I assume Herr Deutsche Bratwurst has probably gotten very close to being done with any sound changes for FH 2.15. However, I'd still like to recommend two different artillery explosions which IMO could be used as a starting point for some really remarkable in-game sounds.
First is in the preamble to a "Get Your Filthy Hands Off My Desert" from Pink Floyd's The Final Cut. Here is a vid with it: YouTube - Get your filthy hands off my desert. It has a stereo quality to it, so that the listener senses the shell coming closer and then passing across from left to right before it explodes with a startlingly big blast. Perhaps it's meant to be an air-to-surface missile, but I think it could easily serve as arty.
Of course I know we'd never ever never use something that was someone else's property, but maybe these can be used for ideas .
Was that, in the pink floyd song, artillery or an airstrike? Sounded like an F-16 flying over
I agree, i would like to see better artillery barrage sounds and improved distant sounds.
Any suggestion with a reference to Pink Floyd got my vote
Yeah I absolutely love the sounds of artillery that can be heard in the background when you use commander arty. I'd like to hear that with regular player used artillery aswell. Hear that the gun has fired, then hear the shell approaching and hitting the ground causing a tremendous sound filled with the good ol' 0.7 styled "rubble and dirt flying all over" sound effect.
If you have played COH (and even so its two mods "Normandy 44" and "Battle of the Bulge") you know what I mean with the ball-shaking effect that the artillery has. Shame about FH2 not having artillery batteries yet, only single guns so far. But still, would add a lot. And as someone said in another thread before, an animation of the gun would be cool too to add even more depth. Seeing the gun actually recoil.
I just love this scene in "A Bridge Too Far": YouTube - A Bridge Too Far - Artillery support
I like my artillery with lots of debris
and I don't just mean in the sound, but I would like to see some debris with physics that can actually hurt and kill you.
Yea, these are good. I like the ones from Band of Brothers best though. Better sounds like these would really add more to the mod.
You gotta luv Company of heroes artillery barrage sound, its just music for ears..I would piss honey if there would be that kind of artillery sounds in fh2... YouTube - Artillery in Company of Heroes Just look out these artillery sounds in 0:20!. YouTube - Company of Heroes Action - Howitzers and Tanks and heres some awesome distant sounds!
Those sounds as background sounds would make me wet... or scared, i love 'em!
Also, I think they changed sound that is produced by the falling of empty shell hulls that come out of the cannon in 2.15. Now the sound like a small bullet shell comming out instead of a good *DANG*. I hope they change that to
