Temporary Engine Sounds

Post by Tailspin45 » 22 Jun 2018, 23:55

Found a temporary replacement for the engine sounds at flightsim.com.

With over 1000 hours behind a real 1340 I wanted something that sounds good while we wait for the finished product here which, I'm sure, will be superb.

The freeware package I found is for a Ford Tri-Motor that had three 1340s, but comes with instructions and sound cfg files for a single-engine aircraft.

The file is called tweakedfordtri-motorsounds.zip

Remember, it's freeware and not part of the wing42 Vega package--just my suggestion if you're looking for something that sounds a little more authentic. The idle sound is indistinguishable from the real thing, at least to me.

I can recommend this. The soundset is a modification of the original MS FS9 sounds for the Trimotor - the author gave the sounds a bit of an oomph (professional term, as Tailspin pointed out :D ).

Just make sure to follow the procedures for the single engine configuration!

And worry not! Our own sound is coming in a future update! 8-)

Tom,

Thanks for this. Before I attempt to install (to make sure I don't screw it up...which I am usually very good at...can I get more detail on making the sound change. I understand the mod to use single engine but not sure about some things as follows:
  • Do I just throw away the existing Vega Sound Folder and replace with the Ford Sound Folder (after modifying for single engine and the .cfg file)?
    If not a complete replacement...what is the procedure?
Thanks for your help.

My suggestion is to rename the current sound folder to 'sound-backup' (or whatever). That way you keep a copy, in case you don't like the new soundset. Next, create a new folder 'sound' in the Vega's folder. Copy the sound files from the zip file into this new folder, but skip all files that have a 'right' or 'center' suffix (e.g. 'ford_noncombust_outboard_left'). Go to the 'Single engine config file' folder in the zip file and copy the 'sound.cfg' to the new sound folder.

That's it! 8-)
