Faction Chat

It would be nice if you talk to your faction in multiplayer without needing to go through mutliple screens or push many buttons.

Something simple, clear and easy to use. In other games it is often setup that Global chat uses the default "enter" button while faction will use another button say "/".

Example: If I want to type "hello friends" to my faction I would do the following"

  • 1. Hit "/" key on my keyboard
  • 2. Type the message
  • 3. Hit enter.


Simple and fast.

I think it's practically a must in any team-based multiplayer to be able to access private and public chat via the primary chat interface.

On most servers I play on, everyone just spams in the General chat anyway unless sharing secret information.

Examples:

[Enter] message [Enter] => Send to Global

[Enter] /f message [Enter] => Send to Faction

[Enter] /w player message [Enter] => Send to player


A staple of any multiplayer chat experience!

Reminds me of the Warcraft style of chat. Simple yet effective

There is a possibility I've played some World of Warcraft in my time...

It looks like this has been implemented in the mean time. Not quite as OP suggested, but in the WoW way.

Hello, thank you for the good idea. Lets see how popular it gets by voting.

I use https://www.macrorecorder.com to record a macro and bind it to the unused keys on the board. One for each chat. Works for me... I am sure you can choose any recorder you like. Even logitech has a built in recorder. Why not add a recorder to the game? hmmmm

This is an old request. It must have been improved since then because the game doesn't match the description anymore. Starting a chat with /f ONCE switches this and any further chat messages to be directed to faction chat, and starting a chat with /g ONCE switches back to general.

Yes with the addition of the choice of making chats local based.

Your suit can have a range of sending/receiving messages of X meters. And antenna's can relay messages.
