Default [NOT A BUG] F/A-18C Started sounding a bit weird ... ww2 prop ?

Well, sometimes, when it's kinda spooling down when you go up high and go to a corner, it feels as if there's a propellor going off, like one of those WW2 propellors, I don't remember hearing that months back, or last year.


I'll do a recording next time to show the example.

The propeller-like sound in front external views when above 350kts has been there for couples of months now. It was introduced in one of the update earlier this year iirc.
AFAIK, not sure if this sound is realistic to the Hornet and ED has not said anything about it.

I opened a bug report months ago about this "turbo-prop" sound, and apparently it is realistic.
In fact, if you do an F3 view above 350-400Kts, you'll hear the veyr nice and typical whine of the F-18. In F2 view, that whine (without the doppler effect) sounds like a prop.

I read somewhere it's given by a change of air pressure going through the intakes..

Great to know it is realistic to the Hornet. I kind of like the sound.

You may be right, im not sure but i personally feel it's a bug. Never heard any such sound from any turbine IRL. If it is realistic its way overdone. Just looked through the F/A-18 sounds folder and i cant find any sound remotely close to this.

The 400 kts whine is a thing. Pretty subjective to weather it is accurate in the game however. Given the only way to know how it "should be" is by recording the sound, externally from the cockpit, transition from 350ish kts to 400, in flight.

Just some perspective ...

Great perspective.
This clear the air for me on the authenticity of that sound coming from you Lex. Thanks.

I can't find it right now but ED said it is correct. In the F2 view the camera is moving at the same speed like the Hornet that is why it sounds strange, this effect is meant to be listened in the F3 view.

Okay lovely. The effect being realistic then is fine, but if it sounds like a prop just because the camera is moving with the plane in the F2 view you'd have to test if that's also true in real life, sounding like a prop.


I guess it's fine, the problem is I don't seem to like it as it seems out of place, but I'm probably at fault because a true player would need to be a real pilot first, but even real pilots don't have the F2 view heh.


It's one of those oh well things. I guess not going out to F2 view on purpose should help.
