Audio Update
This update adds extra water audio effects to all the current boats and is a straight to live build release so you should get it when you next log in to Steam. Make sure you've opted out of any other Betas.

The audio update falls into 2 main categories...

  1. Stationary Audio
    This is ambient audio played around the boat when it is stationary or nearly stationary. These include water lapping at the side of the boat, gurgles, bubbling and other sounds you would expect on a stationary boat.

  2. Moving Audio
    This includes water noise from the engines/props and slaps, bangs and splashes as the hull hits the water. The intensity of the noise is dependant on speed.

I shall be building an audio mixer so that you can adjust the volume of different sound channels. I've got the scheduled in for next weeks update.

Bug fixes

  1. Fixed the flickering "Tropical Island" biome terrain. May see a little performance improvement from that too.
  2. Fixed scaling on some of the boats which looked a little off.
  3. Adjusted the forward drag on the "Bluefin" so that it slows down faster when engine power is reduced.

Next Update
Please let me know in the forums what you would like me to work on next. Should I concentrate on new boats, new races, race championships, wild life, etc

Let me know in the special pinned forum thread marked "We want this next!"
