    Good afternoon all,

    Does anyone know if there is some kind of add-on/DLC or mod that adds platform announcements to TS2021, specifically the just trains western mainlines?

    Thanks for any help.

    I believe you can but it would be something along the following lines:
    • Amend the route so that before each station there is a point where the "The next station is:" announcement would be triggered
    • Amend the route so that just each platform there is a point where the "This station is:" announcement would be triggered
    • Amend the route so that at the end of each platform there is a point where the "This service is:" announcement would be triggered
    • Record all the announcements into individual sound files
    • Write the scripts to be triggered which play the correct sounds from the correct sound points on the consist (which may not exist so you might have to add them too)
    There are probably more steps but that's the very basics of it

    That's only a case of where the sound comes from... You'd still need something to trigger the announcements, either that or have random ones going off at all times.

    Are we talking about station public address announcements or in train announcements here?
    Whichever it would be difficult to cover all services, times, destinations etc. The JT ECML North has generic announcements at some stations which adds a bit of atmosphere.

    yeah I might see if I can use those sound files in the western mainlines route.

    I mean public address announcements about security services destroying unattended luggage and stuff

    Well they do tend to go off at random times anyway... I would imagine they would only be going off when those tiles were loaded if you got it working too

    so I noticed there is already a sound file in the Paddington area with station announcements, but they are so quite you can barely hear them, does any of you know how to turn up the volume on these sound objects
