A plugin for Kerbal Space Program which adds some SSTV, beeps, and nonsensical radio chatter between your crewed command pods and Mission Control.

There is also some environmental sounds as : wind in atmosphere, breathing on EVA and background noises inside spacecrafts.

  • if you have Blizzy78's Toolbar Mod installed, you can also find a Chatterer Icon available (must be enabled on first load),
  • you can also choose to use Blizzy78's Toolbar only and hide KSP stock applauncher button (check Chatterer settings).

Not yet, but it is the N°1 issue on my list ;)

No lie, from the .cs file :

/* DO ME

*

* FIX EVA detection (avoid switching vessel to trigger Airlock sound)

* FIX the mute all function

*

* ADD Applauncher/BlizzyTB button behaviour/animations (Idle, disabled, muted, onChat, ...)

* ADD plugin version checker

*

* Separate the code in different .cs files accordingly to their function

*

* //

*

* ADD some fillable Preset slots to store configured chatter/beeps/filters for later use (single beep, all beeps, or all audio)

* save all clipboard nodes to disk when any are filled/changed

* load them at start and vessel switch

*

*

* //ADD a settings 'clipboard' to copy/paste current single beepsource settings to another beepsource

* //ADD EVA-capsule chatter (if nearby crew > 0) and capsule-capsule chatter (if vessel crew > 1)

*

*/

:D

Sweet. Stock toolbar integration. Although yours was the most agreeable button to move. I still can't find out how to move the Enhanced Navball button ( I'll ask there if it ever becomes a problem ).

Love this Mod.

Any chance for more sound clips? I can lip sink all radio traffic now and almost everything they say I have a made up translation for in my head. Lach klalbla man, LACH KLALBLA!

Hrm.... I'm missing things. Deleted original folder, installed and this is all I have:

UFISaLW.jpgX7hamVJ.jpg8EDp8ff.jpg

Obviously the Chatter isn't there because this is just a probe, but I can't add additional beeps. However when I loaded up a kerbed flight, the skin had changed (even though I didn't change it) and now the options panel had the ability to enable advanced options (add beeps/chatter sets/etc)

XHsDgy7.jpg

However when I switched back to a probe craft the advanced settings option was gone again.

Also now that RT2 development is active again I have to ask about RT2 integration for chatter :)

  • First issue was a quick fixed one.
  • Second a bit longer but I got it fixed as well, KSPAlternateResourcePanel_2.5.1.0 adds some skins in the database and this changed the skin index (on the second flight start).

Thanks for your report ;)

RT2 integration is planned as well, the code is still in, I just have to sort out the different state flags.

Strange, Cendartalk set should definitely work, re-check your install paths

the toolbar button (from stock toolbar) wont go away when checking (useBlizzy78Toolbar in chatterer options) it just keeps comming back

using latest version ksp 0.24.2 x32

Thanks for your issue report, this setting was saved but wasn't loaded at all, fixed.

Also,

v0.6.2: [01 Sep 2014]

Make sure that the chatter clips are all in the right folders. Capsule chatter has to actually be in a Chatterer\Sounds\chatter\<directoryname>\capsule folder or it won't load. Hope you like the svskerblish, although an updated version is on its way, with Athlonic's permission of course; the aim of which is to integrate more seamlessly with the originals.

Nice !

You are all welcome if you want to do chatter sets by the way.

I will link the 2 already known to the OP soon.

Also, Stephanie, if your set sound more "clean" I think I could make use of it as I plan to implement capsule_to_capsule chatter ;)

So cleaner voices should fit quite nicely here.

An EVA chatter set would be nice as well, with some "talking in an helmet" effect.

I'll see if I can make loading sets a bit more handy.

Also, I just had fun with the new KSP applicationlauncher button textures, v0.6.3 is just a fix away from release... ;)

When you say 'clean' what do you mean exactly? I'd like to make something from my set that you can incorporate permanently if you let me know what you need me to do. If you mean that you want them to be less like old radio and more crisp then that can be arranged

Yep yep ! This is exactly what I meant ;)

Also some "panic mode" capsule and EVA set would be useful for a future planned feature, as well.

But hey, there is no rush nor obligation ;)

Oh nice, performance updates are always welcome :)

I have to say that Chatterer adds a LOT to the ambiance of the game, a lot more than I ever thought it would. I won't play without it now.

Thanks, Athlonic!
