This is by design. No issue here ;) Thank you for the feedback though!
Is it also by design that when you go from outside view to inside that only engine sound is lowered, it doesn't affect anything else, as for example ploving noise keeps same level, which is pretty odd.

I entirely agree with this.

If this is the “finished” state of the sound, You’ve got to be kidding? The sounds are fantastic quality..... but you can’t hear them! Please listen devs.... or at least give us the option. Our last hope is modders!

Just made an account to just post that if this is by design it is very bad design. It totally ruins the fun in driving the tractor.
Been playing FS since 2009, never had an issue with the sound and now the interior sound is much to low.
When I am inside the tractor I don't hear anything, when I'm outside close to the tractor I wake up the children, when I'm outside at some distance I also don't hear the tractor. Just a very very bad decision...

Guys wait ... Ok the sound maybe on some tractors is too low, but in the new ones in reality the sound is this. Have you ever got into a tractor cab? Going back to FS17 would be a mistake, for years we asked for the realistic indoor sound and now it's no longer good?

The engine and surface sounds are disappointing as a whole. I mean the engines in 17 sounded way better, more throaty when using full power. That sensation is totally gone now.
At some point in the development there was talk about shifting gear sounds, where are those? Where are the surface sounds, or are they so silent that I can't here them. Overal sound is, well,... not great... *thumbsdown*

Must agree with both of you, the constant turning the volume up & down to compensate for this "feature" is getting old real fast not just for me, but anyone in earshot of my PC including the cat :)

As LS09God pointed out, it's not just the volume issue either, the whole sounds are a massive backward step from FS17 and I will add that it doesn't stop with the sounds. When I saw the opening garage door in FS17 platinum map I thought great, we can expect this in FS19, but like the great sounds of FS17 that seems to have be thrown in the bin too, like the easy to access save & quit buttons that have now become a game of hide & seek with the clickfest that entails. I don't understand why. It's not in the interests of progress or realism.

Bit of a shame really as there are so many really great new features that have been very successfully implemented, now largely overshadowed by some not so well received decisions.

To end on a positive note, if we had a pair of earmuffs added to the character for those who like a quiet tractor and if the sunglasses would take away that nasty glare it could be fun ;)

Actually I drove in a few tractors, most the older model Deutz like the AgroStar, but not for the last 15 years. I agree with the realistic indoor sound but this a little bit to low, I play with relatively low volume because I don't live alone, my wife want's to hear the television. When I use the indoor camera I hear almost nothing, if this is by design, I can agree but I like to drive zoomed out so I can actually enjoy viewing my tractor with all the implements attached but I can't actually hear them. I never thougt about it this actually isn't really realistic but it never was a problem, at least for me but now I constantly have the urge to change volumes because something feels not quite right.

Why not give us the option to adjust it in game?

Believe it or not, but most cabs and passenger compartments are very quiet and isolated from outside noise. Its so they can work more efficiently

As a temporary fix for the engine sounds while in outside view (no time to fiddle with the rest) you can try the following;

Go into this folder X:\Farming Simulator 2019\data\sounds and open this file soundTemplates.xml in a text editor like https://notepad-plus-plus.org/ or notepad and find this line, line 426 in Notepad ++

<template name="DEFAULT_MOTOR" innerRadius="10.0" outerRadius="80.0" >

Change the innerRadius value to "40.0" then save. Line should look like this;

<template name="DEFAULT_MOTOR" innerRadius="40.0" outerRadius="80.0" >

NB

1.I use a PC so have no idea how to do this on another platform or if indeed it is even possible
2.Not multiplayer compatible.
3.Make a backup of your file. It will be overwritten with the up coming patch anyhow, but a back up is always a wise move.

While tweaking this it would appear that the distance the player is from a vehicle is linked to the zoom in relation to sound volume. This I think is all wrong.

Interesting how this suddenly changed from [WONT FIX] TO [KNOWN ISSUE]... just saying... :hmm:
