~ Item description

The Headset is an item used to access radio chat channels.

Function[edit | edit source]

The headset can be used to listen to/speak over Text Radio Chat (Default: R) and Voice Radio Chat (Default: V).

It also requires either a Battery Cell or Fulgurium Battery Cell for power, but doesn't consume it as of v0.10.

Radio channels feature was added in v0.10.5.0. There are 10 thousand and one accessible radio channels (channel 0000 to channel 10000), making it possible to do things like secret communication on another channel or devices that react to commands sent on a specific channel. It also features the Mem option to store the current radio channel as a preset, up to 10 presets from preset 0 to 9, all of which are set to the first 10 channels, channel 0000 to channel 0009, by default. Because the channel number only has 4 digits max, channel 10000 cannot be typed in and is only accessible by switching from channel 9999.
