    Default Why is the horn sound common?

    Hello, everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am confused about this.
    I downloaded Hugh Reilly's ATSF, NS, CN, and BNSF C44-9Ws as well as NALW's Big Blow Turbine and the horns and bells from HR_D9 and HR_GE sound like the horn and bell used on the 3DTS Cajon Pass UP and SP SD70Ms. Why is the horn sound common?

    The common.xxxxxxxxx folder system was developed to A:- save disc space and B:- make thing easier to find when you want to add a specific sound set or horn to a model.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.

    No I mean why are the horn sounds from HR GE the same as the 3DTS SD70M Models?
    The BNSF Dash 9 aliases sound to HR_GE but the 3DTS SD70M has its own.

    The WAV file played by the HR_D9 SMSs is sd70_horn.wav.

    Couldn't tell you why it [sd70m_horn.wav from 3DTS] became so widely used, considering it isn't all that great. If you're like me and change all the horns to suit the engine in question, it doesn't really matter what comes with the pack unless it matches what you're looking for. As baldwin said, common cab and sound folders a a great way to save space and make things much easier to find
