[1.0.4] ShipEffects Sound Mod: Dynamic Sound Effects (Maintenance) - v1.0.3 [10/12/2015]

Recommended Posts

 

 

After finding this plugin and realizing that the original plugin has had it's development haulted as of 07/27/15, and despite my non-existant experience with modding KSP (Though I do have some C# knowledge), I have decided to go ahead and run a maintenance thread for

ShipEffects Sound Mod: Dynamic Sound Effects (Original Thread). I would like to thank the original mod author ensouensou for creating this awesome plugin and credit him for the creation of the original mod.

I currently do not plan to add features to this plugin as I feel it is feature complete enough for the moment and am creating this as a maintenance thread to keep it updated with new versions of KSP, however I may reconsider adding new features if convinced that it could be made better. If the original author returns I will close this thread and pass along any changes I have made to him so that he may continue developing the plugin.

 

 


We all wished we could hear our spaceship cry while entering Eve, or accelerating with a bunch of Mainsails. This mod fills in the remaining gap in the sound effects part. This adds rattles, vibrations, and stress sounds to your ship depending on how much thrust, gravitational and atmospheric forces your ship is enduring.

Hey it should be fixed now, I didn't realize that I could only use .zip, originally I tried to upload a .rar and apparently it didn't notify me that it was invalid.

Thanks for taking up support of the mod. THe only thing I would love to see added to the mod is RealFuels compatibility. Ensouensou had been trying to get that working, but never was successful. Some details about it here. Maybe try contacting nathanKell the author of RealFuels.

Hey @Svm420 I looked into it and I believe that I have managed to fix the compatibility issues between this mod and Real Fuels, let me know if you have any other problems with compatibility.

Are the sound effects IVA only, or can you hear then outside as well?
is it possible to make the sounds happen without being IVA?

Currently you can only experience the sound effects while in IVA mode, however I will look into the possibility of non-IVA sound effects.

EDIT: Nevermind that last statement, looking again it appears the original dev added an option that I had overlooked -- In the "ShipEffects.cfg" file within the "ShipEffects" folder inside your GameData folder, simply change "OnlyInIVA = true" to "OnlyInIVA = false"

I have a question, does this mod work with AtmosphericSoundEnhancement ?

I'm not sure, the only way to know would be to test it... I can probably test it at some point -- If you do end up trying them together let me know if you experience any issues.

Thanks for the quick response. Is there a way to make the current sound effects work outside the ship in the meantime?

Hey I went to look into adding the option just now, and realized the original dev did already implement an option that I had overlooked -- There is an option in the "ShipEffects.cfg" file within the "ShipEffects" folder inside your GameData folder. Simply change "OnlyInIVA = true" to "OnlyInIVA = false"

Awesome! I'm so happy this made a return, it really provided an incentive to use IVA's. Thanks for taking up the project:D

Hey just wanted to check that the mod is working alright for everybody? I can't help but notice that version 1.0.1 is getting a lot more downloads than the most recent version 1.0.2, and wanted to make sure it's not a problem with version 1.0.2 that's keeping people from downloading it?

All this update does is update the source code included in the download as I apparently forgot to make the new source code available in version 1.0.2. :blush:

Awesome! Are you excited or discouraged by the U5 update? I've heard many claims that it has great options for sound engineering, but I'm not sure how much work it would require to update ShipSounds.

Honestly while Unity 5 is going to be a great thing, I only intend to keep this mod compatible with KSP. If there is an improvement in sound quality or function as a result that's awesome, but otherwise it will likely still be the same as it's always been.

Great to hear! I hope it's not too hard. :)
