    Hello CubeCrafters,

    The Chat Overhaul is finally here! We've spent ages going to lots of our old messages, and giving our chat some love.

    Server messages
    We've spiced up lots of the messages that we have had for a while. We've also converted our chat to contain links that are just the words so when clicked on they'll open webpages. No more long URLs in chat! For example, here is our new join message, so much cleaner! :eek:

    Player messages
    You can now hover over other peoples usernames in chat and we'll display some information about them. Information such as their level, rank etc!

    Team chat and Global chat have also been reworked to be much nicer to use. Your name is now coloured to match your team colour, and also, as with the tab list and names above players, your teammates' names are bold in chat too. This means you can determine friends in Global chat much easier!

    Chat filter
    Many of you will be glad to know that the chat filter has been added to more chats. Every message that you send now will be sent through our chat filter, keeping our chat much cleaner and more positive.
    Thanks to @andyschofie for keeping on top of all our blocked words and phrases over the past few months!

    Commands
    In the parties release you gained the ability to use tab complete, this helped complete usernames and subcommands. But we weren't satisfied. :oops: Presenting a better tab complete solution! The Friends and Party systems now make use of a much more sophisticated tab complete system. Pressing tab will now analyse your location in your command and best figure out the next word. For example /fmsg (A command to message a friend) previously just tab completed to and username, however it will now only tab complete to your list of friends. This means you need to type even fewer letters for [tab] to work.

    Commands now have a nicer looking help menu. This include the /help menu as well. You can also click on a command in chat, and it'll either prepare the command or execute the command.

    New response to /msg
    I'm just going to put this here, anyone that has already messaged me a screenshot of this this morning... uhhh, why?

    I'm really sorry but I don't like the update to be honest, I liked how it was and the old chat is more Cubecraft than this.
    I made a thread about it but I guess that the chat will be like this for a while now.

    “Glad to know” glad to know you’ve taken away our freedom of speech? Nope. I really dislike this update. People seeing our level is something I dont like . I view it as invasion of privacy in a way. The worst part is the chat filter. Seriously? Friends chat? Party chat? They’e supposed to be people who u know and play with. Why block what they say.

    Except for having blocked the words "offensive" in the party chat also...
    Awesome chat update!
