|5.5.9 Communicating in the Game|
|One of the most important skills in the game is communication. A fleet that does not communicate is a fleet that meets destruction. To bring up the chat bar, press the enter key.
o By default, your chat is set to "Faction". This means that the messages you send go to every player on your faction. Faction chat shows up as bright green.
o Team chat sends to every member of your fleet/clan on the server. Fleet chat will show up as teal.
o Yell sends your message to all nearby players, including enemies. Yells show up in red.
o Target sends your message only to your currently selected target (if it's a player), and shows up in light blue.
o Occasionally you will see a bright yellow message. This is a scream, a method for staff to send a message to every player on a server.
o Server messages will show up in white or light grey.
More often than not, you may find that chat comes in too fast to read. DarkSpace automatically keeps a log of chat messages sent and received. To access this log, press the F4 key. You can scroll through the message log and move/resize the window using your mouse. To close the log, press either F4 or ESC.
