I would like to be able to adjust the volume of the different sounds. In order to hear certain sounds at a reasonable level, it is necessary to keep the volume turned up loud enough that other sounds are incredibly loud. Walking, climbing ladders and other effects are super loud compared with opening chests and doors, mining blocks, and even mob noises. I read about a 'sounds.json' file I could maybe edit, which allows volume adjustments between 0.0 and 1.0 for each effect, but I have been unable to find this file. It may be only on the Pocket Edition. Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I know this is not possible at present in the game. Just a volume slider for music and another for overall volume. I really hope they change that in future updates. In my main base I have wooden floors and the sound of me walking across them is insanely loud, same with walking on dirt or gravel...
Thanks, I think. I downloaded it. No idea what to do with it though, I'm a bit of an older player and not very technically minded I'm afraid. What do I do with the files you say I need above? it's like a different language, lol Will doing this give me a user-friendly display in the sound settings like in the Java version where I can adjust the different types of in-game volumes?
Those are all the files you need to make your own resource pack. You basically use it as a guide and replace whatever you want with your own in order to make the game look and feel the way you want it to. If you don't want to include something in your pack, just omit it. The hardest part is messing with the .json files. Those will require some programming knowledge or you can just tinker with them a little at a time and see what changes. It is a bit of an undertaking if you've never done anything like it before. There's also a behavior pack that I didn't link which allows you to change other aspects of the game like how mobs function. And don't worry about your age. There's no such thing as an age limit to gaming. I'm a 37 y/o Marine Corps veteran and love gaming.
As far as getting the sound settings like in Java, I'm not sure. I'm still new to programming myself. If I have to guess, there might be something in the UI folder.
Thanks for your reply, I will try and look into things further with the sound issues. Probably will ask one of my sons who knows his way around a computer better than me Nice to know there are other more mature Minecrafters around. I've only got about 10 years on you, so I'm not 'old' old or anything - just feel that way sometimes Good to know people of all ages and walks of life play!
