When I first read this I agreed with the OP. Then I read Ken's response and had doubts. So I double checked during tonight's rounds and indeed it's The Silent Spring of WGT on the new desktop version. Maybe on mobile?
Sliders for music, sound effects and commentary. The sound effects do not have ambient sounds, birds, planes, bells, wind, horns etc. It does seem strangely quiet. I hope nature (and horns, planes) return.
Having fun, hitting ;em straight in the silence.
