This expansion pack adds a log of all communications received by the player and displays them in a multi-function display. As comms chatter can happen quickly in a battle situation, it can be easy to miss communications. The Comms Log MFD keeps all communications indefinitely, until either the log hits its maximum size (around 32k), or the user themselves clear the log.
Scrolling the log requires the purchase (for only 1 credit) of the CommsLog Scroller, available in all tech-level stations. Once purchased, the Scroller becomes a piece of primable equipment (the default is to use shift-N to prime a piece of equipment). When primed, use the mode key (default "b") to select a mode. The available modes are (in order):
- Scroll back mode
- Scroll forward mode
- Scroll to previous launch
- Scroll to next launch
- View current
- View oldest
- Clear log mode
After a mode is selected it can be activated (default "n").
If log is scrolled and left for 90 seconds, log will automatically revert to viewing the current message.
To aid in usability, if the "scroll forward" function is selected, and then activated, the next mode will be "scroll back". This allows easier scrolling backwards and forwards. The same thing happens with the scroll to next launch and scroll to previous launch modes.
When "view current" is activated, the mode will be automatically switched to "scroll back". When "view oldest" is activated, the mode will automatically switched to "scroll forward".
This expansion pack relies on having multi-function displays available in your HUD. You must at least be using Oolite version 1.79, and your HUD must have at least 1 MFD defined.
