Adds a Fallout radio to Raft

A Raft mod to implement a Fallout radio

Version 0.2.2 (Fixed Issues in Version 0.1)

Radio reloaded from a saved world will now switch back on automatically if it's on the hotbar.

Version 0.2.1 (Fixed Issues in Version 0.2)

Issues Fixed

  • Forgot to set permanent mod on after debugging
  • Fixed audio source created in the wrong scene (main menu instead of game world)

The main issue was not testing the mod in permanent mod mode. The bug in v0.2.0 was not detected when the mod is loaded inside the world rather than loaded inside the main menu. The problem is resolved by making sure the audio source is created only in the game world. Version v.0.1.0 did not have this problem as the audio source was created as part of the mod's game object rather than within a separate game object in the world which is necessary to facilitate 3d audio. In the future, I will make sure to test the mod in permanent mod before release.

Issued Found

  • A radio saved with the world will be off when reloaded. Temporary solution is to move it to another hotbar slot to turn it on. Will be fixed in the next release today.

Version 0.2 (Do not download, has a breaking bug!)

  • Resolved an error with versioning
  • Improved audio system (not noticable to the player)
  • Improved code stability (less chances of mod crashing)
