Improved Chatbar 1.2

Improves chatbar readability. Useful for roleplayers/multiplayers.

  1. xaliber
    This mod tweaks the chat box in order to improve its readability. Useful particularly for roleplayers/multiplayers. It's made to be used with Enhanced Chat Readability, but you will still be fine even without that mod.

    Client-side mod, safe to be installed for multiplayer even if others don't have this installed.

    • Tabs have subtle colorization to indicate category ("All" is green, "Log" is cyan, etc), matching vanilla colorization;
    • Tabs have better contrast between active and inactive tabs;
    • Text color in typing box is now white instead of green;
    • More readable "Party" chats;
    • More chat history limit (from 64 to 512);
    • Longer chat duration before fading out (from 5 seconds to 15 seconds);
    • Whispers from other players appear on every channel (instead of only on "All").

    Inspired from:
    Chat Duration, Chat Mod v2.1, Whisper Chat.
