[Feature] Zoom dependant sound volumes
« on: January 11, 2020, 08:35:50 PM »
What's the request?
It's just as simple as the title, it would be nice if the zoom would affect the sound volume.

Why?
I have learned that there currently the distance from the viewport affects the sound volume.
This leads to very many loud soundeffects when zooming out with a city in the center, because there will be many noisy objects near to the center of the viewport, especially if there are many level crossings.
I really never want to be near a level crossing in Britain, they are so **** annoying, but that's just a sidenote.

How?
Well, again I don't know the exact implementation, so it's hard to tell, but I guess James already has some thoughts about this.

That's the last one for Today.
Eventually see you back tomorrow on Bugreport Sunday.
