About this mod

This mod will make Mechwarrior5 sound like the proper war-environment it was meant to be.The vanilla sounds in mw5...let's just say aren't that good. I aim to change that.This is war. Not a merry stroll through lollipop land. And I believe it should sound like a war. Along with my own equalization and processing of the sounds, new sounds too. War.

Initial Description:

I love this game. It's great. Runs like a camel with only 2 feet, but it's still nice.

My opinion starts to falter a lil bit when I decide to arm myself with a machine gun, one of the worst sounding sounds in the game.
It sounds like a nailgun underwater that's kinda broken, but still under warranty.

nononono. We can't have this. I'm going in. I usually engineer and make music at https://soundcloud.com/iamgenericmeds

Have been for quite a while. I sell tracks to libraries for films and games.

But nevertheless, 

I can't let this travesty go on. No. I'm gonna upgrade the sound out of this rass.

I'm also gonna fix the mixing. Alot of weird stuff going on with the sound.

Why does it not sound like battlefield bad company 2? I mean, we are in big ass mechs.

I wanna feel like a big man dammit while walking thru explosions with my arm dangling by a string of metal but still firing on who I have targeted uncaring about damage. Surrounded by explosions and enemy fire.

This is where I come in. Using the wisdom I've learned from making music all these years.... tuning and making sounds for a game?

LET'S GO.


What I've done - 

Made overall sound quality better. I've tuned some of the master effects for a better representation of their character, as well as the character when different sounds play at one time. As well as added some effects as well.

Replaced some laser sounds, ballistics and missile with own that I've either synthesized or made.
 - got a bit more I've made I need to test out. Esp for stream vs salvo.

Changed some Hud lock on sound(s). 

Changed mechlab sound for transactions and declothing your mech.

Adjusted equalization,  proper volume, as well as some new processing for ALOT of their sounds. Per mixing rules to make everything intense, but still a little breathable. Alot of their sounds were dull.

Changed other stuff I don't remember.


My way of doing this is doing the most important stuff first, then fanning out. I wanted to focus on combat first.

I have some old mw2 original tracks I've remastered to be alot better sounding that I'm going to eventually use as the title or something to that effect.


Also will be adding my own custom music/textures I've composed or from sounds I've made over the years.

We shall see.

Let us proceed.

Sound Eggs (Random audio information about sounds used)

Machine gun sound is a mixture of a small chunk of the old small pulse laser sound, and layers of paper ripping at different pitches. Then all combined.


Missile sounds are made from Mig29 flyby recordings (russian fighter jet) combined with a printer cartridge and bottle rocket moving repitched and distorted slightly.


L laser sounds are a mixture of several software synthesizer sounds, and repitched versions of recorded electrical hum. (these need to be turned up in next update as they are too low in volume in current mod version)

Lock - On sounds are from a porsche dashboard (Oddly fit.....)


I'll update more here as I remember. 




-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you have sounds/ideas you think may benefit the mw5 experience, contact me and I can either layer them in (per if they sound great) or use them.

Keep in mind, I know nothing about lore. I'm looking more at the experience of this game itself. War.
