New communication channel

Recommended Posts

ConorJD    0

My suggestion would be to create another communication channel within the game, exactly the same as direct communication but with the max distance it can be heard being two meters.

What good would this be, you say.

It would allow you to speak to a individual/group without everyone within 20 meters listening into what your saying, in real life I'm able to talk quietly, whisper and shout so why not have the option within the game?

If something like this is implemented maybe it can open up the idea of using ACRE again? This channel could be used for all radio communication as well. It would give you more room to be discrete when using the radio and would also add to the realism.

Let me know what you think.

Very good idea but I am not sure if it is possible.

What about group chat? When you use group chat only the people in your squad can hear you. If people are around you they can also hear you like direct chat. I think squads are a decent idea. ;p

Id love there to be a "Whisper" or "Quiet Communication" channel but I'm not sure if its possible within the defaulted ARMA engine (< Meaning NO ACRE)

I wish we could steal the feature from ACRE where its perfectly possible to do this, without bringing the rest of ACRE.

Vehicle chat works like this, if I am not wrong.

Oh I was unaware of this, do you know the rough range?

Not possible in ArmA, channels are hard coded into the game. ACRE allows you to adjust the distance and volume of your voice, but only because it is based on TeamSpeak.

I think Vehicle chat has a range of few meters, unless it works like a direct chat, or not at all.

Vehicle channel can only be really heard right next to the car, and even then it is muffled. Group channel is heard in the exact same way as direct channel if you use VON, but text in group channel doesn't display to others. Not sure about if people in your XML squad can see the group chat.
