While lying in bed and motivating myself to get up in the morning, I always think about things.
This morning I thought about the track joints sounds I can hear in the #5 passenger view but nowhere else in ORTS.
So I moved it into this ICE-3 leading *.ENG file and after using it's Shape.S and adjusting it's camera movements now have a forward view from the lead engine car with track joints sounds but not in an outside camera view.
So somebody in the ORTS team knows how to make these SMS files work in ORTS.
One problem with that, ORTS reads only the first #5 Passenger view it can find in a consist which has them in it's *.WAG files, but the F9 Driveraid not working like it does in MSTS no individual wagon can be selected to show it's Passenger view !
Then I had another thought. The track joints sounds being audible in the Passenger view, replace the contents of the ICEeng, cab and out.sms files with the contents from my distance moded RailWaves In and OUT*.sms and I can hear track joints sound inside the cab and out again !
Mind you I lost the horn and other in-cab sounds but they could be added again to the moded by me ICE*.sms and merged with the track joints sounds parameters.
This could be one way of coding all SMS files in locations which ORTS is aware of and can read their contents with it's source code like it does in the ICE's #5 Passenger view's ICE3Pas.sms ?
