Are you crazy ? Do you know we dscan every second in WH space. This sound is already a nightmare. So make a way to dissable it or at least to get back to the old one.

Seriously .. do you play the game ?


NB : for now if you want to dissable that sound you have to put down *UI interaction* in audio / advanced.

Regarding the new Dscan sound effect, now that the patch has been deployed;

I like the fact that I get a sound to acknowledge the game is actually scanning when I hit the 'V' hotkey.

I feel it is superfluous and annoying that the sound is triggered with every single refresh of the Dscan window such as jumping gates, or changing the distance and angle sliders.

Ideally for me, the sound would only be triggered via the hotkey or scan button.
However, if it is not possible to differentiate between an active scan refresh and just changing sliders/jumping gate, I suppose a viable solution would be adding an advanced audio option to disable the sound effect all together.

I agree with the fact than the UI could be improve. The improvment are more or less good. But why the hell have you changed the sounds.

For something you are doing constantly .. you dont want more sound. You just want the minimum. Somehow CCP manage to put more annoying sound, and to change sound who already was needed for really annoying ones. \o/

I'll give this a try when I'll know how to mute it.
