Old Style Diesel Car/Truck Sound Mod

by Scatman John
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

This one is pretty simple, it's the standard box_van_3.ivaud with it's volume tweaked around a little, giving it noisier acceleration, and much noisier idle than the vanilla file. Thankfully without the obnoxious reverse beeper and air brakes, so its much more proper for a civilian vehicle, such as an older Mercedes diesel.

Inspired by Carface80's 1989 Caprice Wagon car mod, reminded me of a similar car my parents had in the 90s with the crappy Oldsmobile diesel 350 :P

Since I mentioned it, here's a link to Carface's Caprice Wagon. Awesome mod, worth a look:

EDIT: Fixed a couple typos.
Replaces: BOX_VAN_3.ivaud = Speedo, Burito, Burito2, Moonbeam, Pony, Steed

Yeah i removed beeper cause i have moonbeam sound on old Chevy Special. recently i made louder diesel idle for dually truck, but you made it much louder, much better. Did you use compressor? I increased it 2.5db and it got in red already.

Oh it wasn't anything special, just trial and error with Goldwave. I kinda pushed the envelope on the sound, because GTA 4's system reduces it a lot when compared to the previews in the ivaud editor. Crank the volume a bit higher, it seems to work. I went in with Goldwave and doubled the idle sounds, then did 150% of that I think. The pieces of the sound file that aren't idle related I think I just doubled.

And I apologize for not having a video, I honestly have no clue how to make one. I know I hate that when I'm curious about a mod and I can't preview it first. If anyone out there likes this a lot and has the ability to make a video, I'd appreciate a link to it! :D

Get Fraps to make video. It's nice simple full screen app and desktop recorder. Bad thing is, it's making large avi files, 5min gets 2Gb i believe, so then you gonna need something to make smaller mp4 out of it. I use Adobe Prem. Lol, i remember the name Scatman John being on every cd compilation in Europe for quiet while in around 1995.
