Hey Captains!

Welcome to another Weekly Thought.  

 

I love the ship horns. I'm thinking one day World of Warships  might offer customized ones available for sale.

What kind of sounds would you like to hear? Got any horns clips that you think would be fun or funny. If you have an Iwaki Alpha, you know we are not above doing some silly sounds.

Let me hear your thoughts!

(Much like last week, if you simply don't like the horns, then this isn't the thread for you. Move Along. Don't be that guy.)

I think some unique horns for ships like the Nikolai and custom horns to match the crazy perma camos like the Halloween camo. Could even try to record the horns off the surviving museum ships.

Wouldn't you just love to play this just after going undetected? All the enemy sees is open ocean where once an enemy ship sailed, and over the distant waters they just hear:

(go to 0:11)

I also want a camo to go along with this which is a picture of John Cena doing the "you don't see me" hand gesture. I think a CV's flat sides would be perfect for this.

I do like ship horns, as long as it fits the period.  However, I can think of some pretty irritating sounds that others might think are great fun.  Would I assume there would be some kind of toggle that would turn off, or at least control the volume of, this "horn" sound.  Call me a party pooper, but with the imaginations of this crowd, we could end up with anything from fart boxes and wolf whistles, to the UFO blasts from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

It took 9 posts for someone to suggest the General Lee... that is disappointing.

More steam locomotive whistle sounds!

Love the sound of a steam whistle.

 

Also, a bit of feedback about the horns. I think it would be neat if the horns/whistles weren't so one dimensional when you press the button a few times. I'm referring to how it sounds when a steam engine is approaching a railroad crossing and using it's whistle. I'd like to hear the horns(or in this case, the steam whistle's) pitch change as you press and let off the button, much like how it would work in reality as the steam flow weakens when you let off the valve.

Godzilla roar! You know Yamato needs it.

I even teased it once saying Yamato had it. I told the truth adding it should have it. I got a lot of dang straight it should!

That's......kind of an amazing idea.

Though Toho studios might sue us into the dirt, nothing is impossible.

Licensing I here they don’t charge much. You could even try cross marketing. Another one is due out soon

a compendium of sounds, for when the boilers backfire, or for when releasing smoke.

I actually prefer the chime whistles like on most steam locomotives and on a few DDs like Harekaze and Gaede
