Hi, forums! First time posting here, and I've done so because I put together some mods for certain powerset sounds I disliked. That's it, really!
Downloads are attached. As I've not gotten to max level yet, I haven't been able to test out every sound ingame to ensure it syncs up, but I've used the old sounds as a reference for timing, so it should hopefully work out! If you have any input or ideas, or even requests for sounds to change, let me know!
I've always found the electricity sounds in this game to be strange. That odd, swirling fizzy noise doesn't sound very electric, and powers like Charged Bolts just sound plain weird. So what I've done here is replace many electricity related power sounds with new ones, sampling sound effects from a great variety of sources and combining them into mostly original sounds.
The melee sfx included here still have CoH melee base sounds, since those are great IMO.
Pew-Pew Beam Rifle
Ugh... While I love the concepts of the Beam Rifle powerset, a lot of its effects are just obnoxious buzzing sounds. So I made new ones, which again combine multiple sources to create new sounds, which I think are more snappy and satisfying without all the electric bees.
Gender-Neutral Sonic Blast
I tried to make a Sonic Blast character earlier- she was a Sentinel who used special gadgets to blast music at her foes, and amplify her voice. But that Scream sound effect... GRAAH! It didn't fit at all, and irritated me so much I abandoned her. Well, with these two sound effects installed your lovely loud ladies no longer sound like extremely angry men! Using samples from other sonic powers in COH, I've created a pair of sounds that replace that manly scream with more abstract sounds, so they fit with a greater number of character concepts.
Blunt-Sounding War Mace
War Mace has a lot of weapon options that are blunt with no sharp ends- and the powerset deals no Lethal damage- but the sound effects sound pretty rip-and-tear-y! It simply doesn't fit your baseball bat, mallet or warhammer. So, I made a soundpack that changes the impact sounds to sound more blunt. Sledgehammer and Street Justice impacts were mixed and edited to create these sounds.
