Innsewerants Space Agency

Eavesdrop (ksp 0.24.2+)



Download latest ISA Eavesdrop

Welcome, Eavesdrop is a mod to help find objects of interest like easter eggs/anomalies without making it overly cheaty/not in line with gameplay. The mod is based on the assumption that objects of interest emit a signal in some range, the detector will pick these up and display signal strength divided by bandwidth range. Everything emits on certain ranges, perhaps in time you will start to recognize these patterns before you've even seen the source of the signal!
