    Has anyone else noticed this? When you drive by close walls, your engine sound reflects off of them and you can hear it. This is a very cool effect!

    It might be most noticeable with headphones.

    Yes, it's the reverb echo effect

    There is a setting for it in the config file , mine is all set wrong, I use 5.1 surround and everything sounds out

    Hope a future build sorts surround sound

    You can go into your player file and change it, default is something like 15 meters to reflection, mines set to 2 and now sounds pretty realistic.

    yep, noticed, months ago, even before beta release ;)
    But I wouldn't count on that effect in form it exists right now. As stated in various posts it sounds like some kind of placeholder/prototype of what we should hear. So probably it will be changed in future (I hope). I think we have a lot of chance for improvements, since implementing effects like sound reflections is easier than for example working with light reflection.
