Thx for your contribution.  Will have to give 'em a go.  Tell me, are there reverser sounds included?  Those can be tricky (as well as other sounds) going from external to internal.

Yep, reversers included. Yes FS can be buggy with sounds, hope it works without problems on your system.

I'm working on a B777 now. So far I must say, it's beginning to sound nice, if I may say so...  B)

These sound great....thank you very much for your efforts with them.

 

However, my A320 AI are now silent after landing.......the sound works ok when airborne but after landing and on taxi in....no sound whatsoever, and this is what happens:

 

As they are on approach....fab sound,

Gear starts coming down....sound goes off

Gear down....sound comes back

Flaps start to extend...sound goes off

Flaps extended...sound comes back

 

Sound is ok then all the way to runway where just before touchdown the engine sound stops and the only sound my A320's then make is a brief reverse thrust...but then total silence all the way to gate!?!?

 

I'm using a mixture of A320's for my AI - Ultimate Traffic 2, FAIB (FSX native), DJC & EvolveAI and they all now display this behaviour.

 

I can confirm my installation is as the instructions...and that I can restore the original FSX sounds and reinstalling repeats this issue.

 

Any clues/ideas would be great.

 

Thanks again

 

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

I think I know what you mean. Did you maybe alter your aircraft.cfg files? I noticed the same problem when I changed the thrust_scalar to 1.5. I did this because the A320's were on full thrust on final approach. So I added a bit extra power, and now on final you hear the engines whining from middle thrust to idle  :smile: . With this extra power the plane taxiis on idle. 

The reason the sound fades on final is because the computer is controlling the plane (quite badly), and is turning throttle off. The problem is that I have idle sound to soft, when taxiing and when idle on final it is mute. I will fix this.

I am going to improve the A320 sound anyway, it can be made better with added idle backthrust and some minor adjustments.

Update coming soon. And the B777, think it sounds quite good

Can anyone confirm if these sounds will work with Ultimate Traffic 2 and if so how would I install them, would love to replace the  drone of the AI with something more realistic

I guess if your AI aircraft has a soundai folder it's the same routine. Sorry I'm not familiar with UT2.

Any advice on this ?

Yea, I messed around with AI sounds a few years back.  I think it was after AI Blast stopped working.  Discovered lots of littl' things such as you mention the engines go completely idle on landing so the sound cuts out.  Also discover only certain frequencies work good to hear the "thrust" of take-off of an AI plane or reversers when you are inside your own cockpit.   Same with flyovers... you can lose the sound entirely from inside.

 

But when you get  'em right they can sound a whole lot better than default.

Problems with the AVSIM Library server?

Please give these a try if you want, and tell me what you think  :unknw:.

So I know if I should make more.

Yea, no luck for me either on downloading.  May be an AVSIM issue.  Give 'em a hollar.

Will do...

The problem I find with fsx AI sounds is when there are too many instances of same type of aircraft they get messed up.

The problem I find with fsx AI sounds is when there are too many instances of same type of aircraft they get messed up.

That's why I made these very lightweight, just a few wav files, but that's enough for great sound.

The problems I encountered are that when AI is taxiing and you're switching views, some sounds go full volume, it must be a bug in FS. In flight always works fine.

Hello! great aisounds! for me, they are the best. Realistic, and very soft. :)

could i put on airbus 319 the same than 320?

i mean: can i use them for another models?

it would be great you could design for a330, or 737 etc..

thanks again!:)

Thank you! You can use them for any aircraft, as long as they are jets. Later on you can replace them with my new 737 etc, when I have those ready.
