Radio chatter and random trade values

Postby Curithwin » Sun Mar 05, 2017 1:45 pm

hi Colin, Love what you have done with the game. Enjoying the 7.1, but somethings I have thought may be missing. One is space chatter and station chatter, I like to listen to NASA chatter and turn the sound down on it so it is only for background. https://archive.org/details/NasaAudioHi ... lights.mp3

The station chatter could be a little like X2 and X3, talking about random things "Spoo is on a deal" etc. This leads into the next idea random fluctuation on trade items. This could be calculated once a game day, or even week and only for systems that are in 2000 light years. They could be "ITEM CRASH", price increase 101 to 110%, price decrease 90 to 99%, "High Demand". To save on CPU usage you could put it to work out categories of items, Industrial, Agricultural, luxury, etc.

Also are you putting in law enforcement at all?

There's going to be NPC communications added in an update soon which will add some text chatter. Not so sure about sfx, but it might be interesting to have something when you're very close.

A more dynamic market is also on the short list for an update in the near future.

Law enforcement will be added once the faction system is in place (again soon!).

Lots of exciting stuff lined up in the next couple of months, basically :)
