Cannot sleep, because this spooking around in my mind. Maby its not the problem wich key chat is useing. but more a problem thats something you use less is placed under the enter key, i preffer anyway to have the ‘goto’ option under different key. and nothing on the enter key or chat. But i like dthat chat under the enter key, how much you like to see people use voice you eally cannot without chat, just a few points
Voice can be nice if both speak the same language good. But voice start to get a big problem if 1 of the sides dont speak the same language. Then you need to fall back to chat with help of (google) translator. you keep always haveing language difficulties in voice and chat.
Voice is not always good to use, as example when your working on script of build. You can easy follow text chat and if you missed a piece you can read it back. no distraction. If you use voice… and try as example to script. I know one of them need to suffer. so or you scripting got slower and worse. or you dont hear everything what the other telling in voice, and that get worse if the language is different. And people can only get your attention with chat.
You not always can not wear or dont want to wear a headphone always. or use microphone because background noise or haveing the line-in already in use. Its still pretty hard to hear someone on the speakers and notice someone is around you.
Avatars/character and Rollplay, you cannot do good in voice, the reason is that in many cases the characters are not the same as the voice. and it happend once to me that soemone used 2 words in voice. and it did put the world short upside down. the voice really did not fit with character. This could maby fixt partly with a good voice morpher build in High Fidelti that change male to female and the other direction and also male to boy/girl child etc. because there enough rollplays that need all of them. Only tried for fun years ago a voice morpher, and the result is not that i can say good. But maby thats changed. But you still keep haveing problem problem 1, 2 and 3.
So, i hope i did not forget anything, at least i like to see the “goto” function moved away from the enter key. because its less important then chat. you need to chat more then you need to jump from domain to domain. and for that we have or get other ways like the directory inworld accessable. Prefferable have the chat back on the enter key, it worked perfect to quick check if someone told you something, or see whats happening. But still agree with @Ciaran_Laval and @Ai_Austin that other key is fine the backslash is not to bad as long nothing is placed on the enter key. Also the goto is right now double annoying under the enter key because the window keeps on top of everything else on my desktop.
My list of whats impotant to access, but i keep voice on nr 1 because thats what hifi likes to see.
- goto domain …
Note added: need to admit that im still pressing the numeric enter to open chat, its easy to access key. But you always get that goto thing now.
