SoundFX : Missing Sounds

Recommended Posts

This thread is to keep track of the Art Sound tasks that needs to be done and who is working on which one. Keep it clean, post only when you are going to start a task and when it has been finished and approved or committed by someone of the team.
- Do not post suggestions. Create a new topic or use any suggestion thread.
- Do not post Wips. Create a ===[TASK]===[SOUND]=== thread on the Art forum for this matter.
- Do not post references. Use the relevant task thread.
- LEGAL WAIVER: Please read this before contributing and abide by it.

*We can't assure that your models will be used for the final game, and we're also looking for a certain quality level, don't get upset if your model doesn't make it into the game, practice is the best way to improve.

I can help you organize this but you need a coherent roadmap first.

  • Improve existent sounds like alarms and give variety to them (little edition).
  • Take my time to get adequate(better or more fidelity to my ideas)  sounds and experiment with the creativity or some method by movie/film industry.(or gaming but... this is relative)
  • Make new alarms for me is priority. it better have diversity like other RTS.
  • Make melee sound improvements... isn't hard.
  • Discuss how improve and show proposal comparing between other games like AoE or Total war.
  • Have music perspective ( Omri ).
  • Playtesting with mods like Delenda Est or Terra Magna. is easy to me see other necessity thinking in possible alternatives to vanilla. @wowgetoffyourcellphone is one best guys to have feedbacks, but if isn't possible.
  • Find new techniques or try reverse engineering.
  • I can have access to make Foley but can be nice have some assistance and help by others volunteers.

------- extra info--------------

I have friends in my own country, but busy mostly. 

I have teachers in my media.

----basically this help me to do this-------

@Lion.Kanzen This will become the official thread to look at for sound contributors. I updated your first post.
You have to edit it to add new sounds requests. Also, if you find a sound that's already in the game remove it from the list or strike it if it's good enough.

  • Ogg and WAV.

 

Now the really missing sounds are alarms, like under attack their variants, battle sounds but this is only longer(foley) not technically difficult.

You can help and we are two guys the musician and me (audio editor) but I'm more 2D visual  artist.

I'd like to contribute some sounds.  Should I upload them directly here as .WAV files? 

Hey Nils and welcome to the forums :)

If you don't mind could you make an introduction thread in the application subforum using the template there ? Thanks in advance.

With sounds specially not related to Alerts or GUI.

We haven't variety mostly are treble have higher frequency, specially combat and metal sounds.(compare with AoE DE).

We lack of combat bass kind. this monotony breaks our visual immersion, we need authentic like. listen  archer firing and you can realize  the difference .

Studying other games like AoE series or strategy, even some series like Rome( HBO - 2005).

From what I've read on other threads, mono is preferred so that the engine can do some stereo positioning according to where on the map things are happening.

I need to ask are these sounds completely made from scratch or are they based on something else like other sounds movies recordings from someone else etc 

Sounds good so far.

Great. If you use CC sounds who requires attribution you'll have to put their names here as well :)

Have you downloaded the development version yet ?
