Object Sound (Soundinfo) Fix for Maxis Objects
« on: 2008 October 07, 16:08:25 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT



Objects make distinctive noises when Sims are interacting with them. Some objects like chairs or tables have several different kinds of noises, depending on the material they were made of.
For example, base game wooden dining chairs make distinctively different noises from the cheapest plastic Patio chair or expensive Colonial dining chairs. Base game 3-tiled Victorian dining table with glass tabletop makes a different noise from the base game wooden Talking Table.
Sound files used by an object are referenced by STR# 0x94 (soundinfo), e.g. base game Colonial dining chair has two lines in STR# 0x94, cloth (cushion sound) and wood (chair leg sound).

However, object sounds were largely disregarded in all subsequent EPs. A lot of EP objects have wrong object sound, like Seasons roofed bench with a cushy sofa noise. Some end tables and most bars will not make any sound at all, because they don't even have STR# 0x94.

This mod fixes the wrong object sounds on most Maxis objects, including chairs, sofas, tables, bars, counters and doors.

Yes, I'm picky about these little things. I know it's something very trivial, perhaps no one would care except an OCD-like type like me. Nonetheless, it was one of pet peeves of mine. Wrong object noises are offensive to me. Cheesy


For reference:

Dining Chairs: (cushion) cloth, plas, wood, office / (chair leg) wood, metal, office
Living Chairs / Sofas / Bar Stools: cloth, leath, wood
Tables: wood, glass, lino, marble, plastic, metal
Doors: wdchp, wdexp, wdglass, metal
Gates: gwdchp, gwdexp, gmetalchp, gmetalexp
Stairs: wood, cment, metal, marble


Installation:

 Place in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads folder.
 (Or in a subfolder of Downloads folder.)


Changelog:

 v1.0: Initial release.

You're not alone -- wrong sounds annoy me too. I hate it when a sim is wearing boots and sounds like it's walking around barefoot. Smiley  I did notice some of these, too, so it's great having a fix.

I'm not totally OCD enough to notice the sounds much unless they're jarringly wrong. However, I did go through my entire sims wardrobe assigning the right shoe sounds with outfits, when I used jfade's Wardrobe Wrangler.

I love how you fix stuff I haven't even noticed.

Certainly a must have. I too use the Wardrobe Wrangler to correct the footprint sounds of outfits even if my game seems to have trouble playing certain sound effects. Sometimes if I accidentally expand the cheat window it is full of error messages about not being able to find the sounds needed for objects or footprints.
