There is a lot of potential to making Minecraft more immersive by adding relaxing raging river sounds. Currently, the generated rivers look lifeless and are soundless.
Stream versus River sound
The current water flow sound resembles more of a small stream sound rather than a river sound.
You can listen to the difference between the two by looking up:
- Sound of a Raging River 2hrs "Sleep Sounds"
- Small Stream with Gentle Sound of Running Water / Relaxing Water Sound 1 Hour
I think that the type of sound being produced (River vs Stream) by a water body should be decided based on the quantity of water that is flowing.
Immersive Relaxing Sound
Additionally, I believe that the current water flow sound is too short. When played, the looping effect becomes noticeable quickly. I think, the river sound should be relaxing and continuous unlike it is now. I'm not expecting a sound file 2 hours long, instead I'm hoping for it to be longer than couple seconds.
