Sound Request: Failed to Drop Item

Recommended Posts

We need a sound for when you want to drop an item from your inventory into the world (including a shouldered body) but there is no room to put it in front of you.

 

In Thief, this was a generic grunt "ugh", in TDS, it was the much-reviled "uh-uh." Currently we have no sound, and without any feedback, it just feels like the game missed the drop command when you try to drop and there's no room.

How about a non-intrusive "tone" that would let the user know that the action isn't working? Below are a few ideas (intentionally quiet so as not to disturb the player as much):

If not we can create a typical "grunt" sound.

I have a feeling those could easily be missed if there were ambient music playing.

 

Personally, a simple grunt is the least immersion-breaking sound I can think of as feedback.

Okay, I have included four to try. I tried to match the character's voice as much as I could although my voice is a bit deeper. But, hopefully it is close enough to not be distracting.

Doesn't matter if they match really, as I'll be recording a whole new voice set for the main character very shortly, so they'll be replaced eventually.
