One of the things i’ve really enjoyed about this group is the role play, especially when we get the news updates from the front. I was wondering if there was any interest in expanding on that and setting up a feed of short audio comms for people to hear during the week. updates from command, or fashion it as an embedded reporter filing reports from the front?
i have experience setting up and maintaining podcasts, or they could just be audio files linked on comms net posts?
Just something i’ve been mulling over today. thoughts?09/06/2017 at 20:28 #24698
I would be happy to contribute voice acting as Matsiyan or something else. I can record over a headset in Audacity.
I had thought of recording my character logs as voice to be more Trek-like.
Fish’s news broadcasts are awesome. I agree that would be a great weekly extra essentially based on data available to ONI.
Mundy and I have done some voice pieces for a future scenario Kennon Far cooked up, but I think it is an ambitious one-off scenario needing a lot of GM prep. So it could be a while before they are ever used.09/06/2017 at 20:52 #24702
I love it, but it’d require some dedicated people to oversee and maintain it.09/06/2017 at 20:57 #24704
The topic of fleet communications had been brought to the fore in ONI just recently. This is very relevant and well-timed.09/06/2017 at 21:16 #24707
as long as there is space to put it, there doesn’t need to be an actual website to keep up, and it doesn’t take a ton of editing, its pretty easy to maintain something short and sweet. I’m thinking max 5 minutes including intro/outro.
this could be weekly, bi-weekly, or even monthly… a monthly might be an after action report of some sort… again, just spitballing.
To start we would need voice actors, server space for audio files (depending on the quality they would be small, very small, or super small), someone (or someones) to do production – editing, gathering voice clips, basically back end stuff.09/06/2017 at 21:22 #24710
I don’t know enough about editing to be any help on the back end but I’d be interested in helping to write/produce/record09/06/2017 at 21:25 #24712
Oh, what you said before made it seem like there was a constant stream of content.09/06/2017 at 21:37 #24714
i can do editing especially if its short form. I do sound/editing for two shows at my radio station… but i’d need backup as my health can make me unreliable at times. that can also be resolved by making a backlog. this is something that would be good as a test bed. see what we can do with short form simple communications and then see if we want to expand from there (though i’m always one to think five more steps ahead than i should!). we wouldn’t need a ton of sound effects or anything like that. just a straight up reading in character.
I’m seeing that matsiyan, quinn, and mundy might be interested? if anyone else is interested, i bet we can do a couple one offs as an alpha test? see how everyone likes it?09/06/2017 at 21:50 #24717

eh it depends on what people would like to do. i was thinking a regular gig but it could also be mission/scenario dependent. it all depends on what the GMs think would enhance the game.09/06/2017 at 22:15 #24722
No one has yet mentioned scripting. These things do not extemporise well 🙂09/06/2017 at 22:18 #24724
see this is why i’m great at being XO but should never have my own ship 😀
we need one o’ them too. someone from intelligence should be roped in here!09/06/2017 at 22:46 #24730
Naval Intelligence? Isn’t that a famous atmoïdiot?09/06/2017 at 22:53 #24732
WHOM DO TOU THINK I AM?!09/06/2017 at 22:57 #24734
By the way, I enjoy listening to Leonard Hall’s recordings of intership mission traffic. I usually pull it into Audacity and run the silence suppression filter. It is extremely helpful for reconstructing missions.
Would it be worthwhile for the XO or comms officer to do that on individual ships? I did it once when I was commanding Excalibur and the feedback was very helpful.09/06/2017 at 23:04 #24736
