How are your tabs like chat set up?

Recommended Posts

I just moved LFG to its own tab since I only want to see it some times.  I took all chat out of General since the Help and LFG made everything else hard to find.

 

So I have talk tab of most chat except team and LFG.  Team I just have in the lower pane.  LFG is its own tab.  I still have the combat tab but I never look at it.

The Broadcast spamming in Atlas Park is what prompted me to start learning to separate my tabs.

 

LFG has it's own tab.  Broadcast has it's own tab.  The alleged "Help" channel has it's own tab.  The Consignment House has it's own tab, but I shortened the name to "Auction" so it would fit.  NPC is another channel.  Rewards is a channel.  I took these things out of Global so that what happens in Global stays in Global.

 

I also have a tab called "Raids" which includes the Team, Local, League, Request, and PM channels.  I use that channel for Hami and MSR.

Yep!  All in the same tab.  For me it's because my attention span is... oh an email just came in.  Let me check.

chattabs.png.b975181e8cf0d4cf871085bb8e1f0de5.png

Global - Default Global Channel with all player channels removed.

Help - Help only.

Zones - Zone Alerts (Might remove this now the halloween spam has ended).

Combat - Default Combat without any reward type channels.

LFG - LFG + Tells (Gets moved around depending on what I'm doing, so I often have Help and LFG visible.)

League - League + Tells

Priv8 - Team + Tells

Rewards - XP/Drops/Inf/System/etc (I move this around too, if I'm solo of multi-boxing it's where it is when teaming it's often in the other screen/pane/tab.)

Incarnate Trials - Global Chat Channel, only one I'm in at the moment (this is Reunion so we're quite quiet).

Broadcast/Local are I think in LFG or Help, I tend not to "listen" to them much.

After all these years of playing, I should be more organized than I am.  Custom windows, and macro/keybinds to do everything in an automated fashion.  For some reason, I just can't seem to spend the time to do all of that, but I keep playing with the same default displays, and no automation; which probably makes it less efficient, and less fun than it could be.  I'll have to work harder on that.


What was no more, is REBORN!

oh - is there a way to set a template for your tabs and have load it for your character.  Or do you have to set up each character's tabs manually?

So, now that General is a thing, where did you put yours?

 

I slipped mine in to the "All" and "Server" Tabs.

General goes into its own tab named "General".

I actually don't follow General channel because I've never had a good experience with general chat channels. How is CoH's? 

 

I just have 3 tabs -

Chat (Help, Team, Local, Broadcast, League, SG, private messages, etc)

Looking For Group (LFG, Private Messages, Everlasting TFs global channel..)

Quiet Time (Just npc dialogue and cutscene captions)

 

For the top half I haven't actually set much up yet. Just have Global and Combat...

I find that General REALLY depends on which Shard you're on, and what time of day it is.

On Everlasting, for example, we have "regulars" at certain times of the day.  Some of these regulars are just cute and fun.   Others are toxic enough to have merited GM intervention on a few occasions.

Oh it sounds like what I would suspect. I just find on some global channels there is too much noise that I'm not interested in, which I don't enjoy. I quite like the Help channel for general play because it is more focused on answering questions and discussing game mechanics, and sometimes you can have a nice chat as part of that.  

 

LFG is a good one to keep seperate because you tend to know if feel like you're open to teaming or not...

I have one tab that is for NPC dialogues, scenes subtitles, system and rewards. Reorganised the default "Global" and "Chat", because some noise are on Chat, and moved some that I think is more related-able to Chat.

I removed Help and General from Global and installed General on the default Help tab.  There's enough General chatter still showing up on Help that I thought it an appropriate melding.

I have separate tabs exclusively for "Help" and "General".

"Combat" has been modified to only look at (non-healing) attack rolls. I'll modify this when I am studying damage effects. I.e. "Who is hitting me for what?!"

 

Private, GM and SG Messages appear in every other tab:

  • "LFG" is LFG + Zone events + Broadcast
  • "Personal" is used in missions. It has the the cut-scene, NPC dialog as well rewards and the team chat. I like having a 'log of the world'.

If warranted, I usually have another tab for "Pets", if I want to see exclusively what is going on with the pets.

 

AH messages are unevenly applied. Usually those are in "LFG".

Back in the old days I used to play with someone who only used a single chat tab and always had it on global chats so they never saw team/tells without swapping every few minutes. It always made me so anxious to think about having to do that all the time. WHEW *sweats*

I have General and Base Builders global chat on one tab, then local, broadcast and team on a tab, then Help and LFG share a tab.  Seperately, undocked and beside main chat window I have NPC and System.  Combat is in a hidden tab where if I wanna check it I push the 1 button and I push the 2 button if I wanna see Events.  Tells are on all three of my main tabs so I wont miss them!

 

Despite not being on any current tabs, Consignment House likes to spam ALL tabs to inform me they will be keeping my cash for now and I had best just come back later if I want it.  Blurgh!

I have changed my global tab to be NPC and just have NPC dialog.  I don't have general anywhere.
