    Hi Folks,

    I've just been talking to a few people and have already passed on their feedback to Dave. He suggested that I start a thread here for everyone to give their feedback and he will be passing the link to this thread directly to the guys at MA. Bare that in mind when you give your comments and keep it civil and respectful. Normal forum etiquette is expected here as per usual.

    Constructive feedback only. If you are only going to act like a douchebag, don't bother posting (in fact, you'll be doing me a favour if you don't as then I won't have to expend the energy to delete your post :p).

    • When using chat, pressing enter doesn't get rid of the previously typed text. If you press enter again the same message is spammed in chat.
    • As above, no chat spam detection seems to exist.
    • As a consequence of the above, you have to delete the previously typed message each time you want to use chat. Very slow and annoying!
    • When using the new PM/Conversation system, you have to click into the txt window each time you want to typoe a message and then click to send it each time. Very annoying!

    Is there any way to get rid of the message center and contact icons when minimized? We have icons in the action library that we can place anywhere we like to activate these systems, no need for these 2 icons to be onscreen.

    Rookie chat needs to be separated by planet. The newbies do not need to be confused by advice to go to "Port Atlantis" to get started on missions.

    - Spam globals (now from all planets!) with red/yellow messages above chat window must be removed from screen and placed to separate tab.
    - Highlighting System tab by yellow on each message must be removed! Or made it customizable
    - Color palette in Main tabs and System must be customizable
    - Position of message center tabs must be adjustable

    You can't choose read or write in a tab, you have to have both. So u setup a soc tab but can't see local chat 'cause then the write defaults to local. So basicaly you can chat away to soc only if you want to be deaf to everyone around you.

    The society tab under a person's contact info is not getting updated all the time (may display the info from the last ava you looked at).

    - There's no option to choose custom color for font. Those we can choose are all too light and pastel/crayon looking ;)
    - There's no way to change background of chat window. That texture drives me crazy. I'd like to see proper one color background with option to change background color too.
    - There's no way to change font size. From 1920x1080 and up chat is really hard to read.
    - /listchannels doesn't have option like * for all channels
    - There's no way to write one quick message to choosen chat. In past if i've got active local chat i could write /s mymessage to message my socmates nad still be active on local chat. Now it looks like we can't message choosen channel fast.

    Another theme for windows isn't best idea tho. Now we have like 5? maybe it's time to make one theme for all UI ? (except loot windows which is vintage and looks great)

    I think it's all for now but there will be more ;)


    I think you can fix that. Just go to Options -> Hud -> and untick Keep main chat focus when entering text. Dunno if that is exactly what you need.

    I agree 100%
    that flashing msg is too big if you playing EU in window mode.
    It is cool if you do nothing and just watching HoF and globals, but when you are in hunt run becomes very annoying.
    Must be optional.

    Fully agreed. It was bad enough that the previous chat window was spammed with hofs that couldn't be filtered out. This is worse by a factor of pi cubed.

    And the message center and friends minimized icons do need to be moveable. They're kind of messing up my current layout.

    Thinking about the Rookie channel and the abuse there we're already seeing... I recommend setting a few trusted player moderators for the who can ban the trolls and spammers and keep the channel clean for the newbies. Have a clear set of rules etc. Shouldn't be hard I think to find enough players willing to do that.

    I also recommend limiting it to each planet, though if it's kept clean and helpful that might not be 100% necessary.

    I agree, don't want to see stuff from other planets in a newbee channel.

    It needs to be kept planet specific, I think, else people, newbies especially, will get confused. And some of the things I saw in there thus far have been horrible and made me turn it off, so moderators of some sort would probably be a good idea. Having a separate universal chat may or may not be a good idea, but Rookie channel definitely needs to be planet specific.

    Yes, and you after you send the message, just hit enter again to enter the chat box again (it remembers the last box you were in, Main, PM, etc).

    Also, this is obvious but the HOF banner is partly covered up by the chat interface.

    Each planet should have its own official trade and official global (chat, not swirlie) channels, don't leave this up to players to have to make.
