Chat bubbles are a proposed game mechanic, particularly favoured by role players due to its positive effect on local communication. The idea has been proposed with grunting/mumbling sounds and 'chat'-like animation whenever a player is talking in Public chat.

Function[]

A chat bubble in Darkfall would be a bubble that appears over a player's head every time they talk in Public chat with the text they entered in Public chat.

Advantages[]

  • They draw attention to players talking near each other in Public chat.
  • They give a more immersive method of communication, which heavily impacts role playing.
  • They give more purpose to Public chat, which is currently rarely used by most players.
  • They add realism in a hunter's perspective by making it easier to spot players who are talking out loud.

Disadvantages[]

  • They could potentially cause lag. Its unknown whether this possible lag would even affect players who disable chat bubbles however.
