loud. the traction motors are fine as they are. also the GP38s horn is waay too quiet. keep up the good work!

hey
first of all great work.
just one thing. i'm trying to make some wheel and joint sounds. do you plan on that in the future? or is it possible if you could show me what to do if it's not too much?
i'd appreciate it
thanks

Avatar of Official_NoobyPlays

i love these, but C40-8W sounds dont work
ive done all the steps, even the backup 'plan' to install the sounds, but they just dont work
how?

Hey, Just thought of this but would it be possible to add the compresser whoop sound because I noticed in the ES44 mod you did it was included but it was not included here? Mod sounds great

are these mods still compatible with tsw3? do y'all know?

Avatar of griggs

Should be, the engine hasn't changed. I should note that I haven't bought TSW3 so I'm unable to confirm myself.
