= Victor's Sound Mod (VSM) Version 7.5 =
« on: April 30, 2020, 08:02:53 PM »



=====================================================================================================================
Greetings again, my dears!

It's been yet another hot minute since I last came forth with an update on my audio work. Thankfully, recent developments have given me the time and essentials to keep my creative gears rolling. After a year and a half, I am extremely happy to report VSM 7.5 is complete!

Designed with WW2 era modpacks specifically in mind, I cranked out an overhaul to the engaging aural experience for anyone looking to improve IL-2's soundscape. This time around, newer and more refined engine audio samples have been put into the framework of the mod. Having gathered bites from countless airshow videos and online sound sources, as well as assets from audio gods like Jafa and Tiger33, I've provided myself the nuts and bolts to give my mod a new breath of fresh air.

The result is a complete set of replacement engine sounds that will put any of the stock sounds to shame. You really must hear the new DB 600, BMW 801, Merlin, and Allison sounds - They are music for the ears! Don't forget the thunderous roar of US Radial engines - These will power through the skies with brute force! The Russian and Japanese piston engines have that familiar cool growl from the previous releases, but have been further refined and tweaked for greater flavor to your auditory senses! As for any familiar sounding engine sets, they too have been retouched in ways that bring out a greater taste!

All in all, the engine sounds in this version have been heavily polished and balanced to provide the best sound immersion possible, and I think you will enjoy them. Dare I say, I managed to make this mod even MORE fly-by worthy, without any classfile trickery of any sort! And as per tradition of SAS modding, all sounds are sampled at 22 kHz in Mono, for efficient operation and downloading!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the advent of it's own new buttons file and tools (courtesy of FL2070), I have made an even wider array of engine sounds to ensure diversity among IL-2's sound sets in the FMD and EMD files! Now with VSM 7.5 you'll get to hear more unique and distinctive engines at work, boasting a number of more than 40 new engine audio presets! To get an idea of the variety you can expect, here's a list of aircraft families ( to name a few ;) ) you should consider trying out now:

- DBM-3
- Mig 3
- PBY Catalina
- Bristol Blenheim
- Gloster Gladiator
- DeHavilland Mosquito
- Avro Lancaster
- Fokker DX
- Ki-45
- G4M
- BF109C and D
- BF110s
- Junkers-52
- Ju88
- He-111
- P-39 and P-63
- Hawk 75 and P-36
- R-5
- I16
- MC202
- Ki-46
- MS406
- D3A1
- B5N
- B-17 and B-24
- C-47 and DC-3
- F4U Corsair
- TBF/M Avenger
- Hawker Hurricane
- SBD Dauntless
- F2A2 Buffalo
- P-26
- Ki-27
- A5M4
- CW-21
- Lockheed Electra
- Ilyusin IL-2
- Peshka Pe-2-8
- Grumman J2F Duck
- Grumman Goose
- North American AT-6 Texan
- Enhanced sound sets for Spitfires, Messerschmidts, Mustangs, Warhawks, Focke Wulfs, Zeros
- and lots more...

Trust me, this is only a little list I can muster the energy to write for. You simply have to try and discover the rest on your own! Try out ALL the aircraft on your roster! I swear, you can make a virtual airshow with this stuff. You won't be let down. ~ ^^

VSM - v7.5 - UPDATED 1: (28/6/2023)



= VSM 7.5 WORKS MAINLY ON 4.12 MOD INSTALLS. It has been tested on VP ModPack and BAT: #World at War. It works without problems there.
- Just open the .ZIP and drop the ! VSM Sound Mod v7.5 into your MODS folder (depending on your respective 4.12 mod installation: VPModPack or BAT: #World At War) and enjoy!

--->>> https://drive.google.com/file/d/1twZBXp3q4UAIrklAL-dYsLJj1zAIYwSf/view?usp=sharing <<<---   <--- !!LINK TO DOWNLOAD HERE!!

-NOTE:-
VSM 7.5 should work on other non-4.12 mod installs, as long as you delete the "gui" folder and the "FM" files located in the main "! VSM Sound Mod v7.5" folder. This mod's own buttons file and custom FMs haven't been tested on non-4.12 mods yet, which is why I give this little safety warning to avoid conflicts, crashes, issues, etc.

-LAST NOTE:-

You may not fully enjoy the sounds this mod has to offer if your mods folder has other sound mods in it. Disable or delete them so your game loads and reads VSM 7.5's files when playing.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And so with that, I'll be taking a break from this project (at least until I'm bitten by the sound modding bug for this game another time haha!) Once again, thank you all so much for the years of support and encouragement that led to this mod's growth! I hope you all enjoy hearing the song of these warbirds as much as I had in making them happen! Happy flying!

Onward and upward! ^_^

You sure?

I could work on a fix for that, though some jet presets are glitchy in their classfiles or code.

Some P-80 fighters have their corresponding working presets, while some of them use an older, more outdated sound format in IL-2's code.

Can confirm VSM7 contains only one J42 sample:


Fix is to copy samples from VSM6 JTW.
