Docking, never miss a flight again!
Docking's a tiny, no-config-required-it-just-works mod that does two things:
- It plays the boat bell sound when a taxi flight ends.
- It plays the boat bell sound when a zeppelin arrives.
This mod is for those who tend to switch away when they're on a flying taxi, or a zeppelin. Now, you know exactly when the flight ends, so your character isn't just sitting around somewhere wasting valuable rested experience. And you'll know exactly when a zeppelin flight comes in, so you won't be sat forever at the tower waiting for a zeppelin ever again, or you won't ever find yourself going in loops on the zeppelin because you switched away and got caught up in something else.
Yes, this happens to me quite often. That's why I created this mod. And I thought that since I'm probably not the only person this happens to, well... others might like it too!
What if I want to change the sound?
The sound is defined in the code:
self.sound = "Sound\\Doodad\\BoatDockedWarning.wav"
Just change it to the path and file of your choice. If there's enough demand though, I'll include an option in a later version to be able to change the sound via an options screen. But I didn't see anything wrong with the bell sound, and I can't imagine why most would want to change it, so I didn't put in the configuration for something so superfluous.
What's up with that name?
I felt it was apt.
Plus, I wanted to see if I could match up to the Tekkub school of mod naming: Pick a name which is obviously lewd, yet has plausible deniability.
I... don't get it.
If you don't get the purpose of this mod, please just ignore it and be on your way. I'm kind of tired of getting low votes on things just because the functionality goes over someone's head. The mod performs the described function, it does so perfectly, and it's well written. If you don't get it or don't need it, then move along.
This mod really is only for the people who get the problem that would cause me to create a mod like this. Not everyone will get it.
