today I have a rather big update coming along. I had some time this week and kinda went ahead with it. Found back my motivation and started something, finally!
With this update I put some requests in account. Mainly its an update about urgent and overdue issues that got fixed. Yes, the damn miniguns are a real pain! Even now, after they got fixed and work, they dont sound right somehow. But I have to admit that I'm bound to ArmA's lovely limitations that does not allow me to archive greater sounds for it. But at least they should work and produce a sound what so ever.
By saying I took requests in account I aim at the "SMA - Specialist Military Arms" mod, that I fully support and cover at the moment. All weapons are covered with either existing JSRS soundsets or with new unique sounds like the AAC and SCAR weapon sounds.
Besides that, the RHS arsenal sounds grew further - SA58 and 61 are covered, missing suppressor sounds got fixed (except the M76 SD sounds, which for some weird reason does not detect the silencer attachments) and some changes where made to fit better together.
The other part of the RHS update would be the vehicle part! I finally got myself motivated to invest some time into the lovely vehicles and covered at least a hand full of them - M113, Humvee, M2A2, M1A1, some trucks, russian Tigr, BMD and BMP and so on. The list of vehicles is big, my list of coverage not, yet!
One big part of this update is the new tail system, tho its nothing new at all. I kinda optimized the way JSRS handled reflections and reduced the amount of sounds per weapon but increased the randomization of each single effect. The game should be able to produce tail and reflection sounds at almost any time and the on/off switching between tails and no tails because of too much background sounds should be gone to like 95%.
I really hope you enjoy this work and I will try my best to maintain my work and to develop it further.
Yes, that's what a sound looks like! For the new SMA Support I added several new and unique sound effects!
A smooth transition between ArmA3 vanilla and ArmA3 mod content, that's what I'm aiming for when it comes to sound - the same standard all around!
The mod can be found in the Steam Workshop! I sure maintain it further and will keep an eye out for developments of SMA itself.
