The squad messages :#Zwarriors:message or whaterver and it turns out green. I'm getting annoyed czu I always think it is a private message. I beleive we should change them to another color this way we don't get confused between that messaging to the full squadies and a private message it sounds alriht to me. What do you guys think.

in all the font.bm2 files in continuums graphic folder, there is an unused purple font, and it would be hard to make a new fontset just to add cyan blue, it could be that color. i think it should be used for something like wehn you type \me laughs it would say Yoshiba laughs, it would make chat cooler. i got the idea from another game that had it that was almost as chat oriented as subspace.

I know its a quick message to the squad. But atleast make it a different color. We can still use it as the same function but it'll just be able to tell between whether it is a squad message or just a plain old PM.

This isn't the place to post such a request. A change like that would require some reworking of Continuum itself. Head over to the Continuum Development forum over at SubSpaceHQ and post this over there. :p

Alright I don't check other boards. Only the ones here and the ones hosted by this and ZW board. I'll head on over and post. Just wanted to see what people thought of it :D

It is most definitely an excellent idea, and it wouldn't take much to get it working. :)

Yoshi your idea is good but it wouldn't work. Imagine how fast people would be like

/me sighs
/me is rubbing his thighs in a seductive manner "come here yoshi"
/me fucks you in the eye for spawning me
