[Suggestion] Chat Quality of Life (Size, audio cue, bug)
As a mute player, the chat is my only way of communicating with my friends, and it can be very frustrating when games get it wrong. Here's what Icarus' chat would benefit from:
1. Being able to change the size of the chat window. Some people find it small and difficult to see when someone has sent a message, causing them to miss it.
2. A toggle-able audio cue to aid in notifying players when a message is sent in the chat.
3. Fixing the bug where messages that take up more than 1 line don't show more than one line in chat.
I have been relying on in-game chat systems in games for 8 years now, and a lot of games still get things wrong with their in-game chat system. Icarus' chat is already very responsive and feels great to use in that regard, but it's absolutely necessary to fix the 1 line bug, chat size, and add audio cues.
I hardly use the chat at all myself (except for asking team mates to join Discord voice channel), but I can totally understand your request!
Additionally, long mission objective lists need to be collapsible, as they overlap with chat and make it impossible to read. A high-contrast chat box would also help - as white text blends in with the snow in the arctic.
Hopefully this is an easy fix, especially the audible notification sound!
Yes please in some cases the chat is not possible to read..
