Default "sound-radar"...official opinion on it?

hey guys. i know its been brought up quite a few times already, but never with an official statement on the matter.
i know from real life flying, that i cant hear another airplane taking off right next to me, when my engine is pretty much at idle.at least i cant remember that i've ever heard another aircraft as soon as my engine is running.

yet in dcs i can hear other aircraft often a couple of hundreds meters behind me, while i have the engine running at full revolutions.

i dont want to stir anything up here, but i would love to hear the opinion on that matter from some ED official, whether they think everything is ok as it currently is, or whether there will be some tuning in future.

thx in advance!

Agreed, would like to hear EDs and the communities thoughts.

I think that hearing any other airplane outside, is nearly impossible, especially with cannopy closed. The way that sound in DCS works makes suprise attacks hard, because mostly the enemy knows you are there, before you can actually start shooting.

At the same time, I would like the in cockpit sounds of guns and airframe (buffeting, hit sounds etc.)more pronounced. IRL the pilot has vibrations and feels impacts/shots. In game sound helps to mitigate that lack of feedback.

In conclusion, I would like to see the sound design reworked, so that we have more vivid sounds of our own airplane, while sounds outside the cockpit are nearly impossible to hear.

This definitely needs some attention... I wish I could hear well enough to find other aircraft by sound at work

I think these may make it difficult to turn and see/hear a bandit on your tail
