My original 2008 copy of SoaSE has gone walkabout, so I cannot check this for myself right now.
My question is this: Were the original TEC weapon fire sound effects not much...'beefier' than they are now in Rebellion? At first I wondered if they had changed at all, but I'm fairly certain now that they messed around with them in the Rebellion expansion.
Particularly in the case of their autocannons, it only just occurred to me that I remember the TEC heavy cruiser having this really powerful mass driver sound effect that reminded me of Homeworld's weapon sounds somewhat. Now it has a rather pathetic firing sound that makes the ships with the weapon sound too delicate for my liking.
Is this just my imagination, or have others noticed this? If you have, can you point me to a mod that adds the original sounds back in, or perhaps a way of doing it myself?
PS: For any folks from Stardock or Ironclad that may happen across this post, the time has come for a SoaSE sequel. Search your feelings. You know it to be true.
