I'm playing through the game and having a great time, especially since I started using the mod from iModSometimes that reduces the abundance of grunts in the english VO. The biggest issue I've had beyond that has also been audio related - I like the extra flavor that comes from NPC chatter as you walk through an area, but since there doesn't seem to be a trigger that says a main character is speaking, they often talk over conversations you're having with party members as you're moving around. This seems to be exacerbated by the fact that the loudest VO/sound is often closest to the camera and not Cloud himself.


I used a "reduce NPC chatter" mod for the Witcher 3 that was (pun intended) a game changer - I have a feeling that NPC lines would have to be muted entirely (which I think was the W3 mod approach) if there's no flag that says the player characters are speaking. Alternatively, perhaps there's a way to make the audio levels tied to proximity with the character and not the camera?


I wouldn't be opposed to making such a mod myself if it's fairly straightforward to do so, but I wouldn't want to spoil the game for myself so it definitely wouldn't happen for a while (since I'm still pretty early in the game).


Would anyone be able to create such a mod? I'm sure it would get a lot of downloads, as it's quite the prevalent issue!
