View Full Version : How will we meet up on a planet?

Self-explanatory again :-)
Do you think you will be able to message each other or something? And if your familiar with a 3-D program callled ActiveWorlds (www.activeworlds.com) you can teleport to a person if he/she is on your contact list (buddy list). Also you could pop in coordinates (n, s, e, w). It was an interesting program, you could build and and chat and all other kinds of stuff.
But, I digress. Anybody know how will we interact and meet up with each other in game?

There is a private message and email system built right into the game (last I heard). They're not going to let you teleport, because that would be used to get out of combat, and take away from the feel of the game. People can send you coordinates of their location, or of a place they want to meet, and you can set it as a waypoint on your map.

Just a quick question about waypoints, can you activate multiple waypoints at a time? If so, how will you distinguish between them?

So many questions, so little time :)

I'm pretty sure you can have multiple waypoints, but I'm not sure how to tell them apart. You can probably put labels on them.

Yeah, you're probably right. Maybe you can assign different colors along with labels?

The chat in game should be able to handle it. Some PA's plan on trying to use a program called "gamespeak" I think it's called, so you could actually talk to each other. Also keep in mind you can always ALT+TAB out of the game and use a 3rd party messenger like AIM or MSN, is works pretty good that way....
Waypoints: You can have tons of waypoints, you name them whatever you want them to be called, you locate them on your planetary map and activate/deactivate them whenever you want to get to one of them. You will surely want to have one located at your home/PA Hall/POI's.
Hope this helps.
