Warbird's "Improved Saber Sounds Frequency Mod" is a bit peculiar. From the start, I was never really sure what its purpose was. I know that the author clearly said it in the readme, but the practicality of adding more sounds to lower the frequency at which each individual sound is played is a but odd. It seems something that belongs in a much larger mod. And it's not even entirely a sound mod, as the screenshots tell you. It's just a pack of randomly selected changes.

The saber sounds which have been modified don't quite sound all that good. There is nothing wrong with adding all sorts of new sounds, but not when the integrity of the sounds is sacrificed—quality not quantity is a significant problem with the mod. I liked the author's choices for sounds, but the movie rips are not of high quality, and I can often hear part of the movie in the sound. I, once or twice, could even identify the Star Wars film from which the sound had been ripped, which isn't a good sign. It's not a good sign for the mod because the sounds need to be independent from the films, indistinguishable and beautiful, and it's also not a good sign for me if I can identify a one second sound from a film.

Also changed were some of the clash effects, which I actually liked. They were irrelevant to the mod and had nothing to do with it, but alone, they were still likable. They looked far more accurate to the films, in their largeness and sudden flashes of brightness. They consisted of the saber flare when sabers collide and changing the sparks, which I liked a lot better than the default, for they looked more natural. These would be more recommendable, however, if they were included within a much larger mod or within a small saber effects mod, but with a sound mod?

I can't recommend sounds that really don't sound good, and aren't edited well, and they just lack purpose or direction. Sounds need to take you somewhere, to make the game more enjoyable because you are hearing different, more film-canon sounds. The saber swing sounds sound more like just moving a saber, which gives this mod a lazy feeling—a lazy Jedi is unheard of. These sounds never really some together and make an experience, and then effects are thrown in… it's a bit of a mess.

TITLE: Improved Saber Sounds Frequency
AUTHOR: [DragoN].Warbird*
E-MAIL: warbird1@interia.pl
WEBSITE: http://www.indiglo.boo.pl

FILENAME: improved_saber_sounds_frequency_mod.pk3
DATE RELEASED: 12 November 2005

PROGRAMS USED: Programs? My brain :P Ah and everlasting notepad.exe :)

CREDITS: Hmm, this time no one deserve this category :P Maybe sounds - rips from movie - so Lucasfilm/LucasArts/Raven Software at least.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Just unpack the archive and insert *.pk3 file into your /base folder.

DESCRIPTION: This mod adds several changes with JA sound system of frequency.
Ever being sick after hearing the same nine shots of saber sounds with different combination and random play? That's right JA have only 9 saber block sounds (KotOR 1 have only 1!). This mod adds 40 saber block sounds (the best from all Episodes) with more variety and more random combination, it also adds 14 new sounds to deflecting blaster bolts event (using saber af corz), so no more only 3 sounds. And it adds 5 sounds to saber cut event, but only when cutting static, destroyable objects (e.g. comps in CC in siege hoth map), so no more only 1 sound. Next, it changes swoop explosion sound and it's effect. It adds better, more moviestyle saber deflect effect (no sparks like in movie), also it changes sabers default flare. Saber sparks (during clashes etc.) has been reduced to necessary amount (notice that in movie there are none, but removing them all would incerase game difficulty :P), also when you hit an enemy with saber it will also produce some sparks (like in KotOR series). Blaster fire and alt-fire sound also has been changed. And a little change in spark texture. That's it. A few screenshots are presenting saberflare, saber deflect flare and sparks during cutting an enemy. Don't be fooled about their sizes, anyway they looks much better in action :) Unfortunatelly there is no way to present sounds. I hope you find this mod useful. I hope this mod add a new reality to our game :) Hope you enjoy this mod! (I know, I'm naive ;) ).

BUGS: Let's just say there is no bugs available at this time, sorry :P



Forgive me if I made some grammar/spelling errors. But frankly, did I make some mistakes? :)
In this sentence or maybe in previous or maybe in previous previous previous previous of previous? :P Tell me @ warbird1@interia.pl :P

Thank you for your attention.
