Ahem...ok, 1st post on forum is in Game Design :) Cheeky, eh? Anyway, long time lurker...

Having watched the Spaniel blockade the other day, got me thinking on how the blockades are run by participants, and also got me thinking on what may be a good idea:

Presumably, on the bigger ships, there's the b-nav officer, and also one or more XOs walking the decks, looking for lazers, d/cs etc. The idea I had is to have a vessel only officer chat (/voff) to allow the officers on board to chat without filling up the whole crew's /off chat, or the flags /foff.

I would see this of benefit both in large crews, where there may be multiple pillages happening at once, and also in blockades.

(search for vofficer showed nothing, so either my search skills are rubbish [they are!], or it's not been suggested before)

Cheers

Don't think it's been suggested. Probably not an upgrade over truly customizable chat channels. Also, on a trip with a lot of officers, the spam stays close to the same.

Probably easier to implement than fully customizable ones, though. And marginally easier to use.
