$50 bounty: Unique sound when you spawn, depending on your job

Postby Dawson1917 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 9:34 am #513022

This bounty is for a unique sound played when you spawn, depending on your job. Things like a generic sound of machinery/grinding for Roboticists, or the Papers Please stamp sound for the HoP, boiling water / a pilot light for Chemists, an oven timer ding for Chefs, a shaker shake and pour for the Bartender, a hand drill (or some other tool) for Engineers, some Noir music for the Detective, the sound of a jail cell slamming for Security Officers, etc.

These would add a whole lot to immersion. Hopefully you'll be able to find all of these sounds for free use on public repositories. I don't have the coding experience to implement these myself, or the patience to gather all the sounds, but you could probably lift some of the code from the sounds played when you get turned into various antags.

On a side-note, making a transition from the lobby image to your spawn point was something I was also interested in. Nothing fancy, just a black bar coming from the top of the screen and the bottom of the screen to cover the lobby image, then snapping back after ~2 seconds when you spawn in. It would add even more to getting people immersed in the game.


Please let me know if you are interested, if you had a different price in mind, or a specific payment service (I'd prefer Paypal), need more ideas for sounds, or anything else. Thank you.

the sound of a jail cell slamming for Security Officers,
this would be great for the Warden. Security officers should have something like a police radio snippet instead, like "10-4" or something. Maybe the HoS gets the sound of jackboots marching or a "Hooah!"?

There's a lot of cool ideas to explore here. What would the assistant sound be? The sound of sneakers squeaking? The curator the sound of flipping through a sheaf of paper? Hissing gasses for Atmos? A heartbeat for medical doctors? A pulse machine for the CMO? What would be a proper sciencey sound for the RD and scientists? The captain?

All great ideas. I'll compile a draft list in the morning of potential sounds for each of the jobs. Assistant, CMO, Scientist, RD, Captain, Geneticist and CE are the jobs I imagine will be most difficult to find sounds for

Using a free of copyright sound library. I think this sound of a computer booting up, and the first 5-6 seconds it: Which has its own fade out. Would be a very good fit for the Ai bootup.

Take a look at the sounds in this library OP.

Cyborgs already kind of get their own start noise since the "I LIVE AGAIN!" sound plays.
-CE should probably play teslazap.ogg on spawn or one of the other engine noises.
-The mop wetting sound fits janitor much better than the bin, or some other cleaning sound.
-For cargo tech, maybe the sound of bubble wrap?
-captainannouncement.ogg might fit for Cap in the absence of anything else.
-I still like the idea of sneaker squeaking for assistants. It's very reminiscent of their... activities. (Assistants make up only 13% of station crew, but...)

Captain could literally have like a generic tiny anthem fanfare, or an eagle caw.
Hi, I play Respii Varenos on Bagil.

Maybe the sound of a forklift backing up echoing through a large warehouse/factory? He does control the MULEbots, after all.
Dawson1917 wrote:Cargo Technician - The sound played by wrapping paper?

Wrapping paper, maybe the sounds of metal scraping/hitting the floor in the distance. Could also have the warehouse door creaking open/slamming shut.
Dawson1917 wrote:Botanist - Some wind rushing through grass/trees?

Space wind ain't got nothing to do with botany. Maybe the rustling of leaves (like someone is touching/watering them, with the hum of machines and the gentle sound of water flowing out of a hose.
Dawson1917 wrote:Lawyer - A gavel hitting wood. We already have the sounds for this available to lawyers

Don't forget the sound of an opening briefcase latch, the shuffling of papers, and a dude/gal clearing their throat.
Dawson1917 wrote:Chief Engineer -

Maybe have a cheesy sci fi sound effect along with the sound of a welder/power tools?
Dawson1917 wrote:Geneticist -

Some sci-fi "scanning" sounds along with a monkey screeching, followed by a zap, and two zaps in quick succession afterward (the zapping being the mutation rays, as you can so easily imagine)
Dawson1917 wrote:Virologist - Monkey screech (could be swapped with genetics)
A fume hood turns on, followed by the sound of a couple uses of an eye dropper
Dawson1917 wrote:Scientist -

Randomly selected from an arc emitter zap, slime squish/blorble, or fizzy explosion, followed by frantic, scratchy note scribbling.

And of course, assistant sounds could be selected from a small collection mundane, if not slightly unpleasant effects. Yawning/snoring, sneakers skulking through maintenance as water drips echo, the opening of a soda followed by slurps and a refreshed sigh, the grunts of a guy stretching with toilet flushing in the background. Anything to hint at the fact that assistants are not as helpful as their job title would suggest.

The assistant noise should be a 10 minute clip of a sovereign citizen screaming legal non-sense at a cop before getting beaten and arrested.

Alternatively, just this little bit.

or

HoP would have a paper stamping sound along with a dog bark in the background.
