Watchtower "indoor audio" active with no roof
Closed, DuplicatePublic


When building a watchtower and standing on top of a floor with nothing built above, the audio outside of it becomes muffled as if you are standing indoors despite being on top of a floor with nothing else to form even a room.


Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce

Construct a watchtower at any level without adding the metal roof.

Stand anywhere in the watchtower, including on the highest point possible.

The rain, wind, distant gunshots etc all sound muffled as if you are indoors. The same goes for your character: gunshots and walking around sound as if you're inside a building.

Yeah i noticed this after playing on build anywhere server a few months ago, having used a lot of single level watchtowers in the build.

Storm with heavy wind/rain was virtually silent when on top of the open towers.

Bit like when you walk across the rail bridge near Topolin in Livonia - 20 metres above the water and your feet make a splashing sound :P
