Sound of waves in regions without sea

Recommended Posts

Although I reported this bug already, I'm going to post this to see if anyone else has heard wave sounds in non-coastal regions like Mountain Town, Mystery Lake or Pleasant Valley. I think this strange bug appeared with the new update or hotfix, not sure which, but before never heard waves while I was walking by the railroad tracks to the Camp Office. And it's kinda annoying hearing "waves" while I'm surrounded by mountains.

Hope this can be solved soon. Thanks.

I just thought of something, are you sure it's not the sound of the Wind? :P

The sound of the wind is continuous, this comes and goes. And I believe it is the same sound of Coastal Highway, when you are near to the sea.

I am sorry you are having this issue btw. Hopefully it will be fixed for you soon. :D

Are you using a "surround sound" headset?

Im personally having issues with blizzard sounds not playing during them. Not headset related.

Same.  I suspect it's due to me playing a custom game that has 4x time dilation.  Does that sound similar to how you are playing?

Nah, challenge modes have the issue as well.

As for the droning sound,  I do know that if you have the surround sound enabled on a headset it can cause the game to sound like you have your ears attached to pipes.

No, the headphones that I use are stereo.

I'm not playing a custom game, it was in a stalker game. And yes @MarrowStone, I have the same problem with challenge modes.

I'm pretty sure (I can be wrong tho) that is not a sound "similar" to waves, is like if the sound of waves that should be reproduced when you are near the sea, instead, happens in all regions of the game.

Odd.. I started up a few test games after first noticing the issue.  Two on Pilgrim, both of which had the proper blizzard sounds, and two on custom with 4x time dilation.  Maybe I just got lucky.  I for one kind of miss the sound!  That's the main reason why I went with 4x time dilation.  There's something kind of soothing about reorganizing the crap on my shelves with that howling wind in the background.

Okay, okay... they reworked the sound effects and I'm starting to think you are right... I keep hearing these "wind/wave" sound effects weird for me and a bit annoying but I guess it's a matter of time getting used to.

I'll have to pay more attention next time and not confuse sounds again, lol.

It's okay because Wind can sound a lot like Waves. :D
