[MOD] Quieter Shipyard Anchor Sound

Posted on Monday, November 2, 2020

The anchor sound for shipyards is much louder than other sounds, especially the unanchor sound.  There have been complaints about this for years, but the sound is still the same.  I have finally found a way to "fix" this.

I found a file that defines what sounds to use for some of the sounds.  The anchor sound is in the file.  There are other sounds listed for other situations, so I experimented with different sounds until I found one that is quieter and seems like a reasonable sound for anchoring a shipyard.

I made a mod that changes the sound to the quieter one.  I don't know if it works in existing games or not.  It's worth trying if you have a game going.  It works in new games.  I use it all the time.

You can get the mod here.
