Introduction
As you might know there was a sound replacement project that had replaced about half of the sounds, but then sadly enough died. Now OpenGFX seems to be nearing its completion, missing a free sound replacement set becomes a bigger issue.

As a result I've restarted the sound replacement project again. OpenTTD's (recent) nightlies (and the upcoming 0.8 releases) support loading custom sample packs in the same way as OpenGFX. This removes a major obstacle of the previous attempt(s): no real support of OpenTTD.

OpenSFX development
Finally I have created, with the help of the #openttdcoop guys, a repository/tracker for the sound replacement pack. I've called the replacement pack OpenSFX and can be found at http://dev.openttdcoop.org/projects/opensfx. I already added all samples from http://wiki.openttd.org/Sound_Effects_Replacement that had a proper license and sounded decent. I also created a ticket/issue for each of the missing samples and hope that you can help finding/creating a suitable sample for the pack.

I suggest that we use the Creative Commons Sampling+ 1.0 License as all existing samples are released under that license, which makes it the easiest for all. Please mention the author and the samples you took and (re)mixed, so we can properly credit them too.

I am aware that a number of the existing samples aren't that good, so at the moment I'm looking for people who have some skill with editing/mixing/creating the audio samples that are willing to help to improve and finish the set.

OpenSFX downloads
At the moment the latest 'release' is 0.2.0, which replaces almost all of the samples. You can download the release from either the in-game content download system or http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/opensfx/releases/
Nightlies can be found at: http://bundles.openttdcoop.org/opensfx/nightlies/

Hmm, nice, just another step further to making openttd no longer require the TTDx Grfs

BTW, the content down loader doesn't show this yet even though you said its down loadable from it

I guess you're using a tool old nightly or not a nightly at all.

Yeah, just relised that, I was using v0.7.2

Anyways, this is ok, though it would be cool if a default running sound could be added for sets that dont have running sounds (though, not sure about planes, trucks\buses\trams, and ships)

Will users be required to use this SFX set, rather than the original one?

Yes. They'll also force you to drink pepsi instead of coke and wear a pink tutu instead of whatever you prefer to wear.

No, the latest nightlies have the option just under the graphics set option, here you can choose a SFX set you have (original, no sounds, openSFX)

That's not in the scope of this set. It doesn't add anything that isn't in the TTD sample.cat, except some freedom.

This is a little bit late, but Congratulations on finishing

First of all, thank you for doing this. Being independent from the original TTD is a big step I think.

But there is one thing that just bugs me everytime I play. The sawmill sound is just ugly... way to loud and repeats itself too often (especially when playing fast forward).
Is there a way, except disabling all sounds, to get rid of the sawmill sound, or to make it occur less?
Thanks for any advice in this matter!

How about the empty sample.cat which has no sound, freely available from your local Content Download Service.

err... is that just me or does that almost fall into the same category as buying "air guitars" and "wlan cables" from ebay? :p

No, that's quite accurate here, that impression. The funny thing is: obviously you can sell them ;-)

Sorry. I was suffering from a lack of caffine.
But if you load up your Content Download Service, look where OpenSFX and OpenGFX are, and in between is NoSound. It really does exist, honest.

I know :-)

And it even makes sense somewhat. Still, it's a lot of wrapping for basically nothing. Nearly(?) the same could be achieved by just creating 0 byte sized file with the name 'sample.cat'.

Uh, you may have missed this:

I suppose though, there is no other solution to my problem. Sounds are nice, except sawmill sound. I will just have to live with it, it seems.

You can also help trying to find a better sound for the sawmill or 'remix' the current sample so it becomes less annoying. That's the benefit of it being open; you can help and fix whatever you think is wrong.

If I had any knowledge on how to do this (resample) I would gladly do. I also looked around (using google mainly) for another sound, but found nothing usable.

Well, for one, two things you might find useful
1. the catcodec, you run this in the command line with C:\(Path)\CATCODEC.EXE -d sample.cat
This will extract all the sound samples from what ever sample.cat you hhave in the same folder with catcodec
2. dbPowerAmp
You can use this tool to encode to wave close enough that the catcodec will accept it. THough the game will still complain when you compile the sample.cat with slightly differnt .wav sounds

How thoroughly have you scoured the freesound project? ie. is it worth me doing a trawl for potential toyland sfx there?
