AI Drowning sounds

Is it an idea to change these from the current choking sounds to something a little more erm... bubbly? Perhaps even low pass filtered as they have to be submerged to even make them. Just a thought. :ph34r:

Where are the REAL brits?! The one's we have are just brit-ish.

IIRC, most of the vocal sets do have proper drowning sounds. I've never seen an AI drown before, however, so I don't know if they're actually used.

I've also heard them coughing while under water. Interestingly enough, they do play a drowning sound when their health runs out.

 

Which is why I'm thinking that it might be "better" to play sounds of short bursts of airbubbles as they are "hit" by the water and a longer one as they expire. This could be shared between AIs as the character of their voices don't make a difference when their lungs fill with H2O. I'm volunteering to make them if it's of interest.

 

This might be regarded as nitpicking, and I don't mean to criticize anyones work but as gaming becomes more and more naturalistic one is less forgiving of some things that just end up breaking the immersion.

"naturalistic"? You mean like how many mainstream games have bodies that fade out of sight five seconds after they die? :)

A lot of times now they don't even wait for the player to look away.

 

I think the Thief guards also played their standard damage sounds when under water.

Yes, AI underwater should play drowning sounds, not choking or pain. Someone can add it to the tracker though I imagine it will be a low priority item.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
