I've been planning to do a system like this for a while, and finally knuckled down and got somewhere with this. Basically, Graal Communication is a Graal chat room. There's nothing especially amazing about it yet since I've only spent a few hours on it, but I'll keep you all updated here.

Screenshots are attached. If anybody would like to help out with either Graphics or Scripting, let me know via my Email ([email protected]).

Images have been attached.

How about you explain a bit what the outcome is supposed to be exactly?

Graal Communication is a Graal chat room
What else is there to say? It supports internet explorer? It's primary function is to server as a chat room for Graal players.

What happened to Grimecraft?

0PiX0 was caught up with more important stuff like Era iPhone and didn't really have the time to continue development. Seen as there were no other scripting staff, the server fell apart.

Have you been living under a rock? That was a while ago.

There's already a chat room feature in Graal that nobody uses.

You should've tried continuing with grimecraft, it would've been a good scripting exercise for you.

I really don't see a point in such a chat room

Emera,

I think you would be better off using your scripting abilities to help other servers instead of creating a bunch of tiny UC servers.

Make it for groups or guilds on graal. Would be cool to have it voice enabled and use it like vent. Give it more then just a chat feature maybe...

What would really be amazing is to script a in-game guild / party chat window. If its possible to tie in the graal mic and stuff into a guild channel.
Just a idear.

Graal dev team irc is still up... and it's a bit creepy that the same people are always there.

No offence Emera, but you always try to re-invent the wheel. The wheel has been here and it works fine. You either haven't A) searched the forums to see if your "new ideas" have already been made or B) been playing long enough to understand that people don't care much about re-introductions of old ideas. lol

The idea seems rather nice but as others said there is already an IRC that nobody really uses. So maybe try adding some sort of mini-games people could play while chatting or something along those lines.

Re-inventing the wheel is a good thing for developers trying to hone their skills. Here's why:

- Gives them a good chance to practice.
- They have a completed model so they know what they're working towards.
- They know what they're doing is possible because it's already been done.
- Usually it's easy to find support if you get stuck.
- Sometimes improvements can be made to "the wheel" that didn't exist prior to them "re-inventing" it.

I'm gonna do something oddly, that I haven't done for you before Tig.
