      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

Queueing up a large work order on chemistry bench blasts the sound effect

Recommended Posts

When I queue up a large work order, for example 400 sparkpowder, I head the sound effect (the metal clang) super loud, and like it's being played 100x at the same moment, to the point where all other game sounds are completely drowned out for about 3 seconds. I believe it used to only play the sound effect once and not take over the sounds.

I played it on the weekend too, and with desktop speakers, and it was MASSIVELY loud to the point I thought my speakers may be damaged. Turns out, I actually may be suffering from perm hearing loss now, in my left ear with that speaker located 30" (2 1/2 ') away from me. Currently 95% hearing in left ear gone.

Yeah, I can confirm that the "clang" sound when crafting is significantly louder when you are crafting multiples of something.  Sparkpowder, narcotics, bug repelant, clay, preserving salt, ect.   the initial sound is much louder than following commands.  As in if you want to craft 800 sparkpowder and you can only queue 200 at a time, the first 200 you queue is much louder than the following 600 added to the queue
