Names / Chat / Messages
« on: October 17, 2018, 05:22:30 pm »
So I heard these things are getting some work, too.

Just to make sure these are not overlooked, I'd like to bring up some points here:

- Names... you can forget about that completely, anywhere else than in chat you can't read them, and it's not because most people have foreign or hard to read names. ^^
They are just too small and should not scale down below a certain level, on a common resolution while being zoomed out max (mandatory) you can't read any name,
not even speaking of moving yourself or someone else moving while trying to read.

- Important messages... like who's looting your stuff, you won't even know there was a message if you're not staring at it nonstop.
There needs to be a separate chat channel for such messages.



If you're at it anyways, I'd recommend making chat channels fully customizable and easy to use, just have like 2 or 3 default, like:
global chat,
group chat / pm,
system messages / combat messages / environmental messages
but have a "+" next to it enabling to add any number of channels and rightclick->customize each one as you want, to show exactly what you want.
And don't forget to include the options to customize the sound for all that.

Hello!
Thanks for your suggestions. It's not the first time we hear about these requests so everything is noted.
