This mod does exactly what it says. You can extinguish nearby fires by blowing into your microphone. This mod will automatically take the system’s primary microphone. It is not recommended to deactivate microphone devices or to disconnect them. In some cases, the mod won’t recognize your microphone input anymore, so keep only one microphone active, but don’t let these negative facts influence your thoughts about this mod.
The mods works as follows: as you blow into your microphone (mean gain must be over 50%), the mod will scan in a cube with a length of 9 blocks around you for fires, that means you can blow out fires up until a distance of four blocks. The further it is away, the longer you need to blow into your microphone, so if you’re in a fire, it will take 0.5 seconds. If it’s 1 block away, it will take you 1 second and so on.
You may ask now: “How can I test my microphone?”. Press the minus-key (-) and a GUI with the title “Microphone test” will pop up.
If the mean input value doesn’t change or stays at 0, please check the connection of your microphone to your PC and adjust the sensitivity of your microphone (by changing the input volume in your mixer).
You don’t need to look into this GUI to know what your current mean input level is. You can also draw this into the HUD (ingame). Just click on the “Draw ingame” text to switch between the values “off”, “simple” (above) or “detailed” (below).
Calibrate your microphone!In the most recent version 1.6.4_2, you are now able to calibrate your microphone. Why? Because I saw a lot of Youtubers having trouble with hitting the 50% mark because of their high-resoulution microphones, so you are now able to calibrate your microphone.
You can access this screen by clicking on the “Calibrate microphone” text in the microphone testing screen. Hit the spacebar and blow into your microphone for three seconds. Not more, not less. Values lower than 10% won’t be registered.
In the end you will recieve a result whether the calibration was successful or not. If it was successful, then the new minimum mean input will be displayed in the square brackets.
