    Just a small little thing but of course is popular in many other games.... Emotes. And I mean real ones, not text based /me emotes used in roleplay. It'd be nice to just have /dance but other actual interactions with fellow players like giving /hugs and whatnot :p

    I would love to see dancing in the game in general
    Maybe you can pick which dance you character does during customization

    I'd love to see a variety of emotes in Starbound, from simple ones to animations that look like your character is talking or nodding, to something more complex like dancing. They would be extremely useful in roleplays!

    I would love to have a dance option for excessive rocking out as one of the dances
    although animating the hair might be a hassle : /

    "/dance" is very close to a must imo. I would also love it if the person you're hugging would join in the "same" animation :3.

    Oh noes! Now all I can think about is zombie mobs doing the Thriller Dance.

    A dance? That sounds fun! I can imagine a crowd of players doing the same dance at the same time. :rofl: Maybe even a dance only you and your clan members do?

    Clan-specific dances might be a little too much, Marlon. However I do like the idea of being able to change your dance depending on what other people are doing.

    There is a Korean MMO called Archeage which has a thing called "dance mode" instead of a normal emote for it. You can walk around and fight during it too, and potentially play the whole game while dancing. Also if enough people get together (about 5) and dance, disco lights start going off.

    Not saying I want to play through Starbound while dancing (that would be incredibly silly), but special things happening when a lot of people dance together would definitely be an example of the caring touch that has made me love this game unconditionally.

    weapon appeals could be nice, such as twirling a gun on one finger or something.
    But change the animation depending on what hand it's in and stuff.

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Can we have a high-5 emote please?
    ...Which could be quite silly if everyone else in a server just leaves you hanging, so you're running away from monsters and meteor storms yelling "Come on guys! Just do it so I can fight with both hands!"
    ...
    That would be nicely silly.

    I want do dance for the entire game! Do ALL the dances! My bros would get really angry if I was using dance mode while manning a turret or something... Most intense dungeon dive we do, and I could just dance the entire time... :love:

    /dance how bout a hotkey or something that lets you say something with a hotkey like the bind command for Source games.
