Ambient sounds don’t start until you’re in the game - Changed in recent update

The game takes awhile to load and those sounds are exciting because you hear the water and are hoping it’s going to change. If the water sound never leaves then you know your base has been raided on your starting over again on the shore! :slight_smile:

So I think it was an unintended feature and I will miss it as it added some suspense when logging in.
