This mod adds ambient sounds that you would naturally hear in the setting you are in. (Bats in caves, crickets at night, etc.) It also adds some amazing music. The motivation is to immerse you in Minetest so that it feels more like reality and less like a game.
Initially inspired by kddekadenz's music mod code and uses mauvebic's bird sounds from 4seasons mod.
Team(so far): Neuromancer, PilzAdam, Jordach, RealBadAngel, mauvebic
Immersive Sounds Mod .36 Full version with music.
Neuromancer's SuperFastLoad (works for Servers too):
Super Fast Load Immersive Sounds Mod
Jp's UltraFastLoad (50% faster than Super Fast load! By far the fastest )
Ultra Fast Load
10Plus1's Xanadu Server Version:
Ultra Fast Load
mauvebic's version of super small fast loading version for servers:
merged all the _frequent groups with their counterparts (should i math.random the volume for same effect?). Added more nature sounds to even out the count between the different groups. Also updated the length values for all the clips to reflect their post-remix length (should fix that weird looping thing). minimalness : 1.32mb, 380 lines
no music, underwater (scuba), and the bats woke my neighbours so thats gone too, the rest was remixed (stereo to mono, trim, pitch adjustments, etc.) changed the cricket noise and added loons for daytime. All in all, it weights in at 1.1mb.
RealBadAngel's technic version. (with music made by Skaven/Future Crew): (Different style of music gives it a totally different feel)
/svol 1 (sets volume of ambient sounds to their defaults. Use a number of 0 to 1) .5 = 50% decrease from default value
/mvol 1 (sets volume of music to their defaults. Use a number of 0 to 3.3) 3.3 = 330% increase over default value
You will need to wait for the sound/song to stop playing to hear the difference in the next sound/song. If you force a change in sound by moving elsewhere you will hear difference immediately. See ambience configuration below for more fine grained control of volume and frequency of sounds.

Just post a message with the top of your init.lua as follows, and everyone can just copy paste this onto theirs. Please pay careful attention to the version number at the top as the parameters will change over time.
