Hey! My husband and I are wondering if there's a way to increase the amount of text you can enter in on one go, in the text box. As it stands currently, it is very limited (Maybe enough for one vaguely descriptive sentence) and the breaks can cause for some chat confusion. Additionally, me and my S.O. are avid role-players and would enjoy having the ability to use Wurm as a font for creative writing.

Is there any way to manage a script that can extend the chat by any large amount? Or does an option exist already? I have been searching for it thoroughly but have come up with no results, thus far.

I don't think anything like that exists.

 

Looks like the input box is limited to 200 characters, while the client->server network protocol is limited to 255. server->client protocol seems to be less limited (32k).

 

Increasing the send limit would need both a client and server side mod. It might be possible for players on the server to receive longer messages without a client side mod.

 

The biggest problem is that reallyHandle_CMD_MESSAGE does both the reading (which is limited to 255 characters) and all the logic to handle the chat message, command dispatching, etc. It's an ungodly ~1100 LOC mess, that would have to be somehow modified or split by the mod to support longer messages.

Huh. So it would be needlessly complicated to set up this one? That sucks D: Thanks for taking a look at it, regardless!
