Generator Sounds

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.

    You ever hear a generator? They’re pretty loud. I’ve hard wired a few backups and they don’t mess around.

    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).

    Make it hearable only for those people not working on the gen. For god sake, it's really 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.

    I honestly don't mind the sound too much. It's a bit too loud though.

  • SunderMunSunderMun Member Posts: 2,791

    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.

  • shelobstershelobster Member Posts: 252

    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 ^^
