Mandatory properties

type

Type: string
Specification of the type of the prototype. Must be "ambient-sound".

name

Type: string
Unique textual identification of the prototype.

sound

Type: Sound
The sound file and volume.

track_type

Type: string
This lets the game know in what instances the audio file is played.

The following types are recognized:

  • "early-game"
  • "main-track"
  • "interlude"
  • "late-game"
  • "menu-track"

"menu-track" is only played in the main menu. "early-game", "late-game" and "main-track" are all considered main tracks and played interleaved (alternating) with "interlude" tracks. "early-game" and "late-game" have no special effects compared to "main-track" meaning that are functionally the same.

Optional properties

weight

Type: double
Default: 1

 {
   type = "ambient-sound",

   }
 },
