[Feature request] Differentiate chat from ATC/Obs/Pil/...


Recommended Posts

I guess the title say it all.

 

I suggest being able to differentiate between different chat/message cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts]es by Font Size/Color.

Adding a separate point under General Settings->Chat handlers could also be useful to differentiate the messages by logic.

 

It shall help to reduce clutter and help focus on important messages. As CTR, I easily get 10 chats open in 1 hour.

 

To the available chat/message cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts]es, I suggest dividing private messages into active ATC [Facility Type <> OBS] / Pilot / OBS

 

 

PS: On a sidenote, I would be happy to have .busy / .busyall command available that would differentiate Pilots+OBS / All exc. SUP messages

On a side note to that, sending "busy" messages towards other controllers is not really advisable, as your fellow controllers must always be able to coordinate with you. (If you use voice for all your coordination it's of course not a problem.)

This is exactly what I want to solve with this side-note. Ever tried .busy at is is now? It is different from VRC and sends "busy" to everybody contacting you.

Does the text override work in ES? In VRC you can enter a text message beginning with 3 asterisks (***) to create a private chat message that appears in red with a distinctive sound. It's not clear whether this overrides that controller's busy status (in VRC).

No it doesn't, as soon as you put a * in it sends the message for some weird reason

 

Would be good if this could be fixed

By default * is set as primery frequently send key, have you tried to change it and then test?

Ok well the *** over ride works from ES to VRC users

 

But a ES user cannot be Text overridden by the use of *** method
