The Howler Alarm is a block from IC2 Nuclear Control. It is used to emit a loud siren noise when powered with a redstone signal. It is often used to warn users of overheating Nuclear Reactors, although it has frequently been used in pranks[1]. The Howler, unlike its counterpart, the Industrial Alarm, features the ability to select from two default sirens, along with other custom sounds that the user can add.

Dyeing[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

As of version 2.3.0a-Butt, the Howler Alarm can be dyed various colors. Right-clicking it with an Ore Dictionary-supporting dye or a Painter will dye it the corresponding color.

Adding custom alarm sounds[(editsection)(pipe-separator)(visualeditor-ca-editsource-section)]

To add new sound the player needs to unzip the mod file, copy the sound file (in alarm-<name>.ogg format) to assets\nuclearcontrol\sounds\ folder and update the file sounds.json with a new line:

"alarm-<name>": {"category": "master","sounds": [{"name": "alarm-***","stream": false}]},

Also the player will need to add this file to mod config file (config\IC2NuclearControl.cfg):

S:allowedAlarms=default,sci-fi,***

The folder can then be zipped back into a jar file again or used as is.
