I noticed OrbWeaver talking about the weak water stepping sounds, so I decided to try something out. Give these a listen:

 

movement_water_01.ogg

movement_water_02.ogg

movement_water_03.ogg

movement_water_04.ogg

 

I tried to eliminate the sharp splashes and make it more of a wading sound. I'm not entirely satisfied with the result though.

I was thinking of the very shallow water (e.g. for puddles), which do indeed need to be made much lighter and shorter (IMO). However, Kyyrma's ones might be an improvement for the wading sounds that occur in slightly deeper water.

Getting there, although to my ears those are perhaps slightly too tinny. They remind me more of spitting out the mouthwash at the dentist's than walking through a puddle.

 

Here are some test recordings I made in my bathroom. Unfortunately there is way too much background noise to make these usable, but these are in my opinion close to what we should be looking for.

They are quite close to the ones I posted above, but I do see what you mean... I'll keep on working on this.

Anyone fancy making some wooden ladder climbing sounds? I've been struggling all day to come up with something half-decent and I don't like anything I've come up with.

I remember watching those behind-the-scenes videos and being amazed at the lengths foley artists go to for sounds to sound right ... and they usually don't have much to do with the original thing.

 

Edit: Heh, should have noticed I'm responding to a month-and-a-half old post.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I think its hilarious how hes still going on about Japan. Im sorry, is this 1988?

Who he?

You are vague.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Is this still needed?

 

Do you mean something like this? https://www.freesound.org/people/hintringer/sounds/250020/

Do you still need these leaf foot steps sounds...?

Here are some very rough ones I did outside on the few leaves I could find. The qaulity isn't perfect as I had to apply a noise filter in Audacity.

If either one is ok, I can slice them up for you etc.

I think the biggest problem with the current ones is that the sounds are too long...they keep playing for a second after you've stopped walking.

ive looked all the falling foot sounds and they are all roughly 0.5s long, so if the sounds are played beyond the the actual foot step then its a engine issue.

 

@Gman/Steve, where do we check when the sound is being played as the player places a foot on the ground..?

 

Sorry, I just stumbled across this question now ...

 

It's handled in the source code for the player: void idPlayer::PlayFootStepSound().

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
