About this mod

This mod has been made to fine tweak Reverb & Ambience Overhaul & Ambient Wasteland, roll them into one with fixes to work seemlessly with Binaural 3D Surround Sound for Headphones / True 3D Sound (old version).

This was made with True Storms so tweaks have been made for this though not a requirement same for Surround Sound mods.

Permissions and credits
Designed for VR & First Person


Must have Ambient Wasteland

Once the mod is installed delete the Ambient Wasteland.esp in the Data folder.

Uninstall / Disable  

Reverb & Ambience Overhaul + any patches

Install Mod

Install Mod Manually - Place all files in Data folder


Install via Mod Manager


Realistic Reverb & Ambience - The sliders have been set at what i would consider the closest to real for all senarios and locations. Don't have to adjust based on location because somethings too loud or broken. Still has good dynamics.

Ambient Wasteland Redone - Removed 'distracting' noises flys, mozzies, dogs, wolves, coyotes, bears, bombs, glass, gunfire, moans, breathing, deathclaw noises in radstorms.

Load Order

- Ambient Wasteland
- Realistic Reverb and Ambience Overhaul 
- Physics Patch *if required*

Adjusted chances of sounds playing back to vanilla levels so its less spammy. 

Adjusted volumes of some sounds cicadas reduced in some areas to blend better with background audio.

Together this means you get a clean vanilla audio with some extra birds cicadas etc in certain areas, but if you hear running or gunfire or explosions its actually a threat or something going on.

Patches and Fixes for all DLC have been included, Vault Patch from jakelad & GINGAs compat edits for echos and double ups of audio when using True storms.

Things not fixed are the Reverb slider saving position, this is why the mod is a set and forget I've tried to set up so you don't need to adjust anything just install and go for the best reverb ratio in all locations.  

All testing done in Fallout 4 VR but i don't see why it wouldnt translate to first person pancake.
