More Radio Chatter
« on: August 03, 2020, 03:45:38 AM »

Radio chatter is one of the signs that a planet has a market/colony. It could be used to further indicate when you are in or near an inhabited system. Specifically:
- Chatter when you are near an inhabited system in hyperspace
- Low-key chatter throughout an inhabited system

I think it could work well as an audio-cue for close-by fleets. Different tones/types of chatter could be used to indicate their disposition, ie attacking/neutral/fleeing, whether they're running dark, transponder off etc. Alternatively or in addition, different factions could have their own chatter-type to further characterise them.
