Brutal Environment HD + Sound Engine v1.21
I tried an earlier version of Brutal Environment HD Sound Engine Premium mod some time ago. I was not happy with the way the mod, it had changed the sound of the engine’s in my trucks. So I there for removed the mod at that time.
So when I was asked to try this mod, I said why not. This is a really nice mod, although again the engine sound is different still, but it is not bad.
It is nice to have a Environment mod that is not going to steel your FPS rate. So I am liking this mod. I have found that the graphics is nice and clear with this mod, although I have not seen any wild life, I am sure that it is there some where.
I drove from Germany to Moscow Russia with this mod turned on, I drove through some rain storms, and I will tell you that the thunder sound was almost like the real thing. That was great, the rain sound was like the real rain coming down and hitting the truck.
So would I recommend this mod. YES.
What’s new in this version?
- More optimizing 720p and 1080p screen resolutions
- More sounds the “only brutal sound engine”
- Volume lower noise exterior sounds
- New rain skybox
- Blur Parameters reduced
- Many surprise
- My 5000 HP test engine repair and extended Scania v8
- HDR optimization
Note: Please OFF the Color Correction in your game Settings.

please make 1.11x support
it already is, I used this same version on 1.10, 1.11 and 1.12
Great mod but why for the love of good did you put in Good Year tiers in this it looks silly that all the trucks have them as default. Sadly that why I’m not using it but would love it if you can remove that feature.
Remove the Good Year tire color of the trailers, its soooooo ugly. and the sound mod isnt so good either but i removed it manually. everything else is very good, just waiting for update….
Can you tell us how you removed the Goodyear tires ? Thx !
When I upgraded my wheels, the upgraded ones did not have the white writing.
The truck skin in the previews there looks awesome. Anyone know if it’s publically available?
I would make a request to the creator of the mod, it would be possible to include in the next release a mod for the sound of the tires? Thank you.
Another thing, the internal sound of the engine is lower than the latest version. Would have some possibility I edit this? Congratulations Mod is wonderful.
Not sure why it’s listed a 1.14 compatible, I’ve got it and it will not load up with a 1.14 profile.
Which link did you use? Works fine for me on my 1.14 :).
This mod also adds just sound or graphics changes? I already have some other graphic mode and I do not know if it will be compatible
It does not work with other graphic mods :(.
I can confirm it works with the latest True AI Lights mod flawlessly. Said mod is positioned lower (loaded afterwards).
In case of doubt, it’s always learning by doing, trial and error. Since Mod management has become a lot more user friendly (compared to GTS) you can hardly do any serious damage that you could not reverse with a single click.
please use an alternative file share – not everyone wants to use google chrome…. can’t download unless I install one of the specified browsers chrome, firefox, opera
I think it’s because of your internet connection. I can download from MEGA with all my internet browsers!
Sorted… it is because of the file size unless you are downloading with one of the specified browsers. I am using IE11 (Windows 7 SP1) and Mega wouldn’t let me download this file – says the browser needs updating as it is ‘out of date’. I did successfully download a smaller file from Mega using IE11 without any problems. Just for your info as this restriction may affect the number of downloads.
I got it.
But these are links from the author. I cannot re-upload them :(.
Oh right – no probs… appreciate your quick response though… 🙂
Just for feedback purposes since you can’t fix it: My Computer may be 4 years old, but my connection is top notch. Using the plugin, it took me several attempts to download the files. The problem is that the download would suddenly stop at around 86 percent and simply hang up. Mega might be operating with DOS: Denial Of Service…
It doesn’t depend on the browser. In many different browser in 99% show error, so only re-upload help us not change browser.
Have you tried to install MEGA plugin for your browser?
MEGA Plugin? I download many files from MEGA without MEGA Plugin in Chrome
Yes I know, but it can fix this problem sometimes.
Thanks for the mod, it works for tsm, promods, winter map, and all other map mods.
It also works for weather reload r4 for v1.13.x, v1.12.x and v1.11.x users only…
works with MHA EU pro map or not?
my game crashed when use this mod and mha eu pro map
This is surprisingly beautiful, but I don’t really like the bad weather in the evening, quite looks unrealistic, clouds too bright to see in the dark during bad weather. In the morning it’s okay. What I like from this mod is the colors of the ets2 world map has improved, looking more interesting with this map mod.
At version v1.13 I together used this mod with the Weather Reload r4 and no bugs and conflicts and crashes have occurred and that made the scenery and weather look better!
Overall I’ll give this as 4/5 😀
One of my favorite mods :D.
Like you, I don’t like the bad weather in the evening haha.
where you get that scania truck skin?
Hi Will, can you tell me a mod to get the unrealistic-looking rain fixed?
I am using “ZX-Brutal-Environment-ONLY-HD-GRAPHIC-ENGINE-Gold-+-yrl-by-Stewen.scs” with ets2 1.14.2s, and I have tried “Rain_Fog_HD_Add_On_V2.2_For_Brutal_Environment_By_Kass” but that just crashes the game.
IWR mod is good at that but with brutal env, I find that at night, the driving is smoother under street lights, well at least in my machine :~)
New re-upload this mod: https://mega.co.nz/#!6sISVYrZ!tFVbIS4urbQ1lCQ99tyRQqQ8RtjF52-5palP6vbiSVY
Thank you so much.
Now with the “Gold Premium” one.
With the new version this mod became better. First of all I have heard a better sound engine. Driving with my Iveco Hi-Way the mod changed the sound of the horn. Realistic exhaust brakes and sound effects. High quality sounds I have heard, very, very great.
The scenery and texture had a higher saturation, which enhances the color of the game. Very cool. Very nice to see the landscape at morning midst (with my Weather Reload R5.)
Many sounds have changed, even weather, but it is compatible with other realistic weather sound mods. Glad the developer fixed the bugs and not only that I was able to play the game much smoother than before.
Great mod. Works for v1.14 & v1.15
Great review dude!
This time, I am the one to thank you for the review. I’m gonna add my two cents as soon as I’m done testing. Cheers!
which better ? sweetfx or brutal enviroment?
These mod are great! Just pick the mod which you like most!
Will, the headline for the download link “Full Version” needs to be changed to Only Graphics Version, or better, drop the word Only from both headers. I explained above.
can’t hear the air brakes ?!!

