Vehicle recording at 29 Palms with the USMC
Big update inbound, and many thanks to the OFP: DR sound team for taking the time to write these behind the scenes expose’s!
Naturally vehicles take a big part in OFP : DR so it was important to us to make them sound as true to life as we could. Where better to start than to go to the USMC and borrow some tanks then?
Several phone calls to the USMC Public Affairs Office later and we had a visit out to 29 Palms Range. Sadly we didn’t get to go on this trip and instead hired the very capable On Your Mark Music Productions field recording crew. Who were strangely more than a little keen to spend a week in the desert surrounded by some of the best military hardware available.
I hope that you enjoy the sounds of vehicles in OFP: DR, we spent a lot of time tracking down these sounds and recreating them in game. It was very important to us to get a an authentic sound to our vehicles that few games truly capture. The M1A1 Abrams used by the USMC has a unique sound due to its propulsion system.
Finally we have to give a much deserved thanks to these people, because without On Your Mark Music and the USMC we would have struggled to get anywhere near the same quality of vehicle audio for OFP: DR

3rd Community Screenshot Released
Another community exclusive screenshot for you all, following on nicely from the one posted on the 22nd. This screeny shows off the radial command system and some of the nice depth of field visual effects the game will have.
Later on this week I’ll also be making another behind the scenes update from our sound team and their vehicle recording session with the USMC at 29 Palms in California.
29 Palms is the home to the world’s largest Marine Corps Base. It is the premier training facility in the world for Marine operations and draws military personnel from all over the world for Combined Arms Exercises.
29 Palms is the premier live-fire base in the Marine Corps. Each year roughly one-third of the Fleet Marine Force and Marine Reserve units — some 50,000 Marines in all — participate in the base’s training exercise program. These training exercises involve every weapons system in the Marine Corps’ arsenal, from small arms to attack aircraft. They are absolutely essential to maintaining high levels of readiness of the U.S. Marine Corps to fight and defend U.S. National interests.
