This is a great idea. It would really make the game feel more "alive" for the new players, and it would be easy to make Soldat connect to some IRC channel. F12

Any suggestions? I need more support so it can come into effect.

Well, you could make it connect to the Soldat IRC channel, couldn't you?

I would say let soldat's lobby have an IRC interface (possibly with sub-channels for like clans maybe) - If it were any more complex than simple chatting - or if it would take up too much space of the servers-list then I would also say that the chat should have its own tab in soldat.

Can't think of anything original to put here...

Yeah, good idea. I support the IRC interface, but not make it so like IRC.

Searching for a server with you buddy, requesting clan scrimmages, and general banter make this idea very worthwhile. It doesn't have to be anything crazy, and maybe depending on the filters you have on you could talk to a specific group of people. Really convenient.

Yes, I like this idea. Having xfire and IRC while playing soldat lags me...

You get the point, Cappy yeah I agree with you. Soldat isn't meant to be played with like 4 different programs running (Internet, Xfire, mIRC, and something else).

And also, if you play fullscreen you're not able to see some of the applications you have opened.

Yeah, maybe each server could have an option to include a chat room for people waiting to get in or who just want to talk. Phil's idea is good.

Nah... use IRC instead.

IRC is the reason I don't do gathers.

Yeah, I find all the people in #soldat.gather all "dead" or something, because only 5-10 people are actually live.

I forgot to add, you can add friends and talk individually with them.

IRC is mainly used for gathers....not to chat with your friends and stuff.

So yeah, whats the point of going to a gather when you're looking to talk when most of them are either 1. Playing in a gather, or 2. Just being there to idle.

In some ways i Agree, but in others i dont. I mean it would be great to just talk to other people in the country without haveing to jump in a server. But, theres always the problem of spamming and Flooding and the like.

F12, Nice Idea But still some Kinks that need to be thought out.

You can find me in the masturbation thread. At least that one is somewhat more interesting

Yeah, I think the spamming thing will be resolved once this is implemented into the game. I also posted about this already.
