Beta 3.0L Diesel Sound For Van (Gavril-H) 1.221

An authentic, 3.0L Diesel sound for the van to make it sound more...diesely? Yeah.

  1. Tronadorous

    A more diesel van sound for the van that i've created from a multitude of different resources. Recorded from a combination of audio from a 2.8 D 3.0L Toyota Hilux sound, with a bit of added rattle.

    Still WIP but in a state currently were it works, and IMO sounds, really nice and well suited to the Van!

    Coming up in future releases I'll have a more "Diesel Transit" sound from a Ford Transit, years ranging from 2003-2009 for that extra "UK white van man" racket!

    I won't just be focusing on Diesel sounds, I have plenty of variety coming up in the future.

    To hear the engine/select it correctly, load any Gavril-H, go to engine and select the "3.0L Diesel Engine" from the drop down and absolutely, if possible, use more with a Manual trans than a Auto.

    *If anyone feels like the want to contribute sounds from there own vehicles, please get in touch with details of what I require and your vehicle engine sound could well make it in game. See development thread for project vehicles i'm on the hunt for*

    Soon, I hope to have a Patreon page set up with exclusive behind the scenes stuff, how i do what I do, sample sounds and even rewards for those that contribute their own vehicle sounds for me to mod which is great way for me to give back to those generous contributions.


    - Another pass of reducing sample volume, fixing as many pops and crackles as possible and smoothing the band EVEN more. Final version.

    - QOL changes, see update notes, possibly final update (in moderation)

    - Better over rev sound, bit more treble added, lowered bass slighly

    1.0 - Initial Release

    Suggested Mods

    Coming soon, hope to make this work with the excellent "Customizable Engines and Drivetrains" by warkus for all your fiddling needs!

    I like the sound! I think it sort of sounds like a small aircraft if you are far away from it although I am sure planes do not use I6 diesel engines. :p

    Putting this to the ambulance H-series makes the thing scream like an old Transit on a heavy uphill. Very good job.

      I know right? Despite being a more modern engine I really do love the sound these samples generate in the long roads, up hill and racing, such good fun.

      Yes indeed! I havn't played with engine data much yet but at least there are plenty of nice engines to use on these forums/repo. What I may do...is find a way to make it so whatever the engine data you have installed, if you have one of my sounds mods installed you can select it from a drop down no problem. Will have to look into this in the future.

    You have managed to catch the H-Series' essence in this sound mod perfectly.

      You reckon? Thanks :), I only made the transitions smoother and it sound a little less blaring and bit more trebly, every little helps i guess, many thanks :).

      Many thanks :). That can be arranged this week for the most part. I am toying with plenty of sounds though, head over to my dev thread for details :).
