    Suggestion Title:
    Add a "typing..." above players head


    Suggestion Category:
    Roleplay Server


    Suggestion Sub-Category:
    Players interacting with each other


    Suggestion:
    Simple suggestion which will clear up some confusion and is a general 'make life easier' development idea. Once an individual begins typing a /me, /do or even a way to implement it so when they're viewing their B or O menu it comes up a small pop up in faint colours above their head to indicate it so you're not wondering if the individual is responding to your roleplay or whatever.

    I feel like this would be a good addition. It'd help so much to clear out confusion whether the player is just stalling RP or that they're actually doing something. But of course, some people would just type slow on purpose.

    I support this idea anyway.

    Plus one from me. It stops the awkward pause where we're not sure if the other is typing or not.

    I'd rather wait for a good response and be aware I have to wait for it than move on whilst the other person is still responding.

    I enjoy this idea will benefit all situations and add to the immersion as we would understand the person is about to do something and doesn’t need to be met with “hey u still there”

    Breaks immersion imo. I'm voting no as this isn't "the city we shall not name"

    Breaks immersion, but /me and /do doesn't?
    HUD doesn't?
    Loading bars don't?

    It's still typing all this would do, Is inform the awaiting RP party that they are responding and haven't suddenly gone AFK...

    It would be a good implementation to have

    No what's breaking my immersion @Chanty is people not talking for 20 seconds because they are typing.

    I very much support this suggestion. As @Shorty pointed out, awkward silence is more immersion-breaking than a typing notification. That's just my opinion, of course.

    I have to agree with this suggestion, I have read a couple of responses and am confused about how people are saying it will break immersion??? Breaking immersion is suddenly barking like a dog when getting arrested. Not having a little "typing" symbol above your head informing other players you are still there but you are just righting a /me or /do, it also helps stop this "HELLO? you there?" stuff, but I love the idea 10000% wanna see this implemented so we can be more aware.

    Hmm ur actually right, it doesn't break immersion any more than the person going blank for 5 seconds. Idk tho I still don't know how I feel about more floating text on my screen

    I support this, I had an encounter with the police that would have went a lot better if this was a thing.

    This overall is a great suggestion. I can seriously see the benefit with this.

    Please add this. Too many people are trigger happy when you are trying to type something in /b
