EVE General Discussion


can we have the sewer sounds off in the scanner interface?

it is so annoying during scanning sessions that I had to turn it down to 0 volume permanently.
Usually, zooming out of window reduces noise, yet not in this specific case. The sound is unpredictable and unsilenceable other than switching it completely off in audio settings.

You used to be able to turn this down to an acceptable level until they patched it.

They REALLY want us to hear that weird, annoying, droning sound when we scan.

That tortured bird sound immediately after going to scanner map and repeating often is my main gripe. The patch destroyed my ability to tone it down without ridding almost all other sounds (i.e. hacking sounds).

These sounds are intentional, and especially detrimental to explorers, who scan for hours on end. My only guess is that some knuckleheads at CCP are getting a kick out of annoying the h*** out of players who thrive on exploration. Some random electronica would be much more realistic and tolerable than jungle sounds in a sewer maze.

Someone decided this was an improvement to the game when exploration was tweaked?

It seems another indication that persons who inflict this on players do not play this part of the game themselves, or they too would realize how obnoxious it is.

I like the sound. it makes me feel like i'm in a submarine (in a space ship) (in space) (sans sound) but it still sounds like a cheesy WWII sub movie. Toggle it but don't remove it please. I like it.

I would be happy if I could selectively torn it off or tone it down at least.

scanning?) phhh

Imagine that wh dwellers lost their ability to lower wormhole's sound to be able hear just jumps, but not the usual wh sound.
They usually have alt sitting on wh, cloaked - hence the pain come from.

Now they have to hear that crappy wh sound, which I have lowered down once i heard i far ago...

so CCP can you finally make this ******* stupid sound mutable or add sound setting for it?? ? ??!?!?!

Or at least make sound on/off an account/character bound setting so we can mute prober account selectively and not all windows/accounts/characters at once just because of your dumb nerve killing scanning audio?!??!

I also would love this toned down to about 1/2 or 1/3 of its volume.

Go to setting -> Advanced audio options -> remove secondary interface sounds -> Profit!!??

A life is best lived, to not step into your grave in a well preserved body. Instead, to slide in side ways, all battered and bruised, screamming, "Holy SH**! What a ride!"

not a fix yet a workaround. around CCP's utterly terrible sound creators.
#16 - 2017-07-11 19:36:31 UTC
can we have the fix to allow us to go back to the old scanning system?

if this was possible, people would still play Red Moon Rising Expansion of eve, or whatever was the favorite those days.
