No need to edit files in this case. Download LIBRARY v1.7.1 as it allows configuration options for The Background Set including the ones you mentioned. Library also allows for configuration options for many other OXZ's so it is handy to have around.

As for the future editing of .plist's and such avoid using Notepad as it will add extra spaces and stuff that will cause problems with the file. An easy alternative is NOTEPAD++ which will get the job done without too steep of learning curve on how to use it. The learning curve on how to properly edit scripts is whole other matter.

Yep. What Nite Owl said. You can configure BGS in the game. Just go to the interface screen (F4) and select 'Config for AddOns'. Select 'Config BGS'. The settings you are looking for are under 'Show flags'. Set 'Chatter' to 0. When done, leave the configuration screens and save the game (F2), otherwise changes are only temporary.

Thank you for the responses. I installed Library from the OXP list in game but Config BGS does not show up in the menu.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the BGS and Library, restarted Oolite, even restarted my computer...all the usual dart throwing I do when confronted with user hostile computers.All to no avail.
Any other things that I may be missing?

The latest version of Library (v1.7.1) is NOT available from the in game OXZ Manager. Follow the link to Library's Wiki page in my previous post. The download link is towards the bottom of the page.

The latest version of BGS (v2.5) may not yet be available from the in game OXZ manager either. Go back a few posts from your original question to see the conversation as to why. You can get the latest version of BGS at its Wiki page until it is definitively updated in the in game OXZ Manager.

Thank you all for walking an old dog through a new trick.

A quick trick hack would be to hide the relevant audio files:

a. if you are working with the .oxp format, then
open the .oxp folder,
go to the Sounds subfolder and
move all the bgs-chatter* files to a new temp folder.

b. if you are working with the .oxz format, then
open the .oxz file with a package manager (e.g. 7-zip), then
go to the Sounds subfolder and
move all the bgs-chatter* files to a new temp folder within the .oxz

EDIT: I just saw that I was answering to the previous and there was a "next" page answering that! (double facepalm)

Thanks for that advice as well.
If I keep this up I may even learn to write my on OXP.

[EliteWiki] BGS 2.5.1 is online and in the manager as well.

Changes:
- Added scriptInfo key bgs_chatExpand for secondary stations to flag that this station allows chatter.
- Added user configurable option ChatExpand to enable chatter for secondary stations (default:false). Ignored if Chatter option is disabled.

@Sundiver: Yes, Thargonish. UNIR SHA! (see rot13)

Recently updated to 2.5.1. Everything has changed now. I like the new hyper jump and docking effects.
But is it possible to keep old backgrounds somehow? Is there a configuration option for that or some other way?

Thanks!
