    Summary
    This week's update introduces many new sounds for ships and vehicles in the game. We're also implementing HUD improvements and providing better modding support for sounds. Sounds are now determined by the size of the ship and type of vehicle. Small ships, large ships, and wheeled vehicles now all have their own unique sounds, and there are also unique sounds for gyros, thrusters, and reactors.
    Cockpit sounds also now differ based on player perspective - in first person, you'll hear a 2D sound, but from a distance you'll hear a 3D sound. Each ship category has its own set of sounds and individual settings (volume, pitch range, etc.) and modders can now create and modify these ship categories.
    Finally, HUD improvements mean that they now scale properly for resolution and multiple monitors.

    Weeee!

    *Update*

    So there was a crazy incident just now where my back right speaker just started screeching at me while using spectator camera and space master to zoom back to my base area.

    Thanks for the update , let's see how is the performance

    Edit¹:
    Yeah... nothing for DS... Server closed for the fourth consecutive update...
    Come on guys, give us something in the DS department, please!

    Edit²:
    I liked the new things, it's always good to have new things in the game, but i believe it is not the time to focus on that, especially in sounds, there are numerous other areas that need more attention at this moment, but i believe in keen's work, keep up guys. :)

    PS.:
    Hello @S7E, good to see you again in the forum just pressing disagree on posts of others and not contributing with absolutely nothing, keep up the good work buddy.

    Yay Update! Looking amazing. Thanks for reducing the Argentavis, that thing gets kinda annoying. One map has about nine of them floating around totally destroyed. Thanks Keen!

    The car sounds are amazing. Not a particularly huge fan of the Atmosphere Thruster-ones though. Actually scratch that, they take about ten seconds of update video to get utterly annoying.

    Large Ship Ion Thrusters sound like a Capital Dead Space monster, what's up with that?

    Interior lights still not fixed? What a pity...
    Anyway, the new sound system is a good thing.

    I think my pc has sound problem with this game (but I didn't have any sound problem in another game). Do you have any idea to fix it?

    I was suprised to hear people are having trouble with the Argentavis, true it can be difficult sometimes to catch up to it but the main problem I have with them is coming up with new ways of blowing them up. Those new sounds are amazing and I like the new HUD features. Our suits now have an in-built ore detector?

    First off.. disappointing, lacking and just at this point in the game not needed. sounds for different crafts should not be a priority when so few of the ppl that has actually invested their money in this game can not even play it because of all the issues YOU have created over time. things that work suddenly no longer work and so forth. how about stabilising the game before you decide to add new stuff to clutter up your code even more?

    "fixed HUD markers don't render correctly on extreme resolutions"

    What extreme resolution? In DX11, the higest resolution is HIGH. We're talking about DX11 right? because extreme was only in DX9 and I thought that support was not offered any more. Am I getting this right or am I missing something?
