[DST] Status Announcements 2.12.1

1 Screenshot

About This File

Status Announcements is a mod that lets you alt+click various parts of the HUD to announce in chat things related to them. Controllers can announce stuff too, and the buttons for announcing show up on the HUD elements you would alt+click when in Inventory or Crafting mode. You can also find this mod on the Steam Workshop.

Things you can announce:

  • Current hunger/health/sanity/wetness/log/temperature status. Alt+clicking your health badge will announce "I'm in perfect health!" if your health is full, or "I'm mortally wounded!" if it's very low. Sanity and hunger have different announcements specific to them ("AAAH! Stay back, beasts of darkness!"). Announcing temperature requires Combined Status.
  • Craftable items in the craft tabs. If you know how to build it and you have the supplies, it will announce that you'll make one. If you don't know how to build it, it will ask if someone can make you one (e.g. you have a Wickerbottom and no science machine yet, and you want her to make you a backpack). If you know how to make one, but don't have the supplies for it, it will say "We need more [craftable]s". You can also announce skins for items you have.
  • Ingredients for crafted items. Let's say night is falling and you have two twigs and one grass. Alt+clicking the grass in the torch recipe will announce "I need 1 more cut grass for a torch.".
  • Items in your inventory and backpack. Since alt+click already does something for these, you'll have to hold down shift as well. This will announce that you have the item, and how many: "I have 10 dragonpies."
  • Items in chests or other containers. This works the same way as inventory ones, but will announce something like "We have 8 dragonpies here in this icebox".

By default, these are all whispered-- only displayed over your head-- but holding control in addition to the other modifiers will enter it into global chat. For controllers, hold Menu Misc 3, which by default is left-stick-click.

Character mods can add their own quotes if they want. You don't need to worry about mod load order, just add the quotes to GLOBAL.STRINGS._STATUS_ANNOUNCEMENTS. See announcestrings.lua in the files for this mod on the format of the announcement strings. Make sure that you check if the table exists, and if not, make an empty one before adding your strings.

Thanks to everyone who helped me writing lines for this mod:

  • Silentdarkness, SuperPsiPower, OSMRhodey, AceMurdock, and Lying Cake for writing character-specific strings for English
  • Vinicius Araújo for translating to Brazilian Portuguese
  • GoforDream and Shang for translating to Chinese
  • Gum for translating to Spanish
  • deshkas and Shiro for translating (partially) to Russian
  • Redhead for translating to German
  • AFS for translating to Korean

Add webber and wigfrid quotes pls. Kinda think this would have been done a LONG time ago.

First, taking a tone like this with someone who does this on their spare time for no personal benefit is not a very good way to get them to do more work on your behalf.


As for the quotes, I don't know how I managed to miss that... I'm really busy nowadays though, and I find lines pretty hard to write, so if you can write some or find someone to write some, that would help.

@rezecib - I can volunteer writing those lines, if you send me list of exactly what you need (not DST player yet) - something like:

half health:
half mental state
half hungry

...etc. I've done such work for mobbstar before, and he seemed happy ;)

@Estel, Sure, and thanks :)


Here's what I have so far: http://pastebin.com/H0FrfH65

(I managed to write Wigfrid's lines, but feel free to write your own version of them, they'll probably be better :p)


It has the thresholds commented in at the end of each line so you can see when it'd be used.

Ugggggh, somehow following comments here failed me, and I had no idea there was actual reply - sorry. I'll get to that during next few days.
