    Hi all,

    i've created a soundbank with many different sounds. There is also the twittering of birds. I've created EVENT_ and also AC_AUDIO_ and everything works fine You can hear the sounds loud and clear, but how can i control the sound so that it can only be heard during the day. My birds for example or is it impossible?

    Should be possible.

    I would create a condition with a simple day/night lut and assign it to

    VOLUME =

    Thank you for the hint. I just experimented a bit without success. but it's definitely just a minor problem with the settings.

    [CONDITION_...]
    NAME = BIRDS_SILENT
    INPUT = AMBIENT
    MIN = 0
    MAX = 0
    LUT = (|0=0|89=0|81=1|180=1)

    Now i will try it with VOLUME =

    Unfortunately I have not yet found a way to deactivate something overnight but only to activate it, such as illuminated windows, buildings or billboards.

    That condition needs tweaking...
    With that lut, you need to use sun angle, so INPUT = SUN

    Secondly, your min and max should reflect 0 and 1, not both zeros

    Sorry for the late response. Had realy big problems with my health but in the meantime i have resolved my timed ambient sound like that:

    • Created a soundbank with different bird melodies
    • In the ext_config i've putted the following lines:

    [EVENT_...]
    ID = common/ambience/birds2
    REVERB_RESPONSE = 0
    DIRECTION = 0, 0, 1
    VOLUME = BIRDS_VOLUME
    CAMERA_INTERIOR_MULT = 1
    CAMERA_EXTERIOR_MULT = 1
    CAMERA_TRACK_MULT = 1
    POSITION = 87.8114, 25.0295, -45.0341

    [CONDITION_...]
    NAME = BIRDS_VOLUME
    INPUT = SUN
    LUT = (|0=5|90=5|90=0.0|180=0.0|)
    LAG = 0​


    Now the birds are singing from sunrise to sunset and runs like a charm.

    Greetings
    Jojo
