Evolutive soundscapes and Surround sound

«Sometimes ago, the sun was constantly shining, but since Cubical Drift gave us a true day/night cycle, I can finally sleep a little better. I say "a little better", because the little birds chirping in my ears all night drive me crazy, and it does not seem quite normal. Can you help me?”
Enrico Balt (carrot juice producer on Merx)

I listened to you, Enrico, and now the soundscapes, like the music, are following the course of the day gradually. Notice in the video below how the birds are replaced by crickets and then by a nightlife ambience. With a music that does the same, you can now sleep peacefully.

A few months ago, I have also received this poignant testimony:

"While I was walking quietly on Merx (I was picking dahlias for a nice bouquet for my dearly beloved), a disingenuous Arkuloid came from nowhere, attacked me from behind and grabbed my last health points. Well, the cloning tank brought me "back to life", but it's not always easy to live with the Imperium Machina, you know. "
Cassio P. (farmer clone on Merx)

When I saw the moving testimony of this farmer, I understood the need for surround sound combined with good localization of sound sources. With the combined powers of Wwise and of the Unreal Engine 4, you will ear the exact location of the naughty Arkuloid who just woke up nearby. When starting the game, Wwise automatically detects your sound configuration and adapts to offer you the best sound experience depending on your hardware. From stereo to 7.1, you can now explore the planets safely... Well, watch out for the Imperium Machina, you never know...

I honestly almost lost interest in this game but after looking at the new lighting and music I have regained my excitement for this game :).

Dang, I check back on the site every few days or so, and it seems like there's an update every time I come on! As a long time supporter, I am stoked to see this game make meaningful progress. From the story to the incredibly customization of weapons, classes, and vehicles, I eagerly anticipate Stellar Overloads final release.<3

Agree with Templar, thats an issue that makes me disable in- game music in most of titles. That would be a shame cause the music is really nice.

I love the sounds and music, although I do think the crickets could do with a break occasionally, otherwise the noise may sound repetitive.
