Why are there no nameplates or chat bubbles in this name? Even for the NPC's?
I know there used to be a setting in the options during beta to turn them on and off and it couldnt be used because it was shaded out but it seems to have dissapeared in the offical launch.
So why are nameplates important to me?
Without nameplates the world feels wrong. Players feel lifeless simply because communication is difficult, I struggle to see who is a npc and who is a player. When i am crafting, i find it annowing that I have to mouse over each npc to find out what/who they are to find the correct one. I know some people will disagree with this and say that a world without nameplates or chat bubbles feels real and forces more people to use chat addons like skype and ventrillo/teamspeak.
I find it even more frustrating when a NPC is talking and there isnt even an option to turn on subtitles, let alone chat bubbles. So if there is noise going on in the background, Its possible to miss what is being said.
Ive serached for addons with no luck. I even read that the game is incapable of such addons being made due to the current API being unable to track players (no idea what that means, ive never ventured into the world of addon creation). Lets hope they impliment them soon.
