    I've opened this thread for you all unit creators.I think it's a good idea to post here interesting sounds for unit animations for customize or accurate all the unit creations, and discuss in what kind of units will suit better:) .I thought that a sounds thread will be very useful to the creation & customization forum, but I have posted it in the Unit graphics forum, due to the utility it could have to unit creation;)

    I invite you to post interesting sounds.Maybe could be useful:D
    By the way, I attach some interesting sounds for WW2 units (my favourite era;))

    These are 2 sounds files for tanks run animations, taken from Captain nemo Civ2 scenarios;)

    There are 2 sounds really interesting.The first one called "Rocket" is a good sound for the attack animation of units like a bazooka infantry, german panzerschreck, nebelwerfer unit (Kentonio is working on it:cool: ), or similar units using rockets. The second one called "Flame" is an interesting sound for a flamethrower infantry unit.
    Enjoy it!:D

    I have finished my Japanese Imperial Marines unit, but have not posted it here yet, because I am having a problem with the sound. I took a gunshot from another game, it is a .wav file, and should be compatable, but it won't play the sfx, it just makes this clicking noise. I know there's an amb file for the attacks, but I don't want to use it, I just want to have the sound effect I chose. My name for the .wav file and the name in the .ini file is the same. I know when I first downloaded Kentonio's Katyusha unit, I had the same problem. Anyone know what the problem is?

    Here are some WW2 fighter sounds:). The one called "Earljet" is designed for German Jet airplanes (Me-262,Ar-234...etc, not a Me-163 Komet, it is a rocket fighter;)).The called "Fighter1" and "Fighter2" are very good sounds for run or attack animations of WW2 fighters. All are taken from Close Combat IV
    Enjoy!!!:D
    To nonno: Please tell in the thread how do you adjust to the proper level the unit's sounds, and all of us could know how to do it;) Thanks!

    I just rememberd.....:D


    How to convert any wav. sound file to use for Civ3:

    Go on your computer on the start menu bar and go to programs/accesories/multimedia and click on SOUND RECORDER.

    All Civ3 wav files formats are at 22,050 Hz, 16bit Mono.

    Click on open and search for the wav file you need to convert.

    Then click on PROPERTIES.

    On the next screen you click on [CONVERT NOW]

    Then search for the wav format listed above hit ok and save.

    And yor done!


    Hope this helps :yeah:

    Thanks a lot of this information. I'm using too Sound Recorder to record the sounds I post, but are in another frequency. Now I'll post my sounds in the correct format ;)

    There are some interesting sounds for tanks attack animations.
    The one called "Tankgun1" is a very good sound, but it's very big for Civ3:( :(
    Enjoy it!!!:D

    which brings up the age old question; does size matter? :p

    but seriously, I have all the sounds from ToT and Alpha Centauri and could make those available, but I don't want to ost them if they aren't going to work.:rolleyes:

    how do you edit an .amb file?
