Anyone else find the new gen sounds really loud and unpleasant to hear?
It's very obviously the sounds of a car starting which really bothers me since its a gen and not a car. 😂
No not really at first I was afraid that they didn't add any noise that a generator is being worked on now i could hear it.
Its more of a thing since its really frequent and loud where you can barely hear the sounds of the things they pull and twist on the gen itself.
You ever hear a generator? They’re pretty loud. I’ve hard wired a few backups and they don’t mess around.
I don't understand why they added the noise. No one asked for it and from the people I've talked to no one likes it.
Don't want to sound like a d*ck but I just find it extremely annoying to listen to and I don't think there was any reason to add it.
It must be so annoying to be forced to listen to noise that is purposefully loud so you can't hear your opponents.
But man chase music on the killer side and survivor noises are just fine aren't they?
In all seriousness, I wish they'd get rid of the loud and obnoxious "extra noises" they use to mask other noises. There was a period of a few months where the music was very quiet and the game was much more atmospheric as a result.
I like the sounds, didnt know so many other people didnt.
I'm neutral on it. As long as the ranges and audibility for the Killers is the same, why should I care? I live in Maine, and I can assure you that real generators are loud as hell. Perhaps they are going for immersion on that one. My hat is off to them for the effort; I think it is a bit ungrateful to complain about something they clearly spent a lot of time on and doesn't (as far as I can tell) affect game play.
I do have Technician as a Perk and I do use it (regularly) and as far as I can tell I haven't had any more Killers finding me working on a Generator based on noise than before.
I don't mind something that's loud as long as it fits better because the way they've made it sound now I feel like I should be able to drop that ######### in one of the Autohaven Buicks and drive out
I actually didn't mind the revving (these "gens" are literally just V8 engines wired into light towers after all), though I understand how this one really loud and jarring sound distracts from a lot of the more detailed and intricate sound design that was put into the new repair animations.
Considering this revving sounds like the gen trying to "turn over" and start, I'd say they should just adjust these sounds to only play at specific repair-progress intervals (probably around every 20-25% progress when a new pair of pistons begin to oscillate).
They removed the super satisfying socket wrench turn.
One of the best tools to just fiddle with from the sound alone.
I'm sad its gone.
I don't like the sound at all. I don't mind if they want to improve the generator repair sound but the current sound is awful.
I just played survivor today, I hate this engine sound, it's very loud and annoying, might be my personal opinion but I wish they would've not added that.
Yea chase music can be annoying (I literally hate everything about Billy's in particular). They really don't need to make more obnoxious noises but they seem to love to lol
I think the only ones who liked the sound are just people who only play as killer
It's really annoying
I played Survivor for the 1st time today since the update, and when I heard the noises, I had to double take because I thought someone was starting a car in the game. I mean, why does it sound EXACTLY like a car being started? It just feels so out of place for me now.
Make it hearable only for those people not working on the gen. For god sake, it's really annoying.
It's so obnoxious, especially if more than one person is working on a gen. There's so many sound issues, adding unnecessary sounds to the game is extra annoying.
They spent time on it? Its 3 distinct sounds of someone starting a damn car over and over. If that's the thing they spend their energy and effort on sorry, there is no hope.
Generators have an engine in them. Cars have engines. Touching two wires together when hotwiring a car is turning the engine on.
What are the Survivors doing in their new animations? Exactly that. I don't see the problem with these sounds.
You ever see through walls? When I put on my Myers mask I can see 32m through anything. It’s crazy.
Except that they are very LOUD. That's the issue.
I honestly don't mind the sound too much. It's a bit too loud though.
Yes, it's ######### awful. Idk what they were thinking adding that when the new sounds were already a great addition. Please revert, devs. It makes doing the most painful thing in the game, even more painful. And we're forced to do it for large amounts of time at once.
Just turn your volume down.
The first time I heard it I thought it was a horse.
I hope they change it to something more appropriate but if not then I'd at least like my field of view not to disappear inside the generator when I'm trying to look around me while working on a gen.
It doesn't work like that on a game like Dead by Daylight, where you need to hear every breath, every sound the killer makes. Imagine playing vs Scratched Mirror Myers and you turn down your volume. You will absolutely not hear his breath by turning your volume down. Same with Ghostface, Deathslinger, every killer with tinkerer.
While we're talking about new gens can we highlight sparking?
Completed gens spark.
Normal regressing gens and Pop regressing gens both spark orange.
I play survivor and I like the new sound a lot.
i don't mind the sound design of it, but it just too loud. Like you hardly can hear the TR of killers and weirdly Technician doesn't deem the sound either ^^
