Utherverse Wiki

Chatting is the main way to interact with other Utherverse users. You can chat to them by sending messages and read conversations.

The resizable Chat panel's default Local tab shows any messages sent by users in the same location as you. Note that anyone on your Ignore list cannot read anything you say, and likewise you will not see any messages they send. Users are listed by account age, with the oldest directly under your name.

One notable way of communicating in the chat window is via purple domain Broadcast messages. This is used for trivia games, contest, informational messages and other events held at the location.

Messages received on tabs other the one you have open flash and make an audible sound, this audible sound can be disabled in settings (F7 or /settings).

Private messages[]

This feature communicates with another user privately. VIPs can open a new Chat tab to another User by right-clicking either their avatar or their name in the Local tab of either the Chat or Friends List panel and then selecting Private message icon from the pop-up menu. The illustration above shows a private message tab for chatting to user _Vixen_. You can also create a private message to anyone that is online by typing /pm username message. You will see a message: Opening private channel to [username]. If the user you are trying to message is not online you get the following . error message: Failed to create private channel. (Could not find target user)

Group chat[]

VIPs can create a chat channel for private use with more than one person. This is usually achieved by either by typing /join Example password or clicking the Channel Viewer icon Group chat icon where you can manage your group chats. The password is optional, you can omit this when creating a group chat. The same method is used to join the channel as it is to create. The illustration above shows a group message tab for chatting to a group called Example.

Once you are in a group chat, a notification is displayed when anyone joins or leaves the channel.

Note: Basic members can join an existing group chat but cannot creat a new one.

Channel Viewer panel[]

Click the speech bubble icon ChatPanel openChannelViewer on the top of the Chat panel to open the Chat Viewer. This pop-up panel has two tabs, Group Chat and Voice Chat.

Group Chat tab[]

This tab has two sections.

The Available Channel area shows a list of chat group channels that you are currently connected to.

  • Click the Plus icon to start a new channel or join an existing one.
  • Select a channel and click the Focus button to show that channel in the main Chat panel.

A group chat channel can be saved so that it re-opens when you login. To do this, right-click the <channelname> in the Available Chanel section and choose Remember, A Green tick is shown next to the channel name. To stop the channel being remembered, follow the same method, clicking Remember again to remove the green tick.
