Minor tweaks to improve play maybe

Post by BlackWolf » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:35 pm

Things I notice in game.
1. GNN changes up songs in iTunes Oolite playlists. (Interesting when you have 6 news reports and the song changes up every time you go to the next report. lol).

2. Bioomarkets GNN when exiting takes you to F5 screen. (I feel it should take you back to the F4 screen from which you started. Just a thought…)

3. Shield Capacitors recharging sound volume set to high. (Drowns out pretty much everything else going on noise wise and drags on the entire time till fully charged. My god it really kills the mood, please someone tell me how to lower it or cut that sound off.)

Mute is possible in line 56 in oolite.oxp.CommonSenseOTB.ShieldEqualizer+Capacitors.oxz/Scripts/shieldequalizercapacitors.js:

Code: Select all

this.togglesoundfx1 = "ON";// default "ON", change to "OFF" to turn off soundfx1(energy transfer sounds)(1,2)
For volume manipulation insert new lines between 86 and 87:

Code: Select all

var v = 0.2; // 20% volume
this.mySound1.volume = v;
this.mySound2.volume = v;
this.mySound3.volume = v;
this.mySound4.volume = v;
this.mySound5.volume = v;

I'll look at it. Maybe I could simply offer to go to the next report, if it doesn't use a callback.

Yep that it does. GNN, Snoopers and BlOomberg Markets, I have and enjoy all of them in game. I have an ozx the relies on GNN that has different art I do believe I have to have both snoopers and GNN installed for it to work. Part of why I have all 3.

Another thing that has caught my attention is the Stations shaped like a pyramid when docking using the ILS, brings you in sideways. Not a hazard in the smaller ships but a bit of a pain with the larger cause you have to fight it coming in trying to keep your ship straight. Of course shutting it off after getting clearance works, just thought I'd point it out in case it's an easy fix, and if it's not, no big deal. ;)
