I know there was already a poll on voice acting, but I've got one for the other stuff. Personally I'm tired of the same creaky tree sound effects I hear every 30 seconds.

The only thing that really annoys me is the directional system. It´s bloody impossible to tell if crows are in front or behind you. On the summit of TWM for example there are always a few bodies and it sounds like there are crows everywhere.

I personally find the dripping sounds in the houses to be annoying. What's in a house that would be dripping anyway? lol Melting snow? It doesn't seem like the houses would still have any water in the lines. The pipes would be frozen shut.

But I do agree with Kirby. Sometimes I have a hard time locating the crows if they're out of view.

Lol, how I wish I could find a DIY plumbing book somewhere in the world for those dripping sounds... PV homestead is bordering on Chinese water torture. No chance of getting cabin fever there, I start organizing items on shelves ... then a few minutes later "nope, can't take it, I'm going for a walk in the blizzard for some peace" :) ... and I end up moving my stuff down the road to the barn. I have serious issues with repetitive noises though (my brain fixates on patterns)... so may not be such a big deal for most other players.

I tend to move out of houses with dripping noises too @Shane Retter The places where it really drives me crazy are houses that aren't above freezing.  What's dripping?!? Also, why can't I put a pan underneath it and get water.

Possibly a burst pipe that's leaking if you warm up the house? Not saying that's the rationale, I'm just thinking of what might cause something like that.

@cekiviIt probably is the rationale, but I still want to put a pan under it.  One less match to use. :)
