This voobly mod and others work the most possibly simple:
Age Of Empires 2 The Conquerors\Voobly Mods\AOC\Local Mods\Wololo\drs\5497.wav

(-The sound is put in place only by its filename, no other code needed)

So how do we know the other numbers to replace another specific sound?

I think the whole list should be published under keyword
"documentation" (of age of empires 2 voobly mod creation )

Making a full documentation from all files (thousands of files) would be a too big and unnecessary job.

Just download the [You must login to view link] and you can surf in \Age of Empires II\Data\.drs files for all ingame sounds. With [You must login to view link] (sorted as AGE) you can search more specific.

You want the mining camp's select sound:
  1. Search for Mining Camp in AGE at Units (id: 584)
  2. Scroll down and you see sounds - you need Selection Sounds (447)
  3. Switch to Sounds and in the 447 sound you can see mcamp.wav (this used for aoeHD) and the DRS code: 5926
  4. With Turtle Pack open the sounds.drs and you just have to find the 5926

Some sounds are not able to find via AGE, like age ups or warnings.

I'm looking to calm the notification/alert sound of being under attack and optionally some more ones of dying and sword/metal/explosion

Turtle pack list has gaps:
(Exploring sounds.drs and sounds_x1.drs)

Genie Editor knows about more sounds yet also wont play those not shown in turtle pack
("No such sound")
371 TDONK.wave 5406
372 TDONK_C.wave 5407
373 TDONK_M.wave 5408
374 WARGA.wave 5409
375 WARGA_C.wave 5410
376 WARGA_M.wave 5411
478 kattack.wave 6380

Alarms etc will be in interfac.drs. Swords, explosion in sounds.drs, try to check the unit's attack graphics (or projectile's moving/dieing) and which sound connected to it.

You can find tracks of the aoe beta with both program (unmarked graphics, hidden half units etc), those sounds perhaps got deleted before final release.

OlekPoland, first of all, please don't practice necromancy at forum. You can start own topic with own subject at forum, no need to open a several years old one.

About your problem, make sure your unit has a "Selection sound" number (example 182) at "Units" tab. and at "Sounds" tab that sound number have a .drs file resource aka it will open that .wav number from the drs file or folder. Before you try to add your own, it's better to test with an existing one, so the error-chance is lower. Then you can do your changes one by one and revert back when something not ok.
