that's what it's there for.
I don't know if you have seen the other thread, but it doesn't matter.

I spent a lot of time listening to players, to other devs, brainstorming on my own and coding prototypes, to figure out how I could do this the best way.

not just turning down certain sounds, but how this could become a "good thing" instead of just a hacked solution that will equally just make all of you turn down everything.
The system is a combination of two things - sounds that you think are too loud or you don't care about, turn them down.
but also, sounds that you do want, but they mess up everything because you run multiple clients, it's fixed now.

I know the jukebox ain't there, ain't coming back either, but with this, you can multibox and still have music on.
I play myself, with a lot of clients, and I noticed that I often had the same sound from multiple clients at the same time - sometimes just annoying to listen to, sometimes even messing up what kind of warning or information I wanted.

A lot of players told me they were annoyed with the crimewatch timers, ok, that's dealt with.
but not just by turning it down, you can also just choose to have it only on, if you client is in focus.

There are several things I want into the game, things to help eve back on the audio track of being a game where audio isn't just an obstacle you stumble upon. I grew tired of listening to that same meme over and over again, yet it's kind of funny and I get where it's coming from, I found it fairly obvious that something had to be dealt with rather than just adding sounds to new UI, Game etc. features.

Cheers. :)

And a great effort I must say. Looking forward to playing with this.

Having options is ALWAYS welcome IMHO.

Nice I frequently run 3 or more clients and have the audio turned off because of the overlap. Will be nice to have the audio back again.

Is the MWD racecar spool-up sound ever coming back? Even if it was annoyingly loud in its first implementation I liked it :)

Hey!
Can you make the girls in gallente stations make moan even more?

I love the nasty voice and the moaning afterwards,
but it could be a lot more satisfying,
if we could get the noise of her being satisfied.

I applaud the guy who made this happen... xD

Wow, that was fast CCP.
It only took you 10 years to fix the audio.

naa. not take her away, but I mean some of the station sound like a horse auction, in some alien dialect.
almost a funny cartoony voice talking here and there.

I know this is a game and entertainment and all, but I just can't find room for anything remotely non-serious, in here.
maybe fireworks and stuff, but nothing silly like this.

i played with world level in station.

is it just me or does the slider affect what's going on?

high up there is lots of wind and distant whispering...

And the moaning lady. I was able to partly follow a conversation from the sound
of her voice... even noticed when she left and came back.
Really loved it! :D

Can't wait with what you'll come up with!

I love all these noisy details! :D

It's great! :D

well, I'd like to actually have specific stations actually speak Intaki or other Eve languages.

Just make it change occasionally, slip in the odd police chase with sirens or something at random. Maybe some airport/Railway station departure announcements in Klingon.
