hi, pretty cool

little idea, in key bindings you can add shortcut to show better chat window, but the shortcut doesnt close it

I know ESC does it , but it would be better if the shortcut did

and when I start new game, the mod creates new three level called "player" on its own, have to delete every time, bit annyoing

@ikit kappa its a feature to easily address a player.
When you press keybind it doesn't close window because it was meanted so

Can you make the chat unclickable unless Enter was hit?

That is a nice feature 🙂 - chat is unclickable unless some message is visible (or you hit enter to chat yourself).

A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned

@scout_more_often usually i use it for warning teammates about exps, snipes, nukes and etc. For requesting energy or mass, ofc there are some special cases.

Version 10 coming:

  • Rework of shadow mode due to some logical issues with it: you will be able to switch between modes, shadow mode is same as before but whole window is unclickable and calling window with keybind for it no longer returns to default, only changes focus on it.
  • Removing redundant functionality of calling phrases (second checkbox)
