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.

I am working on a weapon mod that has a custom weapon and suppressor. I've added the L_ES_Prefix and L_ES_maxPlopp values to the weapon, which works properly, but it does not detect when the suppressor is being used. (I still get the shot echo effects.) Vanilla weapon/suppressor combos function as expected with no shot echos when the suppressor is added. What do I need to do in my config to get this to work? Thanks!

The mod is awesome, but I would like you to add reverb to explosions and MG from vehicles and aircraft (GAU-8 in example)

@TurboKapeć yes. It literally says "ES works with every mod including the vanilla sounds"

Authors TY for a update. One of best mods out there honestly. Only sound mod for me that fixes BI's nerf on surround audio when Contact or the pre-release update came out 5.1 never been the same for me without this.

Calling BS honestly.. mod.cpp should not break anything... ony thing mod.cpp does is and quote. "A mod.bin/cpp allows for more detailed information in the Game's expansion menu for mod folders (rather than the engine simply declaring there is a mysterious @yourmod) " nothing more look at its contents... all that does is deal with what you see when you click/hover over the icon in the main/mods screen.

And why would you even put this server side? its a client side mod.. DERP. its the same thing as visual post processing effects but for audio, its not a server thing..