Most links are Mega and there are ALL GOOD Links (thumbs up!)
The “Full Version” link does NOT contain the Full version, but the graphics portion only, so you have to download both files if you want to use both of them.
If you have soundmods for some of your standard trucks and you wish them to keep working, put them BELOW the Brutal Sound Mod (by adding leading Zs to the name), or, if you know how, delete the unwanted portions from the Brutal mod. Vice versa, if you wanna give the Engine sounds from Brutal a try, either deactivate your other soundmods or put the Brutal mod BELOW your soundmods as described above.
Graphics look like in comic. I don’t like it.

Your installation instructions aren’t correct. I’ve unzipped and searched through the files of the FULL Ver. and there is no .scs file?? What am I missing here?
The file is scs file already, you don’t have to extract it! See!
I figured it out lol. I was missing something, my brain 😉 Ty bud
You are very welcome!
Any chance of an option without stripes on the tires and without the lamps on the floor the night? Thanks.
I tried it and I love the AI sound especially the trucks, but I don’t like the interior sound, it’s waaaaayy too loud that I can’t hear indicator’s sound, retarder. and it’s hard to hear the music. I think it’s lot better if it doesn’t change the interior sound. Oh and I only use ‘ONLY sound’ mod without the ‘External sound’ mod.
after selecting the mod in profile settings and selecting continue for playing game, the ets2 crashes everytime, no other mod is used. please help!!!
Have you tried to create new profile?
Oh yes, I have tried that too , it crashed , my original game is of steam and cracked.
Your game version is 1.17?
1.16.2s , if you have the link for update to 1.17 please share , steam version dlc update
That’s why it crashes. This version is for 1.17 mate
link please to update to 1.17 for cracked setup!!
Try using FAEL environment with Internal Weather Reload for game v1.16.x.
I used this mod and found it to be exaggeration of facts – leveled up everything. Even night looks like a fairy tale, but two things I really liked about it are the lower FPS pressure at night and cracking thunders.
One of the best mods for Euro Truck Simulator 2!
Is this mod compatible with TSM 6.0.1??
Sure mate. It works fine with almost maps!
Thank you soo much!! I will try it 🙂 greetings mate
Tested this mod and found that I couldn’t really take it seriously. It replaces the default tires to Goodyear tires for trucks and trailers in the game which is pretty unrealistic when you see so many of them. Also the red crash barrier reflectors are so thinly spaced together that it looks ridiculous and unrealistic. The orange ones are okay though. Also the grass and vegetation has been further saturated which makes it look like perfect grass, when really it’s not going to stay like that in real life.
What I did like about this mod is the addition of a rainbow to the skybox. I would recommend the author to split up the HD engine part of the mod (or tell us how to edit out a part of the mod) so people can enjoy what aspects they like about the mod.
Ya I know this mod adds some stuffs in game that a lot of players don’t like. But I love the color effects.
i have driven at night from london to hull and i did watch the sunrise on the hull bridge..well this mode gives a graphic that it’s awesome! :):) ..just a question..but the green leds in the middle of the roads (crash barriers) have been removed? o.o..in england i didn’t see them
WOW i haven’t noticed that before.
Yep this is an awesome mod. I love it!
Right, I’ll test this tomorrow, and replace this comment with a review!
