Annoyed by the Shovel's audio not playing? well forget that sh*t! POSTAL III now has proper Shovel noises! cling-clang!
I always found it very annoying that my favorite melee weapon had no sounds of it's own. I was going to play around with POSTAL 2's audio or even some audio from other sources, but turns out, it was unnecessary, because there are a bunch of unused audio sounds for the shovel in the game files. drawing, picking up, and hitting sounds were found in the game files, but, as you know, there is no way to drop weapons you pick up in POSTAL III, contrary to it's previous entry, and even then, some weapons just default to the standard ammo pickup or don't even have any pick up noises. for example, the Shotgun has pick up and pumping noises, but those are completely unused. so the shovel pick up noises are gonna have to go unused. however, you can enjoy that metallic clanging (more like dinging) noise when hitting stuff and that weird sound when drawing it from your trenchcoat! enjoy!
