Welcome Proselytes!

 

This thread is for feedback on the various sounds and music in Mental Omega 3.0!

 

Have any thoughts on a specific unit's voice lines? Or a sound effect that doesn't sound just right? Maybe even ideas for the soundtrack in the future? 

 

Keep in mind that we can only use music that is freely available for use or with explicit permission of the artist or their label.

Music in the mod is awesome. I like Epsilon themes the most. About voice lines, I think Yunru should have a "Stop! Hammer time!" line when ordered to deploy. Also, I think Nuwa Cannon's sound is just horrible. it sounds like a 80 year old man who can die at any moment. The fake accent is even worse, not to mention his lines like "I hate violence, but..." geese he drives a nuclear apocalypse on tracks... I think something like the Nuke Cannon's voice from generals would do better. Everything else is cool.

Piranha and Resheph sounds the same, just the volume differs them. It fits Resheph better, I'd say Piranha should get a new voice.

 

Infiltrator and Dunerider can be mixed by voice. That happened with me once.I was like total wtf when I realized that I heard a Dunerider instead of an Infiltrator.

 

Stalin's Fist and Buratino aren't enough loud.

 

Tsivil's voice sounds bad with that FX you've added in.

 

Humvee sounds so odd, it's unfitting.

 

EDIT: Some of those are intended, Divine. Nuwa's intended VA note is "while the most powerful tank ingame, it has a very calm voice, delicate even. hint of a pacifist comes from the lines. Low voice."

Nuwa cannon is like foreshadowing things in real life... Kind of fits its theme.

I always felt the Eradicator could use new lines rather than using the Desolator's (He still says the "Desolator ready" quote, does he?).  Perhaps a much more menacing voice that also mentions about his weapon leaking radiation one war or another, and talking about how enemies shouldn't get too close to him.

 

EDIT:  He still has that "Desolator ready" quote.  I want to hear new voice for Eradicator.

I find Siegfried's voice to be very low, I can barely understand what he says.

 

Also, I think the music in general is too loud, so I have to lower its volume to 4 so I can hear the other voices on 10.

 

Also, it might be a problem with my setup, but sometimes it seems like that all unit voices' volume falls to a minimum, while the music, the effect sounds and EVA is still correctly loud, but the units (especially the new ones). Is there some sort of effect added in MO that makes units' voices louder when the screen is closer to them or something like that?

The voice of the Siege Cadre is boring IMO. Not the quote, but the voice in general. Doesn't fit in compared to other units.

Siegefried's voice should be louder. I turned my volumn to maximum and still can't barely hear what he said.

The gun firing sound of the Quilin Tank is down right lame, I suggest giving it the same sound the Rhino use.

About the soundtrack, would you please put some tracks in RA2 back? I miss Destroy and Grinder alots :sad:

Siegfried's voice definitely needs to have its volume increased, like others have said. I can barely hear him as it is.

 

Volkov needs a few more lines too, the current set gets grating after a while.

 

The Battle Fortress should probably get a new voice as well, since the Scottish voice coming out of a Pacific Front unit is... odd.

No, vanilla BF's voice is badass. I will be sad if it got changed.

It was just as iconic as Apocalypse tank's voice IMO.

Sure it's odd as it is an PF unit. But while we're at it, why not complain about Hailstorm and Blizzard as well?

I'm not debating the fact that the vanilla voice sounds badass, but it just feels weird when it's supposed to be a Pacific/Asian/Oceanic unit. The Hailstorm and Blizzard can be written off as Australian, I guess (are the voices non-Japanese accented? I haven't played MO in a week, so I can't remember). The Battle Fortress, though? I don't think I've ever heard of a Scottish-Australian before.

EU Archon AMC's voice needs a redo feel like, the pace and volume are two down factors.

For music I'd love the occasional real world march or music of the area could add some cool effect.

Should just use Malver's Death Sound they're both Zenothist anyway...

 

There was an older version of the Nuwa Cannon Lines, they sounded less Asian but they did sound more afraid or concerned of their weapons.

 

I've never met a Australian who sounds Scottish though so meh BF should at least get a more custom fitting set as well.

Nah, Malver's deaths doesn't fit. I've sent over Bootsmann's death screams ages ago to Speed, thought those have been put in.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned this before but IMO Tyrant's voice is simply annoying and distracting. It's just WEIRD. If I suggested a voice change, I would suggest Tyranr.

Considering Epsilon Naval Yards still have brown water and then Initiate & GI's having broken Gunfire I'm not surprised...
