View Full Version : Ambient sounds?

About the only place I have heard any ambient sounds is in the underwater quest in Canada. Other than the bubbly noise in there, the rest of the world just sounds sparse. No cars honking horns in MC, no wind or animal sounds in Canada, nothing in the desert at all (I mean, I'd think that the radiation pools would max some sort of hissy acidic sound, at least SOMETHING). No footsteps anywhere. It doesn't make the world "pop" from a sound perspective at all when all you hear is powers going off and music playing.

Now this is funny since I can only hear ambient sounds but I can't hear my own character or those I am fighting. In fact, I hear ambient sounds from far away and have decided to just turn all my sound off since it's very annoying.

yeah, i think the OP needs to adjust their audio sliders.
I also hear ambient sounds beyond where i'd expect to hear them. i.e. car horns while flying 500 feet above the city.
for me, the ambient sounds loop in a jarring way. that is, the loop is so short and specific that i notice it. it grabs my attention, but not in a good way, more like a car alarm. the ambient loops should be short, ofcourse, but they should craft them a bit better. ...a bit more subtle.
