Speaking of configuration settings, I really don't see a problem with increasing the max range of modems if you want. It's even fairly realistic to do so.
Yeah, but satellites are awesomer.
Also nothing short of almost-infinite range will let you communicate beyond loaded chunks.

By the way, immibis, the modem peripheral has lots of interfaces and such that are easily implemented by a custom modem peripheral.

You can comunicate with in infinite range to any loaded chuncks, even when there are unloaded chunks between.
But I still like the idea of satalites.

So I just read this post for the first time. My general vision of this is a relay/satellite type of block that can communicate with computers maybe using a new event, "rednet_relay" or "rednet_sat". So:

[Relay]
>id
Relay ID: 1
>edit receive
local event, id, message = os.pullEvent("rednet_message")
if message == "What is your ID?" then
  rednet.send(id, os.getRelayID())
end

[Computer sending the message]
>edit send
relayID = 1
message = read()
rednet.send(relayID, message)
local event, message = os.pullEvent("rednet_message")
print(message)
This is the basic jist of the relay (Through my eyes) This definately sounds like a neat idea and I hope it is implemented soon ;) This will make for some new interesting builds on servers. Maybe a huge database of information easily accessible by players far from the computer/database.

I like this idea. Maybe you could make Ronald Reagan's legacy if you have ICBM on your client as well.

Yo dawg, we heard you like killing things, so we put a laser on your satellite on your missile on your torpedo on your submarine.

So I guess you did the +1 and I kinda guess that I did the other one but I'm not sure :P
But back to the topic.
I would like to see this happen since it would be awesome and I would'nt mind it at all.

I'd make the turtle a sattelite instead. then have it accept a protocol to allow you to send it to different coordinates at max altitude. I use repeater towers on my server, but for the high earth orbit stuff a wireless turtle would be great.

What about if this was the recipie?


S = solar panel
E = Emerald
D = Diamond
I = Iron
R = Redstone
M= modem
N = Nether Star
Wing = W

I I I
SSE
I I I

Antenna = A

INI
IMI
IRI

Satilite Computer = C

EEE
ERE
EEE

Satilite

SAS
