Re: Chat substitutions
 
Searching didn't turn this idea up, so hopefully it's a new suggestion....

Now that we can use function keys to send customizable chat messages, it would be nice to be able to have a few substitutions available. The most obvious one would be $island$, which would be replace with the island your pirate is standing on (or, if on a ship, it would give the island the ship is docked at or closest to). Then you could have a hotkey for a message like:

Skellies on $island$

And, for example, if you are standing on Durian, it would automatically become "Skellies on Durian". In the same vein, $scene$ could be handy too, to identify your current location, be it a shop, house, ship, etc.

Is it really that tough to type "Skellies on Dirian Durian!" (evidently tougher than I thought! LOL) and the use a CTRL-C and CTRL-V to tell the rest of your crew, flag and hearties? Seems like a waste of time to me.
