I hope I communicate this clearly. I would like to see a feature (and maybe it already exists) for a user who is not logged in to 3dxchat, directly in game, to be able send and receive PMs from some sort of chat application with active on line users. This would show to the active user just as an in game PM. If you need more clarity just ask and I’ll do my best. I know a lot use discord but that requires an active user in 3dx to be logged into and monitor 2 platforms.
So I download the new beta patch yesterday and discovered a new feature; offline private messaging. Some time later that day an email arrived to the account which I registered 3DX telling me someone had sent me a private message. There was no content, so I had to log in to read what was written. This, of course, might change and the body of the text could be included in the future. I have some reservations. When I log out.... I log out. Anyone I wish to speak to, or communicate with, out of game I do via Skype or similar and do so through choice: both on my part and that of the other person. I worry this new feature will not enhance connections between good friends but may allow less well-meaning players a method to harass others, even when they are not in-game. It also undermines privacy - I'm sure there are number of people who play who don't wish their RL connections to know, and an email entitled '3DX Chat' is indiscreet. Of course, you can spam the email but I'm uneasy about the principle of letting anyone on your friends list message you out of game. Sometimes, we all have people on that list we keep there rather than remove, because of the hassle doing so might cause, and would certainly not want that connection to spill into real life. I wasn't a big fan of being able to PM people in different locations within the game when that was introduced but I can see why others might like it. I would have preferred it limited to one PM from other locations and treat it like a cell phone. Sometimes being alone with someone in there is practically impossible. But this I feel, is a step too far and is taking the game in a direction which makes me a little uneasy. What next, I wonder? Thoughts?
