[0.24] Chatterer v.0.5.9.4

Recommended Posts

Chatterer is under new management and has a new thread!

Athlonic, who has been keeping this mod alive for the past year, is now officially in charge and has started a new thread HERE.

Big thanks to Athlonic and all the other contributors and users who've helped make Chatterer great!

Add some SSTV, beeps, and nonsensical radio chatter between your crewed command pods and Mission Control

Totally useless, TOTALLY FUN

mp3
)

After watching the Antares launch today, I feel chatterer needs to spam "nominal" duing the launch phase.

This has become a regular feature on all my vessels, the little bursts of Kerblish make the experience that bit more fun :)

Great work!

They way they talk reminds me of some species in the game Spore.

Excellent mod I have to say.

Love it.

...But I wish that a) It would not stop working when multiple vessels with it equipped are docked, and B) I wish it would stop working if there are no kerbals currently on board.

I love the new radio model, but I wasn't too fond of the way the texture causes it to stick out from the rest of the ship. I modified the texture for it so that it fits in better. I don't know the policy on modding mods so I'll just leave this picture here.

In the original thread Baalzebob gave permission for free use of the model and I like this alt texture. Share a link to the new files will ya?

Neither a or b should be happening. I will look into it.

It's been a long time since any update. I've been waiting for the new database to be implemented which I've been led to believe will allow users to easily add their own sound files for Chatterer to play. When this makes it into KSP I will have an update with another set of chatter and beeps and instructions on how to add your own clips.

Yes, just copy the code from the part's .cfg and paste into each capsule's .cfg file.

The code you need to add to the capsule is:

MODULE

{

name = rbr_chatterer

}

That's exactly what I do. All my manned pods have the chatterer module added to their part.cfg.

Does it support RemoteTech with adding a delay between message and response according to the distance between the control and ship. Or only send messages from/to the ship without any answer when the ship has no contact. (And a “nominal†message every few messages is a must :P )

I think all it does is add ''nonsensical chatter'' i.e. play noise every now and then. Personally I love it :D Don't think it goes as deep as RemoteTech though.

Hey, Iannic, would you mind if I added that module to capsules for the ''pack''? That would ensure anyone would get Chatterer automatically ;)

I love this plugin. It just adds a certain element. Makes the game feel more lively.

I'm adding Chatterer to every ship too :) It adds a lot to game's atmosphere. Kerbals floating in the great void on the outskirts of the Kerbol system seem less lonely when there is a burst of gibberish every now and then.

Oh no I didn't want that this replaces RemoteTech. But maybe there is a way for this plugin to communicate with RemoteTech (if it is also installed) and ask for time delay value.

xZise. I don't believe you correctly understand what this mod is/does.

This mod adds cute voices, (garblespeak) that simulate radio chatter between a spaceship crew and ground control. - it is just cute sounds,it in no way at all effects HOW you control your ship.

If used on an unmanned ship, you hear 'computer chirps' that represent a generic computer radio Ping. - it in no way at all effects HOW you control your ship.

you can have this mod, AND remotetech, nothing at all changes. each work as it would be expected to.

What he's asking for is instead of

<chatter>

random delay

<chatter>

He wants

<chatter>

Time delay value from Remote tech as if the reply was coming from Kerbin

<chatter>

Not that I'm saying it's needed, just point out all he's asking for is the delay to be more realistic.

oh, so you think that he belevies the Beep, or chatter, is in some way linked to a given command ?

it isn't.

it is on a user set timer - Eg. every 30 sec you hear a beep. giving the ship commands in no way 'causes' a beep. delayed or not.

or to word it another way:

1. you hear a beep every 30 seconds.

2. you hear a beep every 30 seconds. (but what you have no way to know is that the beep you hear was delayed 2 seconds due to radio delay. but since the previous beep was deleyed by 2 seconds, you still always hear it every 30 secs.)

Ehr no. I completly understand that the chatter you hear is non sense but the messages needs to be transferred with the speed of light. So the answer can only come after the message was transferred to the other point and then the answer was transferred back.

I only said RemoteTech because KSP by default doesn't has any delay and as your commands need to be send through the satellites Chatterer's message should too. Of course only simulated.

what "answer"? see, that is the point I am trying to make. Chatter isn't 'answering'... oh wait.... I see what you are trying to say.

Sometimes, you hear BOTH #groundControll# speak, immedently followed by "the spaceship" speaking....

you are asking for a delay to be put in BETWEEN those two events. a delay = 2x the remotetech radio delay.

I get it now:

player hears Ground control "hcnul rof tnaw uoy od tahw?"

[delay of remotetech x2]

player hears Spaceship "eyr no mah"
