i actually activated the vegetation touch-sound routine: touching a bush cause now leaf-noise which depends on player speed. I activated this also for Enemies.then i have combined this with the radar-drawn-soundevents.

Please watch the radar and the drawn sound events carefully.
i'm actually not sure if i let the enemie radar draw event in, because it's like a position cheat, but maybe for difficulty level "Tourist" it could be enabled.

I don't think it's cheating. Since many people don't have high end speakers or headphones to clearly hear where sound is coming from. Enabling it for low difficulty levels is great, though maybe you could give players a choice asking if they got good sorround sound device

many thanks for your comment! i never was thinking about the surround problem* (i will tell later, why!).
i also play "only" with stereo, and without headphones, but once i have had implemented this system, the "minimap-effect" overrided the planned gameplay:
i just watched only to the radar and moved just away from the noise events, without looking anymore to environment.
so it breaks massive the planned gameplay of stealth movement by observing excessive the environment and learn every bush, wall, stone, fence and whatever.
and be honestly: if such a "cheat" is accessible in menu, most players will use it, because it looks cool and makes the game (much much much!) easier, but this is not in my interest ^^.
so here is my opinion about:
maybe enabled only in Tourist Mode, which have other drastically drawbacks, so only the faint mooded players can use this, but will miss big parts of the story, weapons and gameplay.

*surround problem
i fear sourround is only possible on w98, i'm even not sure if its working on XP, i never got it to work without massive sound bugs, and on vista, W7, W8.1 and W10 the audiodrivers are way worser than on WXP, i fear -.-

I fully agree with the Bomtvare. Most of the people don't have high end speakers and headphones so it's not so important.

i think he have the statement:
"let the radarsignatures in because of no sourround speakers", but i didn't get your position ?

I mean that it's OK. Also, sorry for not responding sooner, but I didn't get an email for this which is strange.

Thanks for understanding! I relate mostly to karma and emails. Best is to check the comments, but I comment a lot, so it's not so easy to check all of it.
