Volume does not change when you zoom out from active craft anymore
This has been a feature in KSP long enough that I don't even remember why it was introduced. Though now it appears that when you zoom out from a craft the volume(e.g. engine volume) will no longer decrease like it did in previous versions. If this is a bug, please fix it. If it was removed in ksp 1.7.x, I cannot even fathom a good reason you guys could have for removing this feature but please add it back.

I can confirm this, and it's not just when you zoom out, the volume of sounds does not decrease with distance to other vessels either. This is especially prominent/annoying if you like to set up dogfights with BDArmory, because you will hear all the engines of every plane all the time with full volume.

This bug isnt as simple as it seems.
Some engines in 1.7.3 do fade out depending on distance and some dont.
The whiplash doesnt change volume and stays at 100% no matter what in 1.7.3 (not good)
The aerospike does change volume and varies according to distance in 1.7.3 (normal)
From what I have seen of 1.9.0 so far I havent had any problems other than the ambient sounds for entry effects and high air speed don't seem to change.
Do all of the parts that create sound need to be tested?

- Status changed from Ready to Test to Resolved
- % Done changed from 80 to 100
OK I tested a LOT of parts to do this bug report justice after figuring out that 1.7.3 had the problem with some engines and not others.
I will say this is resolved even though I know that ambient sounds arent because this was more about engines/parts. if anyone picks up the ambient sounds good luck.
All parts tested correctly in regards to fading in and out according to distance to the part.
