Extended Chat

Recommended Posts

I have wanted to make some additions to the chat for a long time now, but always had things to do so it ended up on the back burner.

Recently though, my interested in the idea was reignited and now we have this mod 🙂

 

Features:

  • New chat UI
    • Visual redesign
    • Scrolling animation
    • Fade in/out
  • Emoji support
    • Twemoji pack available on github
    • Very easy to add your own in your mission file or mod
  • Player, group and custom role mentions (discord style)
  • Chat commands
    • Add as many commands as you like, to do as many things as you like 😁
  • Suggestive text
    • Suggests emojis, mentions and commands based on what you're typing
  • History viewer
    • In depth message history with filters and search terms so you can find any message
  • Settings
    • Toggle channels on and off to keep the chat feed tidy
    • Mute players
    • Censor bad language
    • Modify the appearance and behavior of the mod to your liking
  • Server-side logging
    • Log all text communication
    • Log when a player starts/stops speaking in VON
