    Local chat is a feature that I and many others have wanted to have for some time and with the release of the latest modding tools I decided to give it a shot. Here is what I came up with :)

    Current features:
    • Local Chat can be sent by typing /loc (/l) before their message
    • The players can yell to increase range of local chat with /yell (/y)
    • The players can whisper to decrease range of local chat with /whisper (/w)
    • Display a list of commands and their descriptions with the commands /help
    • Display the server rules with /rules (split into multiple pages if more than 5)
    • Allow server admins to change rules stored in rules.txt file
    • Display the version of the mod with /version
    • Admins can broadcast messages that display as notifications instead of chat messages with /broadcast
    • Private message system, allowing users to message a specific user directly with /pm
    • House only chat, allowing users to send messages only to users in their house with /house (/h)
    • Check server mod version with /serverversion (/sv)
    Features in development:

    Planned features:
    • Action command with /me
    • Report problems or malicious players to admins with /report
    • Animation commands for waving and facepalming

    - ! Chat history mod does not work with this mod !
    - Server messages mod seems to work fine

    Update 14/06/2017
