In-game, the zebra make horse whinnies. In real life, they sound very different!
HERE'S WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=zebra+sounds+youtube&docid=608014202159577619&mid=A9760F04053E3BE7B724A9760F04053E3BE7B724&view=detail&FORM=VIRE
its a small thing, but the zebras sound like horses and thats just not sitting right with me, if you were to youtube how they sound. youll see my point
haha yes you are 100% correct. However for the sake of adding in sounds that people could recognize, we decided the 'real' zebra would potentially be a bit confusing to the players. (it was confusing to me when researching what they actually sound like and putting together the sound set). We collectively decided to just go with a horse set. Thanks for the feedback.
You are completely correct. We took the 'creative' decision to make them sound a little closer to how people may expect them to sound for several reasons. Availability of high quality zebra recordings was a big factor in this, so we didn't have much to work with. Also when we played 'real' zebra sounds to a lot of people they thought it was dogs yelping and all sorts of other things, which was quite confusing. However i'll keep it on our list of future improvements and see if we can get the zebra closer to reality. Until then - I'm gonna claim these are 'space zebra' so they sound... different? ;-)thanks for the feedback.
It would bring more athmosphere to the desert regions if the zebras also sound like zebras.
They sound like horses, which is not the natural sound of zebras.
I would be happy if this can be adjusted accordingly.
How zebras really sound can be heard in numerous animal documentaries.

Not creative, just lazy. Fix it. A quick trip to a decent zoo and a Parabolic Dish Directional Microphone and you have your own high quality sound.
