I'm pretty new to OpenTTD. It has been a lot of fun to play with and try some of the NewGRF's. For the last few weeks I've been using US Town Names 1.0, NARS 2.52, and Total Town Replacement Set 3.14 on OpenTTD 1.11.2.
Today, I've started hearing "bomb" sound effects, like when I clear terrain, but I'm not doing it. In my present game I only have trains. No planes, boats, etc. My train list doesn't have anything in red or missing numbers, so I don't think it is a crash (if crashes even use the same sound effect). My settings for Sound->Disasters/Accidents is On, but Disasters/accidents -> Disasters is Off. Is there a way to get OpenTTD to show me or highlight/flash where on the map sounds are happening, or where the most recent sound came from? (Maybe my cities are demolishing their buildings? That would be fun to see).
I found what was happening. It was a double boom, and occurs when a city demolishes a tower to create a new building. I haven't seen the explosion, but I have seen the excavator-and-dump trucks aftermath. I got lucky - I was zoomed in on an area planning something, heard the double boom, and saw the result. I missed the explosion though.
My basic question still stands. Other than lucking out as I just did, is there a way to get a visual indicator (e.g., big flashing something-or-other) that corresponds to the source of an audible?
What you are experiencing is a 'feature' of TTRS; there are buildings that implode (including making noise), then they are rebuilt ...
