Ambient Sounds Mod for Minecraft 1.11.2/1.10.2

44356

Ambient Sounds is an absolutely spectacular mod that makes the world of Minecraft seem much more lively and immersive. Exploring the game world of Minecraft is a delightful activity because the game is filled to the brim with many great sights to see but, as amazing as the game world is, it feels a tad bit dull and stale at times, and this can take away from the experience a bit. The Ambient Sounds mod makes it so that the world of Minecraft always seems alive at all times and this makes exploration a much more exciting and engaging activity.

The Ambient Sounds mod basically implements a whole bunch of minor sound effects into the game that keep playing in the background. The best part about this mod is the fact that it’s very in-depth and it adds a variety of different sound effects for each individual biome. For example, when exploring grassy biomes, you’ll hear the sounds of crickets, birds and various other creatures that one would generally encounter in a forest. However, when exploring a snowy biome, you’ll probably hear the sounds of the wind roaring and the snow falling. All these sound effects make the game world seem seems like it is alive and this enhances the Minecraft experience to a whole new level.

It’s important to keep in mind that the Ambient Sounds mod came out fairly recently and while it supports a pretty significant amount of biomes, it doesn’t support all of them. It’s also worth remembering that the mod is compatible with biome related mods like Biomes O’ Plenty but, as mentioned earlier, not all the biomes will be supported. For biomes that aren’t supported, the mod only implements wind sound effects and even these fit in nicely in the environment. Overall, Ambient Sounds is a very creatively designed mod that makes the Minecraft experience much livelier.

  1. Install instructions look copy and pasted…. WHAT????? No way! Anyways, there *is* no JAR file with the link provided – it is a ZIP file with 15+ nested folders and dozens of files. Please provide actual, thought-out installation instructions. Thanks!

      • I Googled around and got it to work. As you said, it will work by putting the zip file in the mods directory. Thank you for updating the instructions. This mod sounds fantastic! It really adds a whole new dimension to exploring your Minecraft world. I really love the jungle biome sounds. Well done!

  2. I still don’t get it, it doesn’t work! How do you get the sounds! I put it into the mods folder and it doesn’t work.

  3. I’ve only got one recommendation- allow users to disable some sounds or at the very least let us adjust the volume of some sounds. There is one sound in particular that drives me insane and is halting my use of the mod, sadly.

  4. Whoever came up with this mod, you are my new best friend. I have always felt that ambient sound effects were necessary for Minecraft. It makes it feel a lot more peaceful 🙂

  5. Do not use with Biomes o’ Plenty; the mod destroyed my world, placing random blocks and lava everywhere. Pretty sure the two mods are not compatible, just a heads up.

  6. HEADS UP: If you use this mod, I highly recommend reducing the volume of daytime Plains/Savanna by -12 to -15 dB and nighttime by a slightly lesser amount. The chirping is ridiculously loud even though the rest of the biome sounds are actually quite good. I especially like jungle, extreme hills and mesas.

    One major problem is that the music can get interrupted if you switch zones, and the sounds have terrible, if any loop points at all.
