Need For Speed Carbon - Skid Audio Reduction Mod


This script aims to reduce Carbon's infamously terrible tire screeching sound effects to a more reasonable level. It sets all skidaudio values to roughly 40% of the vanilla game, meaning you'll still here some tire skids, just not in every little turn. However, for those that love to burn rubber, I've included the option to set Drift mode skids to 80% volume.

Original credit goes to Reameb, this is a tweak of his mod!
