{{sound}}
*'''Ambient''' - Sounds which are added by the leveldesigner in order to bring life to the map. Mood enhancers, if you wish. Ex: machines, birds, waterfalls and background music/loops.
 
**''Ambience'': Sounds not tied to an object. Music/background hums. Added purely to enhance the atmosphere.
 
**''Environmental'': Sounds that imitate an object from the world. Such as machines, birds, crickets and other animals, a stream of water, churchbells, rattling chains etc.
 
 
 
*'''SFX (or Soundeffects)''' - We have adopted this term for any sound that is played from within the code. That basically means leveldesigner wont have to bother about them. Ex: footsteps, impact sounds, weapon sounds, the pickup-loot sound, porcelain-cup-dropped-on-marble sounds etc.
 
**''Game'': Certain "special" sounds as levelstart, objective_complete/failed, main menu sounds etc
 
**''Movement'': Footsteps etc
 
**''Tools'': Weapons and gadgets
 
**''World'': Collisions, objects (open doors etc)
 
 
 
*'''Voices'''<br>
 
Things spoken or expressed by the inhabitants of the world. That includes:
 
Humans, zombies, belchers, and any other creatures we might come up with.
 
 
 
 
 
===File formats===
 
*'''The format we are using for SFX:''' Ogg, 44100Hz, 96kbps, mono<br>
 
**'''The format we are using for Ambient:''' Ogg, 44100Hz, 160kbps, stereo OR Ogg, 44100Hz, 96kbps, mono depending on what kind of sound it is. (That means, use your common sense. Does the sound really benefit from stereo format?)
