Take On Music

Recommended Posts

For chilled, night/dawn/dusk missions, you can't beat an Oceansize instrumental track:

ATC chatter, with possibility to tune into an ATIS (listen to the sample) service. ATIS and to some extent ATC chatter should be possible using Arma sentence building.

I never listened to music in flightsim. On long flights I'd fall asleep on autopilot just listening to the engines (twin piston was my favorite aircraft type, Cessna 421, Beech Baron B58, and DC3 by far the best for me) while I dozed off to dreamland :D

If there is good weather simulation, I'd like to be able to read a METAR or maybe even a TAF.

As for...

Although, rather more worryingly, he's been know to 'yam' to a bit of 'Italian Hardcore'

I feel sorry for you guys :p

If there is to be music, I would suggest going for something that doesn't demand attention listening to. Instrumental, chillout, ambient, downtempo. Look up Morlack (Lucid Dreams) or Xerxes for examples of what I have in mind. Long instrumental soundscapes without any lyrics going - nice background sounds where you don't thump the beat with your feet (not recommended in a helicopter :D).

If possible the "My Music" folder would be great, so people can listen to whatever they like.

That being said, I'll probably listen to some nice electronic chill, maybe vocal house and such.

One of the most important things for me would be a system in place that lowers the music volume when there is something on the radio, so you can hear this better.

I have seen this system once, when I was flying with some private plane that had a CD radio in it. The trick was that the music doesn't go completely away, just very low volume.

The game "Aces High II" has this implemented. The radio is big part of combat, so when a squadmate comes on the radio, your music or sound effects are dimmed so you can clearly hear the person on the radio.

When I fly, I like to listen to:

  • First the radio communication , air traffic and control. as well as weather information broadcast with real ingame data:pray:

I think that while flying, this will bring up the immersion even more.

this.

Some really great links here, guys, thanks very much!

A brief 'analysis' would suggest two things, (aside from the mind-numbingly obvious fact that people like different kinds of music :o)

  1. it's probably best to have something a little more instrumental
  2. Radio chatter plays a big part, both functionally and ambiently
  3. People would like to play their own music

Anyway, blissfully ignoring the fact that was actually 3 things, I wplayed through most the suggestions in the background (fyi - no; yes) while testing some missions (namely: Community Preview). Good stuff, one and all!

I will leave you with this one, though:

Comparing this helicopter pilot with my skills i seem to fly like a retarded monkey, missing at least 1 arm and being blind on one eye :(

But nice choice of music ;)

ok here we go:

gotta have some ACDC for the low-fly-badass-moments!

PI1RIZlTzdo

if you have the Huey- you have Fortunate son. out of question. :j:

ok for the random flying moments i recommend something like this:

not too dominant but still creating this "exploring" feeling where you want to see whats hiding behind the next hill. And isnt this exactly what you strike for?

aTLSSztuWTs

watched it during some flying footage and thought it matches pretty well. Especially starting from

corresponds it very good with the south asian terrain.

Also tracks like this are very interesting for trailers or the ingame music

oh and mybe an community made trailer showcasing the Merlin doing his job with the army strong theme in the bg would be a very nice idea ;)

And because I can't help but barge into my own question...

Iknefj-NY3I

My first 'helicopter' game; although it was for the SEGA Megadrive II.

We're looking at a number of ways of getting music into the game, likely to be a mixture of unique tracks made in house and a wider selection of music, too.

Best,

RiE

Ah, your post just brought back memories of when I used to play Jungle Strike on my ol' Sega Genesis :)

BTW, I would like to see a custom radio feature, such as what you see in the GTA series on PC. Just put your music in a custom music folder and it will play ingame.

Desert Strike was my first.

Still a great theme.

Was about 5 when I got it, it was one of those EA classic titles for the Mega Drive, was bought from Woolworths too. :D

Damn, I feel old. :(
