Thanks for giving us the great graphics update. But when are the sound effects of eve be given some attention? It's so terrible!
Ok... I'm sure some of you will say "oooh I like the sound in eve... there is nothing wrong with that" but polease! at least the missile launch and explosion sounds they suck big time! I can't abide to hear tremendous explosion sounds for light missiles that don't do me any damage.

I have an idea! You (eve team) don't need to spend a dozen man-years to do anything about it (please don't let me wait another whole year for that).
I just ask you to make that moddable! This will not hurt playability and will not give any advantage (other than purely psichological) to any player who decide to do it.

Please please! Make the sound modable!!!

Thanks

I'd prefer them adding scaling ability of the UI or at least certain parts of it, and the abillity to move the ship readout etc. Also to bring back the older ship readout and target signs, and make targets movable on their own, not all at once.

What gets me is the bug that instead of starting deadspace music when activating a gate you get no music at all. Hate that, I love a lot of the music.

I turned off the sound in Eve after about the first 15 minutes of playing.

It does suck pretty bad.

Of course I have an extensive music library so I don't mind too much.

For all those that don't have sound on, would you enable it if the sounds were better?

I'm not a big fan of some of the more obnoxious sounds, but I do enjoy what little good there is. I was really hoping they'd stick some new sounds in with Trinity though. They're definitely way below the graphics quality.

IF EVE had sound, which it doesnt (10th!) and it was good, then yes most of the time i would have it on.

First "Yes I appreciate sound in EVE"


No we won't get it moddable. That will open up too many dark sticky black holes of doom.

Just fix it so we hear sounds when we should hear sounds, and don't hear sounds when we shouldn't. Then we might not have to listen to so many leet snobs saying "EVE has sound?" If the sound is sensible, maybe so many people wouldn't turn it off. Sound should be an additional source of information, not just poorly executed ear-candy.

Eve sounds are generally too extreme...and vague to be worth enabling.

I really don't see any hole of doom at all.

It's as simple as looking for a sound file in the disk before it plays the vanilla one.
It does not have to give players the chance to edit the files.
And being so specific to sound it does not touch in any way the logic of the game.

That simple.

God the people that say "eve has sound?" are so gay. Ok ok...we all get it...you play with the sound off. No need to hear it from a hundred different people announcing it like their proud or something.

turning off sound makes the fps jump quite a bit, just turn it off

They are making it clear that Eve lacks a very essential thing. Sound effects. I don't say music because we can just play an mp3 in background and that is it.
People play without sound off because it sucks not because they are proud of it.

No, no, they're just letting us know they're so hardcore that a few extra fps means more to them than a little bit of extra immersion :)

For me, sound is a big part of a game. I couldn't play a game without sound, even for extra fps, and if the sounds don't pass a certain bar of professionalism, I can't play the game either. I wouldn't say the sound is all that bad in EVE, it's about average for a game of this type I'd say, there's just not enough of it, not quite enough variety (sort of the space game equivalent of having the same two footsteps in an fps, not enough variation). Some sounds are actually pretty good. The jumpgate sound, although for some reason permanently fixed at ear-bleeding volume, is actually quite a jump-gatey sound to my ears and mind.

The music's also quite good, in a retro (I'm guessing a tribute to 70s "progressive") synth music sort of way; although (again) there isn't really enough of it, not enough variety.

Nah, were just saying that for some reason EVE doesn't need sound. I've had it off for most of my years playing too although that was because the engine was so pathetic it really did kill your FPS. Now the sound doesn't kill the FPS on my machine at least but it is still highly annoying.

If we had a simple option to turn off some sounds like we do GFX effects then I would turn some of them back on. CAP depleted, Ammo out etc. However the warp tunnel is probably the most annoying sound in any game and one you hear a hell of a lot if you play for even a week.

Give us the option to turn some off and then I think a few more would have the essentials on. If not, you miss nothing with sounds off.

stealth edit quote..""God the people that say "eve has sound?" are so ***. Ok ok...we all get it...you play with the sound off. No need to hear it from a hundred different people announcing it like their proud or something.""

Its less than they fact they people are proud its the fact that sound was turned off due to freezes and crashes having sound on causes when in a large conflict. Unfortunatly you are to stupid to see sarcasm when someone writes it. Congrats for not just being stupid but harassing people that understand. and merry christmas

I have to agree with this, the jumpgate and now also some other sounds have become far too loud over the last few patches.
I like to play with sound on for the immersion, but it all seems messed up atm, if you want to be able to hear the music, you get deafened by the gates and sonic booms.
I'm sure you had a slider to turn down effects and keep music before Neutral

My one real problem with the sound has to do with missile detonations: they're too loud as it is, and having to deal with 5-6 at once even when OUT OF RANGE is not exactly aural therapy.

I like Eve's sounds in general, though. Mining lasers are calming, the music suits the setting, and weapons are throaty and mean-sounding. Even the missles don't sound "wrong," just too damn loud! Razz
