Hello, I would like to make a request for the following sound options to be added:
Disable hangar background ambience
Disable sound while program is in background
To explain my view, I like watching twitch and youtube videos while waiting in queue, which can be at times 5-10 mins. However, the background noise of the hangar greatly interferes with this (and is generally very annoying and mind numbing when you have to listen to it for so long).
In most other games the sound automatically disables when the game is in the background, letting you simply tab out to temporarily mute it. However, the sound in this game is always on, and thus you're always subject to the constant drone of the hangar, even when tabbed out.
Additionally, the only way to mute this noise is to mute the "effects volume" in the sound options which mutes ALL effects, such as guns and missiles in-game. As I prefer to have these sounds on while I am in-game, the only way for me to effectively enjoy my time in queue is to manually mute the game sound in the hangar, and then manually unmute it every time I get into a game.
This is very tedious and annoying, and could be easily remedied by implementing one or both of the above options. Both are common options available in other games, and I would like to request them to be added here. It would improve my enjoyment of the game greatly.
