Hello

I like the Simutrans sounds of truck engines, etc., but I have not been able to activate these sounds in Pak128.Britain.  The buttons in the Options box for music work, and I can hear the music, but the "mute" button for "sound volume" remains depressed no matter how many times I click it and there are no background sounds.  Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thank you in advance.

This pakset has largely omitted the sounds by design choice. My own preference is to have more sounds, but only if higher quality sounds can be found with a suitable licence.

I see. Thank you for answering so quickly!

I should note that, for the Extended version of this pakset, I have now been adding quite a few vehicle sound effects, having found some suitable sound effects on the freesound.org website and also obtaining permission of various people on Youtube to use sound clips from their footage as sound effects.

Instead of starting a new thread, I thought I should just add to the one I already created years ago.

I have music in the regular Pak128 Britain and in the version of Pak128 Britain that comes with Simutrans-Extended, but there are still no vehicle sounds, even when I zoom in as close as possible. Does anyone else have this issue? Am I doing something wrong with my settings?

I downloaded Simutrans-Extended a couple days ago, and I downloaded the latest version of Simutrans-Standard today.

pak128.Britain in standard does not include any sound files.
The only vehciles which request a sound are some planes, with these two sounds
sound=planelow.wav
sound=aircraft-jet_stop.wav
But since no sound folder is included, no sounds are played, even for tools.

I copied the tool sounds form pak64, some environmental sounds from pak63, planelow.wav from pak64 and jetpstop from pak128. So planes, clicks and the ea, forest and arctic will have sounds in the next release. However, you can just copy the content of pak64 fodler manually for almost the same effect with the current pak.

Ok, thank you.

There are also no sounds except tool actions in standard pak128. But music works fine in pak128.
