This only occurs on a dedicated server as of 1.64 in my case, but here is a detailed account of the issue:
- AI Driven vehicles will NOT produce ANY engine sounds in a server environment
- Player operated vehicles have NO issues and still produce all expected sounds.
- If all AI occupants of a vehicle are killed or leave the vehicle while the engine is still running, the sounds will begin to play as they normally would.
My Friends and I would classify this as a major issue because there were so many instances of enemy vehicles unloading entire squads less than 50m from us that we NEVER even heard until the troops engaged us. This is pretty game breaking for us and I hope it gets addressed.
