Chat prefix and r,g,b text colour.
« on: October 20, 2015, 04:54:38 PM »
Just 2 ideas for the text chat:

A way to set a prefix for a players name in text chat. Ideally based of a history they have:

If
HasHistory [Rank1] [player] [true]
Then
TextChatPrefix [Rank1]

I know the above is a script but it's the easiest way i could think to describe it. Ideally it'd be part of the game options and would automatically be set and change when the history does. if the player doesn't have the respective history then no prefix is shown.

Second one is an option for the player to choose there TextChat colour. This could be another option when pressing up + A. A basic list could be shown (red, blue, green, etc...) and maybe a final option for the player to set a custom colour using r,g,b

or it could be this script.

Prefix [text] [r,b,g]

so the prefix would be colored, and Prefix script, shows up in the text messaging and other stuff also like notify scripts.

To further expand on the TextChat Colour... I'll use a script as an example again as i have no idea how this could be implemented as a world default or system setting and it's the easiest way to describe it.

The world owner could set what colours are available to use and who can use them. Any colour not set would not be usable (except for the current default one).

[TextChatColour] [name] [r,g,b] [admin|clan|player|history]

So for example:

[TextChatColour] [r-ed] [255,0,0] [admin] (i added the - in name to stop it changing my text colour)

Would show red as an option for any admins to use and no one else.
