Communications Pack A

From Elite Wiki

Communications Pack A adds a range of communications messages to the NPCs using the new communications routines. 19 different NPC personalities are included so far, each with a range of messages for different situations. Don't forget to set your ship and commander name while docked at a station, so that they can talk to you using them - Random Ship Names is recommended to add NPC names.

Not to be confused with Death Comms


Download via the Addons manager or directly at Comms Pack A 0.5. It requires Oolite 1.79 or later.

For OXP developers

Communications Pack A is licensed very freely, and extensively commented inside. It is intended for adaptation and copying of the framework for other authors to make Communications Packs B, C, D, etc. with different personalities and speech patterns. Please ask if you have any questions about how to do this.

Q: Looking back at Communications Pack A - is there anything you might have expected to be included in a Pack B (perhaps Phkb's Death Comms)? (Question to Cim)

A: Anything, really. The point was that if anyone came up with their own personalities for any of the roles, they could make a similar comms pack for those. If I'd had anything specific in mind myself it would have been another personality in Comms Pack A, though. Cim, Wed Dec 07, 2022
