The Primary function of this add-on replaces the distant fire effects with ones from JSRS 4 for Arma 3 and adding new bulletcracks to replace the "whiz" sound effects. It also replaces a few of the weapon fire effects. Eventually I will replace all weapon effects, and add more variation to the distant effects per gun. AK and Pistol firing sound replacements from STCOP Weapon Sound Pack Suppressor Firing Noises from STCOP Weapon Sound Pack
Huge thanks to unethicalrus and Souvlaki on the Anomaly Discord for their help. This addon wouldn't be a thing without them!
Also thanks to Lord Jarhead and the JSRS team for their amazing work with the ARMA 3 mod that some of the files are sourced from.
Weapon fire sounds are from STCOP Weapon Pack 3.0

Extract the "gamedata" folder into your Anomaly 1.5 Beta 3.0 Main Folder.
Replacement weapon sounds for every weapon.
5 layers of audio with different distances at which they play, Close, Mid, Distant, and Far with a Trail layer in between these to add echo and intensity to nearby fire. (Vanilla beta 3.0 has 2 layers total)
Different distances that each type of firearm can be heard, with Pistols/SMGs being shortest, AR's further, DMR's even further, and Sniper Rifles as the loudest. Also includes new bullet cracks to help with the atmosphere of firefights.
mid-range gunshots are a bit too quiet (100m-200m)
the balance of the different layers needs to be adjusted and fine tuned
add suppressed weapon sound attenuation and rework suppressed weapon sounds
add stereo gunshots for better sound
add more distant effects for different types of weapons for more variation
Let me know if you run into any other issues and I'll do my best to address them!
Some videos where you can hear the distant effects.
