Originally posted by Anofalye Instead of limiting chat to range, wouldn't it have been better to limit it to an amount of players? I mean, if someone in the middle of nowhere OOC: Can someone explain me how to blablabla, 3 persons see that. Another in the middle of a crowded area, and 2000 players see it? Wouldn't it be better to have it work on the X closest players? It would be easy to check and prolly less lag. No matter the way it is done, I see many discussions dying either way, as peoples move away, without zoning, so they expect that the other player see his answer, yet the other player never saw his answer...so seemless = antisocial feature on this precise point, if based on sole distance or if based on X closest players, peoples will not see answers, yet they will think that the other player saw it, while he never sees it...bad...really bad. So maybe you have to keep in memory all the players who read you, or that you read, in the last 5 minutes...which would be incredibly heavy to manage for a server and thereby create lag, which is something we don't want...so the choice is to have an anti-social feature or to bring more lag...there must be another way, but I just can't see it. I hope they do, because anti-social features are not cool in MMOs...and lag is even worser.
Starwars Galaxies, An Empier Diveded, That's what it says on my box anyway.
y e mail on websites and whatnot is so i don't forget my log in information.BTW if you all really think the demon baphomet comes from D&D originally, you better think again.
Wow, I am sorry guys. I have intentionally broke threads to derail a conversation and they have never been as successful as this one with the simple question of, "curious about your name, it sounds familiar". I'll have to try it next time I want to derail a thread.
Worked better then my usual, "My donkey is blue"
Not so nice guy!
