"Incoming transmission"
« on: September 03, 2018, 03:48:26 pm »

There is an "Incoming Transmission" sound when a contact when the vessel makes contact with an artifact or a building on the surface.

First, where can I find that sound file? And second, are there any similar "human" sounds in the game? I'll gladly convert them to ringtones.

Unzip the .uqm file and look in the ui subfolder for .mod files. That might be redalert.mov

No, redalert.mod is what plays when you come into contact with an alien fleet. The sound that plays when your lander crew reports to you is simply ui\menusnd01.wav repeated many times.

Oh, I missed the 'on the surface' part.

Open it with an unzip program like 7-zip.  If you rename it with a .zip suffix, you might be able to just click on it.

Open it with an unzip program like 7-zip.

This is only necessary in Windows and maybe on Mac. In Linux you can just right click and choose "Extract Here" for any common encryption algorithm without having any additional program installed.

Would it recognize a zip file even if its extension is .uqm?

Yes. At least my Linux does.

It can probably recognize it by the gzip header (ie, the first few bytes of the file).

(Or I guess the zip header in this case.)

It's possible to get a Mac to recognize it too (I've done it for Blades of Exile), but it requires a little work on the programmer's part (some plist entries), which I imagine they might not have done in UQM.
