Would it be possible, to separate weapon, explosions, etc; volume control from other sound effects ie; ocean, birds, door opening and closing. I realize many players want "realism" and that's fine. I myself, and I believe there would be many others who would like to be able to hear all of the sounds provided in this game. For me, that is exactly what this is, a game. And I would like to be able to enjoy it, hearing those other sounds, without turning down the effect volume so that when a weapon is fired it doesn't wake the baby or hurt my ears.
On a side note, I'm a Vietnam Veteran, I've had my share of "realism".
Thank you for your consideration of this matter.
