Feature Request: User definable voice actor files

Author

Currently, the in-game voice(s) are stored inside resource files, I think in .BNK (bink) format?

Request: Create external file-based audio files for the voice-acted audio in the game and use those for voice acting audio playback in-game. Use a publicly available popular format such as .ogg, .mp3, or .flac.

Purposes:

1) To allow people to have new, or older audio voice files as they desire. (New Aura or Old Aura as an example.)
2) To allow people to record, and use their own customized voice actor packs for EVE. Imagine ship or NPC character voices done by Tony Jay, or That Movie Guy, or your favorite alliance person with "that voice" on comms.

Other information:

a) Game would automatically create any missing external audio files from the defaults in the internal .res files when the external files are missing.
b) Users could replace the individual files with different audio recordings, changing as much, or as little as they desire. (Maybe they just like the old Aura for a few navigation things.)

Aye, you have my vote.

Not that CCP will pay any heed to you.

CCP Falcon has probably found someone somewhere who likes the new Aura, Donald Duck on speed, voice and will use it as evidence of the overwhelming support for the new Aura.

This is not a signature.

100% Supported.

Just waiting for CCP Falcon to come in with a "Nope".

+1 ....I miss Classic Aura, her voice was like silk. New Aura sounds like a cheap polyester designer brand ripoff...

This obviously should be an option just like overriding dynamic music with classic EVE music.

The old Aura is just called Aura. The new voice is not worthy of the name, and we should call her something else.

Seagull craps on everything.

I'd like Brian Blessed in full 'Flash Gordon' mode for my 'Aura replacement voice' please. Hearing "Gordon's Alive!" everytime my WCS get me out of a trap would be delightful :D

+1 The only lasting remnant of the accident was a tendency for her voice to sound metallic, but Excena later admitted that she loved the effect and had intentionally kept her voice like that."

new aura voice is crap

++ This post.

Now her voice sounds very slightly metallic, and certainly not "worn". More like "perky" and on caffeine.

I have suggested this somewhere else.
This will allow us to have whatever suitable (or unsuitable!) voice samples we want.
Clearly a good compromise and one that other games have implemented in the past. I fondly remember my X-Files samples for a couple of characters in BG etc.

+1 Suported.

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

I really don't see how CCP could keep their head in the sand for much longer regarding this issue. We simply need an answer. Keeping silent obviously isn't doing them any good.
