Quite some time back in the past (Before Dominion?) when you killed a capsule, very distinctive squishing sound was heard. For some unknown reason it was removed and I feel that even though it is a minor thing, EVE is poorer without it.

I do not see any downsides to bringing it back. It does not sound like a huge code modification undertaking. The sound file should probably still be available. The logic on when to play it was probably taken care by the client, so it should not add any server-side lag. And one check should not add significant client-side lag either.

Confirming the squish sound was epic. Eve is far less epic without it.Crying or Very sad

Supporting my own topic.

Surely there are more people that miss it! Be rewarded for playing with sound on.

One small problem. In space there is NO sound, At all... ever. There is no air to act as a medium for the sound to travel in that is caused by said squishing. Add to that the fact that you’re in another ship far away from said pod so even if it were possible to have sound in space it would have to travel many kms to get to you... thus weakening the sound from being heard at all.

That being said.... Thousands of times a day ships worp though planets, stars, stations and even other ships so demanding that ccp stick to the laws of physics would just be silly. Rolling Eyes

Thus I support the idea of hearing a nice squishing sound from blown up pods.

True, it is not realistic, but it was well worth it!

Bump back up. Surely there are more people that would want to see pod squashing return!

I don't know if you have played Shattered Horizon, but that has a nice get out clause which is a sound emulation. How it would work I don't know, but it at least makes it look like they made an effort to explain sound in space.

Anyway, the squishy noise was awesome.

Why did they ever do away with that very satisfying sound?

It does... but it always sucks. :( A pod squish sound is not enough to turn it back on.

I've played for years, and gone through four PCs in that time. Not once did sound ever work right in Eve.

And, to my experience, Eve is the only game I have ever played where the sound was buggy at all.

With every expansion I turn it on and run with it for a little while to see if they've got it right... or even a tad less buggy. That experiment always ends within a few minutes as pointless.

Yes, EVE sound is not the best, but with our help we can make it better!

Starting with having that beautiful and satisfying squish when you send someone to visit their cloning facilities!

Actually I do believe that in one of the short stories CCP gave the reason for their being sound; that capsuleers brains found it easier to accept the information if the ships systems simulated sounds.

Quote:
After a while Anu's voice came back: "You're doing very well. Now we are going to activate the audio synthesizers."
"Audio synthesizers? What do you mean?" Pirkotan thought.
"As you know there is no sound in space, but when we were developing the capsules we found that people wanted to use as many of their senses as possible, thus we added the sound. By letting a computer create three dimensional sound we also add to the awareness you have while in battles, for instance."
Several seconds later Pirkotan could hear the audio synthesizers kick in; he could hear the low humming noise of the propulsion system and the sudden hissing sound of course-correctional thrusters.
Anu came back on: "Now we'll test the audio system." Suddenly a missile was launched from one of the missile bays. It flew majestically out from the ship and disappeared to the right of Pirkotan's vision. Pirkotan turned the camera and watched it fly away from the ship. Then a stab of green and yellow light came from the Jovian vessel, accompanied by a loud crackling noise. The weapon burst hit the missile and it exploded. Pirkotan heard the explosion clearly and when he turned the camera to the Jovian vessel he could still hear the explosion's residue in the background.

Eve is dieing I tell you.

Have I heard it? No.

Am I a greedy little ape-thing that wants all the squishy sounds he can hear? Yes. I'm sure it sounds delicious.

Unfortunately I started podding people after this squishy noise vanished, so I have only heard it from a sound file. It was awesome! Bring back the squish!
