Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
Struggled to find the right sounds without any noise for your historic backgrounds? Boom Library might help you. Designing the sound for a medieval scene can be quite difficult. Where do you look for the similar vibrations? How do you find the perfect tune?
Due to the lack of smartphones, TV or even a well-written book, the people back then didn’t sit in their houses the whole day long making no noise at all. Instead they went out on the streets, to the market, they camped, they worked, they drank, the chattered, they yelled, they farmed, they were very noisy or at least busy in a very diverse way. We sound designers should keep that in mind when designing a convincing medieval scene that covers that multi-facetted background ambience.
Designers from Boom Library went out to some of the most authentic medieval heritage sites in Germany in order to record the right sounds and, in the end, present, a toolkit for all kinds of medieval background soundscapes called “MEDIVEAL LIFE“. The pack features all kinds of medieval sound effects with hundreds of different sound sources from the medieval times within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – CONSTRUCTION KIT and a collection of completely pre-designed and ready-to-use medieval places within the MEDIEVAL LIFE – DESIGNED edition. The MEDIEVAL LIFE – BUNDLE contains both.
