Hmmm I was wondering what maps the kingtiger exactly are located on and where... If some screenshots could come up then it would be awesome... Btw it have to be in Co-oP mode... I was only able to find the KingTiger on breaktrough :(
Sector 314, Bulge, Breakthrough, Blacknight, Alpenfestung
KT is a great vehicle, but I think the FH (and other mods) model is smaller than the real KT.
Anyway, I play as allied 99.9% of the time, and It's great to have a KT attacking your position!!. The sound of the engine and its strengh is amazing.
Yep, if it wasn't for the sound being used on ten other tanks too :|
i think te koningstiger is 1 of the most good looking tanks ever...i think his looks are very modern (if i didnt know better i sould say that it still used today.) it realy fantastic tank
MkH^Yep, if it wasn't for the sound being used on ten other tanks too :|
Well, I suppose is hard to get the real sound of each tank. How many of you can have a tanks in the garage? :lol: So, we only have 3 options: - rip the sound from other game/mod or movie -> usually ilegal ;) - use the sound of trucks or other vehicles with big engines. - use audio tools to create new sounds. Anyway, it's a hard work to create or edit sounds to get credible tank engines. If I had time may be I'd do it, but I'm composing some songs for FH and that's enough work May be in the future... But what about you? :D
Well, afaik ripping sounds for games or movies isn't illegal as long as they aren't used on commercial purposes.
It would be cool if the sound was used on vehicles with at least somewhat similar engines.. Panther, Tiger, Tiger II, Elefant, but it's also on KV-1, KV-2, IS-2 and so on.
The sound department is way ignored in FH. The same sounds are recycled over dozens of vehicles, and most of them are still quite low quality. More importantly, the sound coding goes along with the quality of the sounds.
Theres quite a contrast between the overall quality of the mod, and the sound section.
If you've ever tried BG, you may have noticed that almost each of their vehicles have a high quality, unique gun and -engine sound, and the sound coding is top notch. You can hear the tanks roaming from hundreds of meters away.
There are plenty of museums where armoured vehicles are kept in running order, so it would be possible to get realistic engine sounds, the Musee des Blindes at Saumur in France, has a working Panther A, a Hetzer and a Panzerwerfer 42, i'm not sure about allied vehicles. The Tank Museum at Bovington here in the UK has a Tiger, M4A2(76)W HVSS, Matilda, Matilda II, Pz.Kpfw.IIIL, StuG.IIIG, T-34/85 and more, all in working order.

They even have a working king tiger there. But i think it hasn't got the original Maybach p230 engine.
