Default Colorize the chat

The chat should have different colors (like the new scoreboard or like in Ostfront) to make it easier for players to distinguish between server messages and actual player chat.

A suggestion post I lifted from a prior thread concerning chat...



Yes - chat needs some color added to help differentiate messages.

The colors attached to each faction right now where it reads how many reinforcements would be ideal for the chat (similar to Ostfront). That way while I'm in battle and focused on the middle of my monitor my eyes can actually pick up on the particular colors and communication can be a lot better.

Would be ideal for players without mics to be noticed if they are communicators in-game and better overall.



As of right now I ignore all chat because it is a white blur on the left-hand corner of my screen.

Also, just as important to add player location to the voice commands and general chat too.

Example:
Ivan22 entered the game.
Comrade Kaizer (Church): Need smoke SL.
Fritz15: This is an example of random enemy chat that isn't Team chat; no location shown to enemy players

Doesn't look great on the forums here but you get my drift. Something so small that can go a very long way.

I wouldn't complain, but not exactly a high priority for me.

How about they just change the color of the Name( name of person typing the message ) for the message instead of the entire message.

Obviously yes, I asked Ramm if they had plans about improving the chat and he said they do but they're busy with other things at this time. Probably bug fixing, fine tuning classic mode and other features, also the game still doesn't have all its features, like multiplayer campaign so they have to work on that too. Perhaps a mod team could help them out? They could ask TWI if they can put it in the game as standard. Surely it can't be that hard to code compared to other things in the game.

I don't understand how this wasn't in the game in the first place. The chat system is bad. It's hard to see, you can't see what side someone is on, and it gets spammed with non-chat messages. Try commanding a tank and reading the chat at the same time. A big oversight.

This is how it should be, I'd also think a small "chat box" that show up a chat history when you press Y U or I to chat . I sometime miss important teamplay messages because of the lack of history and have to use console to see . Anyway, chat colors may help with that alreadly.

All Chat:

Russian:

Ivan1: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam posuere condimentum nisl.

German:

Fritz1: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam posuere condimentum nisl.

Team chat:

Russian:

Ivan2 (Location): Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam posuere condimentum nisl.

German:

Fritz2 (Location): Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam posuere condimentum nisl.

Squad chat:

Fritz3 (Location):Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam posuere condimentum nisl.

+1 to Burgerlolz.

It would be nice, but I can see it not being a huge priority right NOW. Still hope it happens though.
