Dead Air is a total conversion for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series based on Call of Chernobyl, encompassing all aspects of the game from graphics, audio, and special effects to various gameplay and AI features. The mod evolves from the ideas started in Call of Misery, a previous project of the mod author. Major inspirations for Dead Air include projects such as NLC, MISERY, Autumn Aurora, and OGSE. Dead Air prioritises the development of the game engine’s potential, complexity of gameplay, and attention to detail, along with addressing both the quality and quantity of all content.
The goal of this mod is to overhaul the ambient sounds system and replace various types of sound effects with more convenient ones.
I made this long time ago as a personal thingy, but some people may find this useful so why not sharing it?
This mod is available for:
It's divided into parts, choose whatever you like:
A proper mix between a big collection of old and new ambient sounds (uses some assets from mods such as Complete, AA2, [CoC] Ambient Overhaul, etc.. and games like doom 3, quake 4, metro 2033 and many others. special thanks to those modders).
All of those sounds are adjusted and properly re-commented to offer rich surrounding sounds and more eerie feeling comparing to vanilla.
All levels are affected. even the underground levels. let your ears be the judge.
Replacements that touch various types of sound effects such mutants, anomalies, emissions and more.
Adds more voice lines for some factions as well.
Sounds related to the player
Many changes have been done to sounds such as footsteps, inventory, geiger counter.
Adds new sound effects that weren't available before for pda and flashlight.
A collection of vanilla/new ambient music. the key difference here is that instead of using a single track for each map:
This part will replace the main menu music with a collection of 15 lore-friendly soundtracks.
They are randomized. each time you start the game, you're going to hear a different track.
Just a little touch, this will replace the news/quests notifications sound. comes with 3 flavors:
- Compatible with everything, except mods that alter the sound channels.
- No need for new game, totally safe to install or remove.
- The Environment Sounds part edits Fracture, Bloodsucker, Zombies config files to enable new sound effects. it won't be compatible with mods that alter mutants files.
