Idea: Cut Music Upon Death

I'm not sure how feasible something like this would be, but I think it would be a great atmosphere enhancer if someone made a mutator (or whatever this would be called) that cut the music immediately upon your death, and varied its volume according to the following:

After you spawn back in, it will slowly fade back to full volume.
If you enter slow death mode, the music slowly fades away until you die.
If you are under heavy suppression, the music fades to 25% volume.*
If you are seriously injured and bleeding, the music fades as you bleed out.*
If you patch up and survive, it slowly fades back to full volume.*

*Not sure if these would be cool or just weird.

It seems TWI has made whitelisting these things not an easy task for some reason, but if a coder/sound modder wants to have a go at something, maybe he could consider something like this. Thanks for reading.

This is already implemented in my Sound Mutator, actually.

Currently music doesn't fade as much as everything else however, but this was by design.

Headshots mute everything, on the other hand.

Try it out and let me know if you'd like something like that changed or made an option and I'll look into it.

Oh crap, didn't notice you posted here in this thread until just now.

I'll have to get around to trying your mod sometime. I can't find any servers running it right now, but I'll open it up sometime offline and see how it feels. Thanks for incorporating this into your mod! :)
