It came to my attention that the whole chat system is decent at best. It clips text, doesn't allow users to check history, and is overall very annoying to work with. I'm currently reworking the whole system this weekend.
Here are some features to expect with the new chat:
-Longer chat times
-Different chat channels including globals, regional, village, and whisper (coming later)
I know these should have been added from the beginning, but I want to make the social aspect in Colonies up to par with most modern ORPGs and MMOs.
