I've have always though of Minecraft as a very quiet game. There isn't much music, and don't get me wrong because I love the music, but if you aren't near any animals all you have is the sounds of walking, placing blocks, and breaking blocks. After playing long enough, those sounds become monotonous to your ears (at least they do for me).
There are mods on the PC for what I'm about to suggest, and they've added much to the overall ambiance of the PC version. I would like 4J to make this idea a part of Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition.
Ambient Noises - Click the spoiler for a list of the sounds I would like added to increase the overall atmosphere/ambiance of Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition.
Things like birds tweeting in the trees in forests or when the sun rises...
Frogs/Toads croaking in swamps...
Crickets or the sound of wind in Plains biomes...
Owls at night...
Ocean Noises... Suggest by Last_username_Im_gonna_try
Jungle/Rainforest Noises (For when we get Jungle Biomes)Suggested by Purplemonkey273
I feel like adding a bit more sound and background noise to the worlds in Minecraft would make the game a lot more engrossing and pull you in more. Especially if you play with headphones or a very entertainment system attached to your TV or console.
If you support this idea, please vote and reply to the topic. Don't let it get washed away in the sea of repeat suggestions and locked threads. It's hard to tell if there is support for something when no one replies and lets it get swept under the rug so to speak.
I FOUND A VIDEO SHOWING EXACTLY WHAT I WANT IN MINECRAFT.
That right there is exactly what I would like 4J/C418 to add to Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition. It would make the game a lot more enjoyable, relaxing, and easy on the ears. How anyone could watch that and not want that in Minecraft is beyond me.
Considering I have music shut off to add an extra layer of realism, I would adore having more ambient noises...even if it's just the cave ones.
But I've actually wanted noises such as the forementioned for quite some time.
So I'm not the only one. I'm sure Tekkit has ambient noises like birds, trees waving, etc. If this was incorporated into the Xbox game it would make it feel and sound so much more lively than what it is currently. I support this.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I'm not opposed to it, as long as it doesn't take up significantly more resources. I personally wouldn't use it, I turn off music and leave game sounds at max... but also turn my volume way down, but just loud enough to hear mobs.
I only really pay attention for the sounds of the mobs that attack us.
This is a nice idea... especially compared to the ambient cave noises that are currently in the PC version. Those are creepy. But it would be awesome to come up from underground for days and hear the birds singing to welcome you back.
This would definitely increase the allure of the game for me. I'd probably spend more of my time in forests if it were added. Just to hear the birds chirping and owls hooting. I may even set up shop in plains for a while, just to hear the crickets.
