After playing multiplayer for some time, joining random people and having an absolut blast, I miss interacting with the people I play with...
Yes, there is the Emote-Wheel, but It hardly ever helps me say what I actually want to tell my fellow players. Saying "Hello" or "Thanks" trough that is ok, but even then, why cant I type that out myself? So that it feels like Im actually enganging with the community and its players...
It would allow for so much deeper interaction between players. Fighting a tough battle and typing out "GG" or "Nice job!" would do wonders for morale (for mine, not the NPCs :D) ! Planning our next move on where to scavange, what mission to do or asking for goods that you're low on. Ask and answer questions about gameplay, actually TRADING loot between players. Hinting at dangers, giving tips, or just some banter.
It feels hollow and weird sometimes. Like no one knows what we are doing. The voice chat is frustrating, as it only works for some it seems...
So, I humbly ask for a simple text chat.
- All players can see what you write no matter how far away from them you are.
- Have it placed somewhere simple by default, like ENTER
-Make it fade out if inactive and make it fade in when pressing ENTER
Thank you for reading!
