For those of you playing the Aetherlight on a Windows PC, you may have noticed something a little different today. If you haven't been on yet, why don't you pop in and take a look? Mac users should see it soon. For those on iPads, sorry, it will be a while yet.
P.S. More is on the way!
Do you think for the new chat feature, there might be two options so you can chat with the whole server and one for just you and the others in the room? That would be handy if you are playing with others and lose them by accident!
Sfdp and also thank you so much! This such a cool new feature!
Eventually. There are downsides to server-wide chat though... i.e. someone who is annoying can be annoying server-wide until we get around to functions like being able to mute people, etc. we were thinking that keeping it confined to the zone would be prudent. -ML
Emotes are done as / commands. E.g. /apologize
See how many emotes you can figure out. Maybe I can come up with a prize for the first person to figure them all out
You know the old ones /wave, /dance, /shrug and /beckon. Find the rest!-ML
Well I’m not near my computer and I won’t be till like four days but I’m so excited to see it!
Mech, this is incredible! Thank you so much, I love it!
I'm sorry, did you just say new emotes??! ALL RIGHT, I'M SIGNING BACK ON.
Also, can you please add a "hide chat" option so I can see what I'm doing when I'm not talking to someone?
Yes, as in LOTS of them... I wont spoil the fun by saying how many-ML
I found /highfive! Trying to find more now.
Hey my dad is letting me use his laptop so I’m hopping on
It's awesome, @Mech_Lightspark! I think it would be cool if it were a little smaller, but it's still pretty cool.
@Lilliana_Umbrellascope I was talking with @Emily_Purplebottle and @Arona_Copperburst1 about that and we were thinking it would be cool if there was a friend system where you can be alerted if one of your friends log on and be able to chat with them no matter where you are.
But, hey! This is awesome. It's progress and I'm all for it!
Ugh! I wish I had Windows just so I could see this! Good on you, @Mech_Lightspark and team! @everyone, I want to see more screenshots.
That's a good idea too!!!
@Hanna_BrassheartYeah, sorry. Windows is better as I've always said.
Thank you. I like the idea of seeing server wide, but I could see it being a little bit congested. I think the friend idea would make an excellent solution.
WELL! That wasn’t very compassionate.
@Mech_Lightspark I found a couple issues.
Here's a screenshot of #2.
@Hanna_Brassheart, here are your screenshots! (Basically little messages just pop up in the chat. I can see how this would be useful for role-playing, actually. )
So far I've found /highfive/hug/shiver/scream/scared/sigh/gasp/nod/agree/disgust/envy/tired
@Peregrine_Appleclock found /smile/laugh/grin/frown/cry/fear/goodbye/annoyed
and I think some others. This is awesome! Thank you, @Mech_Lightspark! This new feature will add greatly to the chat.
I literally just thought about if I couldn't access it how would I feel. I'm sorry for doing that to you. (Windows is still better. )
@Peregrine_Appleclock Just hit the chat button and it will turn it off and on.
There is a 'hide chat option'. Just click the chat button where at the bottom left corner. Worked for me!
Aw man Jacoby beat me to the punch line
