    Not exactly, there's a little more to it than that.

    You can hear the effect better in the video below. You'll hear little nuances around the aircraft based on your position to it and when they flyby, for example you are sat at an airport, you should be able to locate the position of the plane better by ear.

    1st clip shows 4.5 and before, 2nd clip shows current and there are irrelevant Coffman test bits at the end.

    unfortunately I have 7.1 and I'm not hearing explosions or hits on the aircraft now. or the water explosions sounds when you hit the water.

    Thanks for the extra information, Slipstream, but there was some basic incomprehension in the whole human race because the new immersive 3D sound experience was described as "Added dynamic panning to aircraft exterior view" which I myself initially assumed was a camera effect and that the phrase was written in the wrong place in the Release Notes. I wasn't alone in not understanding the intention of those words and made the simplest explanation I could. I would say, going between listening in 4.55 and 4.56, the sound experience is now fuller, richer, spatial, directional, while in comparison sounds in 4.55 are flatter and less interesting. Good work.

    Re: Release Notes for Blitz 4.56

    Can someone from TF explain to me the OnBuildingKilled() vs. OnBuildingDestroyed() code?

    OnBuildingKilled() is the code that we've been asking to be fixed and it appears that it's not fixed in MP (tested on dedicated server and local hosted and it behaves as before).

    So if OnBuildingDestroyed() is the code that has been fixed, what was done to it exactly? If possible can we have a copy of the script that was used to test that it was working (similar to the missions with the Rearm/Refuel script given) so we can see exactly what methodology was used?

    I join the question from No.401_Wolverine.
    I also launched a server today, where I started a proven mission with the OnBuildingKilled() method script. That mission still works in new patch 4.56 for single but doesn't work in multiplayer.
    I could not find the OnBuildingDestroyed() method in the code of the new patch 4.56

    I've directed our code guys to this question so hopefully you'll have an answer soon.

    Glad it wasn't just me. I thought I might be doing something wrong. I spent about 2 hours trying to locate this method last night as well. I thought I was doing something wrong. I still might be...it's been a while.

    So which was fixed in the patch? OnBuildingDestroyed() or OnBuildingKilled()? Patch notes say OnBuildingDestroyed().

    Because as Cassius and I have tested, OnBuildingKilled() is still non-functional in multiplayer. No change from day one release of Cliffs.

    Testing using this code:

    Code:
    public override void OnBuildingKilled(string title, Point3d pos, AiDamageInitiator initiator, int eventArgInt)
        {
            base.OnBuildingKilled(title, pos, initiator, eventArgInt);
    
            string BuildingName = title;
            string BuildingArmy = "";
            string PlayerArmy = "";
            string sectorTitle = "";
            string sectorName = GamePlay.gpSectorName(pos.x, pos.y);
    
            if (GamePlay.gpFrontArmy(pos.x, pos.y) == 1)
            {
                BuildingArmy = "England";
            }
            else if (GamePlay.gpFrontArmy(pos.x, pos.y) == 2)
            {
                BuildingArmy = "France";
            }
            else
            {
                BuildingArmy = "Neutral";
            }
    
            if (initiator.Player.Army() == 1)
            {
                PlayerArmy = "RAF";
            }
            else if (initiator.Player.Army() == 2)
            {
                PlayerArmy = "Luftwaffe";
            }
            else
            {
                PlayerArmy = "Unknown";
            }
    
            GamePlay.gpLogServer(null, "BUILDING:" + BuildingName + " in " + BuildingArmy + " was destroyed in sector " + sectorName + " by " + initiator.Player.Name() + " from the " + PlayerArmy + ".", new object[] { });
        }
    So either it's not fixed or the code above is somehow locked to singleplayer action only. If the latter, can someone with a better mind than mine explain why? Better yet, can we get the script that was done to test that it worked before the patch was released? That way those of us who build missions can learn from it or, failing that, can at least give further assistance into proving or disproving the fix that was done.

    Thanks.

    Re: Release Notes for Blitz 4.56

    This is the code running on the ATAG server.

    Code:
    public override void OnBuildingKilled(string title, Point3d pos, AiDamageInitiator initiator, int eventArgInt) {
    
    		        string[] parts = title.Split(new string[] { SEPARATOR }, StringSplitOptions.None);
    			DateTime now = DateTime.Now;
                            long pk = writeDestroyed(DESTROYED_TYPE_BUILDING, parts[2], "", now);
    			if (initiator.Player != null) { 
    				writeDestroyer(getInitiatorDescription(initiator), initiator.Player.Name() , pk); 
    			} else {
    				writeDestroyer(getInitiatorDescription(initiator), initiator.Actor.Name(), pk); 
    			}
            }

    Thank you. We will start testing it.

    Re: Release Notes for Blitz 4.56

    Hi guys

    Not sure if it is just my system, or whether others have been experiencing the same sound anomalies since the 4.56 update. Below are 2 of my most noticeable changes:

    1. Engine Sound: At startup, there appears to be 2 separate and distinct engine sounds. It is more noticeable as when I increase the throttle to about 22%. So much so that I have actually looked around for a second aircraft that may have started up next to me, but no aircraft is present.

    2. Machine Gun Fire: I've read posts of others reveling in the new gun sound. Perhaps this is something experienced in an external view. For me, I've been flying "realistic" which does not permit external views and if I do not see the tracers leaving my wings, I'd be hard pressed to know if my guns have fired or not. There is a sound present but it is hardly noticeable ... more like a tick, tick ticking sound. Not to appealing in my assessment.

    3. I know, I know, I said I had only 2 comments, but while writing I thought of something else that I find less than appealing when it come to the sound files. That is the sound emitted by the DH82A better known as the Tiger Moth. When starting this aircraft, and the engine is running at a low RPM, the sound emitted is more like a "clicking-hiss-pop" than that of an engine. It is only once the RPM's are increased that it actually begins to sound like and engine. I first noticed this when I was practicing in this aircraft in preparation for the ATAG Tiger Moth event. When I first started playing around with this aircraft, it took me awhile to realize that I had actually successfully started the engine ... not by the sound that it was making, but by the blur of my rotating propeller. It was only when I was able to increase the RPM's that the aircraft began to emit noticeable engine sounds. I had hoped this had been addressed in the 4.56 update, but sadly it had not.

    Those are my simple observations regarding the new sound files. Overall, I am constantly thrilled by this SIM and often wonder what it must have been like in its "hay-day" when the servers where plugged with active participants. I've only been flying this SIM since September 2018 and have logged a mere 706 hours.

    I felt Spit/Hurri MG's sound more faint in external view than in internal, and that their sound volume in internal view are OK, just the engine sound could by less annoying.

    BTW - Is important that sound volume in game options is set in 100%, or some sounds are missed.

    Re: Release Notes for Blitz 4.56

    When testing OnBuildingKilled() code I did notice the two distinct engine sounds in the Spitfire (didn't test in any others). It seemed most noticeable when executing negative G and cutting out the engine. Sometimes I would get a quieter engine sound (almost like the external view sound) underneath and then the normal loud interior engine sound would kick back in. It was certainly odd.

    It may sound a bit corny but I really do appreciate these new 109 gun sounds. The fast shushy shushy shushy shushy of the mg 34s in my opinion really does it ..There may be sims that are prettier they may have this and that but you know what this sim has...SOUL!

    4.56 notes still say OnBuildingDestroyed() fixed. Since that's not a valid function in the game and the real function isn't fixed, might want to remove that from the notes.

    Not a question of permissions, but of downloads having been moved elswhere and the OP not being updated...

    Here are the correct links (also updated in OP):
