Euro Truck Simulator 2 Mods: Enhanced Truck Sound Plugin – Alpha 1
Choose one of the original Scania trucks (R or Streamline). Reason for this is that I’m a lazy cock.
“TruckSoundPluginDeps.scs” currently only silences those original sounds. Plugin will work just fine with any other truck, but you will hear both sounds (original + new).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Disable any other sound mods which could interfere with Scania volumes. If you have mods named as “zzzzz..something.scs”, then rename my file to have more “zzz..s”, like “zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzTruckSoundPluginDeps.scs”. You definitely want it to be the last one loaded.
If you happen to have an ingame console activated then you can use “sdk unload” + “sdk reload” commands to disable/enable the plugin. Just in case you want to drive the Iveco :geek:
PS: I’m looking for a volunteer, who could modify (nullify) volumes for all other trucks + some most popular addon rigs. PM me.
Big thanks go to (in no particular order):
Cadde for being active in general and providing valuable solutions to compatibility issues.
Five_Tech aka. Tomass for being a good man and helping me out with an Alpha test.
SCS team for making a great and moddable game.
Mr. Kriechbaum for some of the sound loops I probably nicked from one of his excellent mods.
How to install
It is a three step process:
Extract the zip archive somewhere of your free choice.
Blink your left eye to make the process less dull.
Copy “plugins” folder from the zip to where the “eurotrucks2.exe” resides.
In my case (Steam version) it is at “C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Euro Truck Simulator 2\bin\win_x86”.
If you are using a non-steam ETS2 for the reasons unknown, then it should be somewhere in “Program Files” or similar.
The folder you are after is “\bin\win_x86” under your ETS2 installation.
NOTE: Copy the “plugins” folder itself, not just it’s contents. If you happened to have a /plugins folder already then merge their contents.
While it copies, put your fingers together and take a deep breath from the north-west direction.
Copy “TruckSoundPluginDeps.scs” to your mods folder. You most likely know where to find that…
…which is at “C:\Users\yournamehere\Documents\Euro Truck Simulator 2\mod”.
Look over your left shoulder to your right ankle to validate the cluster integrity.
IF PROBLEMS ARISE
If installation went well you should now see an in-game message about “SDK features being requested”.
If you don’t see this and all you get is a silence (except truck starter/shutdown sounds), then install the official Visual C++ runtime from here. Choose the 32 bit version despite you might be running an x64 Windows.
