SET TIRE AND WIND VOLUME
Wind and tire noise too loud? No problem. You can configure its volume using these developer commands. Syntax is as follows:
s_air_noise [value from 0.0 to 1.0] (default is 1)
s_wheel_noise [value from 0.0 to 1.0] (default is 1)
In most cases, mod requires highest priority in Mod Manager, above map mods, environmental mods and AI traffic mods.
If other mods are placed in higher priority than this mod, correct operation of pack not guaranteed and results may vary.
