Chat Channels

Post by Lunatik on Fri Feb 12, 2016 10:06 am

Anphillia uses all default chat channel plus many new ones.

Here's the list of them with:
- Who can see and use them
- What can be said in those channels
- Whether they should be considered IC or OOC

Shout
- Only DMs can use it. Everyone can see it, except people with the immersive mode ON.
- Things that DMs want to say publicly, it is a privilege that they have.
- IC and OOC.

DM
- Everyone can use it, Only DMs can see it.
- Send a message in this channel if you need a DM. If a DM is available they will send you a tell.
- OOC

Event
- Everyone can use it, Everyone can see it except people busy or with the immersive mode ON.
- This is the player version of the Shout channel. It is to announce important important events. If you didn't plan that event for more than 3 days, it is probably not worth to be posted in this channel. Do not reply in this channel, send them a tell instead.
- IC or OOC

Action
- Everyone can use it, Everyone looking "for an adventure" can see it.
- This is an alternative to the Event channel, It is the place to say "Level 30 looking for a party"  or "I am dead, can someone come resurrect me? I am in the crypt - level 1". Do not ever use the Event channel to say something like that, use the /action channel instead.
- OOC

OOC
- Everyone can use it, Everyone "looking for an OOC conversation" can see it.
- This is a place where you can ask a question concerning Anphillia. Replies can be posted in this channel too, but do not get side tracked.
- OOC

PVP
- Everyone can use it, Everyone in an arena or looking for both PvP and an OOC conversation.
- A place where you can talk between power gamers, please keep your PoWeRzOr trick in this channel.
- OOC

Sex
- Everyone can use it, Everyone looking for an intimate role-play and an OOC conversation can see it.
- Try to use this channel only for serious ERP ideas that you have and would like to RP on Anphillia. I wish that this channel could be used as an alternative to the Action channel (so to propose an intimate role-play event)... it got trolled too much with obscene stuff so now people also need to be looking for an OOC conversation to see it.
- OOC

Build
- Everyone can use it, builders or players that like to use the Aurora Toolset - and that are looking for an OOC conversation, can see it.
- A good place to ask for a house builder or to discuss how to do something in Toolset.
- OOC

FFA
- Everyone can use it, only people that set that they want to see the FFA channel will see it.
- It is the place where you can talk about whatever you want. Still, do not spam it or troll it voluntarily.
- OOC

Talk
- People that are in a listen line of sight (not behind a door for example) and within ~40 meters.
- Use it to make your character talk ICly.
- IC (unless you start your message by //)

Whisper
- People that are in a line of sight and within ~3 meters.
- Use it to make your character whisper ICly.
- IC (unless you start your message by //)

Quiet (/q)
- People that are in a line of sight and within ~1 meter.
- Use it to reach only people that are right next, like on the same bench and even then, some some bench are too wide.
- IC (unless you start your message by //)

Silent
- The person that is hugging you (within 0.5 meter).
- Use it to make your character talk to himself or whisper to the person that is hugging them.
- IC (unless you start your message by //)

Yell (/y)
- People that are in the same area.
- Use it to make your character yell ICly
- IC (unless you start your message by //)

Party
- Everyone in your party
- Anything related to your party
- OOC

You can set what you are looking for in your player list account settings menu (Class Radial Menu -> Player Tool 1 -> [Settings] -> [Player List Status] and [Account settings]).

Additionally to the conditions above, the following can affect whether you will see a chat channel or not:
1) When your immersive mode is ON, you will only see the tells from people that are in the same area.
2) When you are set as "busy", you will only see the Shout and Tell messages.
3) When you are are set to see the FFA channel, you will also see all other public channels.
4) When you are in an OOC area, you are automatically considered as "looking for an OOC conversation".

You can use the !WHOSPY command to know if people near you are in your /wisper or /quiet or /silent range.
