I'm sorry for not responding earlier!

I will take a look at the audacity sources of other sounds (many thanks for pointing them out to me) and will provide a source file to match the existing ones. I might have to re-model the sounds first though.

Hi Iwan,
Do you have the Audacity project files from your sounds?
I see that that is the kind of "source" files that were submitted for some older sounds.
If you check out this with subversion, you will see the files:
svn co svn:// materials.bos

I listened at the files, and prepared for committing them. They are good, and a welcome addition.
But I would like to fulfill feb's request for the source files...

I noticed that my submitted files were stereo, while bos wars seems to prefer mono files to save space. I attached a version with one channel (if the upload works this time).

I found instructions for in the documentation (doc/media.html) that 22050 Hz should be used. Is this still up to date?

I made a tar.gz with 22050 Hz versions of these files. Perhaps it will be possible to attach it. If not:

Part-related: I am now not sure what "source" means to you in the case of art (you have a list of source-less art "As a special exception the sources are not required for the following files:" which is a confusing phrase too. Is it explained anywhere why such an exception for these files exists?)

I seem to be unable to attach files. I do not get an error message. I uploaded it somewhere else instead:

I created some sounds using my own voice and public domain (cc0) sounds from

I made sounds for Aircraft factory, Artil, Destroyer and Shipyard.

I'm attaching .

I license the included .wav files under GPLv2 or later but they are also available under CC-BY-SA v3 or later (dual licensing).

The changes to the .lua files are too minor to be protect-able by copyright. If you disagree, then I release them to cc0/public domain them or if you don't want to accept that then you can use them under GPL v2 or later.

As for the sources: is a mix of and
hydraulic sounds are the best!

artil.*.wav are mixes of and
I imagined a sociopath driver/gunman, who is grumpy, because he has to sit in this very isolated, plated vehicle all day, which is why he prefers not to talk.

artil.die.wav is a mix of and

destroyer.*.wav are mixes of and
I was thinking about the voice of StarCraft's Battle Cruiser captains but mine turned out very different. :)

destroyer.die.wav is a mix of and

shipyardselect is an edit of

Destroyer and Heli "background sfx templates" for the voice lines are included in

I used Audacity.

To make my voices sound spoken-through-a-radio-like I followed the instructions seen in (video and text in description)

I called for women to voice act for Bos Wars on two forums:
