View Full Version : 3rd party sound packs - A potential product?

Bump if you like the idea:

Heres the thing. We've all seen the various mission packs available from X1 and the like. While of a good quality they are very labour intensive products to produce there remains an argument that the end user could easily make these things for his/herself so why bother buying. Third party aircraft are out of the question too, so the scope for add-ons is somewhat limited compared to some other titles.

So I was thinking, is there a market for speech or ambient noise packages that we could purchase and use to replace our existing ones? If they were available I'd happily spend Au$20+ on each of the following:

Chinese speech pack - You could put this in the French Actor folder and use Il-2 Mat to swap the markings to Chinese.

New US speech pack - Get rid of Richie Cunningham and the rest of the kids from Happy Days once and for all! (50 bucks for that one http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif)

Russian female voice pack - How cool would that be?

USN speech pack - Hard-bitten cigar chomping types.

Tuskegee Airman voice pack.

WAAF ground controllers.

And last but not least:

Foul-language enhancement pack Vol.1-2 & 3 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif

So, what do you think? Would you pay to download any of these? Can you think of any others? Surely someone amongst us must have the skills to exploit this ready market.

All comments welcome.

Seriously, I would really like a Russian accented voice pack for the Russian Campaigns and one for the Japanese campaign so I can hear in English, but feel I am a part of that relevant country.

In Call of Duty you have to fight with the Russians and they use English Voices with a strong Russian accent. It sounds really good. If only stuff like this could be transferred to FB/IL2/PF.

In fact it would not have to be strictly Russian as long as it sounded like it. It would also be nice to have the little distortions and effects like the English pack has.

Personally, I kinda like the opportunity to learn a little German along the way http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I'm sure by the end of my offline campaign, I'll be very proficient in asking people to clear my six in German http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'd definately pay for a voice pack or two. There are a BUNCH they could do. If anyone needs a young sounding 20 yr old voice to do something just lemme know http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I would. I'd like to see more realistic sounds all around, not just voices. The one thing I'd REALLY like though is accented english for non-english speaking armies. Especially done well like the british voices.

i am with ClnlSandersLite, more realistic sounds and a Swedish speech pack http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

What I want most is a decent sound pack, like the one off Bellum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Thats more important to more than voice packs, most of the time im online so theres no need for them.

Realistically though, a paid for sound pack would have to be quiet extensive and/or include extra goodies to make it worth my 15-20.
