Hey all! Here is a first draft of a "Drift Insertion" sound for Syrinscape's Starfinder SoundSets. Please COMMENT with your suggestions and corrections. We promise to incorporate ALL ideas... especially contradictory ones!
And an update here
DRAFT II sounds pretty epic. Almost sounds like there's thunder in there, but maybe I've been playing too much Curse of Strahd lately and have thunder on my mind.
I'm not familiar with the mechanics of Starfinder or how Drifting works, is it just like a jump where it takes a minute and you are at your destination and in a stopped state or something or is it like light speed where you start up and continue for a while?
Yes. Basically getting to drift, you have to stop, wind up the drive for 1 minute and you shift planes. You arrive stationary. And then can fly around in there... it's useful to be in drift because distances are all messed up, so you can get places more quickly.
Also, each time you make the jump, you possibly damage the drift, hence the reverberating thunder/discharge of energy after the jump.
Someone (on another thread) suggested a hold-your-breath gap just between the charge up and the jump... I'm going to try that tomorrow. That might sound epic!
Can the jump or manoeuvre fail? Once the thunder starts then emergency sirens wail or something signalling bad stuff happening like the engine/reactor core melting down or something? Maybe I've watched too much Star Trek.
