Thank you for your support on this subject... You obviously fully understand the realities of how important onboard and ambient engine sound and vibration is to the rider in order to race a bike to the best of a riders ability. It's good to know that there are others who understand the importance of this problem, and support a well intentioned change in the name of realism for GP Bikes.
Quote from: HornetMaX on December 21, 2013, 02:16:31 PM100% correct... the physical relations of sound I stated do imply that if you run side by side or very close behind another one's bike the other bike could be heard even louder than one's own bike ... and I want it to be resembled in the game as it is 100% like that. But that is only true for those very close situations, as stated in my little example - the conception of sound is reduced very much with growing distance and you should be able to distinguish between your engine and other bike's engines as soon as there is a bit of distance.... and that is not resembled right now in GPB.... just try it. a bike that is clearly ahead (and even more so if behind you, as sound will only be partially transported forward at high speeds) will be as loud as yours for quite some distance...
Well Stout it depends ... if we assume that the sound originates mostly at the exhaust outlet, sometimes the exhaust of the other bike is closer to your ears than your own exhaust. When you are side by side, the other bike's exhaust is not much farther away than your own one. that might be an argument for introducing a other's bike engine sound slider
Quote from: HornetMaX on December 21, 2013, 02:16:31 PMI think I agree here.... although I wouldn't judge anyone who would want to tone down other bike's sounds even more than realistic, because he (maybe) would argue that he hasn't really a feeling for his bike when running wheel to wheel with others (cause then other's bike is as loud or even louder than one's own bike).... people that are used to run Ducati's might argue that because due to the vibrations they might have a feeling for own bike engine rev's even if they dont hear it that would be an argument for introducing an other's bike engine sound slider
And I do agree that vibrations help in real life, but it's not because we have no vibration in GPB that we should alter other stuff.
