Chat Guide

new chat

There’s been some changes to the way our Chat works on TAW. We now have Chat Channels you can switch between. These new Channels are;

Primary Channels

  • [Talk Channel] – 80 Block Radius (Alias: t)
    The Default Channel.
  • [Yell Channel] – 300 Block Radius (Alias: y)
    Reach others in a larger radius with this channel.
  • [World Channel] Global – Worldwide (Alias: w)
    A global channel accessible to all players that can be heard by everyone in the world. Useful for making announcements, asking a question, making a trade offer, and things of that nature.  Please don’t use this channel for conversations in close proximity.

Special Channels

  • [Staff Channel] Global – Worldwide (Alias: s)
    This is a Staff only channel. Note: This is a private channel and can only be used by Staff!

To have conversations with someone over long distances with no cool-downs you can utilize the /msg & /r commands. You can also send mail to other players even if the are offline using the /mail command.

To switch between channels, type the command /ch <channel alias>

For Example; to switch to the Talk Channel, type /ch t

You may also send a singular message to a channel without having to switch to it. Simply use the channel alias you would like to send a one-off message to. For Example; /y hello!

You can leave a channel by typing /leave <channel alias>
When you do this you will no longer hear messages from this channel until you join it again with the channel switch command (/ch <channelalias>) Not Recommended in most cases.
