Announcing Thorium Nova - Bridge Simulation Reimagined

Update 41 - 🌲

April 14, 2018

Version 0.2.17

  • Throttled the thrusters messages for better performance.

  • Blocked some subscription updates to decrease the load on Core

  • Made it possible to rename software panels

  • Completed the sound engine, making it possible to play sound effects on any computer

  • Added a special "Sound" client, which acts as a simulator-wide sound player

  • Added a keyboard macro manager, which allows the flight director to perform macro actions with the press of a keyboard button. The intention for this feature is to operate like a sound keyboard, but it can also be used for effects. One example is playing a 'EMP' sound on all of the crew computers and simultaneously having their computers spark when the sound is played.

  • Added the following macros:

    • Auto-advance - advance the timeline when this macro is run (must be used with delay to be effective)
    • Video-advance - advance the timeline when a video is done playing on the viewscreen
    • Play sound
    • Cancel all sounds
    • Set a timer on core (must have sync timer active)
  • Add video previews to the mission script printing screen

  • Sort printed timeline items by delay

  • Add ship status viewscreen
