By popular request, this week we have added microphones, speakers, and new logic links... this means PA systems, megaphones, and radios!
The new microphone block picks up the voice of any nearby player who is currently talking with the new voice chat feature. A speaker audio effect is also applied.
There is also a new "audio" logic link that can connect microphones, speakers, antennas, and microprocessors. This allows you to connect microphones and speakers together, and also any intermediate logic along the way such as switching or radio transmission.
Radio signals still have limited range, and signal quality degrades over distance, so expect crackles and low quality audio as you test the range of your radio system!
Radio antennas have also been reworked: (any existing antennas are unchanged so your vehicles won't break) when placing a new antenna, the antenna now switches between transmit and receive mode and an antenna has only one channel. This way, it is much easier to build radio systems and you can easily control when an antenna is transmitting or not, which players have been requested many times.
We hope you enjoy communicating with your friends in multiplayer with the new radio systems and mega-phone systems!
Much love <3
