[Feature Request] Addition of "outputRange" and "gain" config entries for objects with itemTransmitter simulation.
Assigned, UrgentPublic

Description

At some point post-1.0, the local range of radio VOIP in the soundscene was changed such that radio transmissions are not easily audible in 3rd person. This issue is particularly noticeable in vehicles, where walkie talkies are almost inaudible when entering 3rd person view.

Additionally, the overall volume of radio transmissions seems to have been reduced, making long distance communication difficult for those with hearing difficulties.

Additional Information

The addition of two config parameters for items with simulation type itemTransmitter would allow modders / server owners to address these accessibility concerns.

outputRange = <distance in metres>;

and

gain = <float multiplier>;

The latter is already present for the Megaphone, and the former would be the inverse of inputRange.
