Request: Storm powers reduced volume

Recommended Posts

I'm not looking to mute them entirely, just maybe turn them down 50% so they don't overpower every other game sound while Hurricane is running, heh.

That is actually on my list of things to do. I personally enjoy the sounds, but I know particularly Hurricane drives people nuts. Was that your main issue is with Hurricane?

Hey, was going to try and work on this today, but I don't know which powers you are having issues with. Need some feedback.

Not OP, but one sound that I always have to look at is the cold_loop sound that never stops. The bustling wind noise in the background whenever you have a power visible for ice melee and other sets. I modify it so that it's very quiet, and then I reduce the duration of the draw noise from when you first activate a power as it slowly transitions between the draw --> loop sound effect.

This thread is very helpful for which soundfiles are a bit of a problem, and also where they're found (at least for overrides):

Hurricane is the primary one.

The ice crackling from Ice Storm is another that could be lowered a bit.

Tornado if you have the time.

Lightning Storm I just outright went quiet with.

 

I can get a sound muted no problem, I have the spreadsheet by PK and a quiet file to rename as needed.

It's the powers that are cool sounding but JUST.TOO.LOUD to enjoy on a constant/loop basis.

Working on this one now. I should have it finished within the hour. Stay tuned!

Done, check the CoH Modder Tool for "Quieter Storm Powers"
