File Description

This mod replaces many of the ambient audio sounds, and adds in new ambient sounds as well, along with addressing some "annoying" audio issues (i.e. extremelly loud faction base radio music, the aggrevating Duty megaphone announcements, etc).

This is currently a rough conversion of my SoC Ambient Audio Overhaul for Clear Sky. This mod is still in a beta form, as I'm trying to iron out some issues - ambient audio is handled much differently in CS than it was in SoC.

Feedback is very much appreciated!!

For the time being, enjoy!

			by: {imperialreign}

*Compatible with CS v1.5.05

The purpose of this mod is to and further enhance the ambience and 
atmosphere of the zone by the addition of better quality, and more 
realistic ambient audio files; and to tweak, adjust, and "fix" some (IMO) 
irritating issues (i.e. overly loud sounds, annoying background audio, 
hearing some audio from very far distances).

At the moment, this CS mod is pretty much a conversion of my SoC mod, and
is still in a very rough, beta form.  More work to come, though.


v0.2b Features:

*additional and improved ambient sounds for all times of day
*adjusted playback distances and volumes
*adjusted occlusion scale
*removed some ambient sounds that detracted from the atmosphere, changed
 tha amount of sounds played during certain times of day
*adjusted faction base radio sounds, no more hearing the bandit's radio,
 or Duty's radio from insane distances
*replaced Duty's irritating megaphone announcements with those from SoC
*replaced anomaly sounds with those from SoC AAO and SO mods, notably
 whirligig, vortex and springboard, electro and burner sounds
*new Main Menu theme music
*replaced all footstep audio, no more equipment jingle (detracted from
 "stealth," IMO)
*extended time period between ambient sounds for nighttime, mornings -
 nighttime is now very quiet and still


much more in the works - just looking to start getting feedback early!


>> For 1.5.05:

*Back up your current gamedata file (just incase something gets screwed up)!

*Go into the <main> folder and copy the <gamedata> folder to your CS directory,
 overwriting any files.

*Open the fsgame.ltx file in your CS directory, change both values following
 the &gamedata& line to TRUE

>> Optional:

*********This is an entirelly optional step not necessary for this mod to work!

****Make a backup of the <bin> directory in your main CS folder!!!!!!!  If you
    don&apos;t make a backup, and these files don&apos;t work right, you will lose all 
    audio and end up having to reinstall!  

****You&apos;ve been warned!

*In the <optional> folder, copy both files into the <bin> folder of your CS

NOTE: 	These are the most current versions of eax.dll and wrap_oal.dll I 
	could get my hands on.  I did not include the most current version
	of OpenAL32.dll, as I could not get SoC to accept it.


*base sounds for whirligig, gravi, vortex anomalies, gunfire and a few ambient
 sounds from:

Darius6 - SoC Sound Overhaul mod v1.07

*all other base sounds obtained from various legitimate and free sources around
 the internet - much thanks to the many audiophiles out there willing to 
 make their recordings free to the public!

*all the stalkers over at the ZSG forums and TPU for putting up with my antics 
 and pestering for playtesters!

*any other users who I might&apos;ve forgotten, or accidentally overlooked - please
 let me know so I can credit you here as well!
