What is Enhanced Soundscape?
Enhanced Soundscape is a sound enhancement modification for ArmA3. It adds additional, weapon-sound related features to the game. Those are hill/mountain reverb and reflections, forest reflections as well as reflections from houses in urban areas.
The basic principle is: Firing a weapon creates a loud noise, noise is waves that swing through the air/make the air swing and those waves get reflected off objects and terrain. The volume levels were done with my soundmod "DynaSound 2" in mind, but ES works with every mod including the vanilla sounds since nothing "core" is changed.

Real-time calculated Hill/mountain reverb:
The feature simulates the reflection of the gunshot-noise when there are hills around you. The further the mountain/hill, the more diffuse the reflection will be. Close terrain will reflect a clear "popp", while mountains in the distance will send back a diffuse, "crumbly" echo. The feature is calculated in real-time and real-environment, meaning you will actually be able to see the mountain the shot got reflected from.

Forest reverb:
So many trees and plants around you create some kind of "half-enclosed space". You will hear a thick layer all around you when firing inside a forest!

Urban reverb:
The many hard surfaces of houses in urban areas give a very direct and harsh reflection when firing a gun. The mod simulates this by playing slapback sounds from the actual walls when firing next to houses in urban areas. The result is a "thickened" feeling when firing your gun.

@LAaxemann, Can I use your mod Enhanced Soundscape as a part of my Zeus Mission Addon Pack in order to make it easier to join the server without hundreds of mods enabled? With indication of your authorship rights.

@Soultechnology, there seems to be a little bug (updating base class) somewhere in there. Easy to fix, just gotta find some time :)

now, as its not specified int he decsription, i thought this would be a vlientside mod like every other sound mod. so far testing shows it is. and if people had potato PCs where even somethign im assuming is light as this could unload it.

so i ask, why, is there dependancies set up, to where i happpened to have this loaded whyll saving a mission and now nobody wihtought this mod can play? i dont see any reason why this mod set itself as a mission dependancy and any chnace of getting that removed?

[Mission is dependant on L_ES_ES_sys] which is this mod apperently.
