Are we supposed to pretend we are talking or are we actually typing IC through our KIs? I would like to get a statement from someone from Cyan, if anyone has such info. I am adding a poll as well to see what others players think about this.

What's really funny is, when you look around and see a whole room full of people with their wrists up by their faces...

I don't think it really matters. There are usually enough IC reasons to explain why everyone's typing or what the difference is between voice chat and text chat that it's never been an issue, as far as I know.

Since there is a voice chat option, I think that the text is typing,however difficult that may seem on a KI.

I think typing is just talking. Otherwhise you wouldn't even have to use /shout, would you?

Only private messaging someone is typing I think.

I don't think it really matters. But I lean towards text, unless it's a KI-mail, as being speech.

Otherwise all those without microphones are stuck in Uru Live typing frantically into their KIs despite having mouths on their avatars... how silly. ;)

good argument :D.
Of course voicechat would be speaking, but does that have to mean that typing in public channels can't be speaking? Of course not. Plenty of people won't be able to or won't want to use voicechat, will they all never be able to speak, IC, in game?

I'm going with this, since it's how the real "KI" works ;) Don't ask how...it's a state secret.

Although, to be honest, I voted "who cares" just for the "IC/OOC" types.

Another argument for text is speech... you're not pushing buttons on your KI when you're typing, unless you've opened the big screen.

Look at the KI itself.
PM is like typing an sms on your cellfone and send it through the ki.
Other typing is direct communicating or speach. You are not fysicaly using the KI, which is also true for the commands to generate avatar animations.

Oh yes, i voted "who cares"

Also, if it's typing, why does the avatar dance if you type /dance? What, you have to announce it by text to the people you're standing next to? They don't have eyes?

Limited telepathy, perhaps? :D

Actually, that's not exclusively a KI function - you can also hit Ctrl + (whatever it is) to dance.

But then, if KI text is speaking, why can we "hear" each other "speak" when I'm at the Ferry Terminal and someone else is at the Library?

:wink:

(Maybe the KI has a built-in microphone...?)

Is it open now?
I tend to just ignore things like that. Many games have oddities in the range. Same question would be why we have to use shout if the group is too large, even if they're not far away at all.
As far as I'm concerned that's just a bit buggy.
