I dont think it could sound like that unless somebody can make an advance script where you can use more than one sample onload and off load. I guess only Giucam could do such script.

here's a thread where the developper describe how it could be scripted.

That thread is interesting, it looks like all it needs is indeed setting the pitch and volumes of the samples only. I'll give it a try one of these days.

If anyone wants I have access to very good recorders and several loud cars. I could take samples at every 1k rpm. I'd need a wind cover first because the Mic's on my tascam are super sensitive.

I'm getting a quite good sound now with the samples from sonory.org above. The method explained in that thread doesn't work so good since you can distinctly hear when it changes samples, so instead of using only the two samples above and below the rpm value, i use a Cauchy-ish function to set the volumes of all the samples,
This way also samples of very-ish different rpm values than the current one have a little volume, which gets bigger as the engine rpm comes nearer to it.

I've yet to try it in Outerra, but it should work all right. I recorded a snippet of the sound though: https://www.dropbox.com/s/j75nbyi0j0b4va4/v8.ogg

I have a question for cameni though: is it playing sounds relatively heavy? Should i stop the samples with volume near 0 instead of letting them run, or is it not worth the effort?

Yep sound pretty good already. How many samples did you use?

We can optimize that out internally. Actually, once there's a decent model of sound mixing, we can implement it directly into the vehicle interface.

That snippet was done with 7 'on' samples and 7 'off'.

 I just imagine the number of  lines it will take to use 62 samples in the vehicle script ;D
