Having just installed yet another nightly build, I again wonder why the default volume in vanilla Oolite (Windows versions, anyway) is set to max?
Something like 50% would be preferable. It's a very minor thing, but...

I think I did set the volume once in Oolite 1.58 and is probably the same for me since. :lol:

Preferences should be stored in the user area and survive version updates. But, that is probably a whole other issue.

EDIT:
Going through the resources, I think it is not at 100% but at 75% if no preferences existed.
Code:
		if ([prefs objectForKey:KEY_VOLUME_CONTROL])  sNominalVolume = [prefs floatForKey:KEY_VOLUME_CONTROL];
		else  sNominalVolume = 0.75;	// default setting at 75% system volume
OOCASound.m, line 157. But that is in the mac specific part. :wink:

To save resetting a load of stuff, I've taken to porting the GNUstep\Defaults file into new trunk nightly installs. Is there any reason why I shouldn't be doing this?

I can't think of any reason not to do that.

I have to lower the default sound volume because the buying and selling sounds in the commodities market menu is so painfully loud relative everything else.

And if we are at it... Tichys fixed guiclick.ogg should be put in the game as well (see http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13717).

And I'm still wondering why? No sound thingy should be set at max volume by default.
