The V-Chat
« on: August 10, 2014, 01:07:45 pm »
If at all possible could we get the V-chat running again.  From my understanding of the patch notes this form of local communication now needs to be turned on by the server master to allow it in-game.

V-Chat is an in-game chat that has a local radius on the map (press the "V" key to activate and a little mic will show up on your screen to show that you are live), and it allows players who are near each other to communicate.  This provides for a more interactive gaming experience, and will allow players to make the "meeting" with a little more information.  For instance, you can approach someone's base and "V-chat" a greeting, which the other player will hear from their own speakers, and then be able to react to either on text chat or with a return voice-com.  Likewise, if a player approaches your base you can V-chat a local statement to learn if they are friend of foe.  This allows communication between players on the map without need for typing, or telling the whole server, which can facilitate trades, etc.

On this server we don't have to worry about people sneaking up to your base and yelling through your speakers, or making ghost sounds, so I'd like to see it reinstating.  In-game chat is a good feature for so many reasons, as long as you don't have little kids playing the game.

Has V-chat worked better than it did back in June? That's the last I played and it was supa-buggy back then. Sometimes you'd hear someone and sometimes you wouldn't.

If it's working then I'm definitely all for it! I wear headphones so please no jumping up from behind a shrub screaming like a spider zombie. I'm already jumpy enough in the game. :P

Sad thing is I never knew it existed..... until I was in Diers once (other server) and someone must have been around the corner or something. All of a sudden through the speakers.... scared the crap out of me.

I didn't know it existed either but that would be really helpful.

It does exist and work but you have to enable client side from your options menu. It is off by default.

Calling it the "V-chat" sounds naughty.
