I am looking for a tool that will give me an audio warning when this happens:

- When I get attacked
- When someone enters the local chat (toggle on and off)
- When I approach a destination that I have specified

Is there such a thing?

A third party tool that does this, i'm pretty sure would be illegal. As it's giving you an unfair advantage.

However, a few things you could do in game is, turn up the volume, set the low shield warning to like 97%.

If you are using autopilot then you could turn up the volume and it would say something like 'auto pilot disabled, waypoint reached.'

Nothing you can do about the local one.

Okay that is too bad.

I think there should be better audio playing when you get attacked instead of having to notice the combat timer if you are looking at other things.

Not really, you should be paying attention to what you are doing.

In-game already supports an audio warning when your shield/armor/hull get below a certain point. So just set that and turn up the volume.

This tool won't do what you want, for the reasons already mentioned, but I find it useful and I believe it is fully legal.
