---Info---

It really annoyed me how going into battle with a party of heavily armored knights or a party of unarmored club wielders would both sound the same...a blunt slugfest.
So after a lot of hitting and scraping objects together, this is what I came up with.

This mod doesn't aim to revamp the vanilla sounds, but to add more "metal" to the audio of the battles. A battle between two parties of heavily armored soldiers should actually sound like armored soldiers hacking and slashing away at eachother instead of unarmored men hitting eachother with blunt weapons.

What is changed:
-Weapon impacts
-Shield impacts
-Projectile impacts and misses
-Ranged weapon fire
-Weapon draw and put away sounds
-Footstep/hoof sounds for human and horses
-Body falls
-Dummy sounds for the training ground
-New death and grunt voices
-Some interface sound improvements
-Included additional voices from the "Official Vocals Sound Pack" by rejenorst
-Various other improvements and volume tweaks


A "Extra" folder has been included which contains a "sounds.txt" without the new voices and a "module_sounds.py" for modders.

---------------------
Thanks to rejenorst for allowing me to use his voices
